Originally it was only supposed to be a headshot piece, but when he requested Celestia, I knew I had to make a full body piece to complete my princess collection. Sorry it took a little longer than planned! But I hope the end result was worth it!
I've been doing a lot of re-draws lately. For some reason, this picture ([link]) is my most popular picture ever. So, I decided to redo it, hopefully a bit better... So have Celestia with not-so-spaghetti-like legs
Princess Celestia just does not get enough credit. Sure, Luna is easy to love (especially when there are so many variations of her personality to choose from), and Cadance will probably end up selling more toys, but when push comes to shove I have to say Celestia is my favorite Princess. At turns majestic, playful, scheming, and always loving towards her little ponies, she's the full package.
My all-time favorite bit of plotting from FIM is probably the moment a distraught Twilight finds herself bombarded with every Friendship Report she had written in the previous season, making a show element I had taken for granted suddenly seem like a master bit of chess positioning. From that genius move onward, I've never doubted Celestia has known what she's doing... and while others enjoy attributing darker edges to her as a result of such schemes, I have no doubt that she's all sunshine and warmth, myself.
