This is a perfect example on why I hate doing backgrounds, it makes me question the condition of my eyes. The stairs are crooked, and some of the back wall. Despite using a ruler, measuring 50 times and everything else, they still came out crooked. Ether I'm really that pathetic, or my eyes are really as derp'd as I claim them to be.
But oh well, small detail in the scheme of things. Concidering this is the fifth
draft I did of this one
picture, I'm just glad that I am finished.
Anyway, the main reason for drawing this was Chrysalis. The first "draft" was just a stand alone portrait, but I felt like that wasn't doing her much justice, and wanted to add defeated Celestia. Of course I had to redraw it to fit but even with that I wanted to do more, and eventually this is what I got. In comparison to the portrait I wound up with much more detail than I originally sketched and well, I'm happy with the overall detail at least.
