Gathering Elements - Rook by Nimaru Gathering Elements - Rook by Nimaru
If you haven't read my "Real Story" comic, this may not make a lot of sense [link]

This is the side detail from just before the scene in my other comic where Celestia banished Nightmare Moon. There was just too much to fit in, but I promised to fill in the details so here we go.

EDIT: I finally figured out a decent way to color correct them for the nighttime. The picture has now been updated. Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

Isn't Celestia's hair suppost to be pink?

Nope! That's a fan invention that I don't subscribe to. If they ever make it official in the show, cest la vie, but I don't believe the intent was ever for her to have had pink hair.

But, the very first episode described Celestia with a pink mane in Nightmare Moon's story.

No, it showed an ancient book depicting the two sisters. One had pink hair and the other had long curls. Both of them were the same height even. They were stylized pictures only and weren't meant to be literal. If so, Luna would look very different.

I don't know if this is canon, or just false, but I believe that Luna looked like she does now before she was Nightmare Moon. She just might have been blasted to her original self after she came back.  But if the picture does show one with pink hair, who is it meant to be other than Celestia? I've seen pictures of her fan-fiction parents (Some that you've drawn as well) and I didn't see any green in her genetics. Therefore, it would make more sence for her to have pink hair.

That's not what I mean. They are definitely Luna and Celestia, but they are the same height and Luna's hair is wrong. Because those are wrong, it only stands to reason that the depiction of Celestia with pink hair isn't precise either. In other words, there's no good reason to believe she had pink hair unless people are also going to say that Luna was once as tall as Celestia and had curly hair.
