Excuse me miss twilight I'm in the school for gifted unicorns and I saw some of the older teachers using chalk and drawing weird symbols and circles and then using magic making them light up can you tell me why and how thank you princess!

Oh, that’s because they’re highlighting the things they’re talking about, so you really should be paying attention to that! It can be rather helpful in following a mathematical or chemical formula, for example. A trivial spell, but very useful.

Also, if you think the symbols are weird you clearly need to do more studying. You’re supposed to know what those symbols mean, otherwise you won’t be able to follow the lectures. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, too. It’s better you ask your teacher than write to me. Not that I mind, I just want you to have the best education.

Another speedpainting for my Road Trip picture book project! This time it’s of good ol’ Twilight and Rarity. I think I’m getting a hang of the coloring style for the project now; this one only took me about 2 hours to complete. C:

Anyway, for the image: the gang’s all stopped during their trip for a lunch break at a road-stop Diner that’s popular with celebrities. Given Twilight’s fast metabolism she eats likes a lion, and Rainbow took a quick snap of her mid-chew because her expression was just too good to pass up. Rarity was caught by surprise but, as per the fashionista, she almost always turns out lookin’ like she’s ready for the picture. She claims it’s a gift. xD

Got a snippet for the image? Let me know! c:

Other than that, I hope you guys enjoy the image! ^.^

The first speedpainted photo for the Road Trip picture book I’m making for Bronycon this year! This one was more or less a test image before I fully went into the project to see how the style would work, and I think it’s a success. :3 As far as what’s going on:

This the group’s first hotel they stay at, and it’s been a bit of a long road. While Rarity, AJ, Shy, and the CMC are pretty alert, these four ended up crashing in a pile the moment they collapsed on the couch. Twi seems to make a great pillow! Fluttershy found the scene adorable and took a picture of it. C:

Also if you’re wondering about the couch; I’d imagine they have special couches where it can be modified to better work with wings comfortably. This couch has an opening in the back for winged sitters to allow their wings to slip through, which is what Twi did here and what Dash did with her other wing.

This was so much fun to work on; the next few will be outdoors, as well as the “beginning image”, or the picture of the very start of the Mane 6’s trip. Speaking of, I might look for a few folks to maybe write short little stories to go with each image. If you’re interested let me know! ^.^

Until then I hope you guys enjoy the image!
