Before I saw your description, I thought to myself that this looked like it belonged in one of those books on heroic legends or fairy tales from the late Victorian or early Edwardian period. It's an amazing piece of work! The detail and shading are beautiful.

The fact that your style can meld 'cartoon pony' with 'detailed nature background' absolutely astonishes me. This is just spectacular.

The lines are well done; very smooth and natural. This is a scene of relaxation and quiet reflection. Well done.

I was wondering, do you draw "by hand" before you digitalize them ? (Dunno if that's clear..)
That's awesome by the way :D

Oh man, I would kill to see it colored, or, rather, rendered in the same style as some examples from your RG-account. I'm such a sucker for Celestia in such composition set up and I can see what an awesome life you could give to this piece with your colors. I literally can feel the soft and warm Equestrian's morning and shy, timid sunrays coming through the foliage (effect similar to this).

I know you don't plat to color it and I probably won't be able to find anyone who could give it a justice, but in any case - do you have something against? Asking just in case, who knows how things can turn out in future.

Also, is it just me or, um, it seems like you went into ab it realistic style for the pony? Celestia looks way too "horseish", especially her chest are gives me such feeling,

I absolutely love your work! I hope your burn-out recovery is going well.

I know you've probably heard this like a million and seven times, but I think you're one of the best artists in the fanbase. Hands down.
