I made two sketches at this year’s GalaCon, both of them inspired by Tabitha St. Germain. XD “The Night Doth Not Go To the Dentitht!” is a quote from the secret surprise (something that Tabitha wrote!) during the VA panel on day two. I did the sketch above during the rest of the panel, asked her to sign it during the autograph session later that day, and she actually wrote the whole caption. :D Sadly I missed the Thiessens’ panel waiting in the autograph line, so I’ll have to wait for the recording of that one.
The sketch below is from day one, inspired by the opening ceremony. Apparently nobody had told Tabitha that she’d need to switch her microphone on to address the audience, and she promptly started complaining in Granny Smith voice. ^^’
Anyway, GalaCon was amazing, and the best part was finally getting to meet certain
people ponies in person. Yay! :D
Well, at least almost. ^^’ I have a few more things to do for work tomorrow morning, but then my Galacon vacation starts. :D
And here’s what happens when that time budget runs out. :D
I did this quick sketch on the train home from work. No idea why after months of drawing hardly anything I’ve suddenly done two sketches in a day… ^^’
I’ve wanted to do a second version of Playing Piano. I did this one this morning at the station. My train was delayed, so I had about 20 minutes. I didn’t look at the previous version while drawing. Over all, I like the previous one better (especially the legs), but the position relative to the piano is better now, I think. :?
I love the scene in Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? where Twilight sends her books against the Tantabus. :D That’s about all there is to this sketch. ^^’
“See? Told you I had a surprise for you today!” — “Awww, that’s so sweet!”
You may have seen the photo of Pluto that NASA released with the New Horizons flyby today. The heart shaped feature attracted lots of attention, and it fits well with a certain princess’ cutie mark, as Silver Scroll pointed out. :D
Luna uses the Summer Sun Celebration to raid Celestia’s strategic ice cream reserves, stored deep below Canterlot Castle. Her poor guard pony seems more concerned about getting caught between quarreling princesses than ice cream, though. ^^’
