At long last, some brand-new artwork being uploaded for a change, and this time for a very special cause! This picture was made as a birthday gift for my friend the lovely *RenaTurnip
, a talented pony pixel-artist (she made the charming avatar I am currently using, in fact) and a genuinely kind person on top of that. She has something of a soft spot for Lyra, a pony who I have been meaning to draw for ages now anyway, and also for the fanfiction "Background Pony" which I wanted to give a nod to (despite having not read the story myself, and also my desire to draw a nice cheerful Lyra), so I hope she will enjoy this even if it is a couple of days late at this point.
So yes, Happy Birthday my dear!
Thank you for always being a lovely supportive friend, and I sincerely hope that you had an absolutely magical day!
