Canterlot library by josh-5410 Canterlot library by josh-5410
11x14" paper! Professional graphite pencil kit! Next level drawing apparatus is complete!
The library in Canterlot we saw in the first episode, where our favorite egghead dwelt all day reading every last book in the library. Can you imagine such a feat?
I gave it a more steampunk/victorian feel to it, as if this was how it looked way back when.
I'm not gonna lie, I don't really like this one. Didn't turn out right. It's probably my lack of experience with actual art pencils.. I'm not sure if I should keep using them or not. Or maybe it's because this took me what seemed to be forever to finish it and that set my standards ridiculously high. Maybe both? well, whatever. Hope you like it more than I do.
Completion time~ 28 hours over a period of 6 days.
Oh, and heads up- the download is ridiculously massive. Proceed at your own risk!

Heya, I wanted to use this picture for a video I'm doing for a reading of "Their Otherworldly Grace." Mind if I use the picture and credit you for it?

How did you stand drawing all those books?! I've drawn two small bookcases for a portrait of my pony OC Meep's room, and I'm a patient person so it wasn't too bad but I haven't worked on the drawing since LOL XD

Which reminds me, I really should get working on that again. :D

I wondered if you you would be interested in selling a single use or stock art rights license for this image? I would like to use this for a small pdf supplement for a roleplaying game. If so please email me via Steve at RitePublishing dot com

Holy crap (excuse the language), this looks awesome! The hybridization of show and steampunk style, this actually reminds me a bit of the Duke's Archive's from Dark Souls (without the insane Crystal monsters!)

I have to add one more fav to this. As last I checked, it was at 599 favs ;p EXCELLENT job!
