This is a commission by Bramble Rose - he wanted a picture of his superhero being trained in the sword by another superhero. Based on a thread of his and some of his friends on FFA (although non-anthro). He also requested that it be specifically cell shaded as such rather than my usual shading techniques. Not a real fan of cell shading, but I should practice it more.
The alicorn is Bramble's character "Morning Glory" - which is supposed to be a popular superhero comic in Equestria set immediately following the fall of Luna into Nightmare Moon. She has only recently been given the powers of an alicorn, along with a mythic sword, but doesn't really know how to use the powers or the sword yet.
The pegasus is Azal's character "Captain Nightguard" - an unpowered superhero who was one of Luna's Nightguard before she became Nightmare Moon, and had been part of the group that helped her defend the night from monsters. He now wears a steampunk jetpack and a metal wing that allows him to fly again.
