Don't go to sleep. by Lopoddity Don't go to sleep. by Lopoddity
gosh i draw luna so much it's almost like she's my favorite pony

she's like pony dream slenderman, no wonder everypony was scared shitless when nightmare moon came back. I bet she was up in their dreams like pony Freddy Krueger before she got punted to the moon

I experiment a lot with digital media, and while it usually results in soul crushing failure, this is an experiment that went... kinda right. I was trying to throw a show-style pony into a naturalistic painted background and then blend the pony in with gentle shading. And it sorta worked, I'll try it out again.

might scrap later, background is shamelessly ripped off from a photo

I love the scenery, so dark and it's perfect for Luna! She reminds you of Slenderman or Freddy Krueger huh... She reminds me of Siegfried (Luna) and Nightmare (Nightmare Moon) from Soul Calibur, the series.

Do you think you could finish this piece? As in add in the shoes, crown and tail? I just realized this could make an awesome background for a smartphone or something. Either way, something to think about.

Hope you notice this lowly suggestion!

This very well may be the second or third best luna drawing I've seen so far :heart: but... she seems to be missing a tail?

Thank you.:) She is missing her tail...and hoofshoes, and tiara. This was just a color/layout experiment, I had no idea so many people would like it, otherwise I would've been much more elaborate.

Actually, when I first saw the initial animatic of Children of the Night, I thought Luna was dropping the children at the end, which seemed so sinister and horrifying-and somehow poetic?

That's anotheer way to think...

But I dunno why she would do that if she were singing to them and leading them to her 'garden of shadows' so that the little foals and bucks would grow strong and much more happy under the kingdom ruled in secret under the night by Princess Luna.

Idek,I really like Princess Luna also,so.

Maybe... 

Nevermind. I suck at talking.

A beautiful and atmospheric picture. I love how it is all done in shades of blue.

And I can imagine what it must have been like even before she became Nightmare Moon. You're having a perfectly nice dream, walking along through the forest, orchard or wherever, when out of nowhere that thing comes dashing at you screaming
