“Mythology meets MLP as the roman goddess Epona, also known as “The Divine Mare”, brings the two sisters Celestia and Luna into existence from a sea of chaos to watch over the newly formed world of Equestria”
I am not so good at writing critique but I must say, brilliant work. The concept about Epona as the goddess who created those two sisters in the time of chaos. Really perfect combination on My Little Pony mythology and roman mythology. To the picture itself. The colors and atmosphere is setting really good especially how you let Celestia look like a newborn star, going off into a bright flame before she is able to control her own power, and the same is with Luna who looks like she need her time to get together, like a new moon who need time to getting larger and fully. Also the concept of Epona is lovely, like a lovely mother and still a being much more higher as that. And the Planet, so chaotic, darkness and distortion. When I remember what was said in the second season in MLP FIM, that Celestia and Luna came to Equestria in a Time where Chaos as Discord reigned.
The only thing what could be as a minus could be the point, that your images have a lot of power, but this is more calm. Showing a different side of your ability as artist. And for that being different as normal, you getting a extra point.
I had been wondering why so many people drew Celestia and Luna's mother as a white pony with a long, straight, red mane and tail. Now I understand completely. :3 The concept here is so amazing, and the artwork is beautiful. The crossing of styles is clashing yet harmonious at the same time! for sure.
I feel terrified by this picture! Apparently we have the same vision of the birth of Alicorns and their fantastic powers. The flames in Celestia's hair reflect her youth, the space their divine and cosmic powers.
