Glad to see Daily Deviations put front and center again. This feels like a step in the right direction for the UI.

Before I begin, I'll summarize by saying that this is a fine portrait of Celestia, but I don't feel you accomplished what you set out to do.

I'll be honest: You're right in that this piece did not effectively accomplish what your previous piece did, which is to capture Equestria in the style of a famous artist. A Starry Night in Equestria was powerful in that you instantly could tell where its inspiration had come from, but I really did not see Monet's influence in this piece.

My advice would be to take another hard look at Monet's famous works and try again. This piece is far too...crisp...to be a Monet impressionist painting.

Also read up on the things Monet tended to focus on, such as the way light reflects on certain surfaces.

Like I said: Good Celestia portrait, but it's not so much a Monet-inspired piece. Don't despair; try again after some research and I know you'll make a stunning work of art.
Impression, Celestia
