My little schoolhouse by Devinian My little schoolhouse by Devinian
Yey CMC! This time I felt like delving into some carefree life of pony youth. Mainly I was interested in a schoolhouse. There was always something nice and cozy in those school houses from the past, that made me really want to be a part of it. This might have been the best part of the "Road to Avonlea".
 Actually, this piece was occupying my desktop for a longer time now and it was that moment to finish it up. More observant of you might notice there's some lineart visible here and there. That's because I begun painting on my sketch layer and didn't noticed this 'til it was too late. Well, *it happens.

(And yes, hashtags still suck)

I got lost in this picture for quite some time now... especially those mountains... this is somehow sooo soothing. I just love it.

Amazing.And you are aware that this piece was featured in a Fan Art Friday journal, correct? A very high honor!

Those mountains are amazing!

This is somehow both dramatic and overwhelming, yet cute and charming. The foreground is first sweet and small, emphasizing the innocent nature of the characters depicted. Then after looking at the background you get an impressive sense of a much larger, scarier world, with the dramatic mountains. Awesome art!

I'm glad you're enjoying my work and my little tomfoolery with the depth. No matter where you start, Youth can be either the beggining of a great adventure or a calm before the storm.

ooooh this is so cute and pretty

Now, that's what I most certainly love, a rarely found art which I thirst for - mixing majestic realism with cartoony elements of the original.
Amazing work, done by a professional hand.

It's still amazing to look back on how far you have come in all these years...

Freaking amazing. This piece makes me feel like I'm looking at an actual WORLD. I want to see what's down the road, I want to know what it looks like from that mountain top. Excellent work!

This is one of those piece where you have to zoom in to get the full effect. I lope how open the whole environment feels, like I can almost feel the space and depth in this.

simply amazing!

The seriously has depth and is full of life and warmth AND details! I especially like the flowers and the obstacle course and the way you set the characters and the fact you added 3 ponies in the background. They all look cheerful, playful and adorable! The perspective of the fence is impressive. 
  This reminds me of the peace of the countryside! :love:

love it. am in the process removing some foreground horse but beyond that this is the perfect subtle thing to be looking at every day.
dipsydew Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2015
there are no edges! no ledges! no shortcuts to perspective! just beautiful continuity from the foreground to the distant mountains far away...

so many kinds of tree!

Это безупречно! Подобные картины от брони я видел, но ваши чем то выделяется от всех остальных. Я люблю картины с хорошим фоном, но то, что вы так шикарно и детально так рисует фоны, у меня просто нету выбора какой-же из них лучше. Чтож тогда выберу по вкусу гдет 4 из всех.
1) In the Everfree Forest: За темный контраст и офигенныые цвета, которой так походят к чежленгам, а то что здесь Кризалис в роли Мамы (милота) так это вообще дает право на первое место.
2) Crystals of thy heart Честно, я не очень то люблю этот кристальный замок, но здесь из-за фона выглядит шикарно, видать без этого фона он и выглядит пустоватым. Если так судить, то если вместо замка поставить что нибудь другое, он все равно бы выглядел так-же не плохо. р второе место.
3) Once upon a time in Equestria: Свое предпочтение, всегда интересовал истории Эквестрии до M6 около 500 или ранее лет назад, но именно под такой фон он выглядит примечательным. третье место.
4) Story of the bench: Хочу там быть, хотя я там иногда бываю. р Где-то в Приморском крае есть такая местность.
Что мне не по вкусу, так это Селетия и ее одежда делающаяжопубольшею. The Golden Cage Всегда не понимал зачем в те временя люди так одевались, а на лошадях так тем более выглядит нелепее. 
Ну в общем у меня все, жаль что не самому автору рисунка комментирую, в ENG я уг, но тем не менее поделился. 
А еще я не люблю зимнюю ночь открытого неба.
И да, Твайликорн не нужен, как и прочие персонажи. р

This is breathtakingly beautiful! Makes me want to live in Equestria more than ever! :D

The buildings and landscape make me think of a little Swiss village.

Wow, this picture is so wonderful! :)
I think this is what it actually looks like in Equestria, unlike the show's flash animation. :)
And Applebloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle look just lovely here. :) *gives hugs and kisses to them*
Amon-san Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015
i agree :-)
imagine the show all done in a style like this - would be so awesome
CMC--Scootaloo Featured By Owner Edited Feb 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The style is already wonderful for flash animations. The water looks very realistic, for example.
But a style like this, reflecting how Equestria really looks, that would be even more wonderful! :)
Airtower Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Amazing! I love how many details you put in, like the hurdles in the school yard. :D
BB-K Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
