Alternate Title: Someone really needs a tablet.

It all started with a simple search, born of curiosity, that led to a self discovery of a new interest. A tale, that starts with an almost fairy tale story of envy, banishment, a battle between good and evil from ancient times, an origin tale. The tale ends, and we see our hero, the ever adorkable bookworm Twilight Sparkle [and I love the word adorkable, cause geeky + cute = win].
I wasn't forced into the fandom, I came willingly. It started, I think, with
linking me to a Pony video on Youtube [Pony Craft 2], and sometime latter, I was shown the Ponies: The Anthology. It was after while I got curious, and sought out the show on my own. After the first two episodes, I was in love with it all. The characters were deep, the background vivid and full of life, the stories rich with morals, and the animation was smooth as silk. All memories of the horrors that I was expecting, from expectations built upon older generations of MLP, faded [the older gens are still terrible].
I didn't jump in without taking someone with me, of course, something good is something to be shared, so, I convinced
to watch it, and alias! Another brony was born. Tenyo went on to share the love with others, so, I kinda felt like I had something to do with it ^^
While most would tend to latch onto a particular background pony, I decided instead, to, well, portray the beginning of the entire series. A 'brony's' first steps into letting go of what they knew of judgmental opinions, and witnessed something that could make them laugh and enjoy themselves.
Submitting this to Equestria Daily's 'December Draw Off', and will definitely be making more, hopefully of better quality each and every time, maybe more with more impact and meaning, cause, above all things, I really need a tablet. So *Hooves crossed*.
The above is....12? 14 hours of work? I don't remember when I started. Every little detail
was hand drawn via mouse
in Gimp, minus the checkerboard pattern on the building in the background, that was a filter. :3
For my usual visitors, lemme know how I did! For new visitors, also let me know how I did, I'm kinda curious, been playing around with, well, my favorite smudgy brush, and I paint in Gimp in a style that would make Bob Ross proud. And, holy mother of Celestia backgrounds!
MLP:FiM and Twilight Sparkle are (C) Hasbro and
NINJAEDIT: Also, the fanbase is the coolest I have ever encountered. None of us are as nice as all of us!
Also, I used to hate, but then I took a pony to the everywhere. [Had to be said]
