Didn't understand the story well, but I do like this picture.

This is really neat. The white on black gives it a chalky look, even though I think the strokes are from a white pencil of some kind?

It took me a second to notice all the words hidden in the objects they name. "Mill" hidden in the fan blades of the wind mill were particularly sneaky. Then another few seconds to realize they rhyme, which makes entirely too much sense given the story's focus on Zecora. Cloud, plowed; oak, smoke; hill, mill; ridge, bridge.

I keep looking back at Zecora wondering if her name is on her somewhere, but then I'm not sure what you'd rhyme with Zecora in the scene ;)

Very well done. OH and the black and white style is zebra colors. Double points!

Rhyme Scene

This is white and gray pencil on black paper. It's a good thing that I am the main contributor to the art rounds at present or this might be the sort of tell that puts me at a disadvantage.

I won't assert that this precisely illustrates the story, but it did put me in mind of how the world might appear to a person like Zecora, so I ran with that. The hardest part was coming up with landscape rhymes.

Also thinking on it a little while later, Zecora's rhyme is in the title :)
Or close enough at least. It's good enough for Dora.
