From Start to Finish, Twilight pixel pic by FoldawayWings From Start to Finish, Twilight pixel pic by FoldawayWings
Young Twilight to the left, older Twi to the right.

I bet she'd make a really awesome old mare. Maybe a cool aunt to Shining and Cadance's foal(s)? Looks pretty good with a white mane, anyway. Or so I think.

Yeesh... This started as a random doodle yesterday afternoon, and ended up like this late last night. Did the whole bloody thing with a mouse, since I felt too lazy to hook up my drawing pad, and as a result...

Anyone have a spare hand? Mine seems to have quit, citing an unsafe work environment~

I love the outfits, and old Twi does look awesome (even if we know now she'll probably never be old.) I wonder if the checklist that is at its end is the one that's at its beginning for young Twi; she's just so OCD that it was just that long!

There's something about this piece that I just can't get enough of! I've been following your work for a little bit, and I have to say that there's just something... I dunno, poetic or harmonic about your style. I love it. ^.^

And you did this with a mouse only? I am THOROUGHLY impressed! D:

Anywho, keep up the fantastic work! ^.^

Nice to hear that boredom and procrastination can churn-out something so praiseworthy~ I thank you for the comment!

The results are pretty, but the mouse-thing is going to be the end of me someday. -w-;
Dear, oh deary dear-dear...

Until then, happy scribblings~

beautiful, but I wonder how her white mane would look if it still had the purple stripe too?

FoldawayWings Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2013
Purple too? Well, it's more colorful, but less faded-aged-looking.
Since the pink stripe is a near match for Twi's magic aura, I headcanoned that it'd also be sorta magic, and thus the last of her mane to grey-out...

But MSpaint's real easy to edit, if you want to see for yourself!

Thanks for the comment~ ^w^

Entirely with a mouse? Geez, that's hard! I am impressed.

I love both Twi's, but I'm kinda a bit extra in love with Older Twi's no-nonsense ponytail. (Heh. Ponytail.) That seems so very, very Twilight.

Of all the various Twis, alicorn or future or filly or what have you, Twilight with a ponytail/bun is my guilty favorite...
She's a librarian, it just fits her! Fits her very very well~

And don't encourage me with the mouse-thing, my poor hand won't thank you for it At All. -.-;

But, happy you like it!

I'm very glad you didn't make her old self look decrepit she looks experienced and that she can still kick some ass

Can't actually remember seeing a decrepit-looking unicorn in the show... Always assumed they either didn't show age much, or had a standard glamor spell everypony used.

But either way, Twi's the sort who'd be sure to stay in-shape, if only to keep outrunning Hydras~

It's really good :D.

I like the details in Old Twilight's clothes, (even if the TS looks like a $ )

The $ is blatant once pointed out... Strange how you can stare at something for hours without seeing parts of it. OwO;

Twilight before sunrise and after sunset. It is poetical, awesome work.

'Poetical' is such a pretty word... So happily do I accept your praise!
Now, please excuse me while I start preening~

Neat concept. I really really like the design of their outfits. They are very fitting and tell a bit of a story. Nice work!

Holy crap. Twilight with white hair totally works. Amazing job with her outfits, especially! That "TS" pin on her older self -- that wouldn't happen to be the standard taper symbol you see on chemistry glassware, would it?

Last things first. Indeed it is the ST mark; thought it an allusion Twi would've liked, amateur mad scientist that she is~

Twilight, it seems, has the colors best suited to aging of the Mane Six. Lavender and white do go rather nice together! ^w^

Very glad you like~
