:iconbethiebo: is an awesome friend and an awesome artist and it only made sense for me to make her a little something for her Birthday! Thanks for coming to my streams, giving me advice and being all-round awesome! I hope you like this little thing!
Yo, everyone reading this, go give her a hug and a watch and CAKE or something!:iconfluttersadplz: If you want to that is.

Also big thanks to :iconalorpax:, :iconpurgeslc: and :iconwhistlingbrony: for putting up with my whining about shading and being helpful all around. GIVE THEM HUGS AND WATCHES TOO! GO ON, DO IT!

Technical stuff: This whole thing probably doesn't look like much but it was actually a pretty big challenge for me. Shading especially was a very hard task which I wasn't used to so I probably made tons of mistakes even in this simple style. I also got caught up in SO MANY little details, making sure shades were lined up right and that each stroke's end had no random stray pixels - stuff that probably wouldn't have even been visible after scaling down. On the whole it was a learning experience, but I won't be too quick to say it was a fun one. I guess the fun will come in time..hopefully. I also probably have some grave anatomy errors (Derpy's hindleg for example) and certain things really gave me a challenge (trying to make that weird back 3/4 pose not look like side which was SUCH A PAIN and I eventually just ragequit on it.) And don't even get me started on the composition or "background"! (or rather total lack of them)

I'd appreciate if you asked for permission from :iconbethiebo: if you want to draw her ponysona or use the design for anything.
Time elapsed: 26 hours (Really, I'm THAT slow)
SAI stats: 70 layers (not counting sources and sketches)
Photoshop stats: 2 layers
Tools: SAI and Photoshop CS4 post processing

:bulletblack:My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic belongs to Lauren Faust, DHX Media Vancouver, Hasbro and Top Draw Studios;
:bulletblack: Bethiebo's ponysona belongs to herself obviously.

:iconderpynoesplz:: Pinkie Pie! How did you-wait, nevermind. The Doctor says never to question such things.

I'm guessing the ponies stopped trying to question Pinkie a long while ago.

What th-? How th-? H-How'd she FIT in that small envelope!? Oh wait... it's Pinkie Pie...

Awesome deviation, can't wait for more in the future! :D

Pinkie needs no explanation, I'm guessing the residents of Ponyville are already pretty used to impossible things going on around there. :)

Thank you, hope I won't disappoint. ^^

She never saw it coming, and Derpy had no idea. She knew not what horror she had visited upon that poor, brown pony with a simple letter.

As the letter exchanged hooves, it began to shake and deform. A high-pitched whining noise could be heard from within, which eventually resolved itself into an ear-piercing "HI!!!!", as the dangerous Pinkie Pie (Pinkius Piacus) contained within burst forth and wrapped itself around the unfortunate unicorn....

Bethiebo was never heard from again, and the unfortunate mailpony that witnessed the incident has yet to come out of her catatonic state. All she does, according to her attending nurses, is rock back and forth on her bed and moan "I just don't know what went wrong....".

Way to get all creepy on this. XD I can only hope that Derpy's reaction was due to her being shocked and not administered a dose of muffins fast enough but as is the case in Equestria, even near-mortal wounds can be healed in 1 week of bed rest so I wouldn't worry. ^^
