Courting the Sun by Bri-sta Courting the Sun by Bri-sta
I always liked the idea of courtship flights. An elegant dance between the winged species to show ones strength in body and affection. Twilight being a terra pony, wanted to do just that. She magic'ed herself a pair of wings and invited her beloved Princess into the morning skies.

A cluster**** of a sketch, but one I plan on coloring later. This was a request done by my friend Danielle and I just loved the idea. My plan is to have them raising the sun together. Plus Twi's wings will be nearly transparent. not some gaudy fashion accessory like Rarity's had been.

An intimate dance in the sky is a great way to show their mutual affection. I'm sure that with Twilight's delicate new wings she can't do very fancy moves like her teacher, but I imagine she'd be quite graceful just the same. It all comes from the heart, right? :) It's also lovely how close their faces are, each no doubt half-fearing a sudden affectionate kiss — and half fearing that there won't be one. ;)

It's hard to see on the dA background, but against a (transparency) checkerboard I can see a lot of little details that I think will turn out beautifully. I'm very happy that you're planning to do more with this piece.

Dancing in the sky of the jung morning? When stars still present and the moon the sun kissed. When beloved colors of the clouds and sky brings the twilight of the day, two souls find together, carried by the breath of fresh air. Knowing that it does not last forever, they enjoy the moment when day and night to rule simultaneously. Beautiful are the eyes of the two, silent thoughts. Enjoy every touch to be led around by the sounds of the wind in a dance. Two souls, united in the morning light, the rising sun, enveloped in the warm sunshine.
