Into the Night by TaylorRose16 Into the Night by TaylorRose16
I am reeeeeally proud of this one. :D It took forever, but it was worth it! ((lolRarityquotereferenceftw))

Princess Luna is such a beautiful character, I just could not help but draw her. :heart: I absolutely looooved her old mane, but I'm also in love with her new look as well. She's just all around a gorgeous character and great fun to draw. :)

But I was a little disappointed with the new episode, "Luna Eclipsed". I looooove Luna, and I did really like the way that she wasn't accustomed to modern times and that she seemed to have aged since we saw her last, but something about the episode just... didn't click with me. Idk, it just wasn't very good in my opinion. :shrug: Except the part with Fluttershy. That was my favorite part - it made me laugh so hard. :XD:

So anyway, yeah! I worked reeeally super hard on this picture and tried out a BUNCH of new things for the background and for Luna's shading, and I, personally, am really happy with the result. I tried my best at making the borders of her mane/tail look transparent, and I'm actually quite pleased with myself. :D Not to toot my own horn or anything... >>

EDIT: Holy crackers and cheese, this drawing was featured at the #1 spot in Equestria Daily's drawfriend #230!!! :O I was seriously shocked when I went on there and saw my drawing as the featured picture. :la: Thank you so much Seth! And everypony else! <333

Wow this is super amazing! Just the Luna itself would have made great art, but you added those awesome clouds and that awesome moon.

I used special brushes for the clouds and moon, except for the one part of cloud that's swirling around her leg, lol. I had lots of fun, and irritation, experimenting with lots of different things. :XD:

Wow, you can be very proud indeed, she is beautiful! I really love Luna too, and I have to say that I prefer her new mane, it fits better with the fact that she is a royal princess.

And that background, damnit! I'd really, like really really, love to put this as a wallpaper on my desktop, but it's a little bit too short, sadly...

Anyway, it's still a wonderful piece of work! I could watch this all night long, seriously. Thank you and congratulations!

Aww, thank you soo much! :iconblushplz: Her new mane is extremely gorgeous, and it does signify her royalty more, but I also really liked the design of her old mane as well. ^^

If you'd like, I could try to re-size the picture for your wallpaper. :) I'd be more than happy to.

And thank you again! Your comment made me feel all fuzzy inside. :la: I'm glad you like it!

Really? I thought the episode was amazing! Her personality was completely different from what the fanon gave her, but was still so fitting and well done! I personally was 100% satisfied with the episode, and the handling of my favourite character.

On another note, the picture is VERY well done. Luna is expertly drawn, and the cloud/scene is reminiscent of night-time winter wonderland. You have my personal thumbs up!

I still think it was a good, enjoyable episode ((as every episode is)), but something about it just didn't strike the same chord as some of the others did. And I really didn't spend hardly any time learning about her fanon personality, so I didn't have that to go off of with this episode. =/ But like I said, it was still enjoyable, lol.

And thank you very much! :D It means a lot to me that my art is well received. ^^ I'm glad you like it!

So, my jaw just dropped. This is AMAZING! You just keep substantially improving every time you create something, and WOW! I love this. Excellent, awesome, fantastic work!

It's so much more than 20% cooler, by the way. Like, at least 50%.
