I love how you've managed to set such a serene tone with so few colors.

Minimal color pallets are something I really enjoy.

Aurora is upset that everypony keeps pressing A through her glorious nights. I hope that jealousy doesn't transform her into a wicked mare of darkness, or anything!

Oh don't worry about her. She may be a grump but she's responsible. She's got to look out for her little sister, not be jealous of her.

The "Night time!" in the description text made me think of this:

Heh. Also, nice scene. Although I can't possibly *not* interpret those circles on the moon as a face. I think *not* doing that is entirely impossible for any sane person... or insane person for that matter. :O_o:

YES! Night time...Day time!!

And actually every time I draw Aurora's cutie mark I see it as a little face. So yeah. It's not just you.

Sometimes, it feels like I'm the only one who ever plays a game for the story. Just about all of my friends skip right over the cutscenes. It can make playing co-op frustrating.

Anyway, beautifully done, as usual.

That is really annoying. My sister's fiance is like that. And in his hurry to skip the cut scene and get back to playing he often ends up skipping over key information for the next mission which leaves me sitting there running around in circles not knowing what I'm supposed to do next! *sigh* So frustrating.

I like the simple yet fitting shading. Now, Egophiliac doesn't do much of that :)

PS. Does Aurora ever sleep then? ;>

Whoa nelly you're comparing me to Ego!? I'm flattered. Thank you!

And Aurora does sleep. Just not very much. It's probably a big contributing factor to her crankiness.

Is there a tumblr for this or something cuz I think I'm missing out on some things. Oh! and by the way I loved your older works like not alone, and that one commission you did with the snowball fight. Reeeeaaally want to see that kind of stuff come back... please?

No there is no tumblr. I'm participating in the Newbie Artist's Training Ground event over on Equestria Daily. Each there is a new theme and you must draw ponies in accordance with said theme. I gave myself the added challenge of trying to give my pieces continuity, sort try and tell a story. If you look at all my entries in order it kind of makes sense. And the other stuff will be coming back. There's only a few more days left of the NATG so I'll have time to work other things then.

More peaceful scenes. I love the wings in these poses, as well as the lighting from the moon and the lake.
Very beautiful scene!

It's actually really nice to get to do quiet scenes like this. Very refreshing.
