That's How She Rolls by KYMSnowman That's How She Rolls by KYMSnowman
I felt it was time to draw an alicorn, and that alicorn turned out to be Celestia.

So, finally, I give you a piece that I am 100% happy turned out exactly how I envisioned it. This is undeniably my best piece to date and will probably be for a while.

This scene takes place some time after Celestia first began mentoring Twilight but before the events of the actual show. It's what I imagined Twilight and Spike's first encounter with her Trollestia side would be like.

Now, I'm not sure if I made it obvious or not, but I tried depicting Twilight and Spike a little bit younger than their television counterparts but a little older than they were in Twilight's flashback sequence in the Cutie Mark Chronicles episode. It was a lot easier than I expected it to be and the results are quite pleasing.

Also, yes, I believe I have put too much thought into this one piece of fan art.

Well, I hope you guys love it as much as I do. This was a blast to make.

EDIT: Okay, so it didn't turn out quite exactly how I envisioned it. I forgot to shadow in Twilight's far legs. Now it's perfect.
EDIT 2.0: I just wanted to make sure all characters were to scale. Turns out, they weren't. This has been fixed.
EDIT 3.0: I don't think I can handle all of these Drawfriend-bringing views! O_o You can find it here at #6: [link]

What would even make this better would be if her mane and tail were normal just to throw off the viewer. Which way would be right side up? Totally make everpony think they were on the ceiling?

She's been spending too much time with Discord again, hasn't she?!

Most Trollestia images I've seen show her in an way that's borderline-derogatory for someone (whether in the picture or just referenced in it), for some reason. I tend to prefer the ones that still show her as trolling to some extent, but don't rely on making someone look bad. You captured that perfectly. Very well done. :)

The fact that Twilight did this in S3 just makes it funnier.
