I'm jumping on the Fallout Equestria 2 train!
Also, sorry if I had you excited. There is no Fallout Equestria 2 announced, only fanart of my own headcanon and ideas.
I had a ton of inspiration from Piecee01's FO:E 2 art like this one [link]
and also from a looping soundtrack of Django: Unchained which stopped at the count of 101 repeats during the longest night of drawing. (Took about 3 days from sketch to upload) O_o I still can't enough of it. The awesomeness is just too much.
Anyway, as you can see I made a proper background for once. I figured backgrounds are my next big step in becoming a better artist and amazingly, it didn't turn out as horribly as I thought it would. Shading has also been improved, but maybe not by much. The setting isn't really giving me any great lightning opportunities so it will have to wait for another day.
Just imagine the possibilities and potential of a second novel! Even though there is both sunshine and rainbows, there is a huge amount of things that is left undone and crisises that could arise any moment. And in such a magical land as Equestria and the land around it, who can really say that the SPP is truly protected? In my head ideas are fighting, but the top of them all is a dark one. One were someone, somehow (maybe with the black book?) manages to literally split or even destroy the soul protecting the SPP, causing it to become vulnerable. The remnants of the enclave takes the chance to destroy it in desperate hope to gain control again which instead causes the tower, as it collapses, to cause a raging snowstorm completely devastating the land. Maybe the snowstorm wont keep going for long, but trough the tower's uncontrolled magic chaos will rule. Chaos that even discord himself could mildly enjoy.
Then, from the deepest ruins of the tower, Littlepip has unbelievably survived. Maybe trough one of her levitation feats she kept herself from smashing the ground, or maybe the chaos itself somehow helped her get out without dying. Just the journey from the top of the tower and to safety as the cloud high tower falls would be an epic adventure in itself.
Also, as I said earlier, snow! I doubt I and Piecee are the only ones who would love to see Littlepips reaction to snow for the first time.
It would almost be like stepping out of the stable again into a new world.
Villains would rise, trying to use the situation for their benefit. Friends are in danger. There is a freaking magic tower-bomb that needs to be stopped. Etc etc etc potential and possibilities.
I love you if you read trough all that!
Oh! This picture also has the exact dimensions for a wallpaper except it's 400% bigger. I'm uploading a regular wallpaper sized version on my tumblr, but using the big one works just as well for me. Whatever works best for you! [link]
