I...I simply can't express the levels of /awesome/ that this is. I've seen a lot of good shit, but this is one of the finest pieces I've laid eyes on.

Vision: Your vision is amazing, you had the idea to create a royal gown for her, and succeeded with flying colours. A gown like that can't help but give that royal, 'important', feeling that one should look for from their princess.

Originality: I've simply never seen anything like this before...infact, this is the first picture I've seen with Celestia in clothing/ a dress.

Technique: Shading, colouring, detail, texture, what /didn't/ you do well? I can't see anything that I'd call a flaw in the technique of this piece.

Impact: I saw this, and immediately began typing this critique. If that's not impact, i don't know what is.

I have been gathering your work as reference material for my drawing practices, so you could imagine the excitement I felt when I saw your work. Especially when I am writing my very first critique for this piece.

Princess Celestia in royal attire/dress is a subject explored by many other artists before, with varying degrees of detail and/or success. The challenge for drawing on that subject always comes in three; the body and pose, physical design of the dress, and color scheme of the entire composition. An artist trying to capture her regal beauty would know that the work will be done only by pushing oneself to get those three parts up to his/her satisfaction. (This may be applied to any other drawing that depicts a pony in formal attire, if I humbly add.)

Her body and pose are as impressive as always. One thing that particularly stands out in your work is the muscular structure you give to the ponies, making them stand out with more depth while giving them more body mass needed to support the limbs and the head. I should say you are one of the few artists that can compare to ECMajor or Noel in that regard. Her emphasized right eye, smile, wings and the forward triangle formed by the amethysts indicate confidence, while her steps show the subtle control she has on her motion.

Your design of her dress is the best I have ever seen. Since I have absolutely no experience in designing clothes whatsoever, I would just say it is a huge achievement to put together individual pieces of clothes on a pony and make then NOT look like lingerie. I think it's the straight collar, contrasted with the deliciously detailed creases and wrinkles on the rest of her dress, that did the job. The sheen and gloss of jewelry is also very fitting and beautiful. I am wondering if the sharp tips of the jewelry would be a bother, but I will leave that to your discretion.

The color scheme is as lovely as the rest of the piece. The creamy color of the dress makes the entire composition look warm and soft, while the amethysts and her eye stand out and accentuate the otherwise uniformly warm picture. Overall, it is very easy and pleasant for the eye to see the entirety of her form.

The only improvement I could think of would be to make the wings larger with additional layers of feathers, perhaps exaggerating it a bit so that it can fill the center of the picture even further.

I will look forward to your future work with great anticipation.

I know right? I guess that was the main reason Celestia didn't have a dress in that episode. Seeing how it's bad manners to upstage the bride. :D

You've already drawn an amazing Luna.

You did it again with this amazing piece of Celestia. Gosh! The physical aspect and muscles make it such appealing to the eyes. And I'm still not talking about the dress and royal attires!

You truly deserve honors for this piece and the time you took for drawing it. And like about Luna's piece, they are both among my most favorites of fan art of them.

^w^ Thanks you very much, I'm happy you like this (and the Luna pic too).

I'm happy people are liking the musculature, it's alwaus nice to know. :)

Makes me happy that I can create something that makes you happy as well. Thank you very much. :)
