...every time i see an aurora borealis in some MLP art, i can basically hear my main OC going "HEY! I THINK THATS MY WORK!", since...that's what she does. make aurora borealii. >.> it gets a little annoying, sometimes.
This is a really beautiful piece with unique character design and many elements of artistic mastery! I really love the expression and proportion that you used for the character design! The environment really resonates with the overall idea and the pose adds a sense of motion and adds a wonderful movement to the entire piece! The lighting around the mane and your subtle shading with various colors is done beautifully!
