I've been playing a lot of Assassin's Creed: Origins lately, and I really loved the design of the Greek and Egyptian temples in the game.
So I thought about what ancient Equestrian architecture would be like and did a few skeches based on the designs in the game. These are not good enough to count as "deviations" but I think some of these have potential to be further developed.
Sooooo ... I'm just wondering which one looks better to you? (I like No.3 the most but it's not exactly meant to be a temple)
I am sharing some books and web resources that really helped my self-learning of art, some specifically for ponies. I hope you may find them useful.
1. (Book) Drawing on the right side of the brain by Betty Edwards
Take a look at this book if you think you can't draw, you'll most likely prove yourself wrong. Good for the complete beginner, though the author tend to ramble somewhat.
2. (Web) How to draw ponies panel - Equestria LA 2012 The video that got me started, there's a lot of useful information for getting started in MLP fanart.
2. (Web) MLP Vector Club Show-accurate vectors, excellent references for you to copy and
