Well, being an Earth Pony Princess is not so great. Alicorn seems to be much more fun.
I'm really excited for the Season 3 finale. While people panic about Twilight with wings, I present to you a vision of Princess Twilight without her horn.
She has a bit of a 'princessy' look (long legs, long hair, etc.), but with several differences: instead of that fancy crown thingy, she has a diadem - she is depicted as one of the humble Earth Ponies after all. Also, I decided to replace her fancy boots with bracers and added a matching necklace. All of this presented in a weird foreshortening perspective. Ta-da!
I've recently found my old colored pencil stash and instead of studying for my finals, I was drawing ponies, what is clearly much more important.
I hope it's good enough to share (It's been so long since I've made traditional art, and it's always been rather lousy) and I also hope you'll like it.
I would appreciate any feedback, and If you're a reddit user, you can also leave me an imaginary internet point there, I wouldn't be mad at all if you did. Here you go.

Hmm, I think without the horn, she makes me think of an old English kingdom where her father has fallen ill and appointed her as ruler.
She has a hard time winning over her kingdom as she is a girl, but she manages it.
