As nice as Shining Armor has been portrayed in the show, he's always struck me as a little bit empty headed, so charging headfirst off a balcony to chase your baby that can fly when you can't seemed right up his alley. Fortunately Sunburst is there to keep things under control. Hopefully.

Yes, that's Twilight's cutie mark on a bookshelf behind them. Twilight gave Cadance and Shining Armor a bookshelf. Yes, it came with many books.

No zoom in on this one, because the composition didn't demand it.

A building? There hasn't been a building yet. This is an absurd late game addition. Madness. Who else could be in it?

We're more than halfway through the piece now. Isn't it exciting? It's time for me to say that with the piece I'm making a personal announcement, so stay tuned.

Next : Coming soon

Flurry!  Don't drive your daddy nuts!  (Or cause him to fall off a building!)

Nice picture.
But I think Shining Armor would just use his magic to catch her. He might be empty headed but I think an MLP unicorn would do just that. Sunburst would try that too, I think... =P

Excellent, as usual. I've really enjoyed #thebigproject pieces.
However, Twilight would be sad, volumes IV and V are out of order!

Shining, if you love them, you gotta set em free. You gotta let your daughter spread her wings and fly away!

Shining Armour is just worried, because Flurry Heart might crash into Pan coming the other way.

Probably a fear shared by every non-pegasus parent of a pegasus in Eqeuestria.

Though likely not shared by actual pegasi parents since Fluttershy was actually pushed off a cloud by a flight camp instructor. Which means they probably treat early flight much like many birds do.
