Love of the Stage by MetaDragonArt Love of the Stage by MetaDragonArt
"her love of the stage is rivaled only by her love to play her cello."

It's...beautiful. I love the colors. Just LOVE them. They're epic. And it's how the room is made that amazes me the most. Just look at how there are chairs on each level of the theater; the placement is wonderful and it is just exhilarating to see. You did a marvelous job. I love it. I shall cherish this and show it to all of my friends and watchers, as this deserves as much love as possible.

I rate this very high, as moderate irony is pretty much the thing I look for most in artwork...
Nice pony, by the way.

Amazing. I like the shading and the backlight given from the perspective. I only wished you had included the top bit from the original.

If I had a reason, then it would be the three holes looking a bit off-putting. Still, very well done.

I should feel ashamed for not telling you earlier, but I've written a story that made it onto EQD with this image as cover art. Please don't kill me for adding some filters to it. ^^;

Hm ... this would appear to be a deeply moving image. *checks papers* Yep, it is; the condition of my emotions confirms it.

I glimpsed it somewhere, perhaps in a video, but didn't know where it was displayed or who the artist was. So glad I peered through your gallery today!

I'm reluctant to ask because I see you've already told somebody that he wasn't allowed to use this picture, but would you horribly mind me using this as cover art for a short story I wrote?

The picture is pretty much literally the story summarized, although Derpy's not included, which is why I'm just going to try my luck and ask anyway. Needless to say, you will be given full credit.

Regardless of whether you give me permission, I just want to say that I absolutely love the picture. It just... works. Am currently using it as a wallpaper (unless you tell me you don't want me to, for whatever reason), and (as I'm sure you've already seen) added it to my favorites on DA.

Fingers (or hooves, whichever floats your boat) crossed, then?

Thanks so much!

I've made sure to link to your dA page, the original artist's page, and both versions of the drawing.

I will say though, that this thing looks AMAZING when taken down in size. It may ruin the style of the picture somewhat, but it really, really enhances the feel. Or... so I think.

Anyways, thanks again!
