Yes, your tales were quite charming, Princess Twilight.
Perchance you shall find ours just as much a delight?

====================
Sharing stories is probably the best way to make friends, it's probably the most personal way to come together and honor your friend.
When you can communicate so amiably, there is pure honesty that comes from true friendship.

Finally, I got a piece out, bleh it's been too long. I haven't really been happy with myself giving all the excuses. Oh well, I just need to keep drawing : P
It was kind of nice to do some real lighting again. I'm definitely very rusty, and I don't think I got the balance right.
Also, it was quite amusing to really experience all the focus it takes to complete such an ambitious piece, I really do miss being a workaholic.

Pretty alicorn princess Twilight Sparkle from that toy company
Other zebra characters, I don't know

Absolutely beautiful take on the Zebra's! It still sucks we never got the chance to see them in the show but we are going to see them in the comics! :D

What a waste of opportunity. They really should have done a zebra episode.

It was worth the wait, though. It looks amazing!

The lighting on this is wonderful. Even if you think your painting is rusty, you've still clearly got a real solid grip on how to light your pieces because this is beautiful. And the characters and their outfits are all very well done too! Great to see some new paintings from you, you always do a fantastic job on them (:

There's so much that makes you just stop and admire every little detail.  Twilight especially looks so soft and huggable!

The whole time I was not happy with how Twi looked until a last minute edit of her lighting, glad you like her ^w^

Aww it's just beautiful! I think I've fainted. Heart 
The atmosphere is perfect with these zebras, so discreet in the series, fortunately that the arts like this one makes it possible to discover their worlds :3
Twi is surely very interested in their knowledge and what an honor for them to receive a princess !
The guards are absolutely sublime in this outfit, very nice details on their uniforms, very harmonious. I do not think they will have a bad surprise, they are also well armed ^^' Nice work! Clap 
Their chef is also very beautiful with these respectable clothing which defines its function. And with the ambiance, in this "house" with this light mixed perfectly with the shadows, it also offers a warm and mystical mix.

Very impressive so, you can be proud of it Nova , just wow ! Clap Love

Ahhh, you're too flattering >w<
Yes it was quite fun designing those outfits, discussing my ideas with you was certainly helpful ^^ Shame I didn't have enough time to get really ambitious with their accessories, but of course I have to put something out in time.
Thanks my friend, I always appreciate the support to help motivate me to continue drawing <33

But it's the truth ;3
Yes it was great to discuss this with you, an ambitious project beautifully represented ^^
Hmmm on the contrary the arrangement and the imagination, colors etc ... and really good, I find them very beautiful like that, buuut it is normal for an artist to never really be 100% satisfied hi hi xD ^^
Hey I am the little helper who supports, but it is you who must be thanked :3 Thank you for sharing your talent!

I wish we'd seen this in the show!

oooohh yes. I was looking for zebra references throughout the show, and it was surely lacking XD
