Lyra and Bon Bon flying paper airplanes by Dori-to Lyra and Bon Bon flying paper airplanes by Dori-to
TeiThePony asked me to do a song cover for him featuring Bon Bon and Lyra. This morning I made a promise to myself; tonight I will finish this drawing, and so I did! I hope you like it!


Before I started drawing this I was lacking inspiration, I didn't really know what Bon Bon and Lyra would do to entertain themselves when they were fillies. But then I remembered something that I really enjoyed when I was little: folding paper airplanes and throw them as far as possible! (I actually still do that...)

Once I got my idea down it opened a whole new door of opportunities; for instance Lyra sitting down and using her hooves as hands to try and fold the planes. Apparently Bon Bon didn't have that problem because she's allready happily throwing them around, so figure that one out yourself...

I'm not 100% satisfied about this work. I actually threw the whole first version away because they were looking like G3 ponies (THE HORROR!!). The background was also a new challenge. I had only done some small backgrounds in comic, but this one's way more important. So, I'm still learning in that area.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my work!

Sorry for the late reply. Usually I challenge people to draw the cutest possible Fluttershy, but I guess a Flutterhulk would be cool too. You choose. What would you like me to draw? (I think I will be doing mine in traditional media since my tablet is derp)

Awesome work, I still love to make paper airplanes to this day, I love it.  I was wondering actually, could I use the Lyra you drew in this for part of an Icon I'm working on?
