I'm really not good at drawing background...orz

The Chinese New Year vacation is over.
I don't want to go back to the university. Q3Q
It's getting busier and busier.

Faved for how well thought out this is.

Looks great, and as others have said it really is reminiscent of classic sci-fi like Asimov. You (or requester) have a backstory for the robo-pony?

Also, you're maybe the first I've ever seen draw Princess Twilight in the distant future doing something other than bawling over the graves of the other five. (I'm sure she'll miss them, but there's more than one thing that can be done with the idea of Twilight in the future, a ton more in fact, and it's refreshing to see someone use some of it.) Thanks for that. :)

It is meant to have a little "Asimov" breath into it, quite so :)
And yes, there is a backstory to the concept, as well as to this very scene ^_^ If you wish I could note it :)
Oh yes,  Princess Twilight does have quite an important role in this future world. Times of cries are long gone, and times of responsiblity, study decisions and well planned actions have arrives.....she is quite a catalyst in the story, even if it's not really centered around her ^^:

The royal guard and the robot make me think of The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov.

Nice details!  I like how the angular buildings contrast with the rounded ponies, with the robot somewhere in-between.

Oh dear, I am so thrilled you such a comparison in this story, and robotic character like R Daneel  :D
This was meant to be a small part of a fic centered on this robotic individual ^^; Although he is not really a robot...if you wish I could enter in detail ^^;
Anyhow, I am glad someone made such an attribution here ^_^

I love how Twilight looks as all grown up! ^^

I always love the concept that Twilight will get to rule Equestria solely when Celestia and Luna either abdicates or dies during their reign. If this would be the case, though, then I'm implying that Equestrian leaders are NOT immortal, but rather are gifted with a WAY longer lifespan than regular ponies. So that means, Twilight has at least 1000 years as Equestria's head of state and government; giving her enough time to find her next suitable heir to mentor in the future (the same process that Tia did). And after that, the process repeats itself again and again.
