This is my third submission for the DA Artist Training Grounds’ week 8 theme: draw a seasonal pony. Apparently I have a fixation on winter holidays, since I did that for all three drawings.
Anyway, this is actually a request from someone on Deviant Art to draw Luna and Celestia together. I thought about doing some heartwarming cuddling, but there’s already so much of that. Granted, the two of them goofing off isn’t a new concept either, but this was the better idea, so I rolled with it. I also decided to throw more wintery gear on them because I thought it would look cute. I was going to put booties on them too, but something in the back of my mind really liked the bare hooves for some reason, so I stuck with that.
I cheated a little bit with Celestia’s colours, or more particularly, with her hair. Because the whole thing is made of gradients. Even the outlines. And that really bugs me.
I originally wanted to do some more ridiculous stuff with their snow attacks, but that would have involved zooming out and I wanted the focus to be on them.
It would be cute too if they had snowforts!
