Ooh forgot about this one. It's an oldish request for one of my friends on Facebook.

Grass Marks is a super busy pony, even working his news reporting job into the night sometimes. I had a weird little idea for this thing along the lines of, if you could see the stars through the bright city lights, would you take a moment a pause the stressful city buzz to just look up and see them?

Nice. And now you've made me think about Pegasi in the big city: it's a 3-d landscape for them, isn't it? Tops of light poles and rooftops just as accessible as the sidewalks, perching on gargoyles, snacking on the 30th-floor garden balconies of annoyed Earth and Unicorn Ponies...

whoa,I'm not the guy that praises every picture he sees,but holy hell there's something about this one that I love.Its simple,detailed without any other jibberish that would ruin it.The context of the character is pretty good too^^,and those skyscraper lights! Feels like Its an actual city in wich a reporter like Grass Marks would actually REPORT shit to the Bugle.

This piece captuers the large city feeling from up high. I like the piece and if you do more city pieces I look forward to them(maybe something closer to the ground). ;P

I was always a little jealous that Grass always got awesome fanart.  Still one of the coolest bronies I know though.

I simply adore everything about this picture - starting from composition to lights and shades play! But there's something to make my eyes wet (with pride, of course!) - the way one can feel lonely im a big city with all its routine and constant pressure, the way we forget ourselves and our dreams. And getting a reminder of who we really are is one of the most precious things!
Thank you for this art - and for such reminder!

The shape of the buildings are interesting. Being a person living in an urban area, I often see a bit of variety of shapes for skyscrapers.

I see that Drawfriend has been quite flooded with your work and I have to say that your style is now one of my favorites! The way that you craft the environment around the characters is fantastic and you manage to do this in a way that I very rarely see! I dare say that you have become one of my favorite pony artists in only a short time! Great work on all of your art and I cannot wait to see much more in the future! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Well, in a city, there is so much light pollution that you can't really watch as much stars and very well as in the country.
