Remnants of a Dead World by DarkFlame75 Remnants of a Dead World by DarkFlame75
Books are like windows into the past. Diaries are like windows into the soul of the author. They allow us to experience a different life through another pony's eyes.

Remade:




THIS VERSION IS BETTER





Character from The End of Ponies by short skirts and explosions. [link]



So here it is.

This is the big one.
I've been working on this for literally a whole month now. It's finally done. This is easily my best piece yet. It's actually for the 6th Bi Weekly on r/MLPDrawingSchool. I'm not completely satisfied with it, but it's good enough now. I need to get this one out there.

And FYI if you read the fic, this is mostly accurate. I got a floorplan from short skirts himself. I removed the stairwell and I made the book locker have a glass door. Otherwise, it's accurate.

I'll take crit, but keep in mind this piece is done.

Finally some Art about a wonderful graphical masterpiece.

End Of Ponies needs more fun art.
Glad you are one to support this idea ^^
Great perspective!

Yeah! I'm hoping to get back into making more EoP fan art. Probably once short skirts starts writing it again (Pretty soon hopefully!)

Looks like Celestia's diary. A bit more thin than I pictured it.

Honestly, someone that's as old as her ought to have a multi-volume diary. I don't know how a single volume can hold 1000+ years of entries.

I personally thought of it as just the most recent volume of it.

Is this based of a fanfic? Because if it is, I want to read it.
Great pic by the way.

Indeed it is. I believe the link is in the description.

Either way, the story is End of Ponies by short skirts and explosions. [link]

It's an amazing fic, despite the incredible length.

Oh derrrrp, I should read descriptions more often...
It does not bother me the lenght... as long as the story is good, I can read everything. Thanks, anyway.
Oh by the way, it looks like the pony has cancer, or some other disease. I hope it's not the case =( But your art is impressive anyways.
Good day.

No it's not that. She uses all of her hair for more practical uses. She just never lets it grow back until a bit into the story.

Her staring into the air makes her look like such a deep thinker, full of emotion.

You have done an excellent job at recreating the harmony from a simple doodle and i love the colours. I can almost feel her loneliness :(

Its so beautiful... :iconmanlytearsplz: HA! I totally pictured the hammock to be on the right side of the 'Harmony' as well.
Now to criticize: her eyes, I believe, are meant to be scarlet. Her coat is indeed brown rather than orange since she looses her colors after the Cataclysm (which also explains why her eyes are scarlet). Aaaaand I think the book should be leaning a bit to make it seem more like its resting on her hammock.
Love how you made the wasteland look through the window. Her gun also looks awesome, although I can't remember if skirts gave any details on how her gun looks like. Only know it has 2 levers to reload it and such. And a stock.
Man, I wanna say more on how freakin' awesome this is but now I'm getting lazy.

Actually, I got a floor plan for the Harmony from short skirts himself. He's been following me while I made this. He hasn't said anything about the colors.

The only ways that I really deviated from his idea of the Harmony are the book locker (It shouldn't be glass) and the fact that there should be a stairwell between the camera and cockpit. Those things made the picture lose quality though.
