This is my submission for the NATG 2012 Day 5 theme: draw a pony coming home.
Almost overextended on this one. Had a bit of trouble coming up with a composition until later last night, so I lost out on some possible drawing time (although I still put 5.5 hours into this).
This one was fairly involved: lots of weird angles with mid-motion shots for everyone, since they were all walking, plus something resembling a really simplified background since I was kind of tired of drawing ponies in a vaccuum (although I knew I’d be short on time so… cotton swab vegetation FTW!). Definitely need a break before I do something like this one again.
