Patron Voted Character Painting!
June's winner Luna makes an appearance.

I went a bit further with this piece than I planned to do, but eh, I've made Luna before, so I thought I'd do things bit different.

This was actually take two. First take was basically a repaint of an old fan favourite Statim Luna, but I decided I didn't want to repaint that piece almost exactly the way it was. So I went with a compromise, taking some iconic elements from it, armour, and such, but all in a more current visual style, and different setting, all that stuff.

Painting reflective armor is quite a fun challenge. The weird shapes. Mostly the chest parts here were fun. Big convoluted single plates.

Tried to approach the head shape different for her.
Also, cloudscapes again for once.

(Now Luna is finished, July's winner Yona will be next on the list)

Approx Time: ~13 Hours

Pony look epic in armor. But for flying she would need a light one.

Wonderful work
