After weeks of regrettably being tied up with work and real life responsibilities, I have returned with some new fanart to share once again, huzzah! This piece was made as a gift of sorts for my dearest darling friend, the exceptionally talented (Ponydora) Prancypants
, as the cover art for his latest work of fabulous fanfiction How Far Away You Roam
. The story is a chaptered sequel to his acclaimed oneshot The Fruits of Their Labors
which was written as a birthday gift for me, so when he told me he wanted to write a sequel I offered to create the cover, since I'm always glad for an excuse to draw more of my favorite ponies anyway and it's been ages since I've done anything with a proper background (foreground, in this case?), simple as this one is. I probably went at least a little overboard on it, but it was tremendous fun, and especially the opportunity to design their cozy winter clothes.
On that note I have several concept sketches which were made in preparation for this artwork (or mostly just for kicks, if I'm being honest), which have been uploaded to my Scraps and can be found below for anyone interested.
