Shared friendship and not lesbian shipping...

Enough said. Thank you, mister commissioner. Just thank you.

The Celestia mane outline fadeout is a fine idea for showing its ethereal quality. And I really like what you did for their shapes and their expressions here. Twi's chin seems to be a bit on the thick side to me, but it's fine, 'cause you managed a really, really awesome Celestia head.
Well done!

The jawline bothers me as well, but for a one hour commission I'm calling it good enough.

Ethereal mane... yes... that's it... not that I couldn't figure out a way to keep the symmetry of friendship without a fadeout.

Really, Celestia's mane dominates space, giving her all the authority of a sun goddess. It's appropriate for most moments, but this... not as much.

I can see how that could be a problem here, yeah. It'd only work if it were swept the other way, hidden by her body. And it would not have worked if it were the way you describe, so yes, wise move.

Art! It's a whole bunch of decisions made really quickly with longstanding consequences.

Art is hard.

Thanks for the super fast turnaround! You really captured the mood I had in mind. I love the ethereal, loosely rendered feel. Like a dream.

Question! Is this a good example of objects of two different colors existing in the same space? Just noticing how the light interacts with them.

A little bit, yes. Two separate colors (the ponies) existing in a shared space through unifying elements (the color of the highlight and shadows.) There's some nice stuff in here [link] on how any two colors *can* go together as long as they're properly separated but also unified. Separate colors are like two chemicals that can't mix till you put them both in water.

Thanks for the run down. Gotta get that harmony (or else much like chemicals, it will explode in your face?)
