Quote from: Vector, co-leader of 2D DepartmentFor the most part, every one of these houses has appeared in the show at some point, so I had the blessing of most of my work already being done for me. The hard part of the design was coming up with the half, or in some cases three fourths, of the house that was not shown. That seems easy when a lot of the work has already been done, but in actuality it requires a lot of research as opposed to a house you can create from scratch. In order to stay consistent with the style of the show I had to study the rules the artists followed while creating ponyville's architecture. The beams especially have a very specific pattern to how they were put together. At key points in the architecture there would usually be an engraving of a stylisticly curved wheat stalk or a flower, and if a window was in a key spot, like the center of the house, it would usually have a flower box or a balcony underneath. Certain rules like these governed how most of that extra two thirds got its look and feel. Whenever there is a building shown in the show, we try to stay as close as possible to the original artists depiction of it. Thus, the reasearch stage.
Quote from: Musetrigger, 2D ArtistI would like to say that while they were easy to make, they were amazing practice, and they happened to be the first true textures I have ever made.
Quote from: Bloomberg on 2012 Nov 06, 00:07:00I hope you've all learned a thing or two about the process of creation and the fantastic people behind it. We truly are thrilled to be presenting you with the artist showcase, and hopefully you've had as much fun reading it as We've had putting it together. Everyone behind Legends of Equestria is working very hard to put this all together, and we're pretty thrilled to be here educating all of our wonderful fans on the game's inner-workings. We'd be nothing without you, which is why you can never leave! So we hope to see you all again at next month's exciting edition of the Legends of Equestria artist showcase!
