She loves ALL her subjects by sgtgarand She loves ALL her subjects by sgtgarand
Princess Celestia loves all her subjects, and I do mean "all."
And this means YOU, the viewer.


Since a lot have seemed to take this the wrong way and see it as creepy, and mainly because it became blatantly obvious that there was a face, when viewed on a lower res. monitor(for some unknown reason), I just decided to remove the face. I am ecstatic with how adorable Celestia turned out and wouldn't want it to be marred by mixed responses to the face reflection.

--------

Woooo, finally got around to drawing Celestia. I'm pretty happy with how she came out. And dat mane.... :phew:

blatantly obvious that there was a face? I don't think I understand.

I had a reflection of a face in her eye. It was barely noticeable on my Mac's screen, but when I viewed it on my PC it was really noticeable..which isn't the effect I wanted, so I just went in and colored over it since it was confusing a lot of people anyways and was being viewed as "creepy"

And I agree, that's how she is usually portrayed...if at all. I'll admit that it can be hilarious, but I like this side of her better.

I heard that making a face more cartooney will make the viewer fill in the gaps with their own image. Their own face. Making it more empathetic.

And what kind of expression did you want the face to make? What do you want the viewer to feel from looking at the image, then seeing the face in her eye?

Besides, let's be honest, this is actually a pretty great creepypasta image. XD

It's not meant to make an expression. Just merely a placeholder that can be easily recognized. The idea is to make it practically unnoticeable until you view the larger version and get close enough to the screen to really see it. And what the viewer is suppose to see is a human reflection(them) and the feeling they should get is that Celestia loves them too.

I guess I just failed at the implementation of the whole idea since everyone seems to deem it creepy rather than the touching gesture it was meant to be.

NOEZ! That's exactly what I'm talking about!
I like it. I like the concept. And when I learned what you actually wanted to do with it, I liked it even more!

It feels more like the face is INSIDE her eye, than a reflection. More accurately, the viewer cannot see themselves as the face. Because the face is too detailed. If it could be a face anyone can look and project themselves to that face, the will see that they are the subject of Celestia's love. Celestia also looks kinda trolly. I wonder if the excessive pink and the cliche heart make gives this feeling that there is something dark beneath the surface. But I don't know about that.

All I know is the face just has to look less scary, that's all. Hey, I'm not that ugly! XD I look cooler than that!

I guess to me, the face's expression looks kinda scared. Unfortunately this leads my mind to Molestia(damn you JJ!). Maybe if the face was smiling? or smirking?
Besides that, I really love the idea behind this, and Moles- I mean CELESTIA, looks great! :D

Sorry about that.
The idea is for it not to be a pony or other animal.

I missed that till I saw it pointed out.
I have to admit, it's a cool concept.
Good job on it, but man...
That face definitely fell down the uncanny valley.
Don't stop being awesome though!

lol definitely one of the more colorful comments i've received.
I will admit the first attempt was a fail. lol If only I were better with faces, and reflections. Hopefully this new version isn't as bad. At least it can't be seen unless you look at it just right...at least that's how it is on my screen. I have to view it from an angle to see it.
Anyways, thanks for the comment!

:iconmlpnyxplz: (Nyx rox)

I do love the concept, but if I had to say who the rev 1 face reminds me of, it'd be Ron Perlman from that old "Beauty and the Beast" TV series from the 80s. I do see that you changed the face. It's a bummer that the original came off as weird to people, because I can't reiterate enough how awesome the concept was...
:iconbeastplz: (crap wrong beast, reroll) :iconeveryponyshrugplz:

My only bummer, is although I was able to find an awesome face Rainbow Dash,
I COULD NOT FIND an awesome face Luna or an awesome face Celestia...
And that is NOT awesome! Y U no have awesome face Princess Ponies DA???
