This was pretty fun to make once I've figured out how Luna's limbs should connect with her body The original file for this is HUGE MLP, Friendship is Magic and Princess Luna are trademarks from Hasbro Edit: Fixed her cutie mark
Right so here's my entry for the "Ponies playing with toys" contest that is currently being run by Equestria Daily.
Interrupted the final touches on my folio to get this done, well worth it in my opinion! I do believe this is the first time I've drawn Celestia and I must admit I feel like she came out pretty well.
The basic idea is that Celestia walks in on Luna playing with the pink Celestia toy and new Nightmare Moon toy. Enacting a battle. I expect Luna to be using phrases like:
"Pew pew pew" "Bow to your new queen!" "Now Equestria is mine!"
Celestia in her infinite wisdom is amused and I expect her to take control of the pink Celestia and turn the tides of Luna's imaginary battle.
Having recently watched a tutorial by the very talent Patrick Brown I tried a new method to get better looking shadows and I think it worked pretty well still no where close to his stuff.
Background was a bit of an issue and I literally stumble across the idea of the gradient circle. There just wasn't time to churn out a proper background. However I must say that I do like the way it came out, much better than I thought the simple circle would.
Back to the folio!

"Farewell, sister." Luna practically spat the last word. "You've ignored me for too long." "What do you mean, Luna? Wait... are those your saddlebags? What are you doing? Luna, where are you going? Speak to me! Luna, come back!" Celestia's cries echoed unanswered around the castle hall. "What have I done...?"
Feedback wanted:I found a reference for a longer wing design for Celestia (e.g. compare to Celestia and Luna Hugging above). Do you prefer the shorter or longer wing design? Thanks for the feedback. The wing was shrunk a little. Reuse: You are not allowed to reuse this image without permission. If you post it on another site, I ask that you include a link back here.
