As I viewed the pageant of mural history I had approached very closely to the end of the low-ceiled hall, and was aware of a gate through which came all of the illuminating phosphorescence. Creeping up to it, I cried aloud in transcendent amazement at what lay beyond; for instead of other and brighter chambers there was only an illimitable void of uniform radiance, such one might fancy when gazing down from the peak of Mount Everest upon a sea of sunlit mist. Behind me was a passage so cramped that I could not stand upright in it; before me was an infinity of subterranean effulgence.

TLDR: Even the quickest Pegasus might feel trapped in the sky, and where then might they escape to?


This was fun as all heck, and finished surprisingly quickly! Only two hours on and off.
This piece is striking in so many ways. First off I love the yellow mane and tail of (Derpy?) against the blue sky making her the obvious focal point. The reason why I give vision a 5 is because it's very pleasing to look at and makes me do a constant circle while looking at the piece, always to end up back on derpy or the center of the swirl. The originality is a 5 because I've never seen this angle done before which is really unique in it's own way. (I rarely use unique but since it's one of a kind it's a good time to use it.) Now the reason why I gave 4 was simply because it's very soft in colors and things begin to mesh over each other making things down in the forest area hard to tell what they are. I know what the things in the background are, but what exactly is the brown streaks up front? Are they barren land? More rocks? The impact is a 4 simply because I don't know the reason for the picture, but it still looks very beautiful. All in all, great job Sharpie <3
