Mare in the Moon by Famosity Mare in the Moon by Famosity
I wanted to draw Celestia.... again..... :heart:

I do so much experimenting with these pony pictures that it's not even funny....

This was supposed to be Celestia missing Luna when having to raise the moon every night as she waited out her sister's banishment.

You'll get your sister back soon, Tia

Celestia (C) Hasbro and Lauren Faust

This is absolutely beautiful! Both aesthetically and emotionally.... And heart-jerking too... Waaaah!  Love the gentle, yet dark, lighting on the piece! I realize it's a bit difficult to accomplish with the bright colors of Celestia, but you've done wonderfully! Love

I like the style of how Celestia is, it has this sketchy feel that always admire.

I hope you don't mind if I use this for a PMV I'm creating and planning to put on Youtube. I'll make sure that I'll provide a link to this page so people can know you're the original maker. Please reply if there's something you need to tell me.

I never thought of Celestia's Mane and tail being transparent, and it looks magnificent!
I also like the background she is in as well, it really seems like Luna's element yet Celestia is the one standing there.

I just hav to say, I've been following Star Catcher's tumblr for a little while now. It's one of, if not my ultimate, my favorite artistic pony blogs. But I had no idea you were capable of such beautiful works of art!!!! This is an outstanding piece and everything just looks perfect! I will definitely be watching on DA now to make sure I don't miss any of you amazing things, like this.

P.S. you should really post some of these epic pics on tumblr!!!

Aww!!!

At first I didn't understand why she was sad when I first saw the picture. However after I read the description it made me feel so sad for her! I'm glad that you wrote a story with your picture it really adds up nicely and becomes something deep, meaningful and beautiful. Good job in capturing the emotion. Even though it is a sad picture it's something that I've never really thought about before. So I'm really glad that you drew this picture, it's simply amazing.

Oh, sheesh! I was just looking at this picture and thinking how terrible all this must've been not just for Luna but for Celestia as well, really getting into a somber mood... and then I read your commment, and had to try damn hard to not shoot chocolate milk out of my nose. ;)

Sad Celestia Fics are some of the few stories in literature that make me cry. Especially those involving Twilight and Celly. Those stories are just touching and positively heartbreaking for me. Love the art style. Love the pic, and love Celestia. (and Twilight)
