canterlot palace by CosmicUnicorn canterlot palace by CosmicUnicorn


Canterlot Palace -- day, evening, and night.


Based off of a screencap. I needed a general painting of the palace that I could reuse for anything else. Decided to make an evening and a night version as well.
And painting scenery is a good exercise.


Compression is kinda crappy... but the original is HUGE and I'm too lazy to compress it correctly... :p

Always I have thought that canterlot is like the temple of the sisters of the destination, abundance of traps and mortal enemies.

and Kratos say: I am going to go in search of the magic corno of the flying pegaso, to kill to zeus and to the gods who betrayed me, this way have to kill every canterlot!!!!!

This is a wonderful image! Hey, I wanted to ask if it was possible for me to use it in a forum banner? Obviously, with your signature and proper credit. Great job!

This is gorgeous =) I'm so crap at painting backgrounds and landscapes, and I have enormous respect for anyone patient enough to tackle them.

Can we have the hires of the day version too? I already have the evening one as my wallpaper, and would absolutely love to have the three in rotation! ^^

Loving your work btw, keep it up. :D

Oh, that's just gorgeous. Day vs night would have been good, but the color work at sunset is joyous. Love that palette to bits. Makes me want to stand on one of the balconies and just drink the place in. :)

Nicely done on them, I wonder do you have a much higher resolution version or even if I could borrow your PSD file. I have a surprise arranged for the pony fans here. ;)

Or wait, I assumed by huge you meant resolution (I would like to be able to desktop it), if you meant filesize then I am dumb and nevermind.
