Resonance of Friendship by dstears Resonance of Friendship by dstears
Just in time for season 5!

The mane 7 as the kids from Soul Eater. Just went with simple cel shading and big fat black lines to match the subject matter.

----------------------------------------

Used some textures from frostbo and someone who's no longer on dA.
Separate images available here: dstears.tumblr.com/post/115362…

-----------
Edit: Fixed Twilight's cutie mark and horn magic.

A very nice piece of art, I love finding work that displays my favourite franchise, but when its two of them mixed so well, it makes my day. :)

What does Rarity hit Spike with if she does a "Maka Chop" or in this case "Rarity Chop"

Hmm, that's a good question. Gem Chop doesn't really work.

WOW this is perfect!. I think it is pretty remarkable how it nails the personalities! (It's possible maybe AJ is a better Maka but the Spike-Rarity is too good of a pairing)

Agreed, Rarity is more obsessive than twilight, and twilight is more of a reader than rarity.

That's true when your looking a some pony from the side, but they always looks the same whichever side you look at a character from, hair, cutie mark etc.
And rarity is more bothered by the little details, winter wrap up, so focused on one little nest and ignored all others, and then there's the lack of attention to sever issues, "she looks awful", instead of "Is she all right." Also she has an obsession with appearance and beauty, or at least what she considers beautiful, sound familiar?

:iconrubiks1994:
rubiks1994 Featured By Owner May 8, 2016
I have to agree with you on that, does have a sort of fit with her character. But I just can't seem to see her as death the kid. It fits more with twilight for some reason
Reply
:iconsangenjin:
sangenjin Featured By Owner May 8, 2016
Ok...
twilight: seeking to be the best at magic because it is her element, and seeks to learn all there is.
Maka: Seeks to be the best Meister there is, to use her skill to their full, make a death scythe better than her dad.

Rarity: obsessive over insignificant details, easily defeated over small details like her hair or styles, desires to make everything beautiful, in her view, fusses a lot on friends attire/look.
Kid: Can be defeated by "ugly" asymmetrical things, gets distracted by a crooked picture... at home, mess his hair and he haemorrhages, if it is "beautiful" symmetry he's useless.

Now I appreciate and respect your view, and I continued this discussions for laughs :), also I see twilight and spike have a similar relationship to that of Maka and Soul, colleagues/partners rather that loving each other. I realise that spike and twilight love each other, but only in son/mother relationship.

Anyway, I doubt that the artist will change or redesign the piece because we talk about it, and neither of us are really right :). regardless this has been a pleasure talking with you.

Did you know Twilight Sparkle's horn is 1/8 of an inch off from the center of her forehead?

Did you know the asymmetry drives her insane? Like really, REALLY, insane?

Actually, it drives the Death Kid insane.  It only upsets Twilight when it involves cupcakes and wanting nopony to feel like they got more than the others.

The OCD is the only thing she shares with him though, and different flavors to boot.  Course, I'm a stickler for detail, and in my mind the unicorns would basically be the witches/sorcerers by default. ^_^;

I also wanted to use her hair stripes in a similar fashion to Death's, but it was a toss-up between using her for Maka or Death. Either way, Rarity was just going to end up filling the last spot because she didn't fit well anywhere else.

:iconmetal-kitty:
Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2015
Personally, I would have made her Maba, but admittedly she's not a main character so that's more of a 'flavor' thing.

O-Oh, now ya done goofed!  Metal-Kitty can't stand Twilight being portrayed as The Sniper ^_^ "Boom, perfectly symmetrical head-shot"
:iconomgwtftwilightplz: I'm worthless garbage who can't even write a straight looking T!
:icontwilight-rapefaceplz: Just look at it AJ, Pinkie Pie, just look at how the clouds are! Flowing right towards Celestia's sun! It's so beautiful, even the sky is symmetrical!"

I love this.  This is so awesome!  I hadn't even thought about how well the two casts of characters mirror each other.  I can't help but wonder who would be Crona though.  For some reason a de-aged kid Sombra literally JUST popped into my head after writing that but for the life of me I don't know why ^_^

Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Edited Apr 3, 2015
Eh... okay? For me, a small factor like that is a silly reason to pick a character.  A good match should be broad, evened out.  If you are laying cement on theground, you don't flatten out the part you intend to step on a lot, you flatten it all evenly, do you not?

:icontwiwrite-flare:
TwiWrite-Flare Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2015  Professional General Artist
That being said though, I feel that the match up is good enough.  We know more about the character of Death the Kid than we do of any of the witches.  The only real exception is Medusa and that match up makes no sense at all.  From what I can tell, based purely on the comment of your's that I see, you've based her character comparison on nothing more than her skills as a magic user.  I feel that personality is a more fitting guide than special abilities (sometimes even when a few of those special abilities are dead ringers for something the other character did once) especially in a world where all the main characters have access for spiritual abilities that defy physics.

Personally, I felt that Maka was the only other feasible choice for Twilight because of her anti social nature, obsessive studying, and passion for books (switching Rarity to Death the Kid I suppose because of their shared hang ups on aesthetics and style [not to mention their shared flares for showmanship and grace]).  Maka's far too melee oriented in combat though so she would only feel right for Twi outside of battle.

:iconmetal-kitty:
Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2015
Ah, but Twilight isn't just a magic user, is she? It's her big thing, second only to reading.  Not just some special ability; her passion.  Would you make Twilight Sparkle the pampered, book-reading snob and Applejack the wizard who lives in the woods and solves mysteris of the universe?

There is Mabaa, who is one of the most powerful witches, able to make barriers, teleport, and a bunch of other fun stuff.  Then there's Kim, who is admittedly restricted mostly to healing.  Like I said before, Eureka Frog might also work, if only because destructive magical numbers? I dunno.

Eh, I suppose people just don't typically share my logic.  I like to balance between skill and personality, and this will be harder as I am not as up-to-date as some on Soul Eater.

That said? Gonna be honest.  I just really don't care for Death the Kid.  Not sure why, always found him annoying.  More "Rarity" than Twilight.  Might just be my opinion though.

Nah, you make some really good points.  I admit, it's been well over a year since I watched the series myself (which is a roundabout way of not admitting that I didn't even think of half of the characters that you just mentioned T_T maybe this sort of thing just isn't my forte). 

Still, For the purposes of this particular crossover piece, I feel that it was best that Dstears stuck with the main cast.  Would you really want a crossover in which Twilight was rarely even seen?  I still say the the Maka/Death the Kid switch would be the most ideal for Rarity and Twilight if we were going to change something, but that's just me ^_^  Admittedly, whoever ended up playing as Death the Kid was going to be the od one out no matter who you chose given that his personality simply doesn't really fit any of them all that much.  Certainly not as perfectly as Rainbow Dash as Black Star and Fluttershy as Tsubaki, THAT is simply too perfect.

I also love Spike as Soul Eater as long as Rarity is playing Maka, but if we changed that I think AJ would be a good replacement for him for her wisdom and straight man routine (though Soul Eater's laziness could be a bit of an issue for the hard working mare).

Same time, I admit there's a logic to your argument that cannot be denied.  While Twilight would make more sense as a witch, we don't really know enough of any of them.  Seeing as 'Witch' and 'Sorcerer' are gender specific, we can't even make her Eibon.

Guess it depends on if you want her to be a main character or to fit her 'unicorn/alicorn' status.

Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2015
I dunno, while Twilight may suffer from OCD, I don't think her personality fits the kid.  He's only really got the asymmetry thing going on, and he's overly dramatic over it.  That said, I didn't watch all of it, so I might be a bit lost on who is who.

My first thought was Mabaa, just because Twilight's magic often seems to fit the 'dimensional' level of power.  My second was Kim, though admittedly only because of her role in the epilogue of the series.  Maybe Eureka Frog due to her ability to use the Magical Calculation spell? I dunno, just lobbing ideas around here.

that is a good point, but none of them turn out to be as overpowered as kid...

Kim would fit her, as an slightly awkward witch, afraid to show her powers.

Gotta remember, Mabaa was as powerful as a Shinigami at one time.  She's only not because she lost some of it with her eye.

I suppose Kim isn't a bad fit though.
