Attention accidental comment readers!

I must share an impression with you, an impression I always have when considering Twilight.
If you're still in high school, please pay attention to lessons you find less important. Care for Your common knowledge.
Go learn a short history of some small distant country. Check what species is that tree you pass by every day. Take some time to find out how to predict weather in Your area.
Value history - it may seem not much important right now, but sooner or later You will find that history tells us more about present than expected.
Finally, physics and math - they are all really nice and rewarding if You only get interested just ONCE and try to figure out something for yourself.

I'm nearly finishing the studies at my University now and I do have perspectives to have a quite challenging work, but - believe me or not - the time I had when I COULD learn about almost everything I wanted in high school (and earlier) is truly priceless and treasured to me now.

Please don't get caught in the trap of "you can find everything on Wikipedia" (although you can, but that's not the point!) and "you won't ever need that in life".
Truth is, everything is important and the older You will get, the more responsibilities you will have. The time to learn as much as You can is now - never ever in Your life will you have such a great opportunity to understand the world around than You have now.

Thank You for reading, if You made it this far ;)

My brother had this picture, and I liked it, and it took me forever to find it. :(

But now that I have found it, I love it. It's really well done, and it features the first or second best pony! Awesome work, I like 'dis. :D

Twilight looks bored, I guess even she would be after reading so long. I know she would certainly hold out longer than I would. Great work.

Hi! Um… I'm a brony musician and well I'm working on a huge project right now and the only thing I need is a cover, I think your work fits my song perfectly cause the song is about Twilight being homesick at night, it's actually a 9 minute long song, but I prefer to divide it into two parts, an instrumental one and a vocal one, but well… I'll stop being boring and ask you instead. Would you please let me use this image for the cover? Please? Thank you for your time…

Hello there ^^ I am flattered that you want to use my picture and ordinarily I would say go ahead, but since this picture was commissioned, I cannot give others permission to use it :( I'm sorry about that. Perhaps you can take it up with :iconnielsolofbouvin: , as he was the one who commissioned me and he may give you permission to use it.

Your project sounds very interesting, and I would love to hear it when it is done :3

Lovely. The thick, oversize books help make her appear (and probably feel) diminutive.

I have some questions about the moth. Is it meant to be symbolic? Is Twilight beginning to feel that her studies are consuming so much of herself that she's afraid that she's going to burn out, or is she beginning to reach a level of magical proficiency where the study and research itself is becoming dangerous?

Celebi-Yoshi Featured By Owner May 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! :)

Nice job reading into the picture :D The moth is supposed to be drawn to the flame, where it will die. Twilight happens to glance up from her reading and see the moth--but she knows that there is nothing she can do to stop it. (Since I made this picture for someone using their description, I am not sure of the greater thing that this scene with Twilight and the moth represents.)

First of all I really like the drawing style, good work!
Second, I was making almost the EXACT SAME DRAWING. The only difference is that you were first in finishing it. Props to you.

I think I might be a bit like Twilight Sparkle since I'm not the best at making friends and I love learning about things. ^^; She ends up learning how to make friends in the end though, just like how I'm learning. :)

I really like Fluttershy too! <3

Also, I'm wonder if the great Celestia is only a Princess, what makes a Queen? :O

:iconcelebi-yoshi:
Celebi-Yoshi Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I feel the same way :) I think I identify most with Twilight Sparkle of any of the mane six.

Celestia was originally a queen when Lauren Faust pitched the show, I believe, but Hasbro wanted her to be a princess instead. I just think of Celestia as a queen with the title "princess" because of that xD

Heh, I've seen 22 episodes of this show already because I got nothing else better to do. ^^; I wouldn't say it's the best show ever, but it's not so bad. :)

I honestly got nothing better to do besides watching this and replaying Okami to get all the Karmic Transformers and stuff...

Do you have anything in mind you think I could get into? :)

Celebi-Yoshi Featured By Owner May 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hehe xD I understand what you mean. I mostly got hooked on MLP: FIM for the art and animation, which I think is really cute. ^-^

I have never played Okami, but I would like to try it. Maybe after I finally finish Skyward Sword. :3

Anything you could get into? Oh my.... well, I don't know what kinds of things you like xD Hmm. If I were to recommend quality shows to someone, I would recommend Adventure Time, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Steins;Gate, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood... I know I've loved more shows/animes, but I can't think of them right now... xD
