Started this in the morning after drooling over Thomas Moran.
Been feeling a bit antsy to paint something. This will be one of those paintings I work on every now and then, so I don't know when it will be finished.

More or less a newer version of this: [link]
Which was done about a year ago.

Values, layout, and preliminary work.
~3.5 hours.

I love this. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this as a large print and hang it on my living room wall.
Everything about this is incredible, but I especially like the way you did the sky. Excellent work.

Oh my goodness, this is an AWESOME picture of the fields outside Canterlot. With your permission, I'd like to use this as a concept art for my MLP game in conception. You will get full creditation for your contribution in the credits, I assure you. May I use this piece to base landscapes / level design off?

So beautiful. This reminds me of going to Vancouver on a road trip. I go through three hours of driving through towns, looking at the massive landscape of trees and mountains before I reached there. Not to mention how I can sometimes feel broke stepping in there hehe. Other words, I love how you capture the sunrise (or sun set) over Canterlot.

This really reminds me of Yosemite Valley (which no surprise considering you were drooling over Thomas Moran). But I think if Carelton Watkins existed in Equestria, his photographs would look a lot like this.

Sweet sisters that is a amazing painting. I must say, you do some of the best art out there. Seriously amazing.

The "older" version of this was my desktop background for nearly 3 months.

Needless to say, if this ever gets finished it will retake its rightful place. Super exciting!
