The Rise of Celestia by Jamey4 The Rise of Celestia by Jamey4
Celestia stood in front of her newly recruited guards on the shore of an ocean far to the west of Canterlot. She is in body armor as per tradition of the initiation of new royal guards.
"I am pleased to welcome you all into the service of Equestria. Now, do any of you have any questions before we head back to Canterlot?"
One of the guards asks to see her bring the day to Equestria.
Celestia smiles and says "It's rare that I show this tradition to anyone besides my sister, but I suppose I could give you a small idea of what I do."
She flies out to the ocean while the guards watch from the beach. *cue picture*

I can do ocean water correctly now :D I love how the lighting in this one turned out. The biggest pain was the water itself, but I eventually got it to work after many hours. Let me know if Luna or if another character should get something like this made for them.

WOW Just... WOW
That Water is AMAZINGLY Well done And Celestia looks amazing too

The Sun too the Reflection is near perfection the Sky is amazing
All in All the Vision and Technique just blew me away 5 Stars

Originality too cause I've never seen a drawing like this one before I mean granted you're drawing a Licensed Character but I still give this 5 Stars
(Cause i'm not even sure that has anything to do with anything)

Like I said this drawing blew me away so Impact 5 also
Congratulations you're the first person i've ever given all fives too

You should do something like this for Cadence and Shining Armor.
It's beautiful!
