Celestia: Twilight, look before you, my faithful student, you see everything that both the sun and the moon touch is our kingdom.

CvBrony sent me here, I'm Chatoyance on Fimfiction by the way, and... wow. I really love the luminescent effect you have going here, and the spot lighting effects limning edges and contours. Such a deep, Parish Blue sky, and I can almost feel the wind on Twi's mane. I also like the subtle shading on Celestia's wings, between them. I'm going to try to remember that trick.

I remember when I first saw this. I loved the scene, the colors, the glow. It's amazing, really. Some parts look like they're vectors, like Princess Celestia's hair, while others look solely raster-based. Did you combine the mediums?

Thanks for the compliment. I think I used some temporary vectors on a spot or two (Celestia's eye) but it's predominantly raster. Celestia's hair shape was made by turning up the smoothing on the lasso tool.
