Someone requested a picture of Celestia so I used her as a speed paint warmup for this morning. Worked longer on this than I meant to. I was originally only going to spend 1 hour on it but ended up going till 2.5 hours. Oops!
I'm your Secret Santa ~SpaceKitty! Have Princess Celestia and Princess Luna having a good OLD FASHION style snowball fight. They agreed, no magic. Wings however are another story these sisters will have to work out for themselves. ;D Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
I wanted to draw both Princess Luna and Princess Celestia, so here's what I came up with. I struggled with the background because nothing seemed to quite fit the two - especially in this pose. So, I ended up doing something very simple. I figured Celestia is sort of supporting Luna while she is fulfilling her duty for the first time after the time she had been trapped in the moon. So, a simple night background. Hopefully, next time I'll make something a little bit more complex. It was fun adding in all the sparkles - I might have even over done it a little, maybe. :,D Hopefully you still like the picture!
This was originally sketched out as a more serious fight/sparring match, but then I went to the beach... So now they're having fun and playing in the water. Besides, they look like they need to spend more fun time together.
The thing I was trying to do in the sketch was work on getting ponies to twist and turn. Celestia has a more dramatic turn of her entire body and Luna is a subtle twist of her back end. PS CS5
