A Quick Bath by Neko-me A Quick Bath by Neko-me
Commission for :iconmoppypuppy:

Twily had persevered through her accelerated training routine, her magic was now up to par with Celestia's standards and things were starting to calm down, but after all of that hardship Twily still didn't know why all of this was happening.

Twilight was able to go back to school with the other fillies, but all was not well.
After a particularly terrible day with her peers at school, Twily was ostracized by her classmates jealous of Twily's advanced magic, labeled as a show-off and a teachers pet for being the sole pony privileged to spend all her time with Celestia. One even having the gall to claim that Twily had it easier with the Princess. This would make Twilight very apprehensive about flaunting her magic in the future.

Twi came to Celestia a mess from all the things some of her classmates threw at her. This made Twi late for a training session the Princess and she was given a harsh and rapid bath to make up for lost time. It was at that point Twily decided she had enough and used her new found intellect to question the Princess as to why this was only happening to her.

Surprisingly, Celestia didn't get angry over Twilight's aggressive tone. She just smiled, Celestia still couldn't simply spell out what Twilight was expected to do, but Twily would soon get an answer.


Thanx for the favs and comments!

>INB4 this gets critiqued :ohnoes:

I must say, I just got done looking over some of your other works, at least two of which were saddening and borderline-depressive works between these two, so seeing something adorable is quite the turn-around medication :XD:

Celestia being the patient but playful-when-appropriate second-mother figure for Twilight is an old fandom theme now, but it's always going to be a golden one. I think this is a perfect scene that depicts the two of them on an average evening, after lessons :giggle:

Also, a word of advice on file formats, always use PNG as your image extension, never use JPG, especially when it comes to artwork :) JPG's are lower quality and cause pixelation, which can take away an artworks' crispness and thus overall appeal. I haven't looked at each and every single piece in your gallery, but this work here is a JPG, and with your style of lighting, pixels are actually pretty visible in some areas :meow: Just something to keep in mind for your future works!

Keep it up as always, and I now proudly add myself to your watch list, that I should have been on a long time ago :D

So, Celestia is doing the academic equivalent of beating a child until he's tough enough to fight back. Yeah, I can see her doing that.

I can't help but wonder how much getting held up/ pulled back by your tail would actually hurt... but here I go injecting logic again. Silly me.

RD was smashing through a barn at the time, and moment's later she rainbow nuked it. Despite how she seems to be lazy in some of the episodes, I think she's undergone some sort of training regimen at some point to increase her body's tolerance towards pain, thus not making her indicative of any baseline from which to measure how much being held by your tail hurts in Equestria imho.

I agree, though I think holding by tail must be painful, though to a different degree for different ponies.

Great job by the way, I love the shading applied on the characters and the environment. Its just perfect :D The coloring is excellent as well, but my favorite aspect of it is the concept of the image. Celestia taking care of Twilight is so adorable to see :D

The use of shading and color to produce texture and depth, well done. The subject matter is cute and very slice of life. I like the work, it is very impressive.

I do like it whenever a unicorn picks another pony up just by their tail. I don't know why, but it's just adorable to me.
