Everything Is Going To Be Fine by Mattatatta Everything Is Going To Be Fine by Mattatatta
At long last, I have something to share with you all.

Yes, my top secret project has been creating artwork for HeyLasFas' upcoming album, Destiny: A Tale of Unicorn Wings!
This is the promotional poster, drawn entirely in scratch by myself with HeyLasFas providing the vision.

I am also making the album's cover, so when it releases, be sure to drop by here to view it, and then head over to bandcamp and grab yourself a 2-disc album of awesomeness!

Full resolution provided in download, enjoy!

Destiny: A Tale of Unicorn Wings is an MLP concept album created by HeyLasFas. It was released on Bandcamp for digital download and physical album pre-order in February. The physical album is coming soon, with the official artwork (created by myself) almost nearing completion.

The album's storyline takes place shortly after Twilight becomes an Alicorn, and follows an alternate timeline where Princess Celestia takes Twilight back to Canterlot to teach the new princess her duties and eventually pass complete control of Equestria over to Twilight. This does not go over all too smoothly, with the abrupt change in lifestyle and sudden workload being very overwhelming for Twilight - who really just wants to ease into her new life with her friends by her side. However, things slowly but surely take a turn for the worse, and listeners are lead through a story about Twilight discovering what destiny truly means.

The album features music of varying genres ranging from alt. rock, orchestral, and electronic; and the runtime clocks in close to a whopping two whole hours.

The only thing I really care about is Twily's friends not being left behind or ignored. Though the majority of Season 4's finale gave the rest of the mane six nothing to do, and later turned them into hostages to advance the plot, the very ending of the special gave me assurances that they're going to be all in this together from now on. It's nice seeing the whole group contribute, because ultimately that is how Twilight got to where she is now - through working with her friends and pooling their strengths to face daunting obstacles.

I really like Twilicorn...Twilight, in my opinion, deserves this. Celestia said it herself. Shes come a long way, but that doesnt mean her friends are nothing. I was disapointed by season 4, though. I noticed the songs were poorly writen and the new characters were...well...cheesy(LOL. Cheese Sandwich). I hope season 5 is better, and from what i`ve seen, it will be, as long as flash sentry doesnt show up and make this like equestria girls. I hated that movie, and its so stereotipical considering that all the girls wear skirts and all the boys wear pants. You wouldnt catch rainbow dash in a skirt. I am just saying, i have good expectations for season five.



P.S. PLZ continue on survivor shy. The plot is getting verry gripping, and i want more of this story! Its very well writen. I write myself, but i only do short stories. Never something cool like a long, multi chaptered story, not at least, without a lot of contributers. I think you are an awesome writer, keep up the good work!

Such a positive and constructive individual, hmm? Not only have you said that here, but you posted the exact same comment on Depribooru - word for word. Looks like, if anything, you're just looking for something to whine about yourself. Since I'm a nice individual, though, I shan't delete or block your remarks, but rather let them exist until something insightful falls out.

I shall reiterate though, that this album is more of an alternate path, and the story has been in the works long before Twilicorn was confirmed. I can't really change your mind on the matter, but I'll provide the facts I can safely give without spoiling the album.

Not blocking others for not saying 100% positive things isn't being nice, its being professional

ok what's it about.  Because it feels like yet another "sad feels" album

I'll be upfront but I cannot lob spoilers out. It could be considered a "sad feels" album at certain points, but the story behind it isn't grimdark. It's a pretty light story from a technical standpoint, but the central conflict does wreak a lot stress on the characters involved.

It is an album though, so the musical styling is important to note. The tracks blend in orchestral with progressive rock, and also make use of ambient styles to emphasise imagery. If the genres are not your thing then I hope you're either willing to give the album a listen after release just to try it, or because something else interests you. If not, well I can't berate someone for having their tastes, can I?

Very well. At least you stuck about for a few more comments, but I had a feeling your mind had already been made up.

You are incorrect in your assumption though, but unfortunately I cannot elaborate beyond what I have already said without stepping into spoiler territory, and LasFas probably cannot furnish enough "pre-Princess-Twilight-official-confirmation" documents pertaining to Destiny to convince you this album is much, much more than a "whine-fest".

I personally have no issues with Princess Twi - barring an air of caution around what the writers are planning with the major change. Like any plot point in a story, it has the potential to work out fantastically or fall horribly flat.

As for LasFas I know for a fact that he was excited to hear Princess Twilight was confirmed. When I met him at a convention last year - after Season 3 wrapped up - he was still giddy about it.

You shouldn't tell everything in the promotional materials for the product you're releasing, this was designed to invoke interest. But don't worry, it more than likely is probably going to be a whole whine feast. There's nothing good or anything whatsoever that can possibly come from this, I'm pretty sure.

You're absolutely correct, don't worry. I'm glad that I don't have to deal with pretentious writers like him anymore...

The whole point of promotional materials IS to tell you everything you need to know about the product, like the tone, who's in it, the basic of the story ect

Otherwise you'll might get something the implies light hearted story turn out to be a rape fic

Oh yeah. I know where you're coming from. The last time I saw my girlfriend, Twilight, I had the worst feeling, like an itch that something was going to happen. She just smiled a cavalier, I'm -the-hero-and-I'm-about-to-do-something-stupid smile, and said to me "I'll always be here for you. I'll always be your guiding light." and like an idiot, I trusted her. the next morning I got a phone call from the hospital, informing me she was dead.

See a response I made a few comments down. The basic explanation is that it is a stylistic choice of mine. The comment further below goes into greater detail.

I hope it isn't considered a bad thing, I'm hoping it can be an interesting aesthetic.

Nicely done! At first glance, I thought (hoped even!) for it to be a cover for an awesome story. :D An album cover is of course fine too, but I can't seem to enjoy music as much as I enjoy a good story (so sue me :P).

As your public defender, I advise you give this album a shot. I've listened to some of the early material and got my share of sneak peaks, and I can say it's like a rock opera - the whole album tells a story, and an interesting one at that.

On another note, there is an official album cover coming soon, and after that I'll be resuming fic-writing and illustrating - which I bet is just what you're looking for!

Wait... Music can have words in it? :iconpinkiepienoesplz:

Kidding, of course, but for some reason I assumed the album would be instrumental. Of course, nothing in your comment implies this one has words in its songs, but--again--it's one of the things I assumed when you told it tells a story...

Why does music have to be so complicated? :iconnowyoufuckedupplz:

I sure do look forward to it. Even though I have less and less free time recently. D:

The wonderful thing about music and modern technology is that you can enjoy it while performing other tasks!

There are vocal tracks, one of which was uploaded by LasFas as an early demo some months ago. Lemme err... here! Most of the album is a mix of Orchestral and Prog Rock, with some of my favourite parts being all orchestral due to the imagery it creates.

What I'm saying is that the quality of this album is immense, and sometimes I feel my artistic efforts are not worthy.

I gave the song a shot and Dear Princess Celestia, just today I learned that I can't seem to enjoy progressive/hard rock. :(
I dunno why, though. Maybe I'm simply musically challenged? :D Or perhaps I enjoy a different taste of music? Truly a mystery. :)

I'm kinda curious about the orchestra part you mentioned. Wonder how that would sound...

Well the digital release will be on bandcamp, so you could browse the tracks then.

Can't argue with tastes, though. If I ever drew something you just didn't like I wouldn't hold it against you
