Great job. You put a lot of detail into them. I love how you can see every little individual hair. :) I also like their wings, though the feathers seem a little flat. But you did the best you could. :D The necks seem a little long, but I love the armor around their necks and on their hooves. I absolutely adore how you did Luna's hair style! I think the length is perfect. And Celestia looks so cool. I can't wait to see the pmv! I bet it's gonna be awesome. :) I love your art. Keep up the great work.

Beautiful!! Absolutely beautiful!! This is the most realistic pic of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna I have ever seen!! How on earth did you make this?

The hair, the wings, the eyes, the jewelry... THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!
You, my friend, are talented.

I adore the amount of details you have included. And these models look amazing.
If you do ever finish the PMV, I'm sure it would be absolutely fantastic. I can't wait to see it. :rose:

humm now that i think, i have a couriosity about a my old "arch-nemesis" the infamous eye shapes DUNNDUNNDDUUUUNNNN *dramatic song*. In fact i don't know the real shape of mlp eyes, i presume who are spherical, but i'm not sure. For your model you has used a spherical eyes? or deformed with lattice? thanks

I like your two models, even the original character design i really love the Hairs (or maybe is most correct say manes and tails XD) and the eyes , what technique you used? I can not wait to see the finished video ^^

Celestia has a slight over-bite.IE: The bottomed jaw is reassessed or the top one is extended farther then the bottom one.  Intentional? 
Reply
:iconjpl-animation:
JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2015  Professional Filmographer
yes.. because that overbite gave me nice silhouette especially from side view...

I saw in your other uploads of them from the side. It looks great from the side. I wonder why Celestia's is more noticeable. Maybe it's the colors.

:iconjpl-animation:
JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2015  Professional Filmographer
or maybe it the shadow casts by the overbite mesh...

meh it's not that noticeable. I think it's one of those things you can just call artistic license.

them not having nostrils is a little off putting

i did put nostrils on them but it looks really ugly i have to take it out...

FountainStranger Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
you didn't try different styles of nostril? the shows nostrils are practically just slits unless you want hyper realistic nostrils on your ponies 
Reply
:iconjpl-animation:
JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Professional Filmographer
i did.. i tried to put it in photoshop, even just a slit made it really ugly.. i tried different shapes.. slits, holes, even just a bit of vague slit really destroy their look.. so i just left it without nostril... it may look good on drawing or the basic 3D ponies, but it didn't look good on alicorns...

FountainStranger Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
you did stray from the shows style when it came to these models, its still very off putting either way like wax figures
Reply
:iconjpl-animation:
JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Professional Filmographer
the reason it is off putting is simply because, if you hear the Moonrise Soundtrack, its very serious and dark MLP music.. if i want to make PMV of it, i need to change their look a bit.. a bit more realistic and stylized, because the original look of Celestia and Luna is well, a bit too cute and colourful, so i have to change that... and i also upgraded their wings and armor to be more serious and fantasized... my design cue is from Marvel Thor...

i do admit that the skin look like wax simply because i havent developed the shader of the characters properly...

i still stand by my opinion, the lack of nostrils is distracting. I'm gonna watch the video but i feel like I'm just gonna be staring at they're muzzles just being hyper aware of the lack of nostrils

JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Professional Filmographer
ok, if you so concern about it , i'll see if i can fix that problem... i'll try to design a nostril that worked on them both...

you still need to make the coat hair and horns in HD to contrast with the sharp level of definition in the mane, tal and horseshoes tho
and don't forget the nostils! the ponies need to breathe you know...

:iconjpl-animation:
JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2015  Professional Filmographer
what do you mean by coat hair and horns ? and what about the horseshoe ? 

i purposefully didn't give them any nostril, because in 2D it might look good, but it looks super duper ugly in 3D...
Reply
:iconage3rcm:
age3rcm Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
its because their bodies still look like candy/ made of plastic while the other features are very detailed.

that's understandable. but if you want to improve them, i guess that you should redo their bodies to not look like they are made of wax/glass

JPL-Animation Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2015  Professional Filmographer
suggestion ? 

it look like a wax perhaps because of the subsurface scattering material...

i basically, want to put a skin shading material since if i give them fur, my computer would explode because it is too heavy...

age3rcm Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
well, at least this guy's computer didn't explode: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjHiC0…

you are going where no other brony has even gone before. 
and i think this is more amazing than many other things.

this is what you are aiming for their coat?

oh yeah.. that looks great.. i always love disney rendition of the fur.. unfortunately, since my computer is quite old, i can only managed to cheat that look in SSS...

oh and thanks.. :D
