Princess of the Sun by QuizzicalKisses Princess of the Sun by QuizzicalKisses
Wanted to do a quick concept art about mountains, but after seeing this absolute gorgeous piece... (VERY NFSW)
[link]
I was inspired to do one about Princess Mol...I mean Celestia, Princess of the Sun. I imagine her raising the sun for the first time over what will be the new site for Canterlot.

Tried a lot of new things in this piece, I think it turned out pretty swell. Hope you guys like it!

They don't call she Sun Princess for nothing. Beauty color and great background.

Lovely picture, but is it just me, or is the tiara rather oddly proportioned and positioned? The forward edge seems to be floating in the air, and the whole thing is larger than her head.

I've been writing this story, and this fits so well I thought you might have read it. This is just ABSOLUTELY PERFECT from my prologue. The only part of it that has been edited into readability is here: [link] .

I hope you don't mind if I used this piece as my cover art.

Has your account been deactivated lately? I linked the source some time ago, but the link only showed up recently. It was unaccredited for the longest time, but it suddenly works now.

It's odd. I didn't change anything, but it just suddenly works. Maybe there was a bug in the site.

Very nice.

Reminds me a lot of the Walking Liberty on modern Silver Eagles.

why is she a princess? if you rule a nation and your a girl, your either a queen or a Empress (or madam president but we won't get into democratic systems)

Not if you rule a Principality.

Faust wanted to make her a queen, but Hasbro wanted her to be a princess.... If you're talking about that.

Okay, okay, this has many things to comment.
1) Very nice pic. The background is beautiful, and the grass looks great.
2) I love the way you made her wings. Very god-like.
3) Her dress seems to be about to fall. I am not sure if I like it (because its sexy) or I dont. (Because it kinda ruins the solemnity of the moment)

Now that's just beautiful. The plant life is very well done, and the background - while simple - works really well for the piece. The sun rays are a great touch. I also love how you handled the wings. The glow looks really nice. Celestia herself is great, especially the hair and dress.

This is gorgeous beyond all coherent reason. The background and foreground alone are the most beautiful I've seen in Pony fanart for more than a year, and Celestia herself is a vision of regal divinity. Take all of my favs. All of them.
