<edit>
Mother of Celestia... It got featured on EQD as the picture in the music post...
Also Nicole Oliver said she likes it. I can die happy now...
You guys are BUCKING AMAZING! Thank you so much for all the views and favs! >.<
7k+ views... that's 7k more that I'd ever hoped to get on this :]

IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAND! *faints*. Thank you all kindly!
</edit>

ENG (PL translation below/PL tłumaczenie poniżej):

This was inspired by one of the questions at bronycon. Someone, at the voice actors pannel, asked the MLP cast what kind of music would their characters most likely listen to. Nicole Oliver answered that Celestia would probably listen to classic 80's heavy metal. I instantly had this image of Celestia waving her awesome mane to the sound of some sweet metal carved in my cerebral cortex and I knew I had to do this. (truestory.jpg) So here it is finally.

It took me much longer to make this than I had originally anticipated, mainly due to her mane and tail consisting of an immense ammount of curves and fiddling around with them.

And speaking of her mane I wanded to make it resemble those crazy haristyles of 80's glam metal band members :P

I've tried to make the leather jacket she's wearing look like a classic Perfecto leather jacket, which was very popular among heavy metal fans, but I guess it was more like the 90's style. More suitng for 80's would be blue jeans, white sneakers and a jean vest with bunch of band tags on it, but I thought it would look rather silly (like Lyra in pants :P). Also I wasn't quite convinced how she would look 100% glam (and I'm not so familiar with this style either), soI went the leather way - leather jacket and steel cap boots (and flannel shirt, buck yea :P).

Here's another version, with her eyes open, which I came up with while doodling on the vector: [link]
I think I'll add some sound system with beastly speakers so that it actually looks like she's listening to music, but that's future stuff.
And if you're curious, there are some silly WIPs in my scrapbook.
(There may be none untill I actually add them there. I can't fiddle with the time, I'm not the Doctor, think 4th dimensionally :P)
(OK, they're there. Again, please excuse the totally stupid comments)

And speaking of future stuff I have this one idea (related to ponies) that I'd like to expand on but that'll stay a secret for a while (not that I have any subscribers who watch my stuff anyway, so it'll probably go unnoticed - forever alone mode: ON)

Anyway, feel free to comment and also constructive criticism is always welcomed! I've got to run now, Lyra is trying to take my hands for calling her pants silly.

========================================================

PL

Ów wektor zainspirowany został jednym z pytań na bronyconie. Na jednym z paneli, ktoś z widowni zadał pytanie aktorom jakiej muzyki słuchałyby ich postaci. Nicole Oliver odpowiedziała, że Celestia najprawdopodobniej słuchałaby klasycznego heavy metalu z lat 80. Od razu w mojej korze mózgowej wypalił się obraz Celestii moshującej jej wspaniałą grzywą (jak ja nie lubię tego słowa :P) do jakiegoś zajebiaszczego metalu. Po prostu wiedziałem, że muszę to zrobić (truestory.jpg). Więc oto i ów twór mojej chorej wyobraźni.

Wykonanie tego zajęło mi znacznie więcej czasu niż pierwotnie zakładałem, głównie z powodu jej grzywy (ugh, znowu to słowo :P) i ogona, które zawierają w sobie masakryczną ilość krzywych, które musiałem ręcznie poustawiać.

Mówiąc już o jej... grzywie (bleee) chciałem żeby przypominała te szalone fryzury członków zespołów glam metalowych.

Co do design'u to próbowałem żeby jej kurtka przypominała kurtkę Perfecto (w Polsce bardziej znana jako Ramoneska), która była bardzo popularna wśród fanów muzyki heavy metalowej, ale raczej było to bardziej w latach 90. Do lat 80 bardziej by pasowały klasyczne niebieskie jeansy, białe adidasy i jeansowa kamizelka z mnóstwem naszywek różnych zespołów. Ale przez te spodnie wyglądałaby trochę śmiesznie (niczym Lyra w spodniach :P). Nie byłem też do końca przekonany jakby wyglądała całkowicie w stylu glam (no i dochodzi jeszcze fakt, że nie do końca jestem zaznajomiony z tym stylem), także odziana została w skórzaną kurtkę i glany (i flanelową koszulę :P).

A tu jest druga wersja, z otwartymi oczami, na którą wpadłem gryzmoląc po wektorze: [link]
Myślę, że dodam później jakiś sprzęt grający z wielkimi głośnikami, żeby wyglądało na to, że rzeczywiście słucha jakiejś muzyki, ale to należy do przyszłości.
I jeśli kogoś to interesuje to jest parę WIPów w moim scrapbooku.
(Może ich tam jeszcze nie być bo muszę je tam faktycznie wrzucić. Nie potrafię majstrować przy czasie, nie jestem Doktorem, myśl 4-wymiarowo :P)
(OK, już są. Powtarzam, 'humor', który się tam znajduje jest na poziomie rozwielitki, także proszę zignorować głupie komentarze)

Mówiąc zaś o przyszłości, to mam pewien pomysł (związany z poniaczami), który będę chciał rozwinąć, ale narazie nie zdradzę co to może być (nie żeby ktoś mnie i moje bidne rzeczy tu obserwował, śledził czy jak to się tam nazywa, co i tak zapewne zostanie niezauważone - forever alone mode: ON)

Także tego, komentarze a zwłaszcza konstruktywna krytyka zawsze mile widziana! Ja uciekam, Lyra próbuje zabrać mi moje dłonie bo nazwałem jej spodnie śmiesznymi.

Celestia smile : My dear Lord Tirek, you are SO doomed. Not only do we have the Elements of Harmony and a sharp young princess in Ponyville, but I also have my Tirek-proof metal swag and DJ Pon-3's Bass Cannon.

Clapping Pony Icon - Vinyl Scratch : Thanks, Your Majesty! Aw yeah... we got this!

Tirek waves the white flag and peacefully surrenders to three-headed bulldog thingy. They had him with the metal swag. Pinkie pie crazed smile sprite

Oj tak, jej grzywa jak i ogon były okropnie czasochłonne, zwłaszcza, że robiłem to w Photoshopie, co oznacza, że każde z pojedynczych pasemek (czy jak to się tam zwie :P) musiały być robione podwójnie, żeby zachować stałą szerokość konturu na całej długości.

Celestia była moim pierwszym poniaczowym wektorem, ale wcześniej miałem jako-takie doświadczenie w grafice wektorowej. Chociaż nigdy wcześniej nie robiłem czegoś tak skomplikowanego pod względem ilośći punktów kontrolnych i relacji.

Jeśli chodzi o program, w kórym pracuję to Photoshop, jednak nie jest on idealny do tworzenia grafiki wektorowej. Niektóre rzeczy trzeba robić 'na około'. Używam go głównie ze względu na fakt, że pracuję w nim już ponad 10 lat i można powiedzieć, że znam go na wskroś oraz jego wszechstronność.

Dużo lepszym narzędziem do wektorów jest Illusrator, ale niestety jak to u Adobe, każdy program z ich kolekcji ma inne skróty klawiszowe do tych samych opcji a mi nie chciało się z lenistwa uczyć od nowa różnych sztuczek, więc zostałem przy Photoshopie.

Drugim świetnym narzędziem jest Inkscape, używam go w pracy i muszę przyznać, że jak na darmową aplikację jest genialny. Działa chyba na każdym sprzęcie i potrafi masę rzeczy. Czasem też używam go 'dla siebie', ze względu na to, że można w nim zrobić coś z niczego bardzo szybko.

Hehe, Blackened is a bit of contradictory with Celestia in general, especially the verse:
'Darkening in vain
Decadence remains
All is said and done
Never is the Sun'


But yeah, she would totally rock hard to it :P

Here's a very rough concept of her [link]
Right now I'm working on Chrysalis (well, if doodling Fibonacci spirals all over her counts as working on her that is :P), and I estimate she's around 85% finished.
When I'm done with Chrysalis, Luna's next :)
