Dear Princess Celestia by RuffyYoshi Dear Princess Celestia by RuffyYoshi
Phew, this took long. But it's worth it! :la:

I'm gonna make a high resolution version of this for my soon-to-be-born niece to post on her wall as a painting. :) I think Celestia's hair took the longest because I couldn't figure out what to do with it. I wanted it to transition into the sky somehow. I like how it all looks.
Also the contrast difference between my desktop computer and laptop annoys me. ^^;

Enjoy, fellow Bronies.

:{D  Ah, this is fantastic!  Especially with the clouds placed as they are around Celestia.  Really adds depth to the piece.

Well done bro! You surely managed to keep shapes rounded and adorable. It'll make a great poster for your niece!

By the way what's the lesson being written on the letter?

So cute. :) And I love how you put Celestia in the background there, both literally and as a metaphor.

Meanwhile Celestia is pulling that whole "Look towards a brighter future" propaganda poster look on the background which, by the way, looks awesome!

AND If we could get that with some royal guards flying below her in formation and the text

"Join the Royal Guard, Celestia's Finest" That would blow my mind! :D

The whole scene is really great!
I like how Celestia's mane is mixed with the blue sky :)
Spike looks cute and his feet are a bit different but funny!

Wow!

This may sound a bit odd as a random comment on one of your pictures, but :iconanjilasaurus:'s pony art is the gold standard as far as I'm concerned. This fan art, at a glance, is right up there with hers.

Looking at it closer, it may even be better. The eyes don't look creepy in spite of their sheer size, the lines and expressions are great, and the background is absolutely fantastic (especially your Celestia, who's easily the prettiest Celestia I've ever seen).

Bravo sir.

Though I'm not competing with anyone, I'm still very happy if people see my work on the same level as anvil or Luna. It's a huge deal for me since I never thought I could match them. :)

Normally, not my cup o' tea. But seeing just how amazingly well done it is, I think I can fave it for once. XD Awesome work, dude. I'm really drooling on how well you did the background and how you had her hair merge into the skyline. Altogether, this is a really well-made piece. Keep up the great work! ^^

I've gotta say, this looks pretty great. You've got a swell thing going on here, and I thank you for the cool share in general; your style with Spike especially makes me grin, for some reason.

Keep up the great work.
