Weekend at Shiny's by Pony-Berserker Weekend at Shiny's by Pony-Berserker
Commissioned (and written) by :iconmattx16:
Art by me, of course.

The crystal ponies are ponified versions of Henchmen 21 (the green one) and 24 (The gray one) from the Venture Bros. TV show. Since I didn't even hear about this show prior to getting this commission, but after watching some clips, I think I'd enjoy it immensely. The gray pony in a hat in Panel 4 is Longhaul - an OC of MrPOSSLQ who donates to my 
Patreon account,
and the presence of his character in this comic is his 'reward'.
The pink/purple filly in Panel 4 is Pina Colada - a random background filly I decided to use.
PS: Shining Armor's magic is blue in the official comics, and I like it more than the TV show's version.

On a technical side of things - this was the first time I drew Crystal Ponies. They weren't as difficult as I expected. Textures did the trick. I used some free-to-uses textures: 1, 2 and 3.
From subtle things - I used 3 point perspective in Panel 1. You know, to be 'fancy' :P
While I thought this comic would be 'easy' and 'fast', I was too optimistic about 'fast'. It was rather easy, but it took a bit longer than I expected... Oh, well.

MLP and its characters belong to Hasbro. | Crystal ponies 21 and 24 are used as parody of Henchmen 21 and 24. | Longhaul belongs to MrPOSSLQ | 14/15-08-2014 EQD comic post
Special thanks to Midnight--Blaze and VoidChicken for their advice.

Do you want to see your character in my comic? You can still get a spot by donating to my patreon.  More details in the rewards section under 'hamstring'! You can also support me there with a symbollic donation as well!

technically wouldn't being the ruler of an empire make him an Emperor?

Not to mention they actually ARE unsanitary. Rumors of dangerous things are untrue, but (as snopes.com reports) "Diapers come off in ball pits, and half-eaten candy is routinely found in there. More disturbingly, syringes and knives have turned up in ball pits."

Probably the reason you don't see those things around much anymore...

You have to be born into a royal family to become king, it is not a position that can be married into, also, even if he had married a Queen and not a princess he would still be a Prince/ Queen's consort, not a King =p

Yes, but that's from a real world perspective. In Equestria, the Princess is typically the highest rank you can achieve, not king, so I would think the rules would at least be a little different. :P

Seems that "an extra hour in the ball pit" became a part of this fandom...

Also, if I recall correctly, Pina Colada is Berry Punch's sister. Though I've noticed that people tend to either ignore "Sisterhooves Social", or invent some crazy headcanons about it (i.e. "Sparkler, who's roughly at Twilight's age, is Derpy's daughter too").

The lack of a dead shining armor here is contradictory to the title! Actually... that's probably a good thing.
