Very nice art! i adored her since i was 4 years old 30 years ago as she was one of my first crushes, she is cute.

She is on par with Lady Death, Taarna from Heavy Metal, Kida from Atlantis, Red Sonja, Arwen from LOTR,  Demona from Gargoyles, Teegra from Fire and Ice, Princess Leia and other fantasy beauties or rather more on par with Ariel the mermaid and Kira from Dark Crystal in terms of girl with an alluring pure innocence.

Thanks, but having just read the book I think I'm going to re-paint her. Larger eyes, slightly more fierce looking behind the sadness.

THis is breathtaking :heart: Amalthea and her tale mean the world to me, and you captured her grace, sorrow, beauty, and other-worldliness perfectly.:heart:

Do you think the story and movie influenced Equestria girls? same thing about Equines who get turned human, a unicorn who gets humanized, falls for human guy, must battle a flame theme villain and all that.

Do you think Amalthea is a combo of Rarity and Fluttershy? same beauty like Rarity and same pure innocence like Fluttershy

I honestly think Equestria girls was just for marketing purposes. Making the ponies into humans makes more money for Hasbro.
I consider Amalthea in a league of her own. SHe is a different type of unicorn. "Old as the sky, old as the moon." and she is the only unicorn that can regret, other unicorns can't.

And do you think Lady Amalthea is on par with Ariel, Kira the gelfling and Abigale Arcane Holland from Swamp Thing comics in terms of fantasy ladies with a pure innocence and otherworldy beauty?

Definitely on par with Kira, they are both from that age of fantastic fantasy stories. I don't know which Ariel you refer to, and I have no idea who Abigale is ^^;

ooooh my other favorite princess heh I'd say Ariel and the other Disney princesses are not on par with Amalthea for me. They are not magical or ancient like the unicorns.

What about Kida from Atlantis? she is magical and ancient.

Thanks so much! I feel that her skin is too pink. I work on a pc with a super bright screen, and when I swapped to my mac I realised she was a bit orange!

awww I know those feels! it's hard to work on a laptop because of the color differences, I keep hoping the skin tones I choose aren't too off once I submit them ^^; but she looks very good to me!

It's a bit of a pain really, because everyone is then viewing it on different screens and once it's uploaded who knows what people are seeing! We have the same problem in publishing with printing - different print presses have differences in colour so consistency is a nightmare. I wish it could all be standardised! Bane of my life.

Thank you!! I think it's too vibrant. I painted it on a super bright pc screen and when I looked at it on my mac it was a lot stronger.
