Butterflies by Akeahi Butterflies by Akeahi
I started this two weeks or so ago, I think, but then I just had to get sick and I kind of forgot about this, haha

Anyway, more background practice, yay

I initially wanted this to be autumn themed (favorite season) to celebrate October or something, but I dunno, I kind of doodled a butterfly and bam, we get Celestia and Twilight totally amazed by monarch butterflies instead

I like to draw Celestia naked without her regalia too much

Background highly and directly inspired by Disney's Brother Bear

You really think Celestia looks better without her regalia? So do I :)

Yup! Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever see her (or Luna and Cadance) without em' in the show too

Yeah. I admit I was disappointed when Luna woke up still wearing hers in that one episode.

The setting to this scene feels beautiful, happy, and peaceful! It doesn't feel like two princesses; it feels like two friends, just enjoying the moment for what it is!

You know, your art makes me think of exactly why I enjoy great artwork so much. I love how much your art makes me feel things; whether it's joy at adorable ponies, empathy for Celestia's sorrow, recalling the same feeling of awe when watching TLK for the first time. Your artwork touches me, and that's awesome. 

Thank you. :)

Heh, just what I intended!

I am so, so glad you enjoy my work and that it makes you feel things!
It's mainly the reason I bother to post all these, besides doing just what I enjoy, I'm happy my drawings can somehow communicate their mood or message to the viewer

But gosh, I am touched myself by these comments and I thank you for them, I'm honestly very flattered! and hope you can still enjoy my drawings in the future : )

Naked Celestia is very sweet, and more accessible as a pony. I like this. :)

Ooooh! I love the setting, the sunset scene. It's a great choice and adds to the mood of this scene.

Really neat seeing Twilight hanging with Princess Celestia. It'd be kind of neat to see them do stuff like this in the show.

Oh, I get it. 

They're ALL "monarchs".  XD

Very clever play on words there.

Also, I love the art style.  The coloring and shading is simple but very aesthetically pleasing.  And I love the ambiance of this scene.  I wish I could go there.  ^_^

Actually, that was entirely a coincidence, but now that you mention it... wow, I can't believe I missed that, haha!

Thank you so much!

I agree with your last statement. Her lack of her royal vestments make her seem more approachable. Big difference between the Princess of the Sun and Celestia, the friend you want to have.

If they make a Celestia-centric episode and happen to include this concept, I'm pretty sure I will flip

Awesome! This looks like a single frame from an animated film!

We can only hope the 2017 My Little Pony movie looks this good!

I believe it will, given how the animation overall has improved a ton, judging by the Friendship Games visuals
Thank you so much!

Oh, well i just can't see Celestia being a lesbian. I ship her with Discord. But everyone has their own opinion i guess. :iconpinkiepieshrugplz:
