I had no idea you did the cover for this, but it's what made me read it. Amazing job.

i have got to learn how you do this... the style you use looks pretty unique to you, and being who i am i gotta try my hoof at it, the chances of me learning it are slim, mastering it, even slimmer then. but ill try :)

I really love your style of drawing, the form you use is pretty unique, and it makes the ponies look awesome.

Woot!
The story this wonderful art as commissioned for is currently on the front page of Equestria Daily! (With the version I colored and modified, with FoxInShadow's permission, of course.)

More than one person has mentioned the quality of the art as part of what attracted them to the story.
Thanks again for this!

That is amazing. If it's possible to love a character from lore alone, and never an appearance in an actual show,I love Starswirl the Bearded. Hee! :)

That would be the best/creepiest day ever. Of course, i am assuming that that is Starswirl the Bearded.

The story peaked at #10 on the popular stories list while it was on the front page. It's keeping a 25% Like to View ratio, which is pretty good. Thanks so much for a great image, FoxInShadow! :) Here's hoping the eventual EQD listing brings it to even more eyes.

That was a great little story, and thanks to Fox's incredible art for the cover, I got to 'watch' the whole thing in this amazing sketchy story in my head. :D

Thanks SO much for such a wonderful image to go with my story, FoxInShadow!

The story will be going live in the next day or two, with a slightly modified version of this image. I'll post the link here for anyone that's curious as to what this beautiful artwork is all about. (Hopefully, it will also be picked up by Equestria Daily in a week or so. *crosses fingers*)

It should be live, though as of this moment, it hasn't made it to the main page yet. 3 more in front of it, so another half hour or so. But here's the link, if you want to know what this pic is about:

Yes. Right now it's getting its final edits in GDocs, then I'll be activating the puplic version on FiMFiction. It's two chapters long and basically a Twilight-only episode in format.

Behold the timelessness of Starswirl the Bearded! Nice art btw. Ive always been a fan of your sketches. The specific way you draw the characters is very interesting. The proportions seem very nicely balanced. Hope to see it colored one day. :)

Indeed she is the prettiest.

But it's not easy to draw her as pretty as she deserves to be.
