Rain Check by JackJacko-Eponymous Rain Check by JackJacko-Eponymous
This it the coloured version of the sketch I made some time ago.
As I wrote in that description, I made this because in my opinion Celestia is just the kind of ruler that would ditch her royal duties every now and then for a little dancing in the rain :3

For Celestia's cutie mark I used the excellent version made by ~ooklah

Nothing much to add, I had some troubles with the colour balance here because I usually work on a laptop with a screen calibration quite different from other monitors. It gets annoying sometimes.
Also *yay* for Cheap Leaf Brush™ :D

As always all pony stuff and characters are ©Hasbro, Lauren Faust and all the MLP:FiM team

I spent literally over two minutes trying to think of something nice to say about your work on this, and all I could find is this: PERFECTION.
In every aspect. The expressions on ALL of the faces, the fact that there's royal business to be done but Celestria says f*ck the police, her hair, her wings, the colors.... just perfection. Keep it up.

If Celestia wanted to be out in the rain, I'm pretty damned sure that one guard wouldn't be enough to stop her. Also, *rained, and "who", "princess", and "dumb" should be spelled with capital letters, like so "Who" "Princess" "Dumb"

This is exactly what she would say too, if not for the fact that she was in a small children's show.

And then she slipped on a puddle, and face-planted on the gravel, just as somepony happened to be photoing in her direction.

The picture taken subsequently went viral in the media, named "EPIC FAIL - Princess Celestia dances to the rain", and became a sensational hit to the public throughout Equestria and worldwide.

Embarrassed to no end, the Royal Court had to the present had yet succeeded in getting over the incident. Members of the Royal family are forbidden by Royal decree to dance in the rain since.

This is completely lovely.
A second look does leave me wondering how she can live when she's all wings and legs, with almost no actual body at all, but the gleeful curve of her neck and the expression on her face still makes me smile right along with her, so it's all good.
I really like the subtle way you show her mane and tail are wet enough to start trailing on the ground and curling into damp ringlets, but not yet completely soaked to the point of collapsing into a sodden mess.
Beautiful work.

Yeah, I did push her design and proportions a bit far... Honestly, the fact is I got so caught up in drawing her flow that I ended up sacrificing the realism. Thanks for the critique though :meow:

They say being part of the lunar republic is no excuse not to like Celestia (they being the heads of DA's LR groups) . Good on you.
