After yet another "fail-proof" cutie-mark acquisition program went awry, Scootaloo, being the ever impatient one, started getting desperate. The other two aren't too happy.
Ah don't CARE how happy he looks, we ain't gettin' our cutie marks in that! Now go git Sweetie out from under the table.
You'd figure they'd invented parental controls and HTTP blocking by now.
First ever piece done with a drawing tablet. It certainly makes a difference. A nice break from the hassle of the NATG too - it's liberating doing stuff by your own deadlines.
Done in Photoshop CS4 from a pencil-and-paper outline. Inspired by the Stalkerloo tumblr. Credits to
for pointers along the way.
EDIT: Took it to peer review with my local brony group and made some changes, as per their suggestions. Brought Scoots' wings higher and closer to the body, reduced the blush, added sweat and lip bite for Scoots, changed Applebloom's eyes so she's looking more toward the screen.
Still available in its glorious mobile-browser-crashing original size via the download link. Preview's scaled down though.
EDIT: Modified the manes of both fillies to be more realistic. The edges were too abrupt.
