This is without a doubt the absolutely most beautiful piece of art I have ever seen of Twilight. There's so much adorableness about this picture but the things that struck me the most are the mane and the tail - they're so beautiful. I think my favorite colour changed because of this; the mane's incredible purple tint. Just amazing!
You're one of the very few people who thinks so (others tend to label him a dork, an immature child, a jerk, a pet, or just plain unimportant). I watched the vendor floor walk-through from Everfree NW, and the guy is really hard to spot! Might make a good drinking game.
