The Seventh Seal by WillisNinety-Six The Seventh Seal by WillisNinety-Six
Well here's a first for me! Done entirely on pencil, no computers.

If you can't tell, this is referencing the famous chess playing scene in the movie The Seventh Seal. Here's a picture of the scene [link]

For those who don't know what The Seventh Seal is about, it takes place during the Black Death and tells the story of a knight who meets Death, whom has come to take the knight's life. However the knight challenges Death to a game of chess for his life, Death agrees and then they both play chess.
Now, I know it kinda sounds like a silly plot, but there is much more in the film besides the game of chess, trust me. The film has a very dark tone due to the Black Death, and that's something I'm into.

The Seventh Seal is definitely one of my favorite films ever! (And my most favorite foreign language film as well)

On a side note: Princess Luna as Death? How is that not badass!

MLP:FiM belongs to Hasbro and was created by Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye: The Seventh Seal was distributed by AB Svensk Filmindustri and was directed by Ingmar Bergman

I think crossover universes can't go much more farther than this. Kudos to your imagination :)

I didn't get the reference, but I still think that this is a great drawing! The shading is very well done!

This was the second to last thing I expected to see My Little Pony fanart of, yet I couldn't be happier to see it.
