Mare in the Moon by space-kid Mare in the Moon by space-kid
"I am the Princess of the Night, thus it is my duty to watch over your dreams."

Luna is my favorite pony; mainly because of her association with night, solitude and space! I tried to convey that through this piece; the moon might have been a place of banishment, but I feel it could also be a place of retreat for Luna. Just another quiet night relaxing under the stars. She might be a bit socially awkward, but maybe she just needs people to show her the way.

I took the liberty to give Luna a special "Space-Kid" set of accessories, and made them look like black crystals with cyan highlights. It's very Tron-esque, but it's not meant to be electronic. Anyway, it's a little personal touch.

Now before anyone says "the moon doesn't work like that", to that I say "Hah!"

This  must be my new favourite MLP art piece.
I don't know what it is but it is really pleasing to look at.

:iconinuilikeitplz:  This is beautiful.  I love the details you put into the moon and the stars and how Luna sorta blend right in.  She looks bored sort of.  Unless she's just lounging.  I don't know but I've had days like hers.

I was going for a pondering kind of look. It's nice to take a break and zoom out took look at life from afar once in a while. Especially on quite nights under a sky full of stars c:

It is nice to take a break and relax.  I like your concept.  She looks very comfortable resting on the moon.  Sorry I mistakenly got the pondering look for a bored one.  It turned out amazingly after all.  :iconinuilikeitplz:
