The hills are on fire. Columns of smoke waft up into the sky like clouds being born.

The moon wraps herself in the crimson tatters of sunset like a dancer behind veils. She runs just fast enough to avoid the march of indigo and the steel-grey ironclad clouds.

The road loops; drift in this state and you'll go around in circles forever. The radio tells me stories of men broken in the jungle and towns broken by neglect. Gardens and castles nestle alongside dirt and tin shacks. Again, I pass the river, all the violent burrs of the long grass smoothed into liquid by the half light. Again, I pass the school, moving from ghostly gums to the pine forests of Norway.

I wonder at the hills; who started the fires. I wonder at the streetlights as they stand to attention all at once. I wonder at the corner shop, alone in the suburb with no parking in sight. I wonder at the garden of roses so bright red they stand out vividly through the blue evening. I wonder at the trails of red running through the trees like streamers. I wonder at my broken shoelaces which bind my feet from walking.

While I wonder I see too late the turn-off to the main road. It passes like a polite suggestion.

I go around again.

I possess a relentless - some would say insane - drive for self improvement. As such, I am teaching myself how to draw from absolutely nothing. One picture a day, every day, no excuses. Currently posting them to a forum thread until I consider myself to possess basic competence.


I take art trades and requests! I am fairly rubbish so I cannot remotely guarantee quality.

This is quite phenominal. Can you describe briefly the context for what's going on there?

Comet Kicker is my character in a Fallout: Equestria tabletop game. The descendant of a long line of Kickers and loyal soldier of the Pegasus Enclave, Comet Kicker got unfortunately stranded upon the surface when a military operation went FUBAR. Now she's stuck with a bunch of surface ponies, trying to complete her original mission while sowing collateral good along the way (Collateral is the right word, because Comet is an explosives specialist). Essentially a Dashite who nopony's got around to branding.

There are a few possible reads of the piece; the exact composition was up to the artist's discretion. My favoured reading is that Comet climbed to the maximum altitude she could endure and paused in wonder as the sun rose over the horizon. Her descent will start soon, and when it does she'll leave a white-comet contrail through the entire sky on her path to strike the earth.

Another read, suggested by a friend, is Comet looking at a town blow up on the horizon and thinking "Whoops."
