Thanks! :D It was great to meet so many people who liked my stuff. This print was by far my most popular. I only had the display copy left at the end. :o

If you want to know what happiness looks like, this is it. Sunset light captured in the clouds along with Tia's face. The mane and body language is relaxed and energised. Well done /)

Celestia... happy?! Not happy in a serene motherly way, or a weird pervy way, but just getting out and loving life?

Unique!

What's up with the reflection on the shoes? Where is the desaturated purple coming from?

That's from the warmer sky closer to the sun. I used the color from the top left.

Oh, this is delightful! You've improved dramatically with the placement of the armor/regalia, and the way her hair is whipping around with the wind...Oh, this is just so pleasant to look at. Very well done!

I saw this pop up on EQD, and I was like, "Wait, I was just on your page a day ago and I don't remember this, but it REALLY looks stylistically familiar." In any case, yay more of your art!

I don't know how much you're intentionally going for this effect, but I have to say I really love the shading contrast between Celestia and her mane/tail here—the soft shadows on Celestia vs. the hard shadows elsewhere. The elements almost look like they're completely different pieces of work, and the combined effect of having them both here (and tied together) feels a bit like Celestia leaving a 2D image for a 3D one. Artistically, I kind of want that effect to be more pronounced than it is, because it's so cool and here it's subtle enough that it's kind of easy to miss. But either way, I really like this piece.

Well, the way I think about it, terminator hardness is more often a function of the surface it falls on than the light causing it, and hair is more of a large collection of sharp corners than a smooth round surface like a body. Of course, another reason my tails tend to look flatter than the rest of things is they're usually the last part I get to, and by that time I'm so tired of the piece that I just want to throw down some scribbles and post the darn thing already. Either way, the effect is at least partially intentional, and isn't meant to make them look separate so much as just different materials.

Again you notice me by my signature style. Honestly I'm not terribly sure what that is, especially in this piece, where I tried approaching a few things a bit differently, but I'm glad you're still interested. Hug
