Canterlot by Balthasar999 Canterlot by Balthasar999
EDIT: Now on EQD! Neato - Thanks, ponies!
Illustration of Canterlot for an upcoming chapter of a ponyfic I'm writing: www.fimfiction.net/story/76626…

Didn't really plan this out and just started painting... There are a few things that are wonky but I don't care.

People never make the city look big enough, I think. Doesn't it have a goddamn hedge maze? And a racetrack?

Supposedly Canterlot is based on Minas Tirith, but it always makes me think of another high-altitude magic castle: www.youtube.com/watch/?v=c4oLM…

...I am in awe at how much detail you manage to show ( and you even added  the pony version of Mt. Rushmore).

Thanks!  I figured given the stained glass in the castle that ponies were into hagiographic imagery.

Canterlot feels small in the show. Thank you for this.

Also, you should make Cloudsdale and other cities.

Haha, I actually started one a while ago with Cloudsdale in the background—I should totally get back to work on that...

Wow, thanks!  Pretty sure you'll get tired of me before too long, what with my sleep-hammering and old Russian lady smell.
