Afternoon Flight by RaynesGem Afternoon Flight by RaynesGem
Print of this illustration is available in my online store: raynesgemstudio.storenvy.com

May be the most unoriginal title in the world, but screw it! I like it. :P

Been wanting to a piece with all of the Mane 6 for awhile, especially after the season three finale. And long shorty short, became up with all of them (especially alicorn!Twilight) enjoying the afternoon above Ponyville (so to speak). Of course, I wanted a piece as a print for my first artist alley table. Needlessly to say, out of all the illustrations I did for Nashicon, this one I am most proud of and enjoyed working on.

Featured on: Equestria Daily's Drawfriend #778

Materials Used: Bristol Board, Holbein Black Ink, Blue colerase pencil, Abode Photoshop CS5

Mane Six and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (c) Hasbro Inc.

Can't go wrong with the art style from the comics.

It hadn't occurred to me that we're down to two non-flying ponies now. :)

Really nice picture. I like the varying depths of the characters.

Really nice! Pretty colors and lovely composition and background. Poor Rarity and Aj are so small.

It's funny and appropriate how Pinkie is floating herself with balloons.

Don't worry about the title. With a picture this good you can call it whatever you like and it would STILL be awesome.

Great work! The canted shot is a nice touch and your use of perspective looks great. That sky is beautiful; I love the cell-shading style you used throughout this piece. It looks great on the ponies. I hope Season 4 has a scene like this!

Look how high we can fly, look how high we can fly,
We can see everything, from up here in the sky.
We have the perfect view,
Together me and you,
Look how high we can fly.

(You are epic if you know the song.)

This is amazing! SO BEAUTIFUL! Even tho I was happy that Twilight became an alicorn, this makes me realize that these are still her friends. Wings don't make her a different pony. She's still amazing and her friends still love her. <3 Great job!

Thank you. And I had that message in mind while thinking and drawing this piece. :)

The artwork is beautiful, but the image is impossible to enjoy with such an important character missing. It really kills whatever good mood I'm in, seeing the mane six having fun or going on an adventure without Twilight's oldest, closest, and most loyal friend, as if his difference in age and species somehow makes him ineligible to join his only close friends in any bonding experience.

I knew there was someone I had forgotten to add. *smacks forehead* And no, this wasn't because I don't like Spike. I like Spike just fine. It was a combination of me not thinking about it at the time and the fact that I was running under a deadline to get the piece finished. It was an honest mistake on my part.

That's too bad. It would've been a pretty nice picture with Twilight's closest friend in it. Speaking for myself, every time I see a pic that features the mane six without him, it make the ponies a little harder to care about.
