Finale art continues, I guess this would be #7.

Not sure if this is going to be the final one, I am noticing that the best parts I already kinda did haha :XD:
This one also kinda marks on the end of both the Finale and the Season.

I knew it was going to be a hefty one, but oh gosh... did I go with broad scope and everything, turning it in a landscape piece.
Because of that I approached this one slightly different than all the previous Finale pieces. A lot of focus on the environment, then I had to tackle that castle... gosh Architecture sometimes just isn't my strong point :P

Oh well, I do kinda like how the hills turned out, not perfect but good enough. Them houses though.

Anyhow, What y'all think of the new Twilight Shack? It shall be interesting to see this place in the next season.

Approx Time: 12

I really love the lighting like how the the shining of the castle really stands out to me the most. Then the detail on the castle is amazing but I think the background and the landscape is a little bland because all I see are are some hills around 20 houses but far apart or close together and the only reason this bothers me is that this is in the middle of Ponyville. If it was done to make the castle stand out more it worked I really focus on the castle more than anything else. I hope this critique is good and helps.
What do you think?

Still can't get over how out of place that thing is in pony vill. Honest had the given it earthy tones and bade the tree a real tree I feel like i would like it much better it would be more like the redux of the home twilight lost.
This image of it is gorgeous though.

Now all this castle needs are some auto turrets and this baby will defeat any foal who dares disturb Twilight in her studies (well, except her best friends, of course)

I think this new castle will be expanded upon during season 5 of "FiM."

The massive size of the castle compared to the rest of Ponyville amuses me.

Gorgeous work.

Perhaps it's the contrasting color scheme to the "castle"'s surroundings, but I've just not entirely warmed up to the design yet....

Maybe if we see it get some foliage growth along the roots in season 5....

It'll be interesting to see how it'll go through the next season. The memories of Golden Oak library still overshadows the new castle a bit, so it still has to sink in a bit for me that there will be a new place.

Maybe some life around the base of it would be nice indeed. Or a new beehive! Oh gosh... the poor bees.
