Tardy Nightmare by KuroiTsubasaTenshi Tardy Nightmare by KuroiTsubasaTenshi
After seeing Twi in what must be the pony equivalent of the fetal position, stroking her tail, something in my mind just went off on a tangent. Like wondering if maybe the fear was more deeply seeded and what the explanation might be for why she decided to comfort herself by stroking her tail.

Anyway, this sketch was a little more involved than usual and took closer to 80 minutes. Done with 2H and level adjusted.

The older one is actually her mom (take a close look at the pattern on the bangs, it's a sure fire way to tell the difference when her curl isn't showing) as seen in Cutie Mark Chronicles.

why was twilight's exceptionable hot JK mom there watching her sleep... or a bar of soap?

Heh, I guess I can see why you thought the mattress might be a bar of soap. I'm still working a bit on my props.

As for her mom, well, maybe she was walking by an heard Twilight cry out. Or perhaps this is a recurring nightmare and she's started checking up on her daughter every hour or two.

i think this would be way more awesome if she was sleeping on a bar of soap but why would her mom be there watching her sleep when she's a full grown mare?

Um, actually, that's supposed to be filly Twilight. I was trying to suggest that the fear of being tardy and sent back a grade is something that started early in her school career and that her mom used to comfort her by stroking her tail.

You know what? I could totally see a pony parent calming a foal down by stroking their tail like that.

This is a really neat concept, Kuroi! :D

Hehe, thanks, I'm glad we're on the same wavelength. :) I was a little bit worried people might find it weird compared to the other ways they could be calming through affection.
