Featured in Equestria Daily's Songbird Serenade, Coloratura, and Sapphire Shores compilation, Entry #34! 

Well, this took forever. This picture caused me so much grief and it took so long to be done because of it killing all my motivation! I really should've uploaded it as a sketch as I originally intended after the episode aired in order to make a joke about how the two characters are similar.

Instead I struggled for ages to do lineart (because I'm so anal about it) and even did a second, unique set of lineart for Sonata that I ended up not using because it was TOO detailed. I then thought that since I was so late with the image, I might as well make it a good one, and after wasting quite some time shading it, I accidentally merged some shading layers at low opacity, killing any contrast as well as my mood to keep working on it. I eventually got nagged enough to finish it that I went back, fixed the shading and slapped some random background and effects on top to hide the issue and called it done. I think the outcome looks good enough, but all the time that went into it wasn't worth it and it killed the drive to draw anything else in the meantime. I hope you enjoy it in any case!

Don't forget to check out the other version of this!

She looks magnificent, but what are those things she's wearing on her wrists?

Thanks! That's a good question, they're a bit ambiguous, but it just looks like they're some sort of colourful bracelets combined with the spiked ones.…
