Something I made after rereading Eternal. It's a ridiculously melodramatic emotion romp but god damn if its not one of my favorite fics.
I liked how some parts turned out in this but it also really rubbed my limitations back in my face as I worked on it. Lots of iterations to get the lighting remotely right and a bunch of compositional elements changed or sacrificed when I realized I couldn't pull them off right. (and celestia's regalia!- afdsggh how do draw metal)
I need to get myself back into doing more legitimate practice rather than the odd picture every month or so.
