Most welcome. I've had my art stolen and even sold before so I understand.

May I repost this on pony art gallery? This is one of the better celestia humanized portraits out there. Of course I'll give credit and put links down for your DA account and this specific submission.

I love how pretty she looks, especially the lips. She looks real, yet at the same time she doesn't. It's really captivating, I love her long lashes too! She looks godly, which I assume you were going for, right? It fits her perfectly, nice job. The colouring looks amazing too, her hair looks so silky. But I really like the way you coloured the crown, the shading on it is gorgeous!

Oh, and I really really love all of that diffuse lighting you put into the crown. That's awesome.

I feel like she needs a little more color in her skin, otherwise this isn't bad. I like the way the eyes were made and the little sun emblem that really emphasize who this is.

Somewhat related, if you don't mind me asking, does the skin look quite pink to you? I just got a new monitor today and it seemed more yellow/neutral yesterday.

Thanks (:

The colors looks like it has more neutral tones on my monitor. Like, the effect a midday overcast light would have on skin, though not that severe. I do see the use of some complimentary colors around the edges of the skin and on the shadows. The skin as a whole, I don't actually see that much yellow or pink. Here's a photo that resembles the skin tones to me [link] I'm guessing you were aiming for this kind of skin tone? [link]

And I don't mind you asking, if you feel your monitor has some color calibration issues do take the time looking into it. :)

Oh that's interesting. I wasn't aiming for the second, but I wasn't aiming for the first either. I was aiming for a sort of royal-portrait-painting, like this:
[link] (sorry for the huuuge link) So sort of neutral, pale, with some mild cast shadows. I asked about the pink because, for example, if I compare my painting to the one I linked, mine looks very pink, too pink. Interesting! (:

Oh no, the links I shared wasn't meant for composition ideas. I was just pointing out the skin tones that I was observing.

Ok. I can see the direction you were going with this. Side by side my eyes are playing tricks on me too. Though I don't see the pink you are mentioning, I guess its a difference in our monitor calibrations. In a private note I sent you an edit I made highlighting the skin, I adjusted it to kinda mimic your example.

no, I didn't think you meant composition wise, I was talking about the skin tones/lighting, too. (:

Thanks! I'll go check my notes

Wow, gorgeous! Her hair and eyes are fantastic! My only complaint is that she doesn't look as kind as she is. As the Element of Harmony and an obviously altruistic princess, I would picture her smiling, you know?
