Commission - Brightest Star by Longinius-II Commission - Brightest Star by Longinius-II
- Not part of Luna's Shadow Army, nor the Royal Guard of Celestia, but standing amidst both. Twilight's Sentinels move between ponies, walking freely amongs the shade, and reflecting brilliant light. Outside of combat they are normal ponies who live love and laugh just as all.... But in the throes of war, they have sworn that Equestria will Prevail.

Last commission for :icontwilightismagic: of their OC Starbright.

So yeah. this is. THE. BEST. THING. EVER!
Just look at it, just... look at it. XD Sorry for gushing but I am so happy about how this one came out. I got really excited playing around with metals and lighting effects, and thanks to my long bit of being sick I had a lot of pent-up inspiration and I wanted to really push myself with it! I hope you guys like it, i couldn't be happier, and Twilight is a wonderful commissioner being so patient with me. Thank you. :D

Enjoy, I'm off to go colour something else, I feel pretty good today man. XD

This is very lovely!
The intense expression and the pose of the body really gives it a sensation of movement and life. The detail in the fabric, clothing, shading is so intense and angled perfectly to match the lighting of the image and the movement. Magic is beautiful, it isn't too bright or obnoxious but it stands out and contrasts quite nicely :) The eyes are delightful. I'm a sucker for pretty eyes.

I am curious as to what the background is aside from the sky obviously. Are those clouds or sand? However I do like the warriors you sneaked into the background :)
What do you think?

Sounds accurate man. XD
Did I hear a WOAH? Yes, I did.

You have all the rights to be happy about your artwork. Because it is an amazing one. Gosh! I love the details you put in this with the armor the armors, hooves protectors and the cape. But if there is one that took my eye is the horn protector. It's the first time I see this. I love it.

You did an amazing work on this.

Yay! Happy you like it. :D

I am so proud of it, even if there is a lot I can still improve on. but it's a great step forward with metals, and backgrounds. <3
I think I have seen similar things, but they are usually part of larger more extensive helmets, I wanted to try and use something that was lighter. :D

Thank you again. :D
