I Move the Stars for No One by the-Orator I Move the Stars for No One by the-Orator
The result of me listening to the Labyrinth and Phantom of the Opera soundtrack while sketching

I'm still a bit unsure of my humanized Discord. A lot of people draw him as being rather old and/or bald. I dunno, I've always seen him as middle aged, if that, maybe 40 at the oldest, 35 at the youngest.
Also, I have him dressed....orderly for a reason but I wont say~

I'm a fan of Discord/Celestia over any other Discord pairings but I like to think that Discord harasses Twilight as much as he can XD

The background isn't exactly what I envisioned but meh, it will have to do.
Backgrounds are not my strong point....

Anyways, I'm kind of on a PS and Humanized Ponies high right now, but I'll do some more actual pony stuff soon so don't worry ;)

EDIT: Fixed up Discord's nose a bit, it was originally a little too square, lol

One of the best Humanized Discords I've seen so far, very nice! Loved the feels it gives off, too. :D

Looks cool
Doctorwholovesthe80s Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer

I agree that Discord, in human form, shouldn't look too old. Early forties at the most makes sense. I think the reason others draw him as older is because he's supposed to be as old or older than Celestia and Luna.

I LOVE how many people out there think of Labyrinth and Phantom of the Opera when it comes to Discord. It is so cool!

iRinda Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014
I think people draw him to look old just because he has white/gray eyebrows and beard. Okay, in my opinion he must be at least the same age as Celestia and Luna, if not even older, but that doesn't mean he has to look old (in humanised versions). Tia and Lulu don't look old either. Maybe Discord just has bicolored hair naturally? In animes there are many young characters with white hair (Inuyasha for instance). ;)
Doctorwholovesthe80s Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
True. It's popular to portray a fictional character as "older than they look" by giving them a youthful face, but with white/grey/silver hair. Like Sesshomaru is supposed to be, (what a couple of centuries?), old and he looks 20 something.
iRinda Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014
Yup, just like you said!
Still, that doesn't change the fact that both Discord and Sesshomaru are very mysterious and lovable characters (they are both my favs in their own series :D) no matter the age or the appearance. ;)

Awwww, you pull at my heart, lol. What a way to use Labyrinth... quite fitting tbh. Twilight as Sarah and Discord as the King of Goblins, Jareth. <3 I like it :)

So she saying I have to go and she has stars on her dress so he won't let go then he says I won't move the stars for no one

Wow! Twilight is Christine Daae while Discord is Erik. Who will play Raoul, Carlotta, Madame Giry, Meg Giry, Andre, Firmin, Reyer, Buquet, Piangi and Lefevre?

The style is incredible, really, one of the best Ive seen in this page. And the humanization of the two characters is great, no doubt.

Oh my gosh! I found the picture! I have loved this picture since the moment I saw it, but I've never been able to found it. I just love every part of it! I always imagined Discord to be around 25 - 30, I never imagined him being old really. Not really fitting for him in my opinion. x3 I wish I had the skills to make something like this, I could really use it!
JLRturner Featured By Owner May 17, 2013
Both awesome movies, combined with MLP and especially Discord? Epic! :D

This is one of my favorite humanizations of Discord. The suit and hair look excellent for him, and the size difference was a good touch.

Has anyone else wondered whether or not that's her Gala dress and not the dress from Ch. 4 that was supposed to have been destroyed?
MadNimrod Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
(Speeds into the room, creams Discord in the face with a Yellowfin Tuna, turns to Twilight with a bright red face)
That is a lovely dress!

Fun fact I actually saw this picture before I even actually watched season two... Me and my friend were looking up humanoid ponies and I saw this... I kept seeing Discord a lot everywhere... But didn't dare to even think who he was... Then I watched season two and this picture came to mind and all I kept on thinking was... "Discord seems to be a little touchy feely with Twilight..." Then afterwards I realized I loved Discord to pieces and re-watched the episodes convinced that he was making a move on Twilight and wanted to show my friend... However the result ended in me shipping DisPie instead after paying closer attention to Pinkie Pie. Go figure.

I got a Sarah/Jareth feeling in this pic, and NOW I know why.
Tracked this from an entry on Fandom Base, btw.

Generally I don't care much for the ponies, but I fell in love with Discord's design the moment I saw him. Seeing him humanized so well...I gotta love it.

I love the way Discord looks, one of the few good humanized ones, and I like how Luna still looks young, as she really isn't that old.(Well, she IS thousands of years old, but you know what I mean), and this just looks perfect overall. I love it :3
