Celestial Practice 2: Academic Art

Styled after the color palette and compositions of the Academic Art style.

Though I'm happy with the painting, it's not quite properly following the set style. I should do a smaller practice... I sorta got carried away with this one to do in one long sitting.

You know what would really be cute? A picture of Celestia protecting Twilight from something :) There's an idea in case you ever get stricken with the horrid thing called artist block.

This is beautiful and wonderfully upbeat. Great work on capturing a classic painting style with more realism (on two levels, actually ;)), even if it wasn't exactly what you were going for. The princess and her student look fantastic, and it's great to see them out having a nice stroll. Little Twilight Sparkle's excitement as she chatters on is palpable, and I they way Princess Celestia is adoring her. The background, palace, etc. all look great too, and I really like the extra jewelry you gave the princess. Thanks again for sharing it with us. :)

Twi's so cute, Celestia's probably thinking 'if I wasn't immortal I'd probably die from the adorableness of it all.'

This is such a gorgeous piece! I love the little bits of jewelry Celestia is wearing. I love the little accents of jewelry on her wings, and her horn.

Most of all, I love that little warm smile Celestia is giving her young student. My heart swells with joy!

Celestia looks so gorgeous and motherly in this one with her robust looking anatomy. And Twilight with her pure cuteness surely makes her smile with joy. I like the little chains on her horn and those little jewelries on her wings. Where did you get the idea?

Awesome work. How many hours?
