Oh, What Fun! by The-Wizard-of-Art Oh, What Fun! by The-Wizard-of-Art
Much like last year, I planned on not bothering with a Christmas picture this time. Then I had to go and listen to "It's a Pony Kind of Christmas". After hearing this song (www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYOH0L…) I just had to illustrate it. I briefly considered doing Pinkie Pie's "Twelve Days of Christmas", but then I remembered that I need sleep to function properly. And in case you're wondering, yes, I did pretty much throw perspective at the wall to see what stuck.

As always this is for all of you wonderful people (over 2,000 by now) who seem to like my scribblings and splashings well enough to keep watching.
Merry Christmas!

Watercolor on Strathmore 140 lb. watercolor paper. Started: 11/12/15. Finished:12/18/15.

The actual lyrics are way more clever:

Thought I'd grab some friends
And take them for a ride
Not so sure what's up
As ponies run and hide
Put Rarity in the back
Right next to Pinkie Pie
Better buckle up, my friends'
Cause we're about to fly!

Oh, jingle bells (Hey!), jingle bells (Hey!)
Jingle all the way (Hey! Hey!)
Oh, what fun it is to fly
In a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells (Hey!), jingle bells (Hey!)
Jingle all the way (Hey! Hey!)
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!

Go grab Applejack
Who's hiding in the barn
Put her in the back
And leave behind the farm
Sky is clear and blue
And the wind is at our tails
Ponies, hold on tight because
We're about to tip the scales!

[...]

We start speeding up
As colors start to show
Streaming through our manes
The higher up we go
Even faster still
Faces fearing doom
What fun it is to fly and sing
As we sonic rainboom!
