Double Date 6 by stileelits Double Date 6 by stileelits
Have to admit, right now I feel like how Big Macintosh looks...this pic took twice as long as anything else I've done. I'm happy with it, but I'm afraid I made the ponies too small to really see a lot of the detail that I put in...eh...

See, I was going for a sort of Calvin and Hobbes vibe. Before anyone accuses me of plagiarism, yeah those trees are taken from a C&H book cover that I liked. Bill Watterson used to put his characters very small against a large snowy landscape, and I think it worked better for him than it did for me...at least I got to use his trees, and his comics were a big help in figuring out how to draw snow. So this whole thing is kind of an homage.

Fun fact: Braeburn was originally going to be imitating Hobbes throwing a snowball, but I couldn't make the pose work for him. Went through three different poses for him before I found one that worked...and now he's like five pixels tall so you can hardly see it. Eh.

Caramel is making Big Macintosh do all the work, while he just messes around with leaves and bits of coal, and doesn't notice how hard Big Macintosh is working.

I was originally planning to have Soarin dropping some snowballs, like he was actually having a snowball fight with Braeburn, but then I figured it would be way funnier if Braeburn just pegged him in the face out of nowhere :D
