My goodness, this is a very beautiful piece of art. You have given her much personality. She looks very majestic and powerful, yet graceful and delicate.

The colour and detail in this is absolutely beautiful. The light green contrasts with the orange in the background and definitely shows itself. However, her unicorn horn seems to blend with with magic surrounding it, making it slightly hard to tell the difference between her horn and the magic. Otherwise, this is very well done and there is not much negative to be said about this at all!

You've given this image so much room for the viewers to give her a story. What is she looking at? What is she using her magic for? Perhaps she is using her magic to make the sun rise? It's up to the viewer to decide what she is doing which makes this piece very intriguing.

The detail in this piece looks nearly like a watercolour painting. The texture you've given it makes Princess Celestia appear somewhat realistic, especially in her mane. However, you have also slightly stuck with the original design of this ruler of Equestria which is what makes this extremely impressive. The shading is also rather amazing, rather than using greys and blacks to shade, which is what I see alot of times, you've chosen to use pinks and purples for her shadows. It makes her look so much more magical!

Overall, this is a beautiful piece of artwork with lots of creativity, depth, and magic! I'm looking forward to seeing more from you!

I can honestly say that you have crafted one of my new favorite pieces of Celestia art! I really appreciate the fact that you crafted this on a canvas as it shows your artistic skill very well! The character design is done incredibly well and your line work is refined beautifully! I also love your exquisite use of soft textures as well as how it resonates with the light and gorgeous color work! The flowing color in her mane really brings this piece to glorious life with an abundance of vivacious motion and artful mastery! The shading is also very lovely and contrasts magnificently with the flawless shading! If I have any criticism about this piece it would have to be that I would have liked to see a bit more emotion displayed in her expression, but other than that this is a very well refined and fantastically crafted piece of art! I would love to see more! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Celestia is so underrated by the fandom, and is overrated by Hasbro.

I want to give Celestia some love.

Luna gets too much...

Luna is sooo unteraded by Hasbro :D
I wish she would make some more appearances in the future

I wish Celestia and Luna would both play their own parts in the fandom and in episodes.

Wow...this is just an any other Celestia drawing, but...totally different, if that makes sense. I mean, Celestia's not doing anything different, just standing around and swirling her hair around =P, but the style of it just catches my eye immediately. :heart:
