The Best Teacher We Could Hope For by harwicks-art The Best Teacher We Could Hope For by harwicks-art
Seriously, the CMC's could not do better. Anyone that gets potioned by her students, comes to on a mattress in the bottom of a pit while wearing bridal attire, and then still shows up for work the next day has some serious dedication to the teaching profession.

Another (comparatively) less-complex pony portrait, this time of oh-so-nice Cheerilee. It's certainly not the most dynamic image, but I hadn't drawn her yet and she proved to be a relaxing subject to sketch. Very good for my frazzled stress levels.

And while she definitely loved the 80's, I promise you that's just chalk dust. That stuff has to taste horrible. One more reason Earth Ponies are the hardest working ponies around.

Love the detail with the chalk dusk, it does a lot for the image.

Looks like she's teaching some hardcore 1,2,3's there

When I see this, I'm surprised she doesn't call in sick every second day.
She should really hold the chalk with her hooves. :D

"Ah, Ms. Cheerilee... you got something, uh, right here..."

 

I say this is a nice drawing, and if a Pegasus landed a job as I teacher, this would happen to them as well. But I got this to say; fingers rock! xD

You'd think that somepony out there would have already invented some type of chalk holder. Also, I can't imagine how hard it is to draw when the chalk is only a few centimeters from her eyes, a bit surprising she's not cross-eyed.

It seems to add to what others would call "adorable," so I'm pretty sure this was intentional.
Personally, I'm wondering if she hates her work some days because it must taste awful.

The thing that bothers me is that everything is so well detailed with the exception of that perfectly clean two dimensional chalkboard ledge. It's like it was added as an afterthought.
