Hello everybody and I'm sorry I don't reply to all your messages, but that usually means I'm not open yet. This time it's a commission for :iconmarleyrome12: depicting a street of the Canterlot city(town?) and his pony OC Sacred Heart. It wasn't easy to construct a logicaly sane structures that are still somehow close to the accurate depiction as the show tends to change it completly with each angle. It always amazed me how chaotic and grotesque it's architecture is while still staying consistent and charming. Of course I allwed myself for some creative freedom :)

This is an absolutely gorgeous piece! I love how it feels like we're seeing Canterlot for the first time with her; and it's such a fantastical thing to behold. Excellent work! :D

WOAH. This is one of the most magical pictures I have ever seen. I don't think I have ever seen a picture that stood out more then this one. This is amazing... It's so realistic yet magical, and the shading and everything is perfect. All I can say is this is crazyyyyy good. This has to be one of my favorite pieces of art I have ever seen! <3

Aw, I love small touches given with the background characters, like Fancypants and Fleur de Lis having lunch, Diamond Tiara and Filthy Rich being happy, and Sweetie Drops' in her "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" outfit. You also made Canterlot look very inviting too, and the OC is cute.

Y' know...
Calling this piece just "Spectacular" is almost an insult.
So... I hereby dub this "Epic Spectacular"

Nice work with the mist! I love how you used that to incorporate Canterlot's high altitude.
