Plant ponies!

This started as a random 30min character design for fun from an idea I got in AssasinMonkey's stream one night long time ago, I really recommend to take a peek and chat around his frequent streams, they're awesome. This one was so fun I wanted to get back to it, and finally did. I still wanted to keep it kind of rough and speedpainty, which actually got me greater results than I expected.. Total time ended up being around 3-4 hours.

I ended up going through a whole bunch of stories behind the picture, ranging from the source of Everfree's magic to the planters of tree of harmony and whatnot.

It's something different, it was fun as hell to do.

Meanwhile, I've just given up with episodes for a while. I didn't find time to relax and watch episodes 10, 11 or 12 due to military, and then I just decided to keep stacking everything up for a marathon until I have a longer holiday once again.

That's amazing. And if i did alreade made nine of them, this pice of art would be one of my inspiration souces. After all, it's still useful. They're not painted yet. So why not a bit like those.

The story behind my version of timber ponies is simple: i was searching for a replacement for those Manikins. Timber wolfes are too aggressive, so it turned to Manekins.

Nice artwork in my humble opinion. I like the background the most. Somehow the at ancient on the right reminds me of Sweetie Belle. :)
