ArtBid: Celestial Night

Update: I'm so happy that I won this beauty! :heart:

Phew, here is something what might be considered as full detailed illustration after some sketches! 
I needed to test paper before I'll make a gouache sketchbook from it so technique was picked easily :D And because I somehow missed art auction  to adopt this sweet nebula mare I simply had to give it try! :la:
Excuse me, I'm into nebula and galaxy designs :heart: And so happy about many things here :3

Original import picture is here:
