I knew you could do it. by dreampaw I knew you could do it. by dreampaw
assdfl;khasdf;khajs;dkfjgasdg;lksjhdf my hand hurts :C

Whenever i get really excited about a piece, I just keep going and don't stop until it's done, even if it means I break my hand in the process :C

But anyway, this is for my very good friend :iconteithepony: , who made a song (which i listened to on loop for the duration of drawing this) in which this is the cover art for! I hope that you like it <3

I actually tried to NOT half-ass the background this time. I looked up references for sunsets and everything. Very proud of myself :'3

But really. I have finally done probably the most invloved piece for me since "I'm so sorry" and that's a good thing. Now I really want to play ocarina of time, or majora's mask. Maybe both. At the same time.

Everyone please tell me what you think! I put a lot of thought into this piece so if you give me criticism, I would like you to put a lot of thought into what you think I could fix or change about it as well, if you think I should <3

Thank you and I hope you like it!!

Okay let's do this in topics to make it easier :3

1- The grass: this is the best, really! It looks amazing, I can't even guess how long you took to make it this awesome :D

2- The sky: It looks great, I would suggest to make more of these "rays of light" and use some blur in the lines that you made in the rest of the sky though.

3- Celestia: she looks pretty realistic, her mane is great (and the colors too) also, I loved the little "star dots" that you added to it, she has an awesome expression (somewhat sad but faithful). Her wings are gorgeous (and big, I like them this way) and her crown and plate looks beautiful.

All in all, amazing work! (I even dare to say that it is your best so far :D) I would just do a little changes in the sky (the points that I talked about earlier)

This is great! I really love it. It's beautiful. I love Celestia's eyes and the detail of the feathers on her wings adds a nice effect to the drawing. Everything is well placed and it looks very alike to a song's cover. I love the sunset in the back, it's what caught my attention the most. The references you used were really helpful because the sunset is wonderful. The mix of colors is spectacular and you used a nice palette, and the clouds are like a topping to add more beauty to the whole. It's beautiful and it looks like you've added effort to it... A work always looks better when you actually put effort. The shading is great, and I don't see any visible mistakes...

So, in overall, the drawing is great. I love it. 5/5!!

There is a certain quality to this that I just cannot place. But I assure you that the quality I type to you about is of utmost beauty. I really adore her eyes which really pop out with a crystal-like property. You can see every feather on her wings which I respect because as someone who is still getting up there with her art, I have trouble with wings. The lighting is placed properly giving her a proper glow. And, finally, her mane which seems almost winglike in its own right as it fades out into the sunset. Well done with this. Truly.

Simply. glorious. :heart:

Really, I love the attention to detail here. Not a feather out of place, and her expression is wonderful. Love the wispy trails in her mane.

Fantastic work, really. :')

Very pretty. Is there a story behind this? Tears of sadness after Luna's banishment? Happiness after her return? Something else entirely?

This piece makes me cry with the sheer beauty of it... it seems to tell a story, though I'm not sure of what, but I sense shades of sadness, but also of happiness... I really love this piece.
