This has been in my inbox for weeks; figure I should comment now:
Discord is one of my favorites, and you've captured the "darker" sense of it perfectly here. The balloons, the Ponies, even the dancing buffaloes--they all look REALLY friggin' creepy and that's a good thing. :3 I also like how the whole thing kinda looks like an ancient 1700s engraving rather than just a picture. ;3

This reminds me of the song 'Discord' by OdysseyEurobeat on YouTube. It especially reminds me of the first lines of the song: 'I'm not a fan of puppeteers, but I have nagging fear someone else is pulling at the string. Something terrible is going down, through the entire town, bringing anarchy and all it brings.'
Here's the link to the song [link] in case you wanted to listen.
Anyways, you did an FANTASTIC job on this! It's not overdone like a lot of MLP fanart of Discord, but it's simple and lovely!
Wow, this is brilliant! I've seen several pictures of a more nasty-looking Discord, but I have never seen one that does such a good job of making him look like a true chaos spirit, ahaha. The way you set up this piece--with all the things he chaos-ified arranged around the edges (and looking downright menacing in their simple silhouette form!) to poor Twilight, all while Discord looms overhead--great, great job.
There's so much that I like about this. Other than the style itself, I really like that you added so many of the things Discord messed up into one picture. Another touch that I really like is that weather die in the lower-right corner. It's a magnificent bit of shorthand for alluding to the unreliability and frequent changing of the weather. This is definitely going in my favorites; great job!
