I know its no where near winter but here in good old England the weather can change dramatically in just one day or that’s how it has felt the last few weeks. :P :giggle:

Even though the weather would be a reasonable subject that inspired this little piece it was actually inspired by the lack of background characters in FIM I have done :doh:. Decided to do an interesting Zecora illustration taking her out of her comfort zone and giving her a whole new Everfree to explore and admire.

Winter in the Everfree forest would be cool to see.

Took 4 hours to paint :phew:

Check out my FIM title card project [link]

Until next deviation LATERS :peace:

Painted in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom tablet

Reminds me of the Enya song
"White Is In The Winter Night" for some reason"

There really need to be more Zecora centered episodes.

Winter in Everfree? That must be a first in all the pictures we've seen!

I read the title in her voice. :P Is that bad?

Wow, that's quite lovely. :) The way she's looking around there, with that expression of surprise and wonder, I'm almost thinking this must be the first time Zecora saw snow with her own eyes, and touched it with her own hooves.

Love the concept for this. We don't know too much about the Everfree Forest and seeing it in the winter would be quite the treat. Good thing you've got it covered! Wonderful work on the colors. The whole piece is gorgeous!

My guess is that Zecora has a plan for anything Everfree can throw at her. An errant snowball, however, could require some on the spot improvisation.

Great job at making Zecora stand out against the background. It could be easy to lose black and white in black and white.

I've never seen Zecora in a winter environment before. Coincidentally, my friend was just working on something quite similar, even in terms of composition. And then this pops up. At least I'll be able to say neither of you stole it from each other, as she began it earlier.
I do like all the various shades of the snow and the icicles on the trees and the leafless foliage below. And the lines of Zecora's body and hooves aligne beautifully with each other and with her cloak. So pretty. Well done!

:Phew: That’s a relief last thing i want is to annoy another pony =D

I look forward to seeing your friend’s interpretation of this concept when its finished ;)

It's her first attempt at a landscape/background-heavy piece. Unfortunately, she's fallen ill and is very unwell at the moment, so she can't even log on, much less work on the piece. I hope she'll be able to finish it once she's feeling good again.
