Lift Off Practice by SilFoe Lift Off Practice by SilFoe
Relatively quick thing.

I wanted to do something kinda cute, so here's Celestia teaching itty bitty Cadance how to take off from a standstill.

Edit: I herp'd and I derp'd... and forgot a cutie mark

The little details. Oh, gods the little details.
You manage to make it seem so much more real without compromising the show proportions.
Fetlocks, muscle lines, bone protrusions, general shadings.
I am a stickler for little details. Do the maths.

I'm glad you like it! It's a fun challenge to find that nice place between show style and the uncanny valley.

No regalia. Adds a certain touch of....closeness I guess is the best word.

Cadence was a Pegasus before becoming a alicorn, but great work!

Copy/pasted from a reply below: "(Cadence's ascension is) covered in a short novel called "Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell"... I'd read it before I made this. It doesn't necessarily contradict this drawing as it doesn't say at what age Cadance ascended. She could have been young enough to still need flight lessons or at least help with certain techniques. She could also be behind most pegasi in this area as she was raised primarily by earth ponies before Celestia adopted her as her niece. "

Theory of a probably-not-canon book aside, I'm glad you like it.
