The 30 minute challenge had a special 24 hour challenge for Thanksgiving. This was one of my submissions which I'm posting separately cuz of the holiday. I also had to wait because I didn't want to upload it before it was presented on the challenge blog.
The background is super rushed, but I'm a little interested in whether the difference in coloring the characters is noticeable. I took a very different approach to color this in a hurry and I'm curious as to whether it's obviously different.
Edit:Thanks to whoever submitted this to Equestria Daily! It managed to get into their 1000th Drawfriend. Congrats to them on that.
And anyway, it's turkey you want, so you should put down Elizabeak and go after Sir Gobblington.
I thought fluttershy feeds her carnivorous friends meat. Im just surprised they haven't eaten her since shes a horse.
They haven't eaten her because she has tamed them with "The Stare".
Well she did feed otters fish.
I always imagine as part of their evolutionary transition to a sentient species the ponies became omnivores. After all, that's how it went for our ancestors.
No! Don't kill Scootaloo!
Put the chicken down! Now!
Fluttershy, why do you always have to be such a killjoy?
It's a holiday! Have fun!
That chicken barely even knows what's going on, anyway.
"Not Mrs. Cluckerbotttom!"
"Well of course we're not going to _eat it_, Fluttershy! We're going to present it as a bloody sacrifice to the Cthonic Gods of the Everfree, giving thanks that another year has gone by without any of us being devoured by forest monsters!"
Omnivores, man. It's crazy times.
Jeez, Fluttershy, have some respect for tradition.
Yeah, don't kill one of Scootaloo's relatives.
Why does everyone think the ponies are horrified at the idea of meat eating? Honestly, it's really starting to get annoying.
Nah, it's just Fluttershy
Yet she feeds fish to her otters and worms to her birds. I don't why the brony fandom seems to think they would find another sentient species eating meat barbaric.
I'm a vegetarian, and I really hate this tradition.
Poor Fluttershy. Cute art, the expressions are good.
Thanks! I've really been looking for more reasons to draw more extreme emotions.
Fun fact: I actually brainstormed a similar idea with Rainbow Dash and Gilda, but I didn't think people would be as sympathetic to them
thanksgiving chicken... DEEEEEELICIOUS!
Now that I think about it, I didn't have chicken or turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. I had roast beef. I wonder if Fluttershy would mind if Applejack went for a cow...
"And it's not even a turkey! It's Elizabeak!"
