So: Actually my first idea was a pretty deep, and I know that this theme is not popular in our community but despite this fact I did a risk to think about parents of the Princesses.
"Each segment has a beginning" and although Sisters are immortal i am pretty sure they was born by... classical way^^
Is this so or not one I can say being sure: they survived much more than one generation.
Which means they can remember ponies who was near to them in past and not exist at the current time.
Who they are? I thought about Princesses's parents, but they can be anyone.
Also this picture is a test of a comic style. I thought that drawing background with sharp lines will allow to draw it faster.
I was mistaken X)
Oh, Luna and Celestia's parents? Heck, why not? That's a nice idea Even if it's not as popular as the other theory of them being immortal and "created rather than having been born", I'm glad there's people going with this headcanon too.
There is a theory that Star Swirl invented the alicorns and immortality. He applied the magic of immortality to himself, as he once said that he has lived for 1000 years. He saw that the sisters are very capable of magic and took them to his apprentices.
I really think Celestia and Luna are the first alicorns. They used to be unicorns.
This is an amazing image! I LOVE it so much. In one image you captured emotion and tell an entire story... A story in the mind of the viewer. That reflection is so powerful! It brings all the magic to life. You are amazing friend. This needs to be a poster!!! The background is beautiful and so well done.
wow, this is quite the gorgeous piece...
I personally struggle a lot with backgrounds, mind sharing some sources that may have helped you learn to do your own? I try to just look around outside and sketch whatever I see but it's always nice to hear how others do/did it! c:
Egad, I didn't even notice the reflection until I read your description, very nice! I like subtle things like that, finding a gem! =^^=
Horrible thought: "So that's what the bathroom looks like 1000 years after the toilet overflowed" =P
I feel the backstory of Celestia and Luna was one of the major things the shows creators shouldn't have left in the dark. Among other things *cough* Zebra's and Diamond Dog's. Hell Celestia sorta confirms when Flurry was born that she and Luna aren't natural Alicorns.
