Out of the Ashes, a New Story To Be Told by Huussii Out of the Ashes, a New Story To Be Told by Huussii
Had this rough idea for quite a while but didn't know how would I exactly present it. I did want to focus on trying to bring the scale of destruction into another light. Afterall that tree was pretty damn huge and old when you construct it by looking at the interiors. It had to be a significant loss for everyone, simply because of its age and place in history. Not to mention that amount of books that were certainly destroyed.

Of course, realistically a totally leveled tree wouldn't sprout again right in the middle of the trunk, but I took a little bit of freedom so it'd make sense in both artistic side and story viewpoint. I like to think that one day the old overgrown hollow remains of the golden oak would become one with the grown sprout, effectively renewing the tree in its glory.

I kind of regret not putting Spike in there. I just forgot about him after I threw away the idea of having the whole mane six gazing at the sproutling around Twilight.

(EDIT): There's a strange black line around the bottom appearing occasionally.. It's something on Deviantart's side, not being present in the full res picture. The whole site has been laggy as hell recently.

The biggest wham of the destruction of the library was just a few episodes earlier Twilight couldn't sell any of her books for sentimental reasons.

As horrific as the fact that Twilight lost her home, it hits me even harder because it was a library as well! That's twice as terrible!

Have I ever told you that you're one of the best MLP ilustrators around here? No? well, I believe you are among the greatest ilustrators of MLP (and non-MLP too!) that cohabitate here on DA. You have a talent for this and I hope you get compensation for your work, if not on money, at least on recognition.
