Seven Years of Friendship, Magic, and Ponies

Featured as the header for Equestria Daily's Nightly Discussion #1240!
Also featured as the header for Equestria Daily's Drawfriend #2424!
Also featured in Equestria Daily's Best of Celestia (2018) Drawfriend, entry #50!

EDIT: Forgot Trixie's shading layer. It's always something isn't it?

Hey! Some of you might recognize this as based on the five year anniversary sketch I never finished. I gave it a facelift and added some relevant characters and here we go! Only two years (and two weeks) late! I did most of this relatively on time, but then got a pretty bad flu that took a while to clear up so that's why I'm uploading it just now.

As for the years is a long time. I could write a long retrospective about the fandom, I could make a summary of my time with it or my plans for the future but ultimately it don't think it really matters. I'm incredibly grateful for everything the fandom gave me and I hope I'll be able to continue offering something back, in my own little way. Thank you, fans, for all the fun moments, wonderful art and juicy memes. Thank you, followers, for your continued support and the feedback that helps me grow. And last but not least thank you, my close friends, for keeping me company and making sure I keep drawing against my lazy instincts. =P Needless to say, I'll definitely be sticking around. I got many more ponies left in me, and the road of improvement doesn't have an end in sight, even if it's just pastel equines!

Awesome! I just love how that cake has every one of the Mane Six, Spike, the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Derpy, Starlight, Trixie and Sunset on it whilst Celestia and Luna are adoring it!

Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss, ohmygosh, I love this on so many levels!!! You really show your love for art & passion within this single piece right here. It shows your adorable art style which I've always loved & all the different expressions and interactions that put a big smile on your face. I love the concept of this soooooo much. You have Luna & Celestia celebrating, as also presenting the cake in a way that is so genuine. You have all the ponies which put a smile on your face and their interactions are adorable. The details too are just marvelous. The cake definitely looks delicious & the shading is so well done!! I also love the depth in the background with the blur & the colors with the focus on the ponies. AHHHHHH, 7 YEARS IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING OF AMAZEMENT & SHOWS THE LOVE WITHIN HERE. WILL ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO SEE ART FROM YOUUUU!! YOU'RE definitely one of my favorites for delivering cuteness & art crafted with loveeee! This piece is certainly a favorite <333

So many cute ponies- they really do make for great cake decorations :^)
You have a really nice style for this kind of piece, everything looks fantastic! I love how the colors all fit together and don't look out of place, despite how many various different colored ponies there are, so great job on that. Such a great piece for the seventh anniversary of MLP~
