Griffon Pass



We know theres going to be more world building in season 5 ,which I am really intrigued about :). so why not show off one of the areas i imagine in my interpretation of the MLP universe Griffon pass the gate way to the griffon kingdom. 

This scene with Rarity interacting with griffins played in my head when I was laying down the background of the environment.I like to imagine that Rarity would not be afraid to wonder off to far corners of Equestria to exchange and meet with her many clients.   

I also opted for a more colder atmosphere with the blueish sunlight hitting the far off mountains. 

I really enjoy giving epicness and life to my pony illustrations.I mean I like doing it for all my work involving back grounds but pony art is something very special. :thumbsup: :love: 

Check out my FIM title card project… I will have a new card done soon :roll:

Until next deviation LATERS Bronies :peace:

This is an incredible picture.
The Griffon pass itself looks very mood filled with the fog and snowy mountains, and since you see the forest that looks like it's several kilometers from the village, you get a small understanding of how big the pass really is. The dragon walking up the mountain is also a nice touch.

The village also looks incredible, with grass growing in the road, and roofs made out of straw. That almost all of the citizens are griffons also is very nice, and I absolutely love the griffon blacksmith in the background. Even though the village really sets the mood, I think only the pass could make a really good image.

I find it really hard to find something bad to say about. The pass itself is impossible to find something bad about, but the colorful baker is kinda ruining the mood.

Griffon pass is exactly how I imagine a fantasy village, and I would love to buy a print of this picture.
