Such a long long way by rollingrabbit Such a long long way by rollingrabbit
I’ve been waiting for this episode to air forever, ahh.

Okay, I first saw this episode a few months back, just after it had been completed. I had just moved to Vancouver to start working after I’d finished school, was just starting a brand new chapter in my life, and my mother had just left after settling me into my new place, and then when I saw this scene I had to struggle to not weep like a fool in the middle of all of the show’s artists because it made me think of my momma.

And then I saw it today and thought of my mom again, and then did this drawing, because if you listen to the lyrics of the song it’s just so mom.

"it's just so mom."
As a feeler, I thank you. It's so hard for me to put words to my feelings, and that sentence just about does it. That song struck so many paternal heartstrings it's not even funny, and I don't even have a child! Even thinking about it makes me all sappy inside. Looking at pictures makes it worse... but it's a good hurt.

Twilight's face looks weird, but I really like it otherwise.

Celestia really does have that whole "motherly" thing going on, doesn't she?
And yeah, this is pretty much the only time I was ever brought to tears by a cartoon. This scene is just so insanely beautiful.

Nice drawing! I really like it! I thought that episode was touching and surprising. I didn't know that Twilight Sparkle can be a princess that way.

Beautiful scene. We can clearly see how much Celestia care for Twilight as more than an mentor, but close to a mother. She wants and watch her grow and she is proud of her.

But the way is not over. New challenges awaits for Twilight.

Beautiful and touching work

I definitely got a maternal feel from the song as well.
Brought me to tears! And I'm not even a huge MLP fan.

This picture is wonderful though. Fantastic job.

Oh man, I can see why you'd tear up. This scene was really touching, and I definitely think you captured their mother-daughter relationship with those expressions and that wing over Twilight Sparkle. :heart: I hope your career (and life in general) is going well!

I don't hate it, but I don't like it---I'm just in the feels because of the reasons she linked herself to this 8C
