For the Starstruck Project




:iconarctic-sekai: & :iconvest: & :iconcurran:

Character by *curran
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (c) Hasbro



Original character vector - [link]
By *Arctic-Sekai

Background and environment by `vest

So after a bit of discussion, *curran and I decided that we needed just one more piece of artwork to complement Starstruck with. The first couple chapters were received quite warmly, even getting a feature very early on in its life cycle.

But now that it has been received and has an established base of readers wanting more content, our rate of production on Starstruck will be ramping up.

This is the header image that will be used for chapter 3, which is going up tonight. It's an image of protagonist Devon Bookmark getting that last errant ray of sunlight before commencing his eventful and psychologically draining adventure deep into the trap-laden corridors of gnarled death beneath the Canterlot Archives.

Much as you'd expect from a story tagged "adventure" and "romance!"

If you're the kind of person who has any curiosity at all over My Little Pony fanfiction, and apparently there's a ton of you (much to my delighted surprise) head on over and READ IT HERE!

Love the colours and the use of light! And the way you've caught the detail in the fence and snow is pretty cool too :)

Wait, where is this? The writing on the signs look like Crystal Empire glyphs.

Thanks.

This was drawn well before today's episode, and I had no foreknowledge of any elements of the Crystal Empire. So any similarities are coincidental. This scene is actually in the back alleyways of Canterlot nearby the Canterlot Archive. Worth noting, the fanfic it's based on was started even before the "Just In Time" episode which introduced the Canterlot Archive, and while it's no surprise they wrote one in, their rendition of it is far different than the one we had.

Arctic Sekai has an image in her gallery timestamped before that episode which has the interior of our Archive in it, just in case people think we're depicting an inaccurate version of the structure. They're still right; the depiction is inaccurate. But when we came up with it, the very existence of the Archive was not yet canon.

I gushed at you personally, I will gush again. Because I love this. I love the sense of "winter" in this. It isn't some raging blizzard, but it is clearly cold. The atmosphere is just lovely.
