Lyra and Bon-Bon by lunarapologist Lyra and Bon-Bon by lunarapologist
Submission for today's EqD Artist Training Grounds. Even keeping it black and white, I still had to rush this out the door.

Confound these ponies! They drive me to have ideas that I can't finish before the deadlines!

lots of lawls

Plus, who came up with the names Lyra and Bon Bon for those two?

Not sure! I think the fandom just decided that those were as good of names as any since Lyra has a harp/lyre on her flank, and Bon-Bon's cutie mark looks like wrapped bon bons.

Why DO their benches have backrests on them? :-?

Ever see how a dog sits? Maybe that's how the benches are supposed to be used, and Bon Bon is the one using them wrong.

...

Wait, that hypocritical-!

But I'm just wondering.. how did this 'Lyra slouching' stuff start/come from? ;o

From about 2 minutes into "Dragonshy" - Lyra's on a bench, slouched just like that :)

Ive always thought of the backrests as more like side-rests, in that the ponies can sit like Bon-bon is and lean on the backrest to, well, rest.

Maybe! Though that particular bench design seems like it'd force ponies to sit muzzle-to-muzzle (awkwardly close), rear-to-rear (sorta weird), or muzzle-to-rear (just sort of insulting, really!)

formorian5 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011
What's awkward or weird to us isn't necessarily awkward or weird to ponies. Ponies would have a different culture and social norms than we do. One good example is that even though they have clothes, it's not considered wrong to go out without any form of clothing.

She makes a good point, if they didn't want her to act like a human, why'd they make everything in Equestria like that? :hmm:

Thank you! :D It's actually one of the first things I did, so I'm a little embarrassed by it's quality now :blush:

I hope to clean it up and redo it properly someday soon!

I actually wasn't the one to do the color version, and with daily drawings for EqD, I haven't had time to clean and color it myself. It's on the to-do list, though :)

Right? I mean, I guess they could be side-rests, but it seems like they'd build them a little different if that were the case.

Could be a design flaw no one wants to admit is really a flaw ?

Is Bonbon using it as support ? Could in theory be a headrest :p
