Happy Birthday Nicole Oliver! :iconpartycannonplz:
-I'm trying out a bit of a new style here, so I'm actually gonna ask for some honest critiques on this one. [Critiques in the comments are fine too]

--This is one of my first times using Paint tool SAI. Combined with my new graphics tablet, sketching feels extremely smooth and I like how this one turned out. I may do more "Graphic-novelish" projects like this in the near future.

Ignore my ratings, cause it's my first time doing this :\ xD
I really love how it looks a lot. I love how it looks foggy, and that her mane is only one color. To me, it almost looks like this image is in between the current time in MLP and before whatever happened 1000 years ago with Discord and Sombra.

The wings look good, even though they aren't in show style. I would've left the second shorter row out, but either way it looks fine.

The crown's got a weird look though, like it's in a weird perspective. But as an artist myself, I competely understand how hard it is to get things perfect.

Overall though, it looks great, and is one of my favorite images now. ^^
What do you think?

Ok, how do I put this? I first saw this work in the messages section and I gotta tell it looks AMAZING . . .

First I notice the coloring, so simple . . . but its got touch, Celestia's coloring is what captivates me the most here, the coloring of the areas where there is shadow, and how simple it is, so is that bit of fog in the scenery.

Next, I notice the lines, how splendid of how you made her hair, feathers and the "scaly" tiles on the towers and evel the metalwork holding the crystalline ball on top, or whatever it is. .

I also love how you made those shadows and where it sun's rays are supposed to be in, I can also notice sun rays through the piece, giving me that "through my eyes" view of this, the windy conditions also give the life I'm trying to find in it

Man, I gotta tell you that this may not be the only things I can tell you, but I'm amazed with your work from almost every detail. Sorry if this critique I'm giving is kinda bad, because this is the first time I've ever done one. . .

Anyway, awesome and I love it :)

I love the detail you were able to put into the feathers while still keeping it within a cartoony, show-like style! The soft colors make the picture and Celestia seem young, which is what you were going for, I'm sure, right? The soft lines help to make the picture feel relaxed and peaceful, and her mane flows along beautifully in a wind that, while we cannot see it, we can feel through the details.

wonderful piece! +fav'd

So what's with the gray mane?
RegolithX Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A lot of people commonly draw Celestia with a pinkish-gray mane when she was "Younger". I liked the idea for this particular project...

Plus I REALLY didn't want to draw her multicolored mane here.
