Wow, two days back and already have some art! How time flies!

So for this particular piece I decided to try using a tablet to save on time in some places, rather then the pen tool. It took some practice, but after a while I think the wings came out at least respectable. Likewise, I'm using backgrounds now, because backgrounds are cool.

About the piece itself: This weeks theme happens to be Ponies in an uncomfortable situation. There was a myriad of different ideas pinging around in my noggin', but I went with Twilight The Alicorn here because after sketching for a while with the tablet I found the piece kind of taking shape.

Twilight as a character is eager to serve her mentor, but as far as development goes, she still has many awkward social graces, and insecurities. Imagine being suddenly thrust into a position where you not only have to deal with an entire nation of ponies on the very top of the hierarchical scale, but having to deal with near god like reverence? Every decision she'd make would have massive consequences that sometimes can't even be comprehended. Does that sound like a position someone with Twilight's personality, which often has difficulty simply deciding on the amount of frosting should go on a cupcake, would be able to handle?

Well, whether or not, you've got the wings now Twilight...

I do not own Twilight Sparkle or any My Little Pony respective rights. This is purely a fan piece to be used non-commercially.

"...But I'm not prepared! I have nothing, not a reference guide, or some simple notes! How am I supposed to be the pony they need me to be...when I don't even know?"

I do actually think what is being hinted in the MLP series is that something like this might happen, because Twilight is being taught all forms of magic other unicorns would not normally, shes got a crown, and the only ponies I've seen with crowns in the series are the princesses and other royalty (Celestia, Luna, Cadance, Chrysalis, Sombra). Plus, a pang of suspision hit me on S3 Ep1 near the beginning where Celestia quoted: "She will succeed at her task and when she does we'll know she is that much closer to being ready."

Ready for what exactly?

Becoming a Alicorn Princess? Hmm?

Well, thats my opinion.
