This time the topic was "Draw a pony crushing on another pony / Draw a pony with a secret admirer". At first I though about continuing the Flash Sentry thing from that comic a few weeks ago, but the idea I had in mind would've required four ponies and I didn't want to draw that many again, so I settled with this thing. It's of course a reference to that famous Archie comic book cover, although I've got to say I'm not that big of an Archie fan.

It is funny how Uncommon Bond showed how Sunburst has good chemistry with so many characters, LOL

Yeah, I suppose he's the kind of a "nice guy" type who easily gets along with most ponies at first.

Sugar. Yes, please. Won't you come and put it down on me? I'm right here, 'cause I need, little love, a little sympathy. Yeah, you show me good loving. Make it alright, need a little sweetness in my life. Your sugar. Yes, please. Won't you come and put it down on me?

I was about to say something like "that song really was everywhere a couple of years ago", then I looked it up and saw it came out in 2014. Time flies...

Oh I just knew this was an Archie reference when I saw the thumbnail

I guess it's one of the most well-known things about the comic.

Probably. I read a lot of Archie digest comics in the 90s. It was how my mom taught me to read

Very nicely done, they look so cute together.

You know, I thought this was a reference to the Babs Seed song. (Which explains why my brain keeps trying to replace them with the crusaders.)

The "sharing a drink with friends/loved ones" thing is a pretty well-used trope I think :)

I have to say, your linework has always been good for the recent drawings, but this one features extra-superb lines! :) I am happy for your progress. Also, Starlight is a happy mare.

XeviousGreenII's avatar

Thanks! This was easily the smallest of these drawings so far and only the upper halves of each pony visible, so I didn't have to rush this one so much.

The care poured into the piece shows, I say. :)

Archie reference for the win!

XeviousGreenII's avatar

Alright, thanks I guess!

Oh cute. I didn't realised it was Trixie at the right until I saw the tagging.

Which on the side note, I think you forgot tagging Starlight.

I thought this would've benefitted from some colours, but didn't have the time for that - maybe on the makeup day. I did tag "starlightglimmer", and didn't think "starlight" was needed in addition to that.
