Princess Celestia by Huussii Princess Celestia by Huussii
"That dawn, sun felt much heavier to lift. Gentle morning mist flowing down from the mountains embraced the beauty of sunrise. Yet there was a light feeling of anxiety and ire in the wind.. Something was not quite right in the atmosphere.

She flew over the sleeping ponyville underneath, over the vast Everfree Forest.
Lightly landing on a cliff rising above the treetops she took her final gaze into the nightly horizon before the daylight takes over.

Moon silently descended down behind the landscape like it didn't even care about the princess, seemed like it was not under her control anymore, rather escaping the sunlight by itself. For a glimpse it seemed to twist the sky around it, attempting to tear it down to the darkness of the horizon with it

"It has been quite a while, my beloved sister.. Will the stars aid your escape?" "

...

Well that was cheesy, I am a terrible writer, I know. Just wanted to give it a try and bolster the mood somehow

Anyway, ~KeinZantezuken asked for me to draw Celestia in her benevolent, normal side. I already had a slight idea of drawing Celestia to "oppose" my Nightmare Moon picture so.. Yep.

I took some artistic freedom and reworked her style, especially the necklace a bit to strengthen the "bond" between this and NM. While the NM pic was overall dark, cold and sharp in style, I tried to make this luminous, warm and soft. Basically I went for some kind of a mirroring theme between these two

...I stumbled with contrasts and lighting, couldn't get them right looking whatsoever and just left it like this, meh.

Hi, would you be willing to let me use this as a background for a song I'm writing? Credit will be given, of course.

I'll be your world's defender if I have to, Celestia. But I still have Dimension 3 to go back to. Eventually...

This is so super-suppy-pinkie-pie awesome.
I love the way you've drawn the landscape.
It reminds me of The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess.

Hey your art is definitely unique and interesting, and don't let yourself think that you write terribly either, no matter which you do art or writing they both take time to get what you want out of it and just the way you want it. Try writing again, sometimes it takes me a long time to word something right because it just might not sound right. And like you would tweak a picture I always go back and edit what I write.

Love the picture!

Looks awesome!

If I could complain about anything, though, the trees seem a bit small in scale.

Aside from that, it's great!
