Flight Lesson by ThePleonasticPotato Flight Lesson by ThePleonasticPotato
Psh, who needs sleep? This was a satisfying project to paint, I felt like going for a DAWW moment this time around. I wouldn't be surprised if Celestia levitated filly Twilight around from time to time, letting her "fly" to her hearts content.

Actual time to paint: 5:36:20
As always, I've recorded myself painting this, here's the youtube link: [link]

Celestia:" One day Twilight, you wont need magic to fly, and you'll know the true joy of flying with you're own pair of wings. Hu, one day."

Awwwww. :) Yes, I can very much see Celestia doing that; and one look at Twily's expression of sheer bliss is enough to make it worth all the effort and all the time her advisors no doubt were telling her she should spend on important royal business instead. :)

I'll try re-uploading the file and changing the display size, if that doesn't work, you may want to check the faq.

This is the benefit of computer fanart. That is, if you're good at it.

Adorably beautiful!

And who knows; if she becomes an alicorn, she could have wings of her own? Not like Rarity...

You know, I hope she does. It would be pretty ballsy of the writers to do that though.

Yeah, you (hopefully) saw what happens when you give Rarity wings.
