This is super neat, and I'd love to hear about where you grabbed all these bits and pieces from. That is, I'm assuming that each of the elements on the ship are compiled from real-life photos of various objects. If I'm wrong, I'd love to hear how this was actually done! Also. it's a cool call-back to the original Bradburry story that the ship is apple-shaped. Really neat stuff!

Thank you for submitting!

"The forbidden fruit."

But seriously, this is very well crafted. There is a great balance here. Nothing fully stands out, and that is a good thing. I'm an artist as well (still training, but understands the basics) so I have a general understanding of how a piece should be composed. This piece is a good example, and one I will use in the future.

Thanks for the gold and the reviews! This is indeed a photo collage, assembled in Photoshop. I tried to use only objects that weren’t meant as pure decoration (even the apple is probably a paperweight.) I referenced an old bronze diving helmet, knife handles, fireplace pokers, a nozzle, an interesting four-pronged industrial claw, and a fire hydrant wrench. The picture of the sun is from NASA.

I copied the title from Wikipedia. I know the Author explicitly tried to keep Discord away from the ship, but I reasoned that it was going to rescue a pretty princess, anyway. It certainly won some gold for me. Excelsior!

>>GroaningGreyAgony I *so* much want to use this picture when I eventually publish the story on Fimfiction. (and now I have permission, so YEA!)
