I really wanted to try something new again not knowing what I'm signing to. This one solidified my conviction that painting straight lines on PC is just awful. If I ever were to make another interior I will stick with the art-nouveau style, which will narrow straight lines to the necessary minimum (and will fitt ponies more).
This was definitely an interesting learning experience, but I'm still not completely sure how the composition in the interior works. If any of you have any tips on how to improve at the interrior painting, feel free to share.
Thank you all for the continous support, even during my complete absence!

Yes, this was a long break, but I'm back again and eager to do some new stuff. If you asked about the commision, please contact me again...!

No matter how beautiful it is, a prison is still a prison.

Impressive! If MLP had a bigger budget, maybe Celestia's chamber WOULD have looked somethng like this. I'd love to see Luna's chamber in you style some time.

I think Lazy Nezumi Pro has a perspective tool that help you make straight lines in perspective. Do you have a Graphic tablet or something more similar to the no display accessories? I've found some good old plastic drafting equipment and some French Curves work wonders on my 27QHD Touch.

I'm quite curious of how you balanced your color wheel, can you give any insight on that?  Bunny Emoji-70 (Please to meet you) [V4]

This is really, really beautiful. I do feel the style, layout and overall feel of the imagery stand out. It seems to accentuate around Celestia nicely and the added bonus of her regalness yet, she doesn't come off as overly encompassing. I have to say despite your criticism (as artists or even writers we are sometimes our own worst critics) that this piece is better then expected. Simply put, it's quite stunning and gorgeous.
