This was inspired by Celestia by Cizu. More or less the same composition, but done in what you could call "my style", by which I mean "I can't paint like that". :( (Sad)  I kinda wanted to have it more polished, but I also don't want to keep hanging on to it. It's basically a procrastination piece, so maybe I can get back to really working on things if I get it outta here.

The wip uploads are here.

This was all done in Paint Tool SAI. It's lightweight, and has most of what I could need for painting.

It's getting a little long in the tooth, especially with regard to canvas size limitations, and it's successor, SAI2 is slow in coming, but I still can't give it up, even when faced with very similar alternatives. It's just too comfortable now.

I absolutely love the way you shade your pictures. The vivid colours really complement each other very nicely!
