Twilight Sparkle Portrait Sketch by AncientOwl
Twilight Sparkle Portrait Sketch
I finally draw something new after 4 months, and it's a heavily edited version of someone else's drawing of Twilight. Oh well.

I came across a portrait QueenBloodySky did of Twilight and I felt like I had to draw it. Nothing was going to stop me from doing that. Grabbed some paper and a pencil and cranked this out in 30 minutes.

I started a commission thread on Reddit a few days ago, and seeing as it got way more hits than I thought it would, my album is going to see a huge upsurge in content over the coming month. If anyone else would like a commission, leave your request in the comments. I'm doing them for free.
