Best Friends Forever by CrimsonMagpie Best Friends Forever by CrimsonMagpie
Friendship is magic! :icontwilighthappyplz:

But yea, this is nothing special, I'm just glad to be over that bout of artist's block. :P

I thought the best way to execute this idea was two separate images together on one sheet of paper. It's the same two mooncalves in both images, obviously. =p

The gun is real, tell me what it is and you get a cookie. :meow:

Thanks so much to *Azuris and `Katmomma for the DD, it really means a lot that one of my images is deemed worthy of it. :typerhappy:

And if you like this, then you might like some of my other mooncalf images, which are even better than this one. :meow:

(Thank-you so much to everyone who faves this, I'm afraid I don't have the time to thank every one of you individually :iconlovehug:)

Best Friends Forever by =CrimsonMagpie "Friendship is something important. You choose your friends, and you can rely on them, same as they expect to rely on you. A friend will stay at your side, for the best, or for the worst. This picture shows the importance of friendship really well, making it definitely worth a look!" ( Suggested by Azuris and Featured by Katmomma )
Absolutely amazing, this is a great representation of best friends, being there for each other at the best and worst of times. I love the contrast in the two pictures, the left with them carefree, happy, and enjoying life in a peaceful background whereas the right is when they are muddy, bloodied, and miserable. I'm curious as to why there's a tag on one of their ears, maybe they're fighting against humans or its like a military dog tag. I like the detail put into the right picture; the mud, blood, bags under their eyes, it really looks like they've been through Hell. One thing these two pictures have in common: these two are side by side as best friends forever. I also like how their poses are almost the same. Wonderful details, amazing colors, flawless anatomy, and a powerful message, this is simply an awesome work of art.

Is it an M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle?

It is indeed, well spotted (I didn't think it well-painted)! :dummy:

This is pretty much amazing. I'm at a loss for words, somehow, it speaks so much.
CrimsonMagpie Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks, I'm glad it resonates with you! The execution is clumsy to me now, but the concept is something that I think everyone can empathise with. :la:

I love it. Made me troll through your gallery, and I'm glad I did! Amazing, very unique works.

Oh holy f***

I saw this image when I was quite new on deviantart and remember it quite well (also the other one with the M3 Grease gun stuck in my head),
and now I found your gallery again through an other image, and now I read "Friendship is magic" in the description.

How, freakn awesome is that.
Very good work with the pictures, I like your mooncalfs and the way you draw.

And now I'm watching you, which I should've done so much earlier already.

Thanks, I wasn't aware this thing'd become widespread on dA (since it's not really that popular compared to many DDs), so it's cool to know that. =p

I couldn't resist adding that into the description, since it fits so well. :icontwilighthappyplz:

Also this gun is a M 1918A2 BAR, which was already said so often before me, I guess.
