Goddamn, if this isn't elegant. First thing I say when I look at this piece. The lightning, the shading, looks otherworldly.

Looks like I'm looking in some goddess's garden, with the sunlight reflected off the plants. I have to admit, the dark wings of Solstice, contrast nicely with the lighter colors of the various plant life, with only the tips of the feathers and the mane of Solstice being colored something besides this dark shade being this nice touch. Like some dark angel really, and yes I realize I'm being poetic, but that's what I'm thinking when I look at Solstice.

No art critic, I admit, but the impact of this piece? Something else.
What do you think?

I've spent a lot of time really looking at this and not only admiring the bigger picture, but the tiny details as well. Her cutie mark at the peak of some of the pointed arches, the dust being exposed in the light, her transparent mane and feathers, but also the texture in the stone and pillars.

Truly this is the most remarkable depiction of Solstice. The atmosphere this piece has is so full of mystery, but elegance. The color composition flows so seamlessly between Solstice and the environment. I have always enjoyed working with you and this time has been no exception. Thank you so much for taking the opportunity to bring another one of my dreams to life!

Loving the background and how well she blends in it but is still able to be the main focus :heart:
