I've been thinking about something. Even though most of us don't realize it we actually know a lot of members of Celestia and Luna's family. Think about it, the show said that prince Blueblood is the nephew of Celestia and Cadence is her niece. Cadence is married to Shining Armor which means, by relation, Celestia would also be apart of his family. She isn't only Twilight Sparkel's teacher now, but she is also related to her. Wouldn't that mean that Celestia and Luna are sort of like Twilight's aunts as well or something?
Also... Oh my god 0.0 Twilight is Prince Blueblood's cousin!
I look at this picture, with Princess Celestia patching Smartypants up for a filly Twilight, and I think ""; and then I see Luna's picture on the Princess's desk, realize that at this point Luna is still trapped inside Nightmare Moon (herself sealed in the moon, with at least a decade still left to go before her escape), and I think ""; then I see the heart-shaped frame surrounding the picture, showing that Celestia still cares for her sister.
It's a mix of emotions, Twilight looks heart-broken but at the same time shes happy and maybe even excited that Smarty Pants is being patched up, and the look on Celestia's face of "Happy to help" is as genuine as it can get. Keep up the good work.
Everything about this is adorable! I love how Twily's eyes are tearing up. "Don't worry Twilight. Celestia will make Smarty Pants good as new (or at least get him back to where he was before he was torn)"
There is something terribly appealing in the image of an extremely powerful and nigh-immortal princess fixing a toy. This work is so delightful that I could not suppress the urge to say, "Squee!" out loud when I first saw it!
I do have a few criticisms, though. Overall, the image is a bit too busy, and I think that the lack of contrast in colors between the foreground and the background leave the image a bit murky. Furthermore, while the style works well enough, and does have a nice impressionistic feel, there is a certain degree of refinement lacking from the image...It looks like an advanced study, rather than a finished work.
Also, I would argue that the crayon drawing is a bit redundant, and the portrait of Luna is a bit confusing, but these are minor quibbles.
Overall, I think this is a wonderful and delightful work (understand, I do not normally criticize artwork here unless I really like the piece in question thank you for sharing it!
