A Canterlot View - Sunset behind the Unicorn Range by JackJacko-Eponymous A Canterlot View - Sunset behind the Unicorn Range by JackJacko-Eponymous
This is a commission I made for ~Starwarsfan24.
I'm not sure what this is for, but I hope you'll enjoy it all the same! I'll update the description should I get any further info.

P.S. Yes, I had absolutely no ideas for the title.

Hello, is it acceptable if I use this as cover art for my story Back to Where We Were? I linked it so you get credit, and if you have a problem, I'll change it.

Dude, this is beautiful, I was looking around for an image of a sunset viewed from Canterlot as inspiration for a fic I am writing, and this is just perfect.
I love how you took the time to build up the atmosphere in the lighting, and the guards facial expression and posture are just perfect.

Personally I wouldn't have any problems with it, but alas this work is a commission for which I've been paid for, and thus property of ~Starwarsfan24, who commissioned it. You should contact him and ask :meow:

:iconraritydramaplz: "So... beautiful... Why do you torture me so?!"

I love the royal guard here. "Wow. Sometimes I forget how beautiful and amazing this place is."

And it really is. Much as I love grandiose portraits of impossibly large fantasy cities, I adore artists who actually tackle medieval cities with an eye for realism. The guard's vantage point is realistic since it gives him a pegasi's eye-view of the town below, letting him (and us) take in the lay-out in all it's exquisite detail.

Shot's from outdoors looking outside the city are rare it seems, and the show is a bit more stylized with the city.
I like this picture it really makes the place seem more plausable.
