B.o.B / Taylor Swift - Both of Us (Fluttershy) 2.0 by AdrianImpalaMata B.o.B / Taylor Swift - Both of Us (Fluttershy) 2.0 by AdrianImpalaMata
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one, but both of us.
Someday, I will be strong enough to lift not one, but both of us...

Taylor Swift, Both of Us with B.o.B. from the album Strange Clouds (2012)

Both of Us 2.0: Fluttershy and Butterscotch

The original fan-made cover art of Both of Us has been redesigned.

Almost half a month before the release of Strange Clouds, there was a track titled Both of Us by Atlanta rapper B.o.B featuring Taylor Swift, which leaked. Today, I'm in LOVE with it. And with the decision to redesign the cover art for the song, I chose to pack it with more visual effects, an improvement over the old one. (It was simplistic.)

One thing that's major here is - well - all of it. But the one that I think stands out is the addition of Fluttershy's male counterpart, Butterscotch. He was created by *Trotsworth, known for creating what was known as the My Little Pony gender swap. Same colors. Different sizes. Different manestyles. Different gender. Here, I think of him as B.o.B, while Fluttershy, carrying over from the old cover art, is Taylor Swift. Both write their own songs. Uniting for a collaboration was one that was never seen; they were two different worlds. But once everything was fused together - Taylor's familiar usage of a country acoustic guitar and B.o.B's rapping together with Dr. Luke and Cirkut's production - everyone began to love it. And today, they still love it.

I packed it with some cool effects ("...too much?" asks Fluttershy) that I thought would make it feel more, I don't know, special? Captivating? Never mind 'bout that. Still, it brings out life to it, and has the accents of the album's title track's cover art. It's just toned down a bit (in regards to opacity/transparency). It's a great cover with all of these bundled up. Can't say anything more but enjoy this piece.

I don't mean to be a stick in the mud... but the license of the background is CC BY-NC-SA, which is a "viral" license (i.e. your derivative must be under the same license).
Really, I don't care if you use a different license (or none at all), but the background is based off of a storyboard under BY-NC-SA, so in order to avoid problems you might want to use it.

I'll be switching to the new license upon your recommendation.
