Twilight's Castle by frostykat13 Twilight's Castle by frostykat13
Yep. Pretty self-explanatory XD
This took me a really long time, and I hope you guys like it :3 I actually like Twilight's castle design; even though I would've preferred a little bit more of a woodsy theme ;P

Time taken: 4h
Tools used: Copic markers, promarkers, white gel pen, copic opaque white, colored pencils
Twilight's castle belongs to (c) Hasbro
Art by me

Great work on the new tree castle! I found this drawing while searching for designs to create Twilight Sparkle's treehouse for a series of crossover drawings I am doing where the MLP ponies and their Equestria Girls counterparts are together side-by-side doing fun things together in Ponyville. My next drawing in the series will have Twilight having her own royal residence--a regular tree similar to her old library and much more modest than her new castle on the TV show. This tree is not too far from the library tree that still stands and where she still works.

She is a princess of Equestria, not her own kingdom, whose royal duties on behalf of the crown include running the Ponyville library and being a teacher at Equestria High School. And since she's still trying to learn to fly with her new wings, Twilight still prefers walking to unintentional dive bombing. In my drawings she is Everypony's Princess: approachable, likable, down-to-earth, and still an adorkable schoolgirl at heart.

You're welcome! I hope Season 5 won't be the last for FIM; I just have a Pinkie Sense (so to speak) that this season will be it. I hope I'm wrong. In the meantime, would you like me to alert you when my next drawing with the two Twilights (pony and human) is done?

I'm working on that drawing right now. It will take some time to complete it. An Equestrian Royal Guard who patrols the royal treehouse will actually be smiling; I understand on the show they are usually stoic, serious and seemingly angry given the nature of their job. The whole regal atmosphere surrounding Princess Twilight will be more low-key, muted and approachable. And "Twi" will prefer walking to flying because in this fan art even Derpy is a better flyer than she is.Giggle

The library was great! It had one of the coolest house designs I've ever seen in television.
But then they had to replace it with a castle that completely clashes with everything that Ponyville and the Mane 6 are about.

I think that Twilight's new castle and gaining her new kingdom are part of a long-term story arc that will go through the series to the end of its run. I have this sneaking suspicion that the way the storylines have progressed, the Mane Six are actually part of some ancient prophecy where by coming together, through the Elements of Harmony they represent with their respective cutie marks, they will bring lasting peace to all of Equestria, banish all its long-standing enemies, and Twilight might actually take Celestia's place as ruler of Equestria with the rest of the Mane Six as her co-rulers.

Pretty far fetched, perhaps, but FIM has shattered all the stereotypes of what an animated show based on little girls' toys should be like, made its mark in television history, and raised the bar for children's animation as a genre, so anything and anypony is possible.

That very well could be the case and I hope that something like that happens
What I'm saying though is that they could've spent a little more time designing something less atrocious.

Yes, I agree it is atrocious, but stylistically and graphically it's consistent with the works of both Lauren Faust and her husband. And the suits at Hasbro have the final say in what's in and what's out.

In my own crossover fan art, I keep it simple. Twlight is a princess like in the TV show, but in the deviated, hybrid Ponyville her job is to help and encourage others like she was, and she's happy with that. The much less gaudy royal treehouse I am designing will be in keeping with that humility.

I just got an idea for a short fan story based on the posts here. Twilight is hosting her human counterpart and student Twyla Sparks at her royal treehouse in recognition of her good grades and academic excellence. Spike and Rainbow Dash are there as well. Twyla is surprised at her teacher's modest home for being a Princess of Equestria, and says she had a different kind of castle in mind. Twilight uses her magic to visualize Twyla's description for all to see in a large dream cloud. When it's done, all the girls ooh and aah at Twyla's idea, which is identical to the actual castle on the TV show. When Twilight looks behind her at the picture, however, she screams loudly and comically faints. 

Twyla, mimicking her teacher, is screaming "Ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh I killed Miss Twilight I KILLED HER I KILLED a PRINCESS I didn't mean to please don't arrest me don't make me face Princess Luna and her thees and thous royal Canterlot voice PLEASE wake up Miss Twilight WAAAAAAAAAUGH!" Waaaah!

A dazed Twilight Sparkle asks her guards to calm down and comfort Twyla instead, while Spike opens up a brand-new textbook for Twilight to be revived from its new-book smell. Giggle

I'll admit the finale was toy commercial in the end but it was an awesome toy commercial with a great story  and songs to it :D

I think the part with Twilight's key and Discord was kinda rushed.
And the song with the 3 princesses at the beginning was awful.

You know, even if she forgoes guards she'll still need a staff to keep the castle in order. 
She could end up employing half of Ponyville.

I love how you used colored pencils to make the sky recede a bit compared to the hills and castle. :) And the big sparkly star is just amazing. I'm awful at shiny metal, well, shiny stuff in general. xD
