Autumn by DoubleBackstitchArts Autumn by DoubleBackstitchArts
Autumn. Colors aren't as bright, but are deeper. Life is starting to slow, but it seems to go by so fast. In everything around you, you remember the seasons that have passed with fondness, and through that you appreciate the time you have now even more. Emotion is not dulled by time as color and warmth have been, it is sweetened. The cool of the change in weather is tolerable, because there is somepony to keep you warm. Her color isn't dulled, it's deeper. A trade for the life of good times you had with her. With all the slow days you spent just being together, they all seem to have passed so quickly. You remember the life you had with her with fondness, knowing that there's no way you could love her then any more than you do now. That love hasn't been dulled but time, it's been sweetened. Her warmth is all you need to be happy forever.

Autumn, third in a series of four images I have planned. No, I didn't forget Cobalt's mud. Her mud, if you knew Cobalt, she wears because she was ignored as a foal by those around her. Her Promise let her know that she didn't need that mud for him to notice her a long time ago, and she hasn't needed it since.

Image was also created as a submission to *Nazegoreng's contest, as seen here: Go watch and fav all 'o her stuffs if you haven't already! Original pic in that frame can be seen here:

Cobalt Tangle is the wonderful *Nazegoreng's ponysona, and Latent Promise is mine. Yes, they're an official thing ;p

My gosh Promise.. the feels ;_;. I'm literally sitting here breathless. Why do you do this to me?

Because I wanted to share with you some emotion. I believe in a love forever enduring, one that I wish I had, and one I hope to find one day. All of that was put into this piece. Maybe I do this to you as a thanks for allowing me the chance to show that through our characters ^ ,^

I never thought a romance between two OCs could give me that feel-good smile. I can now say that I was greatly mistaken. This is a very sweet portrait, and that second part of the description made this so much more touching.

Mr. Promise is quite the lucky stallion.

I just drew, and wrote, what was in my heart. It's something I've always dreamed of having. I'm glad this was able to make you smile n ,n

Mr. Promise is really quite lucky, and I envy him much.
