A completed collab print with my awesomesauce collab partner, :icondarkflame75:! I did the lineart while he did the coloring, and let me just tell you, I think it came out fantastic. ^.^ This was made for a poster-print for Bronycon, so if you're going, stop by to pick one of these badboys up! Also, thanks so much for coloring this, Dark! I absolutely love it!

If you guys haven't yet, you should really check out DarkFlame75Â 's work and gallery. Make sure you also give him his well deserved props for his work on this print! Check him out here:
:icondarkflame75:

So what the image here is something a little different from the usual Twilight and Spike pick. We wanted to do something a little different, so we went with the idea of Twi, now a decent flyer, beginning to teach Spike how to fly, now that he's gained his wings. In the image here, she's teaching him how to hover, and poor Spike's a little on the apprehensive side. Even still, he's not that scared; Twi has her wings outstretched in preparation to catch him if she needs to, and as an extra precaution (and to help settle Spike's nerves), she laid out some pillows for him just in case. c: It's a really cute idea. xD

But yeah. As always, feel free to ask me any questions if you have any. And don't forget; give Dark his props for the work he did on this. Other than that, thanks a bunch for stopping by!

It is one of the most specist things I've ever seen... "Can't have a dragon without wings!"

What's next? Scoots flies?
I mean, they are already taking away one of the most interesting aspects of one character, so why not another?

Oh my gosh. I just realized the purple area on her wings looks like arms reaching out.

Why do you do the tails like that? I mean, those orangey bird feathers on her tail... idk. I'm just curious. And why does she have that long part of her tail before it gets to the hair?

As I said before, it's the traditional look of the unicorn to have a long lion-like tail. The tail feathers are for steering in flight.
