Coloured version of this: [link] I'm not sure it was a good idea at all (I mean colouring), however, it's been done, and I can say for sure that I definitely had some fun doing it. I hope you will like it (:

The drawing was inspired by this series of pictures: [link] [link] [link] , and is referring to an actual courtyard I used to live near to.

I wanted to put some gentle shades upon Twilight's whites, but the scanner was of an opposite opinion, so those shades are now just dirty pixels.

Used: a metro ticket, about thirty cinnamon cookies, three glasses of tea and two ones of coffee, some Indian ink and watercolours, and a tiny postprocessing in Photoshop to make it look more like the original.

Heavier version with lesser compression: [link]
Unprocessed scan: [link]

Twilight Sparkle character belongs to Hasbro.

Gifted.

Сразу, как увидел на ED этот рисунок, понял, что художник из бывшего СССР, и не ошибся. Эти депрессивные дворики ни с чем не перепутаешь.

Граждан из бывшего СССР даже по лицу в толпе иностранцев можно узнать |: Хотя я всё же привык считать такие дворики петербургским эксклюзивом ^^

Really great! Reminds me a lot of smellslikebeer's works, with the color contrast and whatnot.

Since it was intended to look SmellsLikeBeer-like, it's a great compliment, thank you (:

No problem! It's really damn unfortunate what happened to him though... :(

Woah, it looks like she went into a black and white world or something! Great job!

Well, that look was actually my goal. I'm happy to read I have reached it (:

I feel like a sort of fanfic could be written about that or something. :)

Это правильно, тут холодно и сыро :(

А на первом этаже вообще шикарно. Как сейчас помню: прямое солнце только в конце июня, только в районе полудня, только в одной комнате, только на подоконнике. Летом хожу по квартире в кофте, а весной пахнет сыростью (: Хотя нет, скорее ):

В Озерки. Там, конечно, свои косяки есть, но всё же как-то попрельстивее ^__^ А ты в центре живёшь?
