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?

"But be careful, there's some sexy barnyard stuff in those books that is NOT for everyone; a pony could get in a lot of trouble. If you do decide to check it out you need to make sure you hide your identity thoroughly. You may need to burn your finger prints before touching those books. I'm telling you, you've gotta be a freaking ghost when you're checking this stuff out. If you think you're being too cautious, you're not. They will take you to jail."
