Wallpaper Edition [link]



Welp... Another request done. It's been sometime since we last saw Luna with her old mane, haven't we?

THY REQUEST BY :iconhypnotix666: !!!!!!!!!!


Really satisfied how this had turned out. Hopefully it stays at this quality in any future pieces.
EDIT: Took away that unsymmetrical pattern on her armor because it's kinda a sore eye.
Anyway, I've put a real star constellation in there. Can you find it?

Now if you'll excuse me...

Signed in just to comment! (And 'watch', I believe it was called.)
Very lovely art you have. 

Finding star constellations is a favorite pastime of mine. (Although, it's hard without surrounding constellations to refer to..) Hmm..

First one I thought of was Leo Minor...astronomyonline.org/Observatio…
But, that's kind of off..so it could be Delphinus. encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/ima…

Second one I thought of was...Triangulum! (No, really. It is a constellation..) I doubt you would use it though. 

And then I thought of Pegasus and Monoceros (Unicorn).... but then my mind just started finding stars that made boxes (for Pegasus). 

Final guess is probably Cygnus (head pointed to moon). 

In conclusion, my best bets are Delphinus or Cygnus. 

Either way, fantastic job! (I had a lot of fun looking for the constellation.) :D

Oh wow, I did this so long ago that I forgot which constellation I put inside.

I know how it feels like to gaze upon constellations of stars. I live in an urban environment and light pollution is of course ubiquitous. It's rare to be able to see even small cluster of stars.

That..is rather sad (from a star gazer's point of view, of course). Urban areas have their own advantages, too. 

But hey, at least your situation makes seeing stars that much more special!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you
sorry

I have to give this 9/10, because of the outstanding depth given to the hair and eyes! The hair looks like you drew each individual strand not on one but several different planes! And the eyes look like those of a... Well a young princess: full of intelligence and still joyful.

Erm, I would like to point out a flaw in this otherwise perfect masterpiece. You show Luna smiling, and her mouth I see a canine, which ponies do not have. Pony teeth are exclusively molars.

But still, Holy bajeseesus you are talented. I look forward to more of your works in the future.

Haha... Biologically, you're right.
But I purposely added that to add some uniqueness. Otherwise, it's just plain ol' straight teeth. :D

I just noticed the exact same thing in the "Wallpaper edition" right before clicking this. I guess it does kind of imply her sometimes "evil" appearance/mannerisms, though.

'Sides, it's not like My Little Pony strives for biological accuracy ;)
