Concept illustration for behind Canterlots peak i just always have imagined that there would be small valleys situated in between steep cliffs and mountains in Equestria. prefect places for princesses to study ;) =D

i explored methods of drawing rocks and mountains which i personally have found a challenge in my digital art :doh:. I also looked at drawing from a new perceptive to where the foreground foliage is burled out as if it were a camera shot. 

check my tumblr for the WIP i will have of this piece ;). and on DA when i finally get around to doing that le sigh. :roll:

This one is definitely a winner Winner. The depth magnificently makes the cliff tower over Twilight and the valley she is in.

For princesses to study? Not in my mind! More like a perfect place for an insidious army to lay in wait, or for a thrilling pegasus chase.

This is why we love Equestria, and the artists who bring it to life.

Canterlot is a perfect example of a well-planned capital. I do wish mankind follows the same paths as ponykind. But then again, we humans don't have magic powers (nor the technology at least) to keep this thing hanging up like that.

Stunning, and definitely a big win ! I didn't even notice Twilight at first, nor did I recognize Canterlot, to be honest. What brought me here was the awesome perspective shot, and the great use of colors. Good job on this one, jowy ;)

Really impressive! What am I saying? It is alluring :la: Great pic. I particularly like the camera angle; it is perfect for this picture. The lighting and shading are pretty amazing too.

Niiiice

I've always had the idea that there's mostly just thick woods behind, I'd love to actually see what's behind the mountain...
