Road Trip: Early Morning Breakfast


Allllllright, so here’s the next installment to the Road Trip project I’m doing for Bronycon! I think I made Shy’s head just a tiny bit too big but it doesn’t really matter, I like how the picture as a whole came out. :3

So in this photo, the gang have all awaken early in their hotel in the lovely city of Neigh York in order to get ready for the road again. While most of them is still in the hotel room, Applejack, Fluttershy, and Rainbow Dash go ahead and head downstairs for some breakfast, but Shy and RD aren’t really morning ponies. The moment they sit down RD leans into Shy and Shy sleepily latches onto RD before dozing off, RD scowling about the early morning sun and having to wait for their breakfast. AJ found the scene endearing and snapped a pic; RD isn’t appreciative of the flash AJ forgot to turn off. xD

I really want to try and show the closeness the gang (Mane 6, Spike, and the CMC) have with one another in this project so while some of the photos are typical vacation pics, there’s a lot of them that’ll have a bit of a theme with character interaction. None of the images are shippy, but you’re free to interpret it like that if you’d like! ^.^

This painting was shown first on my Patreon and it also has a walkthrough of my process there. If you’re interested in gaining early access to my art or exclusive content like walkthroughs and wips of my work, please consider supporting me on Patreon! :3

Thank you all so much for the support and for taking a look at my work. I hope you like the image, and be ready for the next installment soon!

 'Course not, except for the rings on Twi and Rarity

Yes I added rings to that image, but that doesn't mean the image itself is meant to be shippy. I added the rings because it was a cute little shoutout to my personal love for RariTwi, but whether or not they're actually together in that specific picture is up to the viewer.

How in the world it's it up to the viewer if they're literally married in the picture?
Earthsong9405's avatar
They aren't. Having rings doesn't automatically mean marriage. Ya wanna see it that way? Go for it, I'm not stopping you; RariTwi's great. But if not, then don't see it that way: the rings can just as easily be friendship rings; I wouldn't put it past any of the Mane 6 to own rings with the cutie marks of each of their friends.

I always did like these type of stories and I don't know why. Something about all the characters going on an adventure like this makes me want to see this happen in the show.

Alright, the movie sorta counts I guess.

Oh yeah btw, I assume you'll print these out like actual polaroids for Bronycon? (not that I'll be there to see them, but that is a really cool idea)
Earthsong9405's avatar
Only one will be printed like polaroid pictures and pasted into a hand-made book, which is a special version of it. The rest will be printed like regular books in order to be much cheaper for everyone who wants one.
Siansaar's avatar
Ah, makes sense.

I can buy Rainbow Dash, but Fluttershy, the girl with a chicken coop? I believe she rises as soon as the cock crows.
Of course that might not matter for this AU.
And the picture is great either way. Really catches that certain "hotel" feeling.
