This look fantastic for the cover of a fanfic with lot of details, elements related to the story and those illustrations of the characters of the story. Just by it wonderful ensemble of gilts it really give interest of a reader to read so much it makes it intriguing.

Awesome work

Thank you so much! I'm really glad my cover could entice someone to wish to read the story. I actually hadn't had a chance to finish the first story during the commission, but I was hooked by the time I was done, and love all of Tundara's imaginings of the ponies and their world. It makes me happy that my covers can portray my enjoyment of the story and make others wish to find out more. :)

It's quite an intriguing and very lovely cover. The mixture of magical symbols with a "wooden" and nautical twist to it all make for a fun tale of the high seas. (Yes, the boat behind Twilight Sparkle is a major hint too.) There are a few faces I don't recognize but I'm sure that just means there's some good character development and perhaps a bad meanie or two (not mutually exclusive). They all fit into a natural looking look, with all the trees and dendriform mixed with a touch of "fastener-style" links and perhaps a few knots. The trees obviously mean something, along with the un-bordered ponies surrounding the lantern at tome (from the ship?). The face is a bit intriguing too. It looks like it could be a really fun read.

Thanks so much! I really enjoyed looking into some of the nautical themes that the author requested- such as the ship which is based on a real ship named Bellerophon. There were quite a few OC ponies for this commission, but the author's descriptions were very vivid and made it easy to conjurer up their image in my mind. I still haven't had a chance to finish the story- but I have read a way in, and would easily recommend it as an interesting tale of adventure- as well as some interesting concepts about the pony society. :)

I don't know where to begin when discussing this art, there is so much I love about it. The Bellerophon behind Twilight is a big one. All the nautical trimmings and themes throughout the framing. Soir's broach. How each of the mini-portraits turned out. Oh, the watery ponies beside the ship's lantern! I keep staring at them and smiling. I just adore how this turned out. 

Thank you so much for taking this commission, Companda.

I'm so pleased you like it! I really enjoyed reading up on historical ships when I was looking through the references for the Bellerophon- which had it's own amazing history! I'm glad too you liked the broach- as I enjoy designing and drawing jewelry so much haha! I'm glad all the little details fit into what you were looking for and hope it continues to fit the epic scale of the amazing story! :D

I hope the story continues to fit the wonderful art. :D I've been working the past month on a sweeping re-write of the first 8 chapters, adding in things, getting certain plot arcs or characters started/mentioned earlier. I was partly inspired to do this thank to your wonderful art. Working with you was great. I'd like to do so again, if you're willing. When I saw Myths cover, I couldn't help but imagine something similar for the side-story. Perhaps later.

Take care, and best wishes, Companda.

I'm excited to see what the re-writes bring, and am glad that I could contribute to any kind of creative streak!
I'd be more then happy to work with you again in the future- and had a great time working with the Myths cover! :D
