This is absolutely amazing! The detail used in this, is just extraordinary.
I love how you drifted off from the basic my little pony style and gave Twilight and Spike a more realistic touch to it.

The lightening and shading used, just captures the peaceful atmosphere, and it creates a warm effect to it as well. And I really do love how her cutie mark expands across, and doesn't just sit in one little area like My Little Pony style.

I and really love the night sky, the colors used to create it, are just beautiful, and I love the lightening from the sky out cascades into the room and glows on the leaves and the characters.

Overall, I very beautiful piece.

Your use of color is on point, as it always is. I admit that this is something that has always inspired me to try and push my colors and values in my own works. You have a great concept of lighting and texture, and that comes through especially in the small details like the paper and ivy leaves.

The contrast in lighting is wonderful, from the soft and cool light coming from the window, and the warm light (most likely candlelight) from off-screen. The two blend seamlessly and really give a sort of life-like quality to the figures in the image. The softness of the lighting also contributes to the overall mood of this piece, giving the audience a sense of contentment and calm.

Overall, a well done and gorgeous piece.

I've seen a few people commenting on this image with confusion - and in some cases disdain - for how the hooves have been drawn. I think it's incredibly sad that certain individuals seem so opposed to stylistic freedom that they would obsess over such a small element of the image while ignoring the bigger picture. Celebi-Yoshi is by any standard a very talented artist - one look at this picture shows that her knowledge of anatomy, lighting, colouring, shading etc. is vast and adept.

It's a shame that some people seem to take any change to an established character as some sort of personal insult - art is about freedom of expression and creativity, and in the case of this picture whether you like the way the hooves have been depicted or not, I think you'd struggle to argue that they are illustrated poorly within the context of what the artist was hoping to achieve.

People should endeavor to get over their suppositions about what a character should look like and open their minds to the great possibilities that harnessing a pinch of creativity can bring.

I love the fact that this piece of art makes twilight more equine. It is an awesome job all round. I like the hooves and the feathering above them. Shows great care in detail work. It was so kind of you to defend this artiest and her work. There is a heart in you as gold as cuddlepug.

:iconcudpugmagicplz::iconsaysplz:"Look, I'm not the one with the problem, okay? It's the world that seems to have a problem with ME! People take one look at me and go "Aargh! Help! Run! A big stupid ugly ogre!" They judge me before they even know me - that's why I'm better off alone..."

When I see this artwork, I imagine the song, "You'll Be In My Heart" performed by Celtic Woman playing in the background.
