I don't usually do just
haphazard painty things. I've actually got a much more typical picture of this same scene, from a completely different angle underway, but realized it was much more about the scene, the emptiness, and the isolation, that it was how she looked when she realized what she was looking at.
And this ISNT spoilers actually. It's pretty understood from the second or third page of the fucking BEHEMOTH of a story that is End of Ponies, that literally everyone died. This is just from a flashback later on, filling in the oh so juicy spaces between that was then and this is now.
have a painting of a broken 9 yearold scoots clinging to the half burnt husk that used to be her idol, under the fallen ruins of cloudsdale.
Go read End of Ponies. It's huge. It's amazing. Best thing i've ever read.

i probably grossly misunderstood where this happened, but this is what i got out of those lovely descriptions
