Hot chocolate and marshmallows

By
As I did last year I was on Dusty's Christmas Eve livestream link doing a livestream drawing to help raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank. link  There were several requests from the audience for me to draw Princess Celestia, and one request in particular for her to be drinking hot chocolate by the fire. That idea tickled my fancy and this was the result.

I had about an hour and twenty minutes to do the piece and I had back up and redo part of it, and in a perfect world with more time I'd do a few things differently but overall I'm happy with the outcome. Congratulations to whoever won this piece. I'll spray it with some fixatif and get it back to Dusty so he can ship it off to you.  I also want to thank everyone who donated last night to help make it a successful donation drive! Finally I want to say thanks to Ingrid Nilson, the voice actress for Maude Pie, for taking the time from her Holiday schedule to be on the broadcast!

FYI. I will probably be back on New Years Eve doing a similar type drawing donation if everything works out right. Happy Holidays!

Woohoo! This piece just made Draw Friends on Equestria Daily! And Ingrid Nilson retweeted the image twitter.com/yogiingrid/status/…

I just love the thought and sight of this picture. Celestia just looks so calm, and the scene seems really warm and peaceful. :)

I'm going to have to start a new folder for just your art.

You won't be the first to have done that.

Helps spread the word of your awesomeness.
Pretty. It would look even better with Luna or Twilight under her wing. :)

Realy nicely done, you are an inspiration to me. Perticularly for the background, it makes the drawing come to life.

I am glad that my work is such a inspiration to you and I hope it helps you make great work of your own.

Sometimes it's the simple things that are the most satisfying.

Happy Holidays!

Hm. Dark or milk? Regular or spicy (Mexican)? With or without marshmallows? Whipped cream?
Baron-Engel's avatar
While the title implies marshmallows I imagine her enjoying Mexican style with whipped and cinnamon dusted on top. She'd drink it with marshmallow if she was sharing it with a younger Twilight.

I've got some Mexican-style mix I need to try. (And a milk frother/heater I got myself as a self-present this year.)

There are options I forgot -- chocolate syrup drizzled on top, sprinkles (chocolate or otherwise), and maybe various mint flavorings.

I'll be satisfied with KISS -- just the hot chocolate, ma'am.
