Eclipse- Reunited with You

EDIT: MUCH BETTER IMAGE!! I managed to scan the monster of a painting at Office Max, so better quality guaranteed from now on! C:

---------

FINALLY FINISHED IT! JEESUS! This took me about 20 hours to do, on and off, but it was well worth it. This was done with acrylics on an 18 x 24 Clayboard Panel, for anyone who's curious.


The finished product of the sneak peek I showed you guys a little while back; Celestia and Luna dance around each other happily, more than relieved to be finally reunited with one another. c:


So, ever since I heard BlackGryph0n & Baasik's Moonlight, I had this image stuck in my head. It's a very wonderful song, and I highly recommend giving it a listen. O:

But yeah, I really wanted to make something with these two, and the song inspired it. Soooo it just sorta came together. The idea here is that, when the sisters combine their magic, an eclipse occurs. I didn't want the eclipse to be seen how it usually is (foreboding, dark, gloomy) so I played with the colors to try and make it seem more like a magical occurrence. In response to their magic working in tandem, I colored their manes and tails so that they would both reflect a sunset, with Celestia's being the brighter part and Luna's being the darker part. Despite how long it took me to finish, this was loads of fun to do. C:


Sooo.... yeah. I think that's everything? If you guys have any questions, feel more than free to ask me. And as always, thanks so much for taking a look! ^.^

Realistic or not, I wish that Hasbro would put a real eclipse in Equestria. Would be awesome to see.

If I were to be honest, I think Luna should of been the older sister. I've always seen nighttime to be ore mature-like and older than the daytime.
im weird.

Wow. Just...wow. If Lauren Faust saw this, she'd eat her pencils.

Will you be doing tutorials anytime soon? I mean now that your patron system has changed a fair bit.
Earthsong9405's avatar
Probably not because I honestly have no interest in doing one.
