Its finally done!

This drawing has really taken me forever to finish...
Ruff guesses places the time i spend on this one drawing at the heights of 60-70 hours spread out over 10 days.

I really need to get better at not getting down in the details just trowing hours at the drawings, altho it does give good results i think.
And this drawing has been the biggest project iv done so far, and i think it turned out better than i could ever hope for with my modest skills.

Really did love the season finally all in all, it came with some great song and awesome villain designs :D
And while you could practically feel some director meddeling in the episode (the intense overplay of the royal wedding in its self, and Cadance should have really been an unicorn) i still found it to be really enjoyable.

And Chrysalis....
Shes just soooo much fun to draw with her hair and design, altho it took a looong while to get right :3

Really love how the flames came out and the feel of the piece :3
Did a lot of testing around with the setup and design, adding in more than half of the content as i went and came up with ideas with some helpful feedback from friends!

You can find a clen vertion of the background i drew here: [link]

Special thanks to Xatiav:iconxatiav: and Coffeegrunt:iconcoffeegrunt:
Who gave some especially helpful feedback as i was working with this piece.

Well hope you all will like it, and anyone who wanna give a Critique is free to :3

Now if you excuse me i will have to go do something other than the drawing iv been obsessing over for days :D

A great piece of work about my two favorite chapters of all the series and the song this day is the second only being suprass by celestias balad but that moment that they are singing the song you can feel Candance despair and Chrysalis evil and you capture the essence of those two chapters in this masterpiece thanks a million

Am I being sadistic if I'm thinking Shining Armour's stare is hillarious? :rofl:
