Forgotten by SmellsLikeBeer Forgotten by SmellsLikeBeer
So this one was a commission for :iconolavsson: (I hope you like it, Olavsson!) It was really nice working with this. With someone else's ideas. A fresh change you know.

I don't usually do commissions, but I'm still quite broke and need the money, gotta earn it the way or other.

I still had some issues with that goddamn ink. Like someone had mixed too much water in it. But not me, I never mix too much water in my ink. Damn rats.. Anyway, it was so watery that I almost fucked up with the finest details. Ended up quite nicely after all. I was again so much into cross-hatching that I forgot to hide any kind of little messages in the drawing. Hell, I even forgot the signature.

It's done in Indian ink and watercolors.
I made this little step-by-step of this drawing, so if you're interested in seeing it, it's here [link] It only has the main steps and it's really simple and stuff.

You know, quite often I really doubt myself seriously. Like, if I really should just quit drawing. And stuff like that. But when reading your comments I stop doubting. Sorry, but I just don't know what else to say, I can't articulate more clearly. But thanks (:

I thought it would be cool if they lived among the remains of human civilization. A 'Life After People' type situation. Every now and then, you have that episode where they wander through the remains of a human city, and Twilight muses what the humans were like, and goes into nerd mode over their libraries and all the books.

The old shelves of the abandoned library creaked and groaned as the two wandering intruders walked down its aisles, threatening to break under the strain of years of neglect and the weight of the books on them.

(Short fanfic for the hell of it)

“Twilight,” Spike whimpered as he stuck close to the violet unicorn fearfully, “I-I don’t think we should be here…”

“We have to keep going, Spike!” Twilight replied as her eyes wandered over the vast amount of books, both on the shelves and laying neglected on the floor. “The Princess said the book we need is in this place. We just need to keep looking.”

Before she could go on, her hoof struck the headless bust of a strange creature that lay broken on the ground beside a pedestal. “What in the world?”

I do believe that this is one of the more interesting pictures I've seen, an abandoned library contrasts so well with Twilight.

Excellent job, it is a wonderful picture to look at, especially all the detail of the library.

Now Twilight just needs to free the humans and she can get first-hand information on our culture and civilizations!
