The idea originally came after watching Princess Mononoke and gawking at the amazing art that was produced for it.
There is no better place to kick back and read a good book than under an magical tree... seriously try it!
Took way too long to paint this, re did the background more than 10 times almost leading to a complete drop of this one.
But I got some awesome help from AssasinMonkey
during his frequent streams and I was back on it!
Yeah I don't paint forests very much as you can tell XD going to have to mend that!
Since I'm getting close to the official date of it being 1 year since I fully painted my first pony I have cut out and cropped the first painting into a piece of it's own which can be found below.
I'd love to hear what you think about it!
(a few tweaks to the painting will be finished later)
