Hello pones!

This picture started out like I was going to draw it the toony way, and then I didn't. Also, the background mountains have two tones, and everything else has one. So yeah it might look a little weird, I might go back and DX it at a later time...

Anyhoo, three things about Tempest:

• Tempest is wifey. Please be OK and happy, woobie scar pony.
• No cutie mark has ever been shown for her. This design for one just abruptly flew into my head (based on the fireworks she performs as her first Good Deed). I feel like I've seen it somewhere before, but I was unable to find anything. Let me know if you figure it out! I feel like I subconsciously stole somebody's cool fantasy RPG graphic or something...
• There's no strong implication that Tempest's scarred eye has compromised sight at all, but I like to draw that one as different from the other and interpret her as not being able to see well out of it. I'll experiment with various ways to depict this in future artwork of Tempest. Don't Google cataracts, they're creepy.


Also I rewrote the lyrics to Open Up Your Eyes because I love to underscore character development through reprises where the meaning of the song is totally changed.

As with that Digimon thing I did earlier, I haven't written down the meter and probably nobody can figure out where each of the syllables go but here it is anyway.

" It's time to raise your banner
It's time to right what is wrong
To realize what you already knew
You needn't be cruel to be strong

You lashed out in anger
You didn't know what else to do
You don't need to be a monster
To be your strongest you

Open up your eyes
Be the stars this stormy night
Once you shunned the fallen
Now stand for them and fight
Open up your eyes
And let your scars herald your might
Don't lose your heart and don't lose sight
No more lies
Open up your eyes

Your heart has long been clothed in desiccated pain
Hidden from the sun and moon and never touched by rain
But now there comes a calling, a sudden crack within the stone
A light within your darkness, that should have always shone

Familiar rain stings harshly, and though it chills you to the bone
Your eyes are blazing brighter, than when you fought for you and you alone

Open up your eyes
Show you still have tears to cry
You have heard the tempest
But now you see the sky
Open up your eyes
And let the shadows fall behind
You may be broken, and half-blind
You will rise
Open up your eyes

Open up your eyes
