Sun Princess by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen Sun Princess by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
I don't know why but Celestia feels so...different in this drawing. Thought I still have problems drawing ponies' face front, so probably that's why. Thought, in all, I'm happy how this drawing came out.^^

This piece will have a pair with Princess Luna. Hope I can get to it soon.

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

Both her front hooves are up. She'd be completely off balance and unable to stand (Unless those wings are flapping). This is not to be a nitpicker, but you said it feels different. That discrepancy makes it look off to me. Thought you might be seeing it.

Maybe it's the lack of her armor/jewelry. Either way, this is a beautiful piece.
cajobif Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
Wonderful work.

I like that you gave her a coat (fur) and large wings
lzsmith88 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
very creative! i like seeing Celestia like this, at an almost halfway point. good work!
arkane32 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Yes, this is, indeed, the Celestia every Equestrian reveres. And look at her. Clearly in her glory, yet so tender, loving and motherly... how could one not worship her, just to look at her?
schneelocke Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Yeah, I think it's her face that makes her look different, first and foremost - she's got a rather broad face here, with prominent cheekbones and a shortish muzzle, which is quite different from what pony's faces usually look like when viewed from the front. The colors, the fuzziness of her fur and her lack of her usual regalia probably also contribute, as they all take away the subtle clues that usually say "it's Celestia!".

That said, I'm not criticizing any of it! It's a lovely drawing, and doubly so because it's not quite "the usual". :)
SwiftestShadow Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Celestia's Ascendance.

This, right here, is why the ponies of Equestria reveres her.
Well done.

I think she looks marvelous, except for her cheeks being a little too puffy imho.

Pair this with Amaterasu from the game Okami (for the Wii) and you have a winner, my friend. Two sun deities in one picture! I want it!

Part of me wants to welcome her with open arms...but another part wants to HURRY OUT OF THE WAY.

Which part do you think I should listen to?

Great job!
And I can barely wait for more Luna.

Wow! This looks great! I love your use of lighting. I think her muzzle might be a bit too round on the sides.:iconrarityhoofinmouthplz: Maybe that's what feels off just a bit in the front view? I'm still practicing drawing ponies myself, so constant practice and tweaking is all I can recommend for now. Overall, awesome work!
Back to drawing! :iconrollinrarityplz:

TwilightIsMagic Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Student General Artist
I think she feels different because you applied your style to her appearance. Her face is "fuller" than normal, a bit wider and certainly a lot fuzzier and softer-looking. However, I still recognize her based on her face along, which, I believe, is due to her eye shape being her normal one. Speaking of the eyes, I love how you did them. Together with the smile, the tones of the picture and the soft appearance of her coat, they result in her face brimming with benevolent warmth and her personal joy.
This picture is quite interesting. The most curious detail is the way Celestia's hair shifts from solid pink into the familiar ethereal appearance, and it almost seems to sheathe the non-ethereal one. Is there a story behind it? But either way, I simply adore the way her hair appears lit up by the sun behind her. The darker thick strands and the lighter thin ones look wonderful. So does the way it curves in the air.
Those wings are no less amazing. The double row of 'end' feathers looks majestic, and the smaller feathers look soft and quite pleasant. The lighting playing on their edges enhances the impression further. The same goes for her body. As for her pose, it's interesting as well—it is not clear to me whether she is running or rising into the air, but it certainly feels triumphant and impressive either way. It makes me think she's achieved some personal triumph, something she is very happy about.
Overall, it's a marvellous picture. Great job! Great job indeed!
