Wonderment by Icaron Wonderment by Icaron
I needed some practice with perspective and size, plus I really wanted to do my own rendition of the Royal Canterlot Library, and here it is.

Definitely Full-View this
All that detail deserves it. *cradles aching hand*

In terms of architecture, I took inspiration from two of the world's most iconic and awe-inspiring libraries; The Trinity College Old Library in Dublin, and the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., and then placed it all in an Equestrian setting.

I daresay though, that the whole thing ended up looking rather Byzantine in appearance, which was entirely unintentional. I was going for more of the Library of Congress's Romanesque feel, but what the hay, it works. XD

Ten hours or so, Illustrator CS4


Should I change this so she's a filly? I had someone say it would look better that way, not sure. What do ya'll think?
