Onward -- Season Four

Here's one that I let slip through the cracks.  I originally sketched this out long ago then promptly forgot about it as the holidays and work took over.  Nothing terribly special about it, and certainly not a unique image, but there's some nice bits to it when you look at it up close.

Still, it gives us a chance to talk about Season Four so far...  How is it working for all of you?  Personally, I'm enjoying it quite a bit, although I don't know if there's any episode I've completely fallen in love with yet.  I'm really enjoying the extended subplots with the mysterious box and missing keys, the refurbishing of the old castle, as well as the upcoming Equestrian Games.  I'm also quite impressed by the wider world of this season, as stories routinely take the characters well beyond Ponyville.  In fact, they've done that so much that I'm actually missing the old stomping grounds...  Ponyville itself has been such a rare sight through the first half of the season that I'm going to feel a sense of nostalgia when they finally spend an entire episode there again.

And of course there have been a lot of great new designs and characters, with surely more to come.  I'm just getting around to posting art from the premiere... I have a lot of catching up to do.

So I've finally gotten caught up on the backlog of un-viewed art I've been sitting on. I've saved your stuff for last. There's a good reason for that too. I thought however that I would go back to the very last thing in the file and leave a comment here. Every piece you make, you bring something special to the table, that classic sense of adventure and determination hold true here. I think especially after the wild ride that was Season 4, this pic is more appropriate than ever. Onward is exactly right, and our loveable group of heroes journey on.

Everything from this point forward that you've made has been awesome, and it helps to keep the spirit alive. Thanks again for sharing your awesome work with us all. Here's to many more to come.

Do you plan on keeping the "anatomy" behind Pinkie's hair at least close to that?  I think it turned out almost perfect here.

Good to see the Mane 6 in action! >:3 They will kick some flank and everyone looks crazy to give their own input! Well, Spike is just holding onto Twilight's mane for dear life :XD:  Great job nonetheless :)
