Into The Depths Cover by SilFoe Into The Depths Cover by SilFoe
Cover commission for Pen Stroke's "Into the Depths" without the title text. [link]

This was hella fun to do. And look! I CAN do backgrounds.

PS CS5, I have no clue how many hours...

Edit: Holy crap... how did neither me nor Pen Stroke notice the lack of wings?!? Fixed...

Ya know, with so many horror and gore stories these days (grimdark for the youngins), I'm beginning to understand why the Princesses put about a zillion magically-reinforced quantum barriers between Earth and Equestria.

It seems like there's a race to see who can slaughter ponies in the most horrible way possible.

Why would the leaders of an innocent race of magical ponies want to let in creatures with such darkness in their minds?

Really, I do always ask myself, "What would they think if they saw what we write about them." And the answer is they'd barricade themselves away from us instantly and train every cosmic weapon they could conjure at us just in case we take one step closer than is comfortable.

Humans are insane creatures. ;3

Wonderful! I love how the darkness merges with her mane. Oh and the ruins in the background are great too, but wouldn't the light on the broken tower be seen on that wall too?

For some reason, this reminds me of "The Return of Tambelon".

Yes, since I got into FiM, I've been inspired to seek the roots of the show itself. This included a non-guided tour through G1.

If you push the girly pandering, often see-through morals and/or plots, and those God-aweful sea ponies and their sanity-shattering singing off to the side --there's a LOT of it-- it's actually not so bad. I dare say it had the glimmer of potential on occasion.

But that was the 80s. Back when you weren't allowed to be cool and a girl at the same time.

I don't really read fanfiction, but I assume lack of wings somehow explained. Don't care how, but... mind to do a second, "neutral" version with wings? :3 That would be awesome.

Anyway, I do so love the texturish look you gave to environment. Lovely. Feels realistic.
