One of my friends is a jouster (yes, a real, non-theatrical jouster, with a horse and everything). He is also a My Little Pony fan, and he really liked a drawing I did of Fluttershy and asked me to put it on his jousting shield. So, line art by me, paint by my wonderful boyfriend, Matt Schaar.
This is has been and will continue to be used in real, International Jousting Series events. The knight especially wants to wear it in honor of those kids who are picked on or bullied for their interest, particularly MLP fans. He is a full-contact knight and a black-belt in three different styles of karate. In his own words: “Yep. I’m still a bad ass even though I watch it. I break axes on skulls and kick people in the face. Rainbow Dash rocks too.”
