Take my staff, Spike.
Oh man, this took freakin' FOREVER. 4 full days of nonstop painting, good god I hope never to spend that much time on a single piece again >.<
That being said, I think this turned out really nice, I love Twi's face (I might upload some detail shots later if people want it) and somehow managed to make purples and greens work without being too cartoony.
And if you're curious as to why Twilight's not a horse like in the other pic, its cause she transforms into a unicorn to ease travel time, and she's not above giving old Beefspike a ride every so often.
Been such a long time since Beefspike, I hope you guys enjoy it
