Country pony visits big city by cmaggot Country pony visits big city by cmaggot
Busy, noisy and a little bit intimidating.

Edit: Wow!! I've gotten so many incredibly kind and encouraging comments on this picture. I will try reply to as many as possible but in the mean time I just want to say thank you to everyone for taking the time to leave a comment. It really makes my day time and again. I love you all. :)

Incredible! Love the use of colours here and the uniform "theme" the palette creates. The character in focus contrasts nicely with the rest by using such strong greens.

Canterlot look so beautiful. And yet we still not have an MMO about Equestria universe (Legend of Equestria is not counted).

I like how the perspective is as if I'm right there looking up at the building myself!  Cool!

Commented on this before, but it crossed my dashboard again...Still one of my favorite pony pieces. So much fanart of the series either is all happy-go-lucky, or if it goes into uncertainty/loneliness it goes off the psycho deepend. But this is a hesitation and alone-ness that anyone can identify with...Coming to a new place, wondering whether there is a place for you...If it will be a place you want to call home, or a place you will never feel comfortable in.

Good GRAVY.  The perspective and use of colors impresses the heck out of me on this.

Feels like concept art for a movie or something.

This is so well done and beautiful! Your layout really gets across what Fritter is feeling! The small little detail of her dirty hooves and then the biiig tall royal buildings is just perfect. Seriously, one of my favorite pictures!

Every now and then a piece comes out just right.  Either through a total fluke or a focused decision to do better, some works just stand above the rest.

Your entire gallery is appealing, and I truly envy your landscapes.

However this one is on another level.  I'm sure there are others who could explain why, much better than I can.

A bit of a fluke I think. Originaly it was just gonna be a quick random picture of Canterlot, but it turned out much better than I hoped. Happy you like it. :)

Everyone gets nervous on their first day. No matter where it is! It doesn't matter if it's in a Major city, the countryside, or even school!! Do your best and make it big!!

I am imagining a musical number about this character visiting the city and being all 'everything is different than where I've been before' and whatnot.

It's pretty good.

Are you kidding me. You put all other Pony artists to shame. Great lighting, focus and colors. I love how all non-important ponies are silhouettes.
