Technique

Even if there were no signature, there is no questioning that this is anything other than art by Noben; flowing lines, excellent use of the beautiful, muted pastel colors, lighting, shadow and luminosity are unmistakable. Lighting porn? Yes, please!

Focal point 1: The feathers on her spread wing draw the eye in to her head and face.

Focal point 2: The broad, motherly hips with her cutie mark and panties showing through her nightshirt.

Pose/Body Language

It's a fairly common 'cheesecake' pose, but there is an innocence to it that shines through.

Her mouth is closed or hidden, so there is no obvious cue to her mood. Her eyes are focused right on the audience, and her eyebrows are raised, but it’s not a surprised expression, more one of curiosity or bemusement. Cute, maybe even unguarded.

She is resting her head on her right arm, and the overall flow of her body is very relaxed, but the left arm…it’s not quite what I’d call nervous but… uncertain?

Impression

In my imagination, the narrative I attach to this is that she was asked to do this particular pose but isn’t sure why. She’s comfortable, but she seems not to know how to go about looking enticing for the viewer and feels a little awkward. Given Celestia’s normally self-confident personality, the overall effect here is heart-meltingly cute.

“Come hither,” is something I tend to associate more closely with a sexual or erotic sort of appeal, and that’s not what I’m getting here, especially when compared to the sultry appeal of Luna in your (no pun intended) sister work. However, I look at this and I want to brush her hair, and go over that snowy white fur with a currycomb - and maybe a hug (maybe lots of hugs), so it definitely possesses an appeal that draws me in.

Given your understanding of lighting and luminosity, it would be interesting to see you experiment with a ‘lineless’ style for some of your work. I feel it is very likely that the results would be breathtaking.

She said "Come hither"
And my heart went all a-tither,
And when I had gone thither,
She was yon.

I can understand this kind of art and I like it but for me watching My Little Pony, making drawings of them or even making animation of that cartoon does't make everyone a brony and yes I'm a furry and otaku but not brony because being a brony mean you are part of the fandom and I prefer draw MLP for the bronies not for me I just like the show that's all, so you are not alone, by the way nice art and I'm still a newbie in art.

I don't even know what the box art looks like, much less what's in that game. All I hear is "It's Nintenhard and beyond" so I nod and go back to drawing and writing. lol

Basically, it's a tough-as-nails game that - quite literally - has potential death around every corner. It was released in 2011, but didn't gain its attention until a year later, largely due to its difficulty. Not only that, but it grants a great sense of reward after you get through that one area that you have died in around twenty or so times, especially so once you have beaten one of the games many bosses.

I don't know if Id call it a come hither pose. I think it's more of a 'if you came over here I wouldn't mind' pose. The way her arm is extended and the look of her eyes seems tentative to me. Also the shape of her body and the flow of her hair has a soft and gentle flow to it. Come hither implies that more hardened sexuality. It could just be me though.

But I like this and I wouldn't consider myself a Brony by any means. The clothing on your characters is always top notch and drapes and clings realistically. The use of the wing as a shade is a great way to play with the lighting. And is it just me or does the wing have a shape like one of those feather props burlesque dancers used in the 50s or still use at places like the Moulin Rouge?

Thank you!
The title needs work.  And also getting hits for folks misreading it as "Come Hitler Pose".  Um.. yay for perceived typos?
You don't have to consider yourself a brony, and I find it awesome you like it nontheless.  I never noticed that about the wings, I just thought of 'em as folded up tight with the feathers splayed, but it's a neat comparison and it gave me an idea.  ^_^

Your welcome. People looking at it for misreading it as 'Come Hitler Pose', I don't know if I should laugh or be worried about who is looking for that. Of course you could combine the burlesque feather fan with a Hitler pose and see how many people blow a gasket. I'm only kidding that is a really bad idea.
