Heaven's Hell - The Art BookThere are artists who I admire because of their style and work. I admire them and I want to be where they are now. Working as a concept artists. They gave me goal and dreams.
But there are artists who I admire because they helped me reaching that goal. When I started to take digital art and overall art seriously (which wasn't that long ago) I found some artists who showed me how to do things and I doubt I would be here if they didn't help me. One of them is :iconk04sk:
I watched many of his LiveStreams and he taught me so many things. And not so long ago he asked his watchers to spread the word about art book (Heaven's Hell) his friend is publishing so here is the link to his journal entry: http://k04sk.deviantart.com/#/d5p2q7g

My Thoughts on Celestia and LunaAnd so we come to the two regal sisters themselves. Celestia and Luna, the Princesses of My Little Pony. Despite not being in the show so much, the little that these two characters have done is so big, both on and off screen, that I've come up with tons to write about, for better or for worse.My Thoughts on Celestia and Luna3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Let me start by addressing a particular complaint I came across when I first started watching the show. That issue is the fact that they're both Princesses in a land where no other form of royalty seems to exist. It was argued that because there are no older monarchs above them, like a king or something, that they should be called Queens instead of Princesses.
Well firstly, let me say right now that it is not unusual or unheard of for countries to be ruled by princes and princesses rather than kings or queens. These types of nations are known as principalities and while I'm not familiar with any such nations that exist at the moment, I do know that they were at one point fairly common in Europe,

Her hoofsteps were quiet as her body led her to the Canterlot library.
Maybe there, after all, there would be answers.
As the princess of the night, she had no trouble at all adjusting to the sudden darkness that greeted her inside the large, expansive room. She simply peered inside and lit the area with a light from her horn.
It was the most extensive private library in Equestria, making lighting scarce because it had to be spread throughout the whole area. But in truth, it was only so dark because it was located inside the mountain Canterlot hung off of.
This was her private escape... her dimly lit sanctuary. This was where she went when she was sad, or bored, or angry...
She frowned, noticing a few things out of place since the last time she had come here. The only other pony that could have been in here was Celestia. She would have to ask her sister about it later
The alicorn then looked around somewhat nervously. What if the Heartless could spawn

In Ponyville's library, two purple beings stood stubbornly, staring each other down and trying to talk the other into their respective mindset. One was a unicorn, and one was a dragon.
"I know it's weird to have a pony just show up in the library, and I know that if he were any other pony, I'd agree with you, Spike," said the lavender unicorn, "but he seems genuinely clueless. He can't even remember his own name."
"How do you know he wasn't lying?" the purple dragon argued, drawing his crossed arms closer to his chest.
"He didn't even know what a cutie mark was," Twilight said in exasperation, lowering her neck and shaking her head slowly before continuing. "I don't know how or why, not exactly, but I just know he was telling the truth."
Spike's hardened gaze softened a bit, and he sighed to himself before relenting.
"Just... be careful, Twi," he said before glaring slightly at the wall behind the lavender mare. "I mean, if he just snuck in here li

At that moment, it seemed that one heart beat more quickly than the hearts of anypony else in the small town.
It was like that for the golden pegasus colt. He was running, stretching his wings, defying the sky with the strength of his feathers. His hoofs beat against the rooftops with the steady rhythm that matched the speed of his physical heart.
The colt's feathers quivered as he came to a sudden stop, looking straight ahead with the pose of a strictly trained dog by Rainbow Dash's command. He heard the words telling him to jump once again. He did so, pounding at the sky with his remaining strength.
"Alright kid! I think you deserve a break," came the cyan mare's decisive words.
The colt nearly collapsed on the spot.
For the past hour, Rainbow Dash had been coaching him. He had been jumping across the rooftops of Ponyville, improving the amount of time he could continuously use his wind magic. He was sure that he could begin flying already, but instead, Ra

"The Elements of Harmony."
It was a simple subject, really. She had gone over everything about a million times, but nothing in the book could satisfy the burning curiosity that was roiling in her head.
"Elements of Harmony... Elements of Harmony," she mumbled, crushing the pages under her hooves to flip them faster than her magic would allow. At this hour, after all, she was growing too tired to use magic quickly enough for her liking.
There was nothing there. Nothing in the wretched book could explain what she was looking for.
Twilight Sparkle groaned in frustration, her nose slamming against the rumpled pages of her book. She recoiled right after, rubbing her injured nose with a hoof before returning her focus to reading the encyclopedia.
There had to be some reasonable explanation to this!
It was like going over Pinkie's unexplainable ability to predict things in the near future, but Twilight wasn't going to give up this time. Pinkie was Pinkie, but t

Fluttershy's Infernal Adventure
"Please, Angel Bunny - just a teeny, tiny little sip?" Fluttershy brought the spoon closer to the little rabbit's mouth, but he pouted and kicked it away.
The pegasus frowned. "You just have to take your medicine, or else that sniffle is going to get even worse!" She turned and quickly poured another spoonful, but when she looked back, Angel was gone.
Fluttershy looked this way and that, but there was no sign of the little rabbit. "Oh Angel bunny, you're too sick to play hide-and-seek!" she scolded. She looked under the sofa, behind the little coffee table with its vase of moonflowers, but she couldn't see him anywhere!
It was then that she noticed the wind had pushed open the front door of the cottage and she gasped.
She quickly trotted outside, just in time to see a tiny little cotton-tail disappearing down the garden path.
"Wait! Angel, wait!" She trotted after the little rabbit. "You'll get lost!"
Soon she came to a c

In her wake, a balloon from the Globe-Gallopers Society coasted along at full sail, barely managing to keep up with its heroic guide and guardian. An old friend and frequent patron, one Dr. McMonocle, gripped the craft's wheel in his hooves and a finely ground lens in his eye socket. The grizzled, grey whiskered earth pony scanned the horizon with a gimlet eye, trusting the intrepid pegasus mare to lead him to his current quarry: the world famous ethnologist, equinopologist, and explorer Professor Wander, who'd been missing for well over a week.
He drew himself up expectantly as Daring banked and traced a wide soaring arc, like a wheeling falcon, and circled back toward his conveyance. She came alongside the gondola, sheltering from the boiling sun under

(Starring Rarity and Twilight Sparkle)
In the small town of Ponyville, one can find a rather peculiar building near the outskirts. No, it isn't peculiar because it contains a pony eating monstrosity born within the very depths of the Underworld, but rather because of its peculiar appearance. The exterior was that of a carousel, very similar to the ones that can be found in a carnival. It was called (oddly enough) the Carousel Boutique. What was most interesting, however, was the purpose of this ornate establishment. If you were to ask a noblepony in the most fashionable districts of Canterlot where she got that wonderful dress she was wearing, she would tell you that it came from the same place that had just been mentioned. The Carousel Boutique was well known amongst the elite of Equestria for being the provider of wonderfully fashionable dresses.
Inside the shop was just as extravagant as the outside, if not more. The walls were painted in various shade

As usual, this review will contain spoilers for the episode. If you have not seen this episode yet, you have been warned.
Our episode begins in the city of Canterlot, where we see Princess Celestia singing some documents in her throne room. A guard bursts in to inform her that "it" has returned. Shocked by this news, she orders for Princess Cadence and Shining Armour to be brought to her. She begins writing a letter to Twilight and we cut to the opening credits.
After the credits finish we see Twilight in her home preparing for some test that Celestia has set for her. She's clearly stressed about it and despite efforts from her friends, she continues to be tense. Back at Canterlot, Princess Celestia is discussing matters with her sister, Luna, before Twilight arrives. As Luna departs, Celestia informs Twilight that the test she'll b
