COMMISSIONED BY ~Karhunenen, a friend of mine.

"Day 21.
Entry #1
Pinkie is still in no shape to walk on her own, due to her going off doing her hops skips and jumps we've got to carry her for two days. Guess we can't blame her, she can't help her personality, that's our Pinkie.

Entry #2
We've reached the higher peaks, nearing the highest of mountains. For now we found a good, easy to go path going along the mountainside. It's long enough for us to draw some breath after endless climbing, let alone those two fellows with wings. They're good to carry Pinkie now, while Rarity takes the hold of Dash's equipment.. After a hefty while of squabbling. That pony sure does anything to get her hooves out of work.

Entry #3
Dusk is falling, we're catching breath for a minute. It's about time to slow down and find a place for an encampment. Sky's pretty clear, going to be a cold night.. Not that we'd have trouble with it, but Pinkie hasn't been on her feet for a while. If someone of us were to catch a cold here, it'd slow us down way too much. Not to mention what it'd cause to Pinkie at her current state. At least she seems to be pretty well concious at the moment.
But we have to get moving now, before it gets too dark."

Well, yeah. I still suck at writing, I know. But I thought this needed at least some idea of a backstory going.
Finally I got this one out, have had this under my pencil for over three weeks for now as I've been pretty low on passion for drawing for a while now.

Overall this was quite fun one to do, especially figuring out the background was pretty fun. But oh, those mountains went through so many geographical fixes, I'm still not totally satisfied with them but can't help it.
And the piles of reference material I had to scavenge through was just inhumane, when I started this I realised how small my memory archive about mountains were.

"Dear friends in higher places, carry me away from here." I can't help but think of this song when I see the title. Beautiful artwork as always!

Well done with this image. It just shows how much the magic of friendship means to the Mane 6.

"That pony sure does anything to get her hooves out of work."
Even in the direst circumstances, she balks at getting sweaty for a friend in critical need.

That made me hate her. I admit.

I love the journal story description btw!

Rarity looks so small, I understand its the perspective, but you could make her a little bit like Applejack's size in the painting...

Still professional work on the painting, I love it! Scenery is excellent and beautiful, characters are nice.
