Hey, guys! I'm back :)
So this is inside Canterlot, where the Elements of Harmony are housed (most notable in the season 2 premiere). As I was collecting references from the show, I realized that the original was somewhat influenced by the interior of a cathedral. So I gave the whole thing a renaissance architecture feel, or at least tried to.. could have turned out better, but oh well.
Speaking of which, some parts are kind of messy and ambiguous, and less refined in terms of realism. I admit, I am a bit rusty, haha ^^; Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things though soon enough! But I must say, it feels great to start drawing again :D
This was an absolute monster to finish, though. Due to a metric crap tonne of trial and error from being bed sore from the pencil, completion time was 38 hours on and off for over a week~ new record! :la: Done on 11x14 inch paper.

Bro, Very awesome job you've made! May we collab in the future someday? I really need a background artist for the upcoming MLP movie.

MLP movie?? WHAAAAT :D Sounds awesome! But also seems very demanding.. so I don't know.. I don't have much time to myself these days, and chances are I won't I'll be able to keep up with you guys. Sorry, man. Besides, I'm sure there are more competent artists out there that you can find, haha. Good luck!

Great! This even has the stained glass windows. I have always been interested in what is on those windows, so this is a big bonus to the piece.

Thanks! Those windows took a lot of effort, so I'm glad you appreciate them :)
