I love these designs. I can't decide which one I like better. YOu know what I always loved about CElestia? HER HAIR IS ALWAYS BLOWING IN THE NON-EXISTANT WIND.

I just can't get over how pretty this drawing is. The jewelry, their hair, their expressions! It's perfect.

(and plus I like the darker skin that you've given Celestia, it makes sense being as she is out in the sun all day and if she was super pale the hypochondriac in me would be worrying about skin cancer and demanding she put on some sun-block. ... It still is a little. .. but I think that's just me)

So then all humanized versions of the ponies have to be the same color as in the show? Awesome. Now let's draw humanized Rainbow Dash blue and Twilight Sparkle purple and Pinkie Pie pink...

I've easily become a fan of dark skinned Celestia and this piece is just lovely.
This would make a lovely outfit or cosplay!

(The arguments over this are kinda amusing)

Wow, this is WONDERFUL. Every bit of this picture rocks my socks in every way; the colors, the features, the clothing. All of its beautiful! And yes, I'm glad to see a NON-TROLL Celestia (even if she is not my favorite character in the series) and a Luna who looks more delicate than emo. On top of that, they look balanced in age and power in this one! FINALLY! Some Celestia/Luna picture that shows them as a sort of Yin/Yang of their powers and elements.

Also, haters gonna hate. This sentiment that human MLP characters can't be anything but white seems to be running rampant as of late and I'm sorry you got hit by it too. Just keep going and besides, if this bothers them, there are plenty of non-tanned Human MLP characters for them to look at. I don't see why they have to take all the derp out on you. :P

I think it's more that Celestia, being the sun goddess, is really tan. Luna, coming out at night, is very pale.

It's possible, actually (although this Celestia is just really tanned, I think) -- have you seen the movie 'Skin'? A white family had an African-American child, or at least she looked African-American. It's a genetic thing. They had another white child, also.

Oh? i've never heard of that. It sounds interesting, to say the least. I'll have to look it up.
And the Celestia being Tan thing seems to make more sense, since they have similar features.
she is the sun goddess of Equestria after all..

Celestia is not black, why does everyone make her so? Also, at the very least, because Celestia and Luna are sisters you should make sure they have the same skin color.

I don't see how her being a sun goddess, especually because how many sun goddesses are light skinned, has anything to do with her skin color.
Also, we are not talking about a tan, the skin color above is more then simply a tan.

Fellmoon Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014
Yes, well that would be a very drastic constrast in skin color. Honestly though arguing a dark tan instead of simply dark skin does really help the characters have diversity.

My issue is anesthetics, dark skin contrasting badly with pastel rainbow hair. I mean is not a pony's appearance largely effected by whether it not their colors work well together? It has been rare for me to find a dark skinned Celestia that looks good... but it should be noted there are a couple I feel look goid.

you know whats weird?...how the fandom says "look at how creative the fans of mlp are!" but when someone draws a character that isn't white or busty it reeks of "political correctness" or its "forced diveristy"
Reply
:iconfellmoon:
Fellmoon Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014
Yet tan is not the same thing as having a character being racially diverse. Also again, it is anesthetics. For Luna she could be African and I wouldn't bat an eye because dark colors are her thing and it would go well with her mane. Twilight as well could be of a darker skinned nationality and I wouldn't have a problem. Yet when a characters have a light colored pallet, if admittingly often colorful, lighter skin color works better.

Princess Celestia doesn't look as good with dark (or tanned if you wish) skinned because it clashes with her color pallet.

Brown and pastels I think are beautiful. Honestly I think luna would be pale myself but thats just me. I think it looks beautiful either way. and if you really have problems with it you could just draw it yourself or not look. because you don't have to. plus just because celestia is a white pony doesn't mean when drawn like a human she can't be tan or black she can be whatever the artist sees.
 and please note that when you first made a comment you were complaining about the color of her skin. not the palette itself or the style its drawn in or anything else you made it clear you had a problem with her skin and nothing else.

Here's a question; even if she was black (in terms of human race) why would that matter? :|
Reply
:iconfellmoon:
Fellmoon Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011
For the fact that in movies and such a black actor is being chosen oven what the original suggested or shown race. My problem is with political correctness over source material. That and the double standard. If is look on negitively if a black character is played by a white actor but positively if a white character is played by a black actor. My problem political correctness, nothing more and nothing less.

Your logic is full of shit. The artist chose to represent the characters this way because they wanted to, not because it was PC as you call it. Get some culture in you because you're starting to sound like a racist asshat. :|

Fellmoon Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011
Sighs, I am not trying too sound like a racist asshat, and I actually have not problem with other races at all.
I just don't like changes or branch offs from source material. You see I am a big reader and I like watching movies and tv show. Yet if I have come to enjoy something for what it is, I don't like it when it is changed if it does not need to be changed.
Also OC can and has become apart of the thought process of american culture and other groups, so one does not need to intend to do it to be affected by it. It is my option, nothing more. Everyone has there own interpritation of things or characters. I was just trying to state my frustration.
