What a Twist of events!

Too... many... candy canes.

Never made her before, so this was fun to figure out a theme. Although candy canes of course somewhat obvious considering her cutie mark and all that, but then setting the scene around that. I guess floaty candy works. Perhaps if you eat too much of it and get that sugar high you'll end up seeing stuff like this?!

Her hair, tho... Red and curly?! I left out the highlights, still works and probably works better than fudged shine on her hair. This deep red complicates highlights a bit, if kepts matt especially. The main way would be to make it reflective, where light simply glances it from a low angle. But, eh, I had candy canes to make.

Curly hair is typically dry, so the lack of highlights actually makes sense, in a way.

SO.... No one is gonna think that Apple Bloom left her and ended their friendship because Twist got her cutie mark before her?

I like the approach you took to her mane because it doesn't detract the attention away from the rest of the piece.

Twist looks amazing as she does her sweet happy dance in the candy dimension. Amazing work on her excited smile and how her joy can be felt throughout her entire body as she clings to her candycane, almost if she's trying to use it like a hula hoop or something. I can't blame her for being a bit out of it from the sheer delight… though perhaps complication due to high blood-sugar levels too. ;) In any case, thanks for sharing her in such a fantastic, maybe downright delicious moment.

Tsk tsk. Poor Twist. They haven’t given her as big a role since her voice actor moved out of Vancouver.
