Back in the sky

Well here it is. The first thing since 2015 that I've put ... almost as much effort into as "Clinging to the Past". I remember why I stopped doing that. I haven't done anything else (except work) for three days.

I've definitely forgotten how to pony. We'll work on that though. Maybe. If there's still a market for this sort of thing.

Speaking of which, Ponycon (NYC? It's in New Jersey now) is coming up soon. Next week, in fact. I'll be there. Again. Even though they announced that the con was over forever last year. It seems that wasn't enough for some people. I'll have prints. Maybe you want some. Maybe it's just an excuse for me to go hang out with Celebi-Yoshi for a few days. Speaking of whom, she colored something of mine and it's pretty epic. You may get to see it soon.

In the meantime, let me know what you think. I feed on comments. They give me FUCCCUS.

Edit: New version with speed trail for Twi and ditched the over-saturating color correction. Original version can be found here, along with the sketch and WIPs.

There will still be a market for pony at least until the movie is released later this year.
Your pony art is so beautiful!

I'm glad to see you posted something new.  Since discovering your work at last summer's BronyCon.  It's so rewarding to see someone showing Princess Celestia some much needed love!  And adding Twilight is just the icing on the cupcake!  And no matter what happens, ponies will always be with you.  You just sometimes need to take a moment and reconnect and remember what they mean to you.  You'll get the joy of rediscovering them over and over again.  And you'll never forget they are a part of you, just as they are a part of all of us!

You can never forget how to pony. It's in your bones. Written in your DNA. It will NEVER GO AWAY. EVEERRRRRR

Anyhooves, have fun at Ponycon!

If it makes you feel any better I think you've only gotten better at this since the absence. At the end of the day it's nice to see your work regardless of what direction you take it in.

With that said; love seeing Celestia and Twi rendered like this; your color saturation and style of blending is always a treat.

Y'know there was a time when you couldn't go two pages on dA without tripping over an awesome artist drawing ponies. I like to think I have fairly high standards, and I'm watching nearly 400 people.

It's died down a bit in recent years, but those that are still around remain a source of inspiration for me.

Maybe it's Twilight teaching Celestia how to fly in unusual ways?

So that is why Princess Celestia wanted Twilight Sparkle to get her wings. She just wanted another flying partner. :D Excellent work NadnerbD. :clap: They seem to be really engaged in conversation. I wonder what they are talking about? Magic? Royal etiquette? The lastest episode of Equestria Talks

Very impressive, Twilight, see you later I guess
