I haven't made a gigantic piece like this in a while. Literally. I drew this a few months ago, and just finished it today. xD

I present to you the counterpart of my earlier work of Luna:

Hope y'all like it.

Do not walk so freely in the light. For while my sun is gentle enough to caress a cheek or a plant, it WILL burn those who are unjust and undeserving.

Why you aren't hired by the Hasbro company itself or just put into the development of art for video games is a truer question I'd like to ask here, lol.

Still can't get past just looking at art as refined as this.  Sorry to go on in such a way but I'm very, very impressed even to this day to see such remarkable works of art of apparently "weird people who draw ponies."  Its one more reason I like to laugh and just marvel at the depth some artists will go do show their attention something the show has to present to us, even its characters.

Delighted as much as amazed looking at the blend of the soft colors, rich background night filled sky and seeing it all come together much like the Northern Lights I see up in Canada here.  I really enjoy something like that and for the oddest reason I get that faint reminder when seeing Celestia.

Just as well I adore the work on the way you present her form almost floating through the clouds in one way and presenting some kind of rising of power with her being surrounded by such a colorful light show.  Either way its neat to see Celestia being noted for her this as she like some other characters on the show have alot more to them and like here can be expanded upon to just incredible lengths.

Where you strive your best is clearly the colors here and again combining such elaborate tones and lighting effects that match her mane and its colors is really mystifying.  I even like the way you soften up the mane like clouds to better show her in the sky and creating all these effects.

Oh yes and where you might expect her to be a huge bright light in the middle of this you do a step better and go dark almost like she's starting to pull up the sun from the night.  The shading itself gives more depth to be seen from the way her wings folds out with all of its many feathers that make it up, the lean and trim length of the body and legs or the dim shine from her many golden accessories.  I especially wow at the way the eyes glimmer with such a pretty light, so you can better see her face and even the jewels that make up some of her golden garments.

Sorry to have gone on this long here Celebi but its a wonderful thing to see something as immaculate as this on the DA.  A big hats off to your incredible talents and my only hope now is that I can somehow have this as my new wallpaper somewhere, lol.  Do keep up the stylish work in anycase, your incredible in what your able to create. *applauses and whistles*
