There were always three navigators aboard the ships of old—none was complete without the other. Wingéd, enchanted, and green-heeled alike, the trio would navigate by the wind, the stars, and the lay of the land...seeing each ship safely to its berth... (the beginning of the Captain's response to a reader question)
The first panel in the most recent Captain Luna update with the typography removed. I'm pleased with how this one came together, despite my bad planning. [link]
Posting it here because I feel it stands alone well.
MLP (c) Hasbro a special thanks to Lauren Faust & the MLP team!
A tourmaline levitator, found at the heart of Captain Luna's airship. I removed Luna's dialogue for the sake of posting this as a single frame, but her explanation can be read here [link] !
Took a different approach to setting up the painting this time around...mostly, not doing any kind of line drawing for the background and instead blocking out massive shapes like I'd done in some ink sketches on paper.
Had a bit of an art block earlier, so I'm glad that I was able to push through it and get back to working on stuffs again
Just fooling around with illustrator again. I have never expected this would be so much fun! I was doing some wallpaper but Ive recently made myself some wallpaper perfect for me so if I won't use it I can at least show it.
I loved this concept. I HAD to draw something with it. I just absolutely loved the idea of Luna helping calm other ponies' nightmares especially since she was once the biggest nightmare herself once upon a time. This episode gave me SO much more respect for the Princess of the Night.
Quick-ish fanart piece based off of *MarbleYarns' tumblr blog "Captain Luna". I love the Captain Luna blog and MarbleYarns' work in general. Interesting stuff, that has inspired me and rekindled my love for the sea - specifically my admiration for ships and boats. So, thanks is what I'm trying to say? Heh.
I might do another piece of fanart and take more time over it. Something less painty and messy lol. Perhaps a detailed picture featuring the Corona Borealis. Speaking of the Corona Borealis, I'm not sure how apparent it is or not but I included the constellation in the sky.
