The Stars, The Moon by Longinius-II The Stars, The Moon by Longinius-II
If there ever was an extended universe show about the past of Celestia and Luna and all that jazz, I'm sure people would go crazy with it.

FINALLY this thing is finished, it took me ages to draw it, and colouring it took so long. I'm still not as efficient with photoshop I use way too many useless layers just in case I screw something up and all.

I always thought that Celestia had plans for Twi when she found her and all. (And despite what people say I will forever love Celestia) Talent like that manifests for a reason after all.

I hope you guys like the pic as much as I do. 8D

While still good artwork, equine hind legs can't bend like that. But as I see in the comments, you've already acknowledged you made a mistake. It happens, and can easily be forgiven. ;)

The toning you drew into them is quite interesting, I really like it. After all, a horse is pure muscle.

Simply incredible.... The moon shape of Luna in the background, perfection, and the tears in Celestia's eyes really sets the mood of the scene. Makes you wonder how hard it must have been to be away from your one and only sister for far to long of time.

hadn't considered it, but this makes it seem inescapable.
while mentoring Twilight, Celestia *had* to have been thinking about her little sister all the time.

Excellent. I love these kinds of photos that show the affection the characters have for each other.

I've always felt like Celestia and Twilight have an almost mother-daughter relationship.

I really like the picture as a whole, but the detailing and shading on Celestia is just phenomenal, quite possibly the best I've ever seen in any picture of her.

This is a beautiful picture <3 I just love all the details, for example the decoration on Celestia's crown and the pages of the books. Just beautifully detailed. However my only problem must be Celestia's hindlegs. The way they are laid just looks odd :/ But other than that it looks lovely <3

Thank you very much, happy you liked the details. I put in a few little things I felt appropriate, like the scroll on the ground has the crustal image that represents the elements of Harmony. 8D

Yeeeeaaaaah, I know... The hind legs are completely wrong, and I'm embarrassed about it, but I didn't want to scrap the whole image for that reason, I noticed the mistake a bit too late. >___> Oh well, live and learn.

I do, you did a very fantastic job on this piece <3 Yeah I saw that, I just love minor details like that, it's what makes the picture more complete :)

Yeah a bit, I can see how you wanted them to be, but it didnt fully get there. Dont worry though, we all make mistakes, and besides that lil error, this picture is stunning <3 Keep up the good work!
