Read me Another... by JaDeDJynX Read me Another... by JaDeDJynX
"Alright, but just one more. You need to get to bed before your parents gets upset."

" They won't get mad at you..."

"Oh? And why not?"

"Because you're a princess..."

I had this idea at work yesterday and the minute I was off my shift I took some paper from the office, a pen and sketched this out. I came home and started to work on it in photoshop.

It's young Princess Cadence and Twilight Sparkle back when Cadence was still Twilight's foalsitter.

Considering how much Twilight loooooves to read, you'd think that Cadence would spend a good while reading to her :)

I'm still not happy with the lighting effect, but...eh....it'll do. The lighting took me forever to get right...>_<

I get so tied up in your comic that I forget you do draw other things and that it's pretty wonderful stuff. I really do like the illumination effect.

Well I'm honored you feel honored I'm thinking it'll be a few days most likely. The Story will be about Twilight and Cadence (obviously) the young foal sitter will spend the night at Twilight's while the filly's family is away. This is beginning to remain me of a few weeks ago when I found this image [link] and used it for the base of this fic [link] I thought I'd include these links to show you what I might do with the story. I thank you.

All of my d'awwww.
Filly Twilight and young Cadance being a sweet foalsitter is just too much for a single heart to handle. Fortunately, Twilight has augmented mine, so I'm good.
I very much like the detail you've put into everything here. The first thing that leaps out on me is the lantern light—and you did it very well indeed, especially considering how difficult it is to get it right. If you're still not happy with it, I guess you could try tuning down its brightness on the lantern itself and the areas immediately near it lantern while keeping the rest the way it is. The way light and shadows interact in the picture is really nice, good work 'ere.
I also love the way you did the folds of the blanket and the way you made the bottom blanket appear so soft. Just lovely.
And them expressions. Cadance's smile and Twily's eager curiosity are too adorable. It's a good thing. Like the way you did their hair, as well. Also, the detail on the book they're reading, with the individual pages being visible, with the way it's lit and and with Cadance's nicely-rendered magic flipping the page.
Great job, great job indeed!

Lol I wanted it to look like she had her front side lying down and her back side up. Like she's anticipating another story. Though...I see where you are coming from. Now I can't un see it :D. Perhaps Tank is in there
