MLP Sketchdumpage by Earthsong9405 MLP Sketchdumpage by Earthsong9405
I've been working on a lot of commissions lately, so I decided to take a quick sketch break before I get back to it.

Resulting in a rather messy sketchdump-esque thing of the Equestrian princesses! 8D I seriously don't draw them as often as I should, specifically Luna, Celestia, and Cadence. :C Aw well; just gotta make up for lost time, I suppose. :3

But yeah, this is basically me just playing around with my pencils, so you'll have to forgive some of the sketches lack of quality. D: I'm also very very sleepy, so if some of the stuff I say don't make much sense, that's probably why.

For the most part it was just me going with the flow and putting down whatever came to mind on paper, but they all have context to my headcanon.

Like, for one, the way I see alicorns, I see them as being equine, but they're definitely a different variety. They are unusually tall and slender, and they have the quality to them that is almost swan-like or deer like. Sometimes, an alicorn can even look a bit on the predatory side like Luna does, specifically in the way her body is shaped.

But this is only true for a naturally born alicorn, like the princess sisters. Twilight and Cadence are not true alicorns in the technical sense of the word, but at the same time, they still ARE alicorns. This is what I'm beginning to call an "Ascended" alicorn, or a pony that was once a different breed and then transformed into an alicorn by one or both of the sisters. This does not happen often at all.

So, about some of the sketches.

1. Quick headshots of Cadence and Twilight with a different manestyle. It's somewhat because I see their hair growing longer and them throwing it up so it won't get in the way, but its mostly because I wanted to draw them with ponytails. xD

2. Cadence and Shiny being lovey dovey with one another. Not much thought about this one.

3. A very quick "speedsketch" I did because I wanted something adorable. I have the headcannon that, not that long after wedding and honeymoon, Cadence and Shining Armor have their first foal. I've been calling the little fella Nova. c: So anyway, this one is of Twilight, Nova, and Spike, after a long day of goofing off and escaping the hardships that being a princess brings.

4. A miniature sketch thing showcasing the structure of a natural born alicorn versus an "Ascended" alicorn.

5. It's a headcanon of mine that, along with ruling the country and holding Courts, the princesses make it a point to connect with their subjects on a personal level. They truely do love their little ponies, despite the hardships and bumpiness they run into, so every now and then they cancel all of their Court meetings to either have an "open house" sort of thing at the palace, or they go to different places to interact with their subjects. This sketch is of them meeting an earth pony colt, who is downright in awe at the sight of these large ponies. (can you blame him? He's literally as big as their head.) In particular, he's staring at Luna because of her feral-like characteristics, like her eyes and ears and fangs. The night princess doesn't really know what to make of the tiny colt's gawking, but Celestia thinks it's utterly adorable.

The ones that aren't numbered are just some randomness. These include the closeups of the alicorn sisters' eyes, the teenaged Spike on the far bottom left corner, and the headshots of Luna, Celestia, and Nova. I think the little colt calling Twilight "Auntie Twi" would be the cutest thing ever. xD He'd also probably call the royal sisters "grammy". I know Cadence calls the sisters her aunts, but I think she would probably see them more as mother-figures than as aunts. o3o :shrug:

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut yeah. You took a look at my inner-musings. Do you see how messy they are? D:

Whatevah! As usual, feel free to ask any questions if you have any, and as always, thank you so much for taking the time to take a look. Now, it is off to bed for me! Even though... it's like... 11 am. Aw well. o3o

Not at all! Eyes are interesting to study, so I certainly can't blame the fascination. ^.^

Am I wrong in my theory that Luna is more on the seduction kind of side? That's basically what her eye(s) tell me honestly xD

I wouldn't say seduction 'cause I don't really see her, or her sister, being that interested in sex (and in Luna's case, she seems a bit too awkward to feel comfortable with attempting to seduce anyone). That said, she, like Rarity, just may have a "resting seduction face", in which they aren't actually trying to look seductive but sometimes their neutral expression may seem like such. o3o

Oh god, no. Of all the ships in the fandom, that's the one I dislike almost as much as I dislike Sparity. And I really, really don't like Sparity.

Not to say that there's anything wrong with the ship, and I can recognize its potential to be cute. I just... really don't like it.

As for the commission, I do accept them, but I'm currently unable to take it because the slots are full. Just a fair warning that I don't do commissions featuring canon characters. o3o

Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Probably. Even with a lot on their plates and important things to deal with, they do make the time to simply step back from it all and take a quick, momentary breather to help deal with all the stress. They aren't abandoning the war by taking a moment off and letting their trusted officials deal with it instead of themselves.

Your sloppy sketches are still far better than my best work. XD 

Also, the fact that I can instantly tell who is Luna and who is Celestia in 5 says a lot about how skilled you are. Fantastic!:clap:
