EqD ATG II - Day 10 - A Pony Making a Decision by muffinshire EqD ATG II - Day 10 - A Pony Making a Decision by muffinshire
My entry for day 10 of Equestria Daily's Artist Training Grounds. The brief was "draw a pony making a decision". I imagined Twilight's first trip to a public library, and how she might face having to pick just a few books to borrow.

I attempted to emulate the style of the show's backgrounds for this piece. I've always admired the gorgeous background art in the show, and this really made me appreciate the level of detail they put in. I think I've probably been a bit too strict with sticking to shape and perspective, where the show itself tends to be looser and freer with the geometry. I intend to try and develop a freer style with backgrounds in future pieces.

Update: This has joined several of my previous ATG pieces in being included in one of Equestria Daily's Drawfriend posts (#531 this time), thanks to someone else's submission.

Is the librarian supposed to be somepony in particular? (I know the comics have a librarian character that used be a writer and a friend of Celestia.)

No, I just made her up on-the-fly. For these one-off background ponies I don't usually bother with character designs and just draw what suits the scene.

Cute but what kinda library has a limit on books you can borrow? D8

All libraries I've been to let you borrow as many as you like.

But still very cute.
