WIP: [link]
Approx Time: 4 hours

Title already gives a slight description to this piece. Let your thoughts flow

This has been one of my ideas floating around for a while now. Creating a bust in some way. I usually connect it with royal characters. And then ~TheDashDub came along with his Album Art Contest
I thought that would be a great incentive to pick this up, make it a multi-purpose piece and such.

Edit: His album is up! you can check it out here: [link] or on his youtube: [link] or watch the ""Royal" Full EP" here: [link]

No words can describe how awesome this is. One of the most creative ideas I've seen.

may I use this for a cover? It's quite amazing and well done but it gives something subtle from it and I wanted to know if I could use it first of all.

With any non-commission fan-art I'd be more then happy to say yes.
Even though I'd be fine with it, in this case some of the motivation behind this was also meant for ~TheDashDub 's album. :)
Maybe I'm looking too much into it, rendering me somewhat indecisive.

I guess if it doesn't directly "compete" or conflict with his use of the cover it should be fine.
(But I don't know what his view on it is. In the case where he'd prefer not, then I'd go with that)

Alright. Thank you.

They look quite stern as stone busts. I suppose there is some merit in that, as royal trappings are usually supposed to inspire respect and a touch of intimidation in those that view them. But there is something sad about this depiction of cold royal power, particularly since it includes Twilight who was recently swept into that world at a young age.

Brilliant piece!

I absolutely adore the way the contrast between the busts depict the difference between 'new' and 'old'. Starting with the statured, regal wisdom of Celestia, to the open-eyed eagerness of Twilight.

I could stare at this for hours. What are the possibilities this could be released in a higher resolution for wallpapers?
