Inspired by this tweet by Meghan McCarthy (well, the first sentence):

“Do you want to join me for some tea?”
I was thinking that I really need more motivation and encouragement for my research, and then I got the idea for this drawing. After all, Princess Celestia is a great mentor. I intentionally didn’t draw her crown or other insignia to create a more private and informal atmosphere. Considering her behavior in A Bird In The Hoof, I think she’d like that, too.
This is Marigold Heavenly Nostrils from the webcomic Heavenly Nostrils by Dana Simpson, or rather my attempt at drawing her in said comic’s style. As you can easily see, it’s very different from the Friendship is Magic based style I usually use: split hooves, sleeker body, longer legs, a brush like tail, and a head that’s long rather than approximately spherical. I think experimenting with different styles is important for artistic development, and Heavenly Nostrils certainly deserves some attention (hint, hint!). To see certain characters from MLP:FiM drawn by Dana Simpson herself in her style, the “Nostrilverse” as she’s called it, click here and here.
I’m quite happy with this sketch, but I wish I’d get around to drawing more often. Anyway, I took some inspiration for the wings from here, and if you want to see a really cute pony comic, check out „You Are Cold?“!
“Is this… fun… as well?”
Inspired by a little poem that Tabitha St. Germain posted on Twitter, which is why Luna is in the picture. I have no idea why she’s swimming rather than flying, though.
