Aerius Sol

For my First Contact War universe.

Celestia's armour is based on my piece from earlier this year:
I did simplify it a bit, kinda also because less work :P and I was doing it in 1 long session

At first I was sketching very static poses and perspectives, then I thought... lets turn things up. This happened. So tricky, but kinda rewarding, and I gotta practice it somehow...

Yay, Celestia. The only actual show character, besides Luna, that I've included in my universe. Probably also because there are not a lot that live that long...

Approx Time: 12,5 hours

Yay more FCW stuff!

First of all, huuuge kudos for pulling off the perspective on Celestia. I also love the way you did the clouds, both as a framing device, along with Celestia's tale, and the technique.
I really can't make out any real anatomical errors; the foreshortening on the right foreleg on the upper right griffon looks a bit akward, but that's rather minuscule.

My main problem is, that I don't realy get what exactly is going on. Is Celestia rising up to the griffons challenge? Is she ataccking them? Is she being ambushed?

Some details (more aggresive body language in the griffons, Celestia using magic) could clear that up.

All that being said, satill loving it, looking forward to more <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

PS: Are there pony faces hidden in the clouds or am I just seeing things?
