Candlelight Snuggle by Novaintellus Candlelight Snuggle by Novaintellus
Why do you hold me so close to you?
Your heartbeat is so reassuring to feel.
But your eyes, what else do they see?
I see the passionate fire beating in yours.

The fire burns fiercely, but what a tranquil night.

Do you think the candles will burn out soon?
Let them, we don't need the light anymore.
But isn't it time to rest, are you not tired?
Hush now, just hold me a little tighter.

The fire never dies, a new fire for every night.
====================
And so, their ship sailed into a night of nuzzling and cuddling before they arrive in dreamland with the pony of their dreams. Will they actually get some rest, or will they stay awake for some nightly shenanigans? The night is young.
I'm sorry for the blurb, but one can dream. Ooo - Pierre...

Gosh this took forever for me to finish. I really have no one to blame but myself, though ATG did delay it by another month :I
I honestly surprised myself in how I handled all the painting for this piece, I think I'm getting the bed scene down. It's quite simple scene, but the mix of color was really quite a challenge--my laptop kept sounding like it was going to break itself. Not to mention all that hair; if I had a quarter for every handful of hair I draw, I'd be rich.

Fun Fact:
Your standard issue pony hugs have been proven to be a genuine health benefit. Consult your doctor about taking prescription pony snuggles and about possible side effects that include relapse heart failure, diabetes-inducing cuteness, and somnambulism that could result in pony hug overdose.
Fun Fact: My only regret for this piece is that I could have drawn socks on them.

Aww! This is sooooo cute!
I have a feeling this is something similar to what you wanted to do with the homecoming picture? X3
I love this a lot actually. The expressions, the pose, the snuggles, it's all fantastic!
The lighting is especially brilliant with the two vastly different light sources. Great job! I love it!

I actually roughed this well before ATG. My other ideas for your homecoming were similar though, I did have a few extra roughs lying from another piece that is yet to come out. They were also cuddly in a nice bedroom; I confess one involved ear nibbling in a very intimate manner.
I've definitely had a lot of experience with moonlight and candlelight (the best kind of light), I really would like to look into artificial, morning, or afternoon light.
Thanks so much for the delicious love! <3

I have to ask something. I'll send you a note about it.
In other words, yeah, this picture is adorable! I love it a lot!
Well the lighting is really good, but I would love to see you experiment more!
Awesome work! I love mushy pictures like this!

This is an incredible sweet piece you've made. I love the texture you gave them. I show the softness that their coat may have. Ponies are loving and caring animals.

Awesome work

Their coats are really fun to texture in my opinion, I probably colored way too many iterations of their coats.
Ponies would make the best blanket. I fear I would squeeze them too hard though--I just can't help it with all the love these ponies got! So delicious!

They are tough animals. I would hug them tight too. So do a lot of fans. So imagine cuddling one.

That's equines's natural beauty mixed with adorableness give us. And they are affectionate animals too.

Looks awesome! The detail, lighting, background, and everything are so well done :o
I love the way you did the hair too, looks super nice.
Paintings are hard, but it seems you got the technique for it down pretty solid. 
Definitely a great piece, keep it up!

It sure is an endurance test getting the hair. Although I could have the technique, I think just keeping the lighting consistent is the hardest.
I'm pretty happy how it turned out though. Thanks for the love!

Hopefully cuteness isn't dangerous. Otherwise you'd be a serial killer.
