This thing here was supposed to be less work than my last comic, but proved a worthy competitor! Making this had its ups and downs, including a computer crash which obliterated all the first 6 panels at one point, which had to be re-drawn from scratch. Yes, almost everything here is hoof-drawn, including all the backgrounds. Of course the reference for those came out mostly of S01E11 "Winter Wrap-Up", making me notice all over again how simplistic the S01 backgrounds are when compared to newer seasons. Didn't make the re-drawing any easier, for I'm still a beginner at backgrounds
For the ponies' winter gear I let myself be inspired mostly by "Best Gift Ever". As I said before countless times, I prefer my ponies unclothed, but some of this winter stuff actually does look pretty cute
This comic was born out of basically two separate ideas. For once, I wanted to do something with Winter Wrap-Up for a while now. Second, I wanted to do something with Starlight and Trixie, whom I have grown to adore quite a bit! So the thought was, why not combine both? Story here is pretty easy and straightforward, centering around another one of those little slices of pony life. I hope you'll enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed drawing!
These people supplied me with some awesome vectors as reference and guidance:
And those were responsible for all those Cutie Marks you see (as well as the Weather Team patch):
Some of the ponies have been released as a standalone pic in my Portraits gallery as well!
