Something from Christmas 2012 by RenaTurnip Something from Christmas 2012 by RenaTurnip
Please check out the full original WIP here: [link]

This was something I started in November for the Ravishing Diamonds blog, run by the lovely *WhiteDiamondsLtd and intended it as a gift for mostly everybody who frequented the blog. The response was extremely positive, although I was never able to finish it due to time constraints, stress, life, and my general inability to texture things. However, I didn't want all of this to go to waste, or rather, I did want to get it in my gallery one day... but I don't think I'll ever finish the full image now. Instead I took all the primary assets and gathered them together to form what you see here :o

My apologies to Miss Diamonds, Harwick, and everybody else who may have hoped one day to see a finished product, but I'm afraid this turnip will need much more practice before I ever truly attempt to tackle something like this :iconfluttershysqueeplz:

A lazy upload, but a worthy one, I think. Intended representations here were:

Scrolls :iconcainescroll:
Grasswhistle :iconrenaturnip:
Ponydora Prancypants :iconprancypants:
Rarity as :iconwhitediamondsltd:
Glue bottle Rarity in a steampunk hat as :iconzhoomcar:
Giant Spike as :iconharwicks-art:
Octavia as :iconjodyjm13:
And Twilight Sparkle as the best anonymous OC ever :giggle:

By the way zhooms do you want that as an icon? It fits the box, so I can do something with it if you'd like me to.

Also there are no pegasi here :iconheplz:

Oh, dear Goddess... I have once again been busy and largely absent from this place, so I'm afraid I haven't seen this submission until now, but I have got to say that it is a huge and absolutely fabulous surprise... I honestly never expected to see this project uploaded here, even though I always hoped I would! I have already gone on about how much I loved this image of yours on my blog of course, but seriously dear it is absolutely hilarious, and adorable, and so incredibly thoughtful on your behalf that I just can't express my love of it in enough words. Thank you so much again for doing it and now, for uploading it here, and no worries about never "finishing" it... in my own opinion it really is quite perfect the way it is!

I kind of wasn't sure if I was ever going to upload it here either :< But I felt it was better to display what I had than let it collect dust forever. It was too good of a project to let "die" in that way, so, here it is :o

Even if I could never finish the scenery around them, I was glad that at least I could represent all the characters and their activities, since that is most definitely where the heart of the whole image was. I wasn't really satisfied with myself when I first posted it, but I was much more focused on what I didn't do than what I had, of course... I am just happy that everybody could see the spirit of it for what it was meant to be. I am still grateful for that to this day :blushes:

T'was a year to remember, all there at the cabin,
Drinking punch by the embers, lit up by a dragon,
The next will be better, that I declare,
But put on a sweater; it's cold out there.

I wish I knew who that anonymous user was, though. I think they stole my OC... I copyrighted her and everything.

Actually... I tend to see this girl all over deviantART. Artists really love her. They've even given her a set of wings :1 Really, everyone just thinks they can use such a design for themselves!

I'm beginning to think I'm the only person who hasn't tried my hand at poetry of some sort around the blog xD

I can see why they would be jealous of my writing abilities. She's the student of Celestia, the sixth element of Harmony, the niece of Princess Candence, the Princess of Something and the most powerfulest alicorn in all of Equestria. She must be the best pony ever made. Take that, Nyx.

(No small text because I don't know how to do it apart from the sub/sup tag)
I wouldn't honestly consider that poetry, as I only took a minute of thought to write it, but that is Ponydora's area of expertise. We are mere observers to such literary excellence.

I already did that once :icontwilightheeplz:

But on Firefox it doesn't look like a staircase or anything, which was a bit of a letdown. It only looked good on Chrome.

Because i'm an alternate dimension glue bottle R63 version of Rarity in the ponyverse?

I think I prefer my roughly made icon, though I probably just want to get rid of that white background but I'm too lazy. Thanks for the offer though.

Nothing can beat the charm of what you've got now :P I just figured I'd ask.

Although nothing's stopping me from drawing a few more glue bottles :icontwilightheeplz:

Awesome looking sprites, a finished version would have been cool, but your reasons for never finishing are understandable

If I was still inspired, I'd give it a try, but I've got a lot of things to still learn. The floor and the wall (as you can see in the WIP link) kind of defeated me. Texturing is weird stuff...

Thanks though o:

WIPS! \o/ The spike icon/window looks freakin fabulous by the way.

What sick man doesn't even put a bow on the green pressy.

Well it's plain to see where I got Spike from :B

Also considering I am both a turnip and a woman, I am not sure how this question applies!

This is probably the piece de resistance of Rena's gallery. I squee'd so hard when I first saw it~ ^^

Thanks for making this, Rena. You're the best~ :hug:

Pfffft xD Haha. Is that what you think? :3 I think there are better in this silly gallery of mine.

Really though, nobody can deny it's pretty hard to beat the gift corner and the two silent onlookers. That is one of the best things I've ever done, surely.
