The Art of Trollestia by BlueHaakon The Art of Trollestia by BlueHaakon
I downloaded this near the beginning of my Bronyhood, and I gotta say, that guards face still makes me crack up every damn time :XD:

This was drawn by :iconlordgood: Go check out his page, he's got some cool stuff. Crazy style of awesome.

I really didn't do this comic justice, not much spare time with finals...
LOOK! THE ORIGNIAL! [link] click dat unz unz

(oh right. He gets full credit for the everything, as per usual. I just threw color spectrum on it. )

Edit: I always screw the upload over at least once... lo siento.
Colored this very fast before work.

Edit: Sweet Mother of Mary that is a shitload of notifications! Thanks to everyone that enjoyed this! :D

Yeah, and Celestia is like the strongest magic user in Equestria and she can fly. It's like infantry was used to protect tanks from enemy shell...

he's definately a noob. guards have the easiest, booring, and yet most desired job in the world. you get paid good just to make sure nothing happens and as long as nothing is happening you're doing your job. now we all know that equestria is just your typical fantasy kingdom and not a true utopia there's probably alot of threats they probably deal with all the time from the rampaging monsters, foreign invasions, and potential rebellions to more common criminal activities like robberies and murders. all unseen untill plot demands.

I always imagined that the guards are fun as hell when they're off duty. Celestia seems the type to incite prank wars amongst her staff.

And while the guard was busy complaining about guarding a tea party, Pinkie Pie was able to successfully assault the Princess's cupcake unobstructed!

Anyway, Great coloring of great comic.

It's a really nicely done drawing, and I guess you did a nice job coloring it, but I can't say I agree with its content. There's no canon about guard training. For all we know, it could be the shortest job interview in history:
"Are you willing to attack any force that directly threatens the Princesses or anyone else you are assigned to guard?"
"Yes."
"Can you fight?"
"Yes."
"Good, you're hired. Get your armor and headpiece; you can start next Hoovesday."

I suspect it's more a process of Celestia going "Yes, yes, no, yes, oh Faust no, yes, no, no, no, yes, yes aaand... no."
And then the huge bucket of whitewash arrives, pulled by the one Earth Pony named Scruffy (The Janitor).

Either way, benefits are probably good.
