This will be available at BronyScot 2015, during the charity auction for C.H.A.S. (Child's Hospice Association of Scotland).

Painted in acrylics and a canvas for a good couple of days, taking advantage of what little sunlight the cloudy weather allowed me to have.

This was a fun return to form for me, actually. Back in art school I used to do a bunch of acrylic paintings (you can find those going at the end of my gallery) so being able to pick them up again and do something to help with charity is a good change of pace. Also, believe it or not, I didn't miss the undo button while working on this. After doing this one I can't wait to work on the next canvas (there's going to be two more). Celestia deserves some more love. I feel like we haven't seen enough of her these past few seasons. She's a good character, don't you think? She looks after her subjects and wants the best for them. That has to be worth respecting.

Here's a short collection of work in progress shots - Work in Progress.

I originally uploaded it on Twitter, you can check it out - Original Twitter Post.

I hope you guys enjoy it!

I didn't really change my opinion on Celestia, I just stopped paying attention to the hardcore fans. The same way some people got to hate Luna because her fans won't shut up either, I grew an animosity against Celestia and all because of her fans. I stopped paying attention to them and now I can properly appreciate her for both her flaws and virtues.

Lesson learned: Don't pay attention to the hardcore fans.

You don't have to give me a lesson about that
I already know about the hardcore fans I think they take the show way too seriously :| (Blank Stare)

Ooohoo, traditional! This looks very great like all your pieces James, I think I love the shine on the crown, medals, and swords the most.

Oh and also, yush, I agree, we need more Celestia, EqD recently did a poll on what episode we need to see soon, and a Celestia episode came in 2nd place.

I am glad that you really enjoyed it :D

It's been a while since I painted with acrylics, but it feels good to go back to them.
