Reupload since dA was crapping out and breaking the image
It should be working now.

This is (more) fan art for the fantastic fan fiction Background Pony. [link] by Short Skirts and Explosions.

For a better effect, listen to Belgerum's rendition of Twilight's Requiem while viewing. [link]

As far as I'm aware, the only other person to attempt to draw this is ~reformational. [link]

I've been working on this one for a while now. I've been asked to draw it for a while and I decided I would a few weeks ago. Since then, I've been planning and studying perspective to get it right. I'm overall satisfied with how it's come along, but there are certainly some specific things I'd change.

A (very) brief explanation for the uninitiated: This is the Unsung Realm. It's a piece of chaotic space that was turned into a prison for her. It's a place where the Unsung go. A final resting place. If you want to know more, go read the fic. It's long but worth every word.

Completion Time: Way too long

seeing fanart of this scene, I have been wondering: that sphere, is it described the first she goes to the unsung realm, or does it show up later?

It was there the whole time, I'm pretty sure. It was supposed to be, either way.

When you are being smashed against rusty platforms by icy waves and clawed at by zombie ponies, it's easy to miss objects floating in the distant sky. :)

Gosh, I just am in love with the stuff you make for this fanfic... I always imagined the Unsung Realm to be a lot more chaotic, filled with rain, and ice, based on how it was described... but I find this rendition fantastic as well. I am in love withe the chains! I love how theyt kind of just... fade in the distance. The effect and the perspective are both amazing. And I love the sphere in the middle! YouŽll have to reming me what part of the fanfic it appears in, though. :/

Anyway, this is fantastic. You make me love the fanfic even more. Oh, and this goes to favorites, too.

Have you read to the latest chapter in the fic yet? You might not know what the sphere is yet if you haven't gotten pretty far (I can't recall when it's introduced)

I pictured it very chaotic as well, but in a different way. I ended up talking with the author some about it and he guided me in the design. It came out a lot better than I had been imagining because of that.
