Once upon a time in Equestria by Devinian Once upon a time in Equestria by Devinian
Yup! Pre-Canterlot Equestria? Thats my concept of The Ancient castle of the Royal sisters or whatever it was called :D
This idea hit me when I was re-watching FiM pilot for no parent reason whatsoever. I'm guessing Everfree forest wasn't that big back then or the ruins were actually on the other side of it. It was just my silly guessing. I will be very unhappy if they show this castle fully intact in season 4.
Lots of happy colours in this one. Even my *.psd file was actually named colorfulland!

"That's my concept of The Ancient castle of the Royal sisters or whatever it was called"

Well, we can actually call it like that, since it was never called anyhow special. Every time it was mentioned, it was just called "an Old Royal Castle" :P :)
And it was literally EVERY time ;)

As someone who follows your work I thought I should bring your attention to this - sheadovas.itch.io/shipping-is-…

The games title screen uses your picture above.

One thing to note, the itch.io page links to www.youtube.com/watch?v=baWah4… on the channel of someone with a Polish name, this further links to what appears to be an old Polish blog. I also notice from DA that you say you're resident in Dębica.

So if you're the same guy, then sorry to take up your time, but if not, I just thought you should know your work is being used without credit.

Gorgeous artwork and concept ^^ Going for pre-G4 ponies such as Surprise and Firefly was such a cool idea too! :D
Wow that castle... o.o The architecture is magnificent! I'm interested, by which culture, era or country was the design of this catle inspired from, if any?

I just went through most of your painting such as this one and I must say, these are just ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I love how you portray the magnitude of Equestria with the mountains in the background. I didnt realize till now that I had quite a few of your painting in my collection. for future reference, if I may ask, do you take commissions?

I love this! You should do one with Luna in the bat pony civilisation. Also, am i the only one to have noticed the time travelling Docter Whooves and Derpy? And is that Screwball? I can't be sure...

Also, love that Celestia, Firefly and Surprise!

Do my eyes spy some of the G1 My Little Pony Characters ( at least Firefly and Surprise). This is a truly amazing picture and very detailed as well. The clouds look like sheep's wool or cotton to me.

I completely forgot about the Royal Sisters castle and was convinced that it's Canterlot somehow. Therefore my first thought was "the castle was the first, then they built the mountain". Genius.
