This is my entry for BronyCAN :iconmlpfriendshipismagic: contest about a changeling invasion to a Canada Landmark but this time with Queen Volucris leading it. Needless to say, I choose CN Tower.
This took me a lot of time to get it as I wanted and as it should be! The perspective of a lot of things and the sizes were quite difficult to achieve. Ok, I know, I might overdone it with the size of the Tower but hell you gotta admit it looks epic... or at least badass. The original sketch I thought for this was just a page long, then I started to enlarge it... and enlarge it once more and the final sketch was like 5 pages long! I originally didn't plan the sketch nor the digital image to be this big! 
This probably broke my record for the most time dedicated on a single image.
The original sketch for this was a mess; I had to edit it a lot to make it look right, the tower in general was all blended, some parts were to big, the biggest part of the tower was in bad perspective and was also too big, Volucris' legs were done wrong, Snow Flare's (The red-head pony) neck was too long and I also added a lot of things I didn't originally take in consideration so this is a very mixed media artwork, enjoy it and I hope you all like it, I worked very hard on it!

Maybe you would have preferred to see more canon characters to be present in the picture but they weren't allowed, not even Chrysalis! So, remember this is a contest and it had rules.
I hope I win... wish me luck! If I win, I get amazing prizes but the best one will be a plushie of one of the mane six from :iconadamlhumphreys: !


This image was entirely done traditionally in pencil #2 and digitally in PsCS4 in about 40 hours of work (Yes, I'm that slow).

The sea was created with the help of photos taken by me.

Nicely done with the 3D perspective. Also the shadowing is top notch :)
