New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 1 & 2: The Crystalling
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

And so it begins again, making MLP episode art! (So, spoilers ahoi) Every Saturday Stream when I can, from start to finish in a single session. Something I started doing since season 4, and I guess haven't stopped since then. Keeps me active quite a bit hah, and with an interesting challenge of figuring out how to make a scene that's based on something directly which is made in a completely different style :XD:

At first I thought I'd make just Sunburst, then I chose a scene... then more stuff happened. Then the hours went up working on this piece... although in the end, not too bad. For some reason some stuff just... happened. Where I said I was thinking about doing something and my pen just already bothered to make it before I could finish thinking about whether to make it or not!
If only that'd happen all the time :P

Anyhow. The episodes were pretty great, what an entry for the season hah. I guess that was to be expected. Fresh character highlights, Spike being pretty awesome, Applejack, some canon/headcanons getting shattered, some Applejack, some comedic moments, but that baby, though haha. Wow.
Overal, a good enjoyable experience. Does feel fast... but that's maybe more because I was "suddenly" thrown into episode art earlier than expected. I kinda wanted to be able to not miss some because of conventions... but alas, those will have to become midweek streams. D:

I like the way you captured the event. I'd think Cadence would like it as an art piece if she was real. But Little Flurry Heart. I know it was for the cuteness factor, but that look to me just screams I'm going to blast you for nerfing me when that spell wears off you have no idea the torment I can unleash, or am I just feeding into how insane her alicorn baby magic is for the level of power she holds at such a young age.

Definitely better than live CGI ponies, cause you can still see the immense artwork put into one scene, this is amazing.

Hasbro made small eyes to baby ponies before...
But why does she has such big eye?
