Hey Acry, I has a question!

I wanna do an MLP-ish commission, but as a recreation of an existing photograph from history, recontextualised into a moment from the history of an MLP country from the Hearts of Iron 4 Equestria at War mod.

My question is, well, the scene may involve a crowd. I don't need the crowd to be detailed, but I need it to be apparent there's a lot of people in the scene. Is that something you'd be willing to do, and if so, how would you see yourself going about it, and how much would it cost? :)

Hello!
Ooooh, interesting question O.O
I have to say, war related imagery is something I'm not that great at, and I've never actually tried drawing a crowd before, so it's quite difficult for me to answer really ^^; I don't wanna promise I can when this is certainly something that I could be quite intimidated by

Hmm, okay, well, I suppose that's fair enough. It doesn't need to be a lot, it could just be a silhouette or something would work, but let me explain my idea, as that might put some more context to it.

Long story Long: A recreation of one of the famous photograph from the American Civil Rights movement, involving the Little Rock 9 following Brown v Board... Except MLP!
 ualr.edu/race-ethnicity/files/…
In history, it's when the USA finally desegregated their schools, but due to segregationists harassing and blocking the 9 African-American students sent to Little Rock school, the federal government intervened by sending in the National Guard to escort the students to school... Except with ponies and griffins! 

It's based off something which happened in an MLP mod for the WW2 strategy game, Hearts of Iron 4. There's a griffin nation known as the Knightly Order of Hellquil equestria-at-war.fandom.com/wi… think a little, olde German, Teutonic Order sort of thing, which has a nasty, 300 year long history of subjugating, suppressing, and outright trying to ethnically clense their land of indigenous ponies. However, one of the leaders who can assume control of the country, August Von Ortelsberg, makes it his mission to prosecute and execute the previous leadership for their crimes against ponykind, before actively working to bring equality to ponykind in Hellquil, as the nation's new duke (or he can establish a republic, but I went with duke because, hey, he's already a dictator. :p). During his reforms, one event which pops up is a debate about mixed race schools of ponies and griffins, with the counter argument being that 'ponies and griffins have different needs' *cough*BS*cough*, and so I always, ALWAYS, agree to it, even if I don't actually need the benefit to the more progressive ideologies. However, the core of it is the similarity of it to Brown vs Board from America to me, so: Ponies!

It doesn't need to be AS detailed as the real thing, but that's the core of the idea. ^^;
