Troubles on the swamps by Bonaxor Troubles on the swamps by Bonaxor
Well I think I did a good job with this picture. I finally took some time to work on the BG and I like the results even if its dark. A next step forward on the path of making cartoons :D

And If I did everything right, this picture should speak for itself. For a note, this is young Celestia.

Tell me what you think about it and HUGS FOR EVERYBODY THAT FAV THIS WORK :D

Wonderful picture :). The work you put into it really shows. I love the thought that's gone into this as well; the way her hair and tail have the flowing look that's so integral to her adult look but without the magical colouring that she's clearly not grown into yet, the careful detail in the environment, the use of light...

I'm a sucker for pictures with a lot of darkness :P

There are only two aspects of this picture that stick out to me as not quite right. One, the tree in the foreground on the right isn't lit right. The light looks like it's on the side and the back even though the light source is in front of it. Also, it has the effect of making the tree look a little flat. The other point is that Celestia's neck looks a little long. It's the same length as her body and just looks a little odd. That's a minor issue though. Proportions and anatomy are just something I'm picky about.

Really nice picture though, keep it up and thanks for making them :D

Amazing pic. It brings a bit of mortality to the being who is supposed to be a deity. It shows that even though she is powerful, Celestia has the same fear of the dark, the primal fear of the unknown that is within all of us. All in all, you did a magnificent job on this. Then again, I say this about a lot of drawings that are good, mostly because I cant draw for crap.XD But good job in making this show Celestia as being afraid of the dark and here is hoping that you keep on doing what you do.

Reminds me of the scene in "Oz The Great and Powerful", when they first meet Glinda.

Cool! ThousandYearSunrise also went with pink for Celestia's 'non-full power' hair color. Is this standard for filly Celestia, or just happy coincidence?

Really like this image, By the look on her face and the fact that shes in a swamp or bog makes me think she just saw a hydra.

Whatever is frightening her it must be tall.

This is nice work, reminds me of the dream story idea I had of Celestia involving something that she has a dark secret she's been holding for years.
