Hello! So I finally finished this. It should have been done a long time ago, but I kept being unsatisfied with how it looked, so I stopped working on it out of frustration for a few months... But it's done now!

It is based off of this song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8H7ZwD…
It's called "Shadow of the Day", by Linkin Park. You should check it out.

So, one day I was listening to it, when I thought of Celestia 'cause she raises the sun. Since she was like the "day", I got a picture in my head of her sitting on the world, with her shadow over it. I'm so glad it ended up looking so nice! I was really afraid I wouldn't be able to make what I saw in my head, but this is pretty darn close!

And of course, comments and faves are appreciated! Hope you like!

To be honest, the first song that popped into my head was literally "On Top of the World" by Imagine Dragons. XDD

But other than that, this is amazing! :)

Huh. For some weird reason, I went on a very wild tangent when I saw this. I thought you had drawn Princess Celestia as a jet, possibly an F/A-18F fighter or a B-52G bomber because her wings are held back at just about the same angle as they would be on a plane.

Anyway, I do love this piece.  It got me thinking (seriously this time) 'there can be no shadows without light', and when the light of the world is sitting on said world, it's kind of ironic that it would be her shadow. I also VERY much love the way her wings and tail form a curtain.
Based on where the shadows are relevant to her body, the source of light is her... horn? I like it.

All in all, I love this. I actually might need to make it my wallpaper or something, because I want others to see it.

I'm faving this, not only because of the lovely art, but also YAY Linkin Park! That title instantly reminded me of the song :)

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in gray
And the sun will set for you

This looks lovely! I love the way the sky and such looks behind the earth and Celestia. The shadow is very well placed on the earth as well! Awesome job!
