La Brioche di Celestia (Wallpaper) by ~the-gneech on deviantART

“La Brioche di Celestia” (The Muffining of Celestia) was not painted by Vincenzo Camuccini in or around 1798. What you are thinking of is “The Death of Ceasar,” which you can see at this link: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/ac/Cesar-sa_mort.jpg

Instead, La Brioche di Celestia was commissioned by @Foalpapers and digitally rendered by The Gneech in 2012, over the course of eight months, but principally in July and August of that year.

Although explicitly drawing on Faustian design and technique, The Gneech clearly made an effort to add his own flourishes, and was once quoted as saying he was particularly pleased with Rarity, but did not elaborate as to why. Some Gneechologists have said that this piece was one of, if not the most complex image Gneech had attempted up to this point, although others contend that his famous “Dover and Comfort VJ Day” piece or the first two pages of the short-lived “Arclight Adventures” comic rival it.

This piece is also believed to have led to The Gneech’s subsequent submission into a rubber room later that same year, where he repeated “The horror… the adorable, candy-colored horror…” for sixteen straight hours before finally passing out.

Of all the strange things that are happening in this picture, the one that leaped out at me was that Derpy Hooves was about to use up a perfectly good muffin in a manner other than eating it.

Well obviously, that's because this is Ditzy Doo. *nods*

I obviously don't get all the show refs, but I do have to say it's very impressive! Good job!

Thanks! :)

BTW, did you ever see my post about the new comic? I was curious if you had any thoughts on it.
