Celestia, Princess of the Dawn, Goddess of the Sun, and Ruler of Equestria visits an orphanage on Hearths Warming Eve to bring warmth and cheer to the lonely little orphan foals.

A very Merry Christmas to you all, and to the 700+ people watching my work, thank you!

Aw, tears in my eyes.

Though that can also be laid at the feet of the incredibly gorgeous version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that is playing in another tab. Nine cellos and one upright bass.

That is beautiful rendition of that song! I wish I had heard it when I was working on this one: fav.me/d709k5l .

Actually, seeing that piece before coming to this one was why I searched for that song and cellos!

everything comes back around.

They're so cute! I'd adopt them all!  And I could actually spend time with them all.  Loves all the ponies! ^_^

This looks BEAUTIFUL.

I mean, I'm a 'Protect Celestia' kinda guy to begin with, but this guy could be printed and sold as a pony-themed Christmas card. And non-bronies would still buy it, because the warmth and simple joy it conveys really transcends the cartoon antics of the show.

Happy I stumbled across it.


(Love the bi-color hair on the filly on the far left. Nice touch.)

Thank you very much!
Yeah, designing all those foals was probably the funnest part of this painting.:)
