BC (Before Canterlot)

~ Equestria, Chapter 1, Verse 3
And Celestia said, Let there be Canterlot: and there was Canterlot.

Not really fond of this colour combination. The orange and purple seems to be dominating each other.
Anyway, I came out with other two rejected thumbnails before selecting this one. Still working on the lighting and brush techniques. I have a looooooooong way to go.

Very surreal. I love it, and I think it's a great idea which you've portrayed fantastically.

I like how the other rock spires fade into the background.

Whoa, this is 144% cooler than the old Genesis. That rock reminds me of Pride Rock in The Lion King.
BTW, what did Luna say?

Such a beautiful image. I also like your your usage of 'BC' = 'Before Canterlot'.

These are some fantastic colors used. The tones are especially spot on. I also love how Celestia looks younger than she is now

Why did you pick orange and purple?
Are you doing a triad?

Looks great so far.

Actually, I think the purple/orange color scheme looks really nice. I think Celestia's candyfloss colors look a bit out of place in it though, and stick out. They look a bit too cool against the warmth of the background. But overall, this is very well done. :)
