I decided to make another abstract picture, this time one with the Golden Oaks Library that was burnt down at the end of Season 4 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
This time I used a screenshot for this and add my little spin on that image.

It was made with PaintToolSai and some color enhancements were done with Photoshop.
This picture took roughly a month to make with a lot of pauses between each painting session.

Echoing my thoughts from elsewhere: I like this a lot. It has a very Wassily Kandinsky/Franz Marc feel to it.

Thanks a lot.

Certainly it's more leaned towards to Franz Marc's style. It's the main inspiration for this style (and thinking about impossible paper foldings and cuts).

The crisp edges of all the shapes appeared to be the kind you can only achieve through a vectoring program. I was surprised it was done on SAI.

They look so crisp because the picture was originally painted in a much higher resolution and I resized it down.
It is a very simple trick.

Whoa, that is an interesting piece of art!  Feels like I'm looking at a Picasso drawing!

This needs to be a print.  I would pay one money for this.

I don't know if I make it available as a print but I feel flattered.

Well, now that's an interesting concept. It's not a picture you see every day in this fandom.

Pictures you see every day are boring, am I right?

Eh, people just NEED TO misinterpret everything in the worst possible way, eh? Pictures I see every day are just not 'abstract' :P

I realized it is suppose to be a shot from outside. but somehow it looks like it's inside of the library.
