MLP: Sun Princess by BellaCielo MLP: Sun Princess by BellaCielo
A companion piece to [link]

So, I finally got around to doing that Princess Celestia painting. The princess wasn't as difficult to work on as I thought she'd be (once I figured out how to properly shade and highlight her light coat and mane/tail) but the background was difficult. I never got it quite like my mind envisioned it, which bothers me.

Also, this is kind of a belated Christmas gift for my bf... though I ended making something else for him since I couldn't print this one properly. The extremely light/bright color scheme isn't captured very well in paper form. >>;;

As much as I enjoy the style of this piece, I'm more impressed by the clouds.

I still haven't completely figured out color yet and this piece will be worth remembering.

nothing ever turns out like it does in your mind. but you have no need to think that, since this looks kickass. ^^

Agreed, but it's still annoying when something doesn't turn out quite like you want it to. I'm glad you like it, though. :3

Thank you so much! It was difficult at first (since lighter color schemes tend to be more difficult to shade and highlight than darker ones) but after awhile I sort of got the hang of things. :)

There are way too many emoticons in this thing. :brushteeth:.
