A vector drawing based on an idea I've had for quite some time, but—besides a quick chalkboard sketch—hadn't worked out further. Most creative work was done during the pencil sketching phase. After that the vectoring process went surprisingly quickly. Almost all of this was done in one afternoon and evening.
I love working on these abstracted works, because It allows me to cheat on things like anatomy. Not that I don't like figuring out anatomy, but dropping that restriction lets you focus on a different kind of aesthetic.
So, what is Celestia doing here? Maybe she's raising the sun. Or maybe that yellow flare is some other magic she's performing mid-flight. I just drew it because it looks neat.
