"So, you want ME to try and use my magic bring out the stars tonight?" Twilight asked Luna puzzled as to why Luna arranged to meet her in the Canterlot mountains one night. "Yes Twilight Sparkle. Go ahead and try to bring them out. Just close your eyes, envision the stars in your head, and cast the spell. Put everything into it, and don't hold back" Luna says calmly. Twilight sits down next to Luna as she brings out the stars with flying colors. Huge bursts of magic shoot in many directions and the stars quickly appear one by one. Luna watches closely, her serious and analytic expression not changing until Twilight looks back over to her. "How was that?" Twilight asked hoping for approval. "You did very well Twilight Sparkle" Luna said with a slight smile. "I'd like to practice with you every night, to see you get better, maybe even better than me..." Twilight laughed and says "I'm still never going to be as good as you Luna" Luna just laughs with Twilight and thinks to herself "Not without a little practice..."
You are the moon, the stars are your audience and the sky is your stage, so dance your heart out and forget all the pain.
Every time I decide to draw a pony I wonder whether to use realism or not... ah what a silly thought but it happens every time, maybe someday I'll post a more realistic horse. Have you noticed that lately I've been featuring a lot of stars in my art? ah so pretty and bright like little fairy lights on the roof of your bedroom to gaze at every night.
Octavia in the snow. She's looking for ideas for writing music for Hearth's Warming Eve, and decides to listen to the sounds of winter for inspiration...
I've heard a few people say they like it when I work with snow and ice, so since it's that time of the year, I figured I might as well do something for best background pony ^^ I must say that I do like how this one turned out overall. I think I work a lot better in black and white-ish backgrounds than I do with color, but that's just me
