First Rain in Canterlot by DarkFlame75 First Rain in Canterlot by DarkFlame75
Goes best with this website to create a rainy mood: [link]

Twilight enjoys the first rain of the year in Canterlot.

Inspired by the fact that today was the first rain where I live.

Also, I think I should mention that this heavily uses my headcanon that the Canterlot we see in the show is "Upper Canterlot" where the nobles live. The real city is down below at the foot of the cliff.

Welp. I think this is pretty easily my best work yet. I did this in today's livestream over the course of about 7 and a half hours.

I'm pretty satisfied with this one (Obviously), but I'm even happier because I still see things that could use improvement.

Livestream Recording(s): [link] (It seems that Livestream somehow failed to save part 2 to their servers. I have it locally still, so I'll keep trying to make a timelapse of it all. No promises though since Procaster saves in a weird codec) Update: The local recording is an extremely crappy quality. I can literally count the pixels every frame. I won't even bother at this point.

Also, during the livestream, chumpy made this [link]

Never tell an artist something creative.

Why have I not seen this till now? o.o
Dang this is good!
I'm gonna imagine that an epic battle had just finished between Twilight and some opponent (Trixie maybe), and the lingering magic from the onslaught of spells has caused a change in the weather, bringing in the first rainstorm that Canterlot has ever witnessed. (probably due to the high-brow nobles of Canterlot complaining that rainy weather is not necessary in the middle of a city and will only stain their oh-so-important fashion)

You. I like you.
It was your drawing that has inspired this idea in my mind. I like you as well.
