For the upcoming fanfic Daring Did: Tales of an Adventurer's Companion by Seriff-Pilcrow. It's used for the theme by The L-Train, which is quite awesome!
Check out the audiobook teaser for the story here, it's definitely worth a listen!

So this is what I was working on during the two weeks between ATG and CAPs. Definitely took a lot of effort, especially on the background, but I'm mostly happy with it! I feel like Twilight Velvet could use some adjustments, but ah well, haha.
I was really excited when I got the message asking if I might be interested in making this, so thanks for giving me a shot at it Seriff and L-Train, I hope you guys like it :D

Hey there! I just want to drop by and say thanks for the art. Both my co-author and the L-Train say it's fantastic! :)

I'll let you if any other Daring Did things that'll come up, if that's fine with you. The next thing I plan to release is another audiobook teaser, but someone else is already in charge of the art for that, so there's no need for you to worry!

I have missed the old theories that Twilight Velvet was the author of Daring Do.

That's actually one of the things I'm trying to "revive" in Daring Did.

In the fanfic series, Twilight Velvet is the co-author of the Daring Do series along with A. K. Yearling. Velvet requested to be uncredited to make sure Daring's enemies couldn't trace the books toward her family.

Oh my gosh, the background is so good (you colored the trees and foliage so well!) Of course the ponies are great too, especially that hoodie you always rock at detailing ^^
Overall great piece for a title card--in two weeks no less!? And it's awesome you worked with these people.

Thank you, I appreciate the feedback!
Backgrounds sure aren't the easiest, but I'm making progress at getting better with them :)
Yeah, I was certainly excited about it, haha.
