Rainbow in the Dark by XeviousGreenII Rainbow in the Dark by XeviousGreenII
Needless to say, nopony in Ponyville was sleeping at that very moment.

Black paper/cardboard has its problems when it comes to scanning, but I'm pretty happy how this came out.

Here's how the sketch looked like:

Very good work as always on the coloring, surprised you managed to make it look this dark with just pencils and canyons

Thanks! The paper was black, so in fact the real struggle was to make it less dark.

I bet Dash is just trying to help Luna liven up the night.

Never tried black paper myself. That's why I do so appreciate its beauty, especially when it's created by the capable hands of someone skilled with it. Love the rainbow trail through out the entire scene. It helps to put the landscape and the clouds into perspective.

Edit:
I just noticed the lights off in the distance to the right on my second viewing. A nice little extra detail. Another village maybe, not far from Ponyville?

Okay, thanks! I don't remember what the official maps tell, but I though there might as well be some other villages or towns within a travelling distance from Canterlot, as big cities tend to have.

Well, the official maps are minimalistic anyhow. They downplay the scale and mostly point to the biggest locations, so I appreciate when we see pictures like these, where Equestria is shown in its expansive magnificence.

nice, cardboard has its advantages and it's disadvantages, never tried scanning it though.

Thanks, I guess it's good as long as you don't mind some fuzziness in the dark parts.

If I ever find the cardboard drawing that I did a while back and has since gotten lost in the shuffle of stuff (I know it's around somewhere, just a matter of the exact where that's the issue) I'll try scan it in and see what it looks like.

Thanks! The good thing about black paper is that the darkest shadows are there already when you start.
