The Best Teacher We Could Hope For

Seriously, the CMC's could not do better. Anyone that gets potioned by her students, comes to on a mattress in the bottom of a pit while wearing bridal attire, and then still shows up for work the next day has some serious dedication to the teaching profession.

Another (comparatively) less-complex pony portrait, this time of oh-so-nice Cheerilee. It's certainly not the most dynamic image, but I hadn't drawn her yet and she proved to be a relaxing subject to sketch. Very good for my frazzled stress levels.

And while she definitely loved the 80's, I promise you that's just chalk dust. That stuff has to taste horrible. One more reason Earth Ponies are the hardest working ponies around.

Hahahaha!! XD It's that same equation that's on every chalkboard in Equestria! I never thought about the fact that it probably comes from some book. I love this!!

Very nice piece.  You take the time in, and prove you are good at, generating art that is very realistic. This covers textures, shadows, depth, and thousands of little details. But the thing I like the most is the imagination that goes into your work. You've caught Ms. C in the middle of her work; hooves covered in chalk dust, muzzle slowly getting caked in it, scribbling something on the blackboard, textbook cocked on the desk. Added up they make a very nice composition.

Love the detail with the chalk dusk, it does a lot for the image.

Looks like she's teaching some hardcore 1,2,3's there

When I see this, I'm surprised she doesn't call in sick every second day.
She should really hold the chalk with her hooves. :D

How did you made those old notebooks? They look VERY realistic.

"Ah, Ms. Cheerilee... you got something, uh, right here..."


I say this is a nice drawing, and if a Pegasus landed a job as I teacher, this would happen to them as well. But I got this to say; fingers rock! xD

You'd think that somepony out there would have already invented some type of chalk holder. Also, I can't imagine how hard it is to draw when the chalk is only a few centimeters from her eyes, a bit surprising she's not cross-eyed.
