Wow. How far she's gone. It's like watching a child grow up. When I first saw Twilight get her wings, I was surprised and kinda wished she didn't become an alicorn. But, like a parent with a child, the parent doesn't want the child to grow up so fast because they're afraid of losing them and losing who they are and become something they're not. I've learned to deal with it and I just love seeing her go on and becoming an alicorn worth remembering. Our little Twilight is growing up.
If this was animated, I swear filly Twilight would be hoping around and saying yes over and over. And if this happend in the show(which would be the cutest thing ever) Twilight would propably have a field day asking her older self about what they will do when they get older.
Hmm well this artwork could have meaning. Filly Twilight is looking happy and looking towards the future and wanting learn all there is to magic. She was innocent and didn't know what to expect. She was just living life through her eyes. Unicorn Twilight stops and this can show that after becoming a princess, she fears that life won't be the same as it was before. She's afraid of what is to come and doesn't know how to overcome them, which is normal in everyone's lives. In this moment, this is a HUGE step for her. Once a student of Celestia suddenly becomes a princess all of a sudden. Lol, wouldn't you stop and be like, "Wait what?" lol. Celestia just quickly made her into a princess without warning. For Alicorn Twilight, she looks back at everything she's learned and overcome from being with her friends. She's become stronger, more intelligent, and spreads her knowledge to those who need her guidance. She will continue to do this through her princess life and with her friends to help her, there really isn't anything she can't do. So she looks backs and remembers how she became friends with Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie. Saving Equestria countless times and gaining experience. If she ever has her own student, the cycle will continue and the magic of friendship will go on and continue to enlighten the lives of many.
