Celestial by acidic-fire Celestial by acidic-fire
SPITTAKE I JUST SAW MY ART ON EQD OMGAH 8D 8D /freaking out

Well, since I did a Luna piece, I figured I’d go all out and make Celestia a piece too, otherwise it wouldn’t be fair. Celestia is actually one of my favorite characters (because she’s so pretty haha shallow much no but seriously) and she gets so much flak which is kinda sad. With this picture, I wanted to show that she can be beautiful, but also terrible.
I really wish there was more Celestia music out there! Thanks to :iconblackgryph0n: for the vector of Celestia’s cutie mark!

What? Her crown’s missing? Psh. Who needs a crown when you have The One Ring?

In the place of Discord you would have a Queen!
Not dark but beautiful and terrible as the Morn! Treacherous as the Seas!
Stronger than the foundations of Equestria!
All shall love me and despair!

i actually really like the colour tones you used in this one- her mane is usually a bit hard to look for me at because of its pallet- but its gorgeous here :)

Oh thank you so much! I'm really happy with how her mane turned out in this picture too, I wanted less of that pastel-princess look and more hot sun tones for that powerful feeling and I'm glad that the effect is working!

I didn't see the ring until you mentioned it in the description. :XD: That's just brilliant! The color palate on this is just gorgeous and the bold coloration really makes this piece just jump out at the viewer.

Absolutely splendid!

Thank you so much! I added a few colors that aren't in Celestia's actual mane to add to the effect of heat/power that I wanted to convey, I'm so glad you like it! :D

I was already like, "Dang, this is awesome! I'm totally gonna fave this!" Then, I read the description and saw your LotR shoutout, and I was like, "Can I favorite a description?"
:iconfluttershyyayplz:

Seriously, though. Also, said shoutout takes on a whole new level of meaning after Luna demonstrated that the TRADITIONAL ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE is ridiculously similar to Galadriel's voice from that scene you reference.

You're welcome!

I'm sure the guards and nobles at the palace will be pleased upon Luna's return, since she won't be bellowing in their faces any more. XD

Well I have written an overture for the (maybe possible) Celestia and Discord story musical I have floating around my head. The piece is for pipe organ and I shall upload it to Youtube soon. That sorta counts as Celestia music right? Since she's a main character in the story?

Oh wow. I love the yellow-orange color tint and the extra stylization you've got going on. And yeah, people seem to forget that Celestia has power over the sun, and is more than just a pretty side character.

The background must have taken hours, and that's not even counting Celestia!

acidic-fire Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011
haha, the background was actually the easy part! Celestia took me quite a while since this is one of my first attempts at lineless coloring (as well as one of my first attempts at actually drawing ponies), so it was a real pain to figure everything out!

I love this piece. I also love the comparison between Celestia and Galadriel.

It's a good thing for us all that Celestia's innate goodness would lead her to decline the Ring were it actually offered.

Thank you so much! I couldn't help but draw parallels - they're both ancient, beautiful, powerful royalty figures, and are both a bit terrifying, haha.

Oh, but we can only hope she would refuse, because if she didn't...
