Future Twilight by TopGull Future Twilight by TopGull
Ever since I saw Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon in the season 1 opener, I kinda figured the whole "ethereal space mane" thing was a side effect of being a powerful magic user. That, and the altered proportions, too, I guess. So this is my take on what a time-travelling Twilight Sparkle would look like in the future. What do you think?

I'm trying to push myself to draw more detailed backgrounds. I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, but I know I can do better. If you have any ideas/advice/constructive criticism that could help me improve, I'd love to hear it.

EDIT: Fixed some bad edges, added some slight shading, and completely repainted the bookshelf.

Twilight Sparkle (C) Hasbro

I love the style of the mane, plus the idea of having it be an aurora, but I agree that the mane needs an outline. Luna's mane might be translucent, but it still has an outline which helps it not look weird. Plus it helps tell the mane and tail apart in shots like this.

Regardless, this is awesome.

A bit less ethereal maybe? It kind of looks like she is bald. And If you look at the alicorns, neither of them have completely transparent manes, just Luna has a partially transparent one. Just to mention, the background is absolutely fantastic. The idea is good, but needs improving.

This looks so cool! In an episode or two, there is going to be a future twilight that warns twilight about something dangerous happening! Is that where you got this idea or did you not know?

Yup! I got the idea for this after seeing the episode announcement on EqD.

I had a similar hypothesis. I thought that this future Twilight would say something along the lines of, "Be warned! You may never see your future if you remain their friends!"
