After a long day shift, Princess Celestia likes to unwind with a peaceful swim before heading to bed. There’s so much everyday life to spectate in Canterlot, after all, and doesn’t such a hardworking princess deserve a break?
Yeah, fun fact, I started this one at least over half a year ago. Once I started getting into the convention scene, however, I had to push it aside over and over again to design pony merch for those. But I was determined. It was a big road ahead, and I wanted to see it out until the end. I’m glad I decided to keep going.
I went through a lot of experimenting with this one before considering myself satisfied with the end product, especially with the water and overall shading in relation to the time of day. I didn’t want to do my favorite princess dirty.
Also, the pegasi in the distance aren’t anyone specific… I was thinking of ice cream color palettes at the time and just created some horses.
Surprisingly there’s not much else to say here; I’m just super relieved I got this finished!
Feedback is appreciated! :happybounce:

I don’t understand why people are tagging Twilight and Cadance in this? I didn’t draw either of them here, it’s just Celestia and two random ponies in the sky.
