 Princess Luna Worried  - "You might see me at night, shining clear and bright... As I show you the way, through the darkest of nights... But all I have, is my sisters light... Without her, my moon dosen't shine as bright... When she is gone, and I  will rise... All I will have, is the darkest of nights... Lost in space, lost of purpose... But I treasure what  I have, and know my importance...
But the moon might never, truly shine" - LuleMT, A poem for the lonely moon

I always thought Luna felt like this, and I love showing this side of her ( althought its mostly something I imagine )

I really like how you've done her hair. Just fantastic how long and curvy they are adding theamount of detail and lighting effects.

Always felt Luna was torn about what she wanted -
She wanted the popularity and fame of her sister yet at the same there was the allure of the night with its peace and quiet and Luna does come off as a very private pony.

There's always something more to everything. Be it a seemingly unimportant parts of a whole — or the contrary. There is always something more. Thanks for reminding me, I guess)
Still love your works.

The Princess of the Night looks amazing, and her loveliness shines even more even with the deep-seated sadness she's feeling. First off, her more-realistic form helps kick up the emotional side too while also carrying so many textures and highlights which give her great depth and charm. The lighting plays a big role too, with the sweet glow of the obscured moon behind her and then her other side lit up by the dimmer yellow of the sun… perhaps a mix thinking about her sister but fading because of her own mood? (…or maybe I'm just reading way too much into it. I'm too good at that.)


In any case, this is all the more touching for its beauty. The celestial background and tiny orbiting planets seem to make her feelings seem much "bigger," perhaps at least in her mind. Gorgeous work on her weathered crown and alternate collar, plus the silver moon charm is a sweet touch.


Thanks for sharing this tender moment of self-reflection and doubt; your poem for her is truly touching too. It makes me think how terribly empty even Nightmare Moon would feel if Celestia had been truly banished.

I never imagined that I would be faving a piece of MLP fanart, but the way you brought realism to this completely simplistic cartoon character while fully managing to retain the look of the design is absolutely incredible.

This picture is just awe inspiring - hauntingly beautiful.

I really like the perspective. To show celestial bodys so small against Luna. The sun is draws my attention. Together with the poem it gets across your point.
To note an other thing. My brother was here as i saw it the first time. He said she looks like a stellar nebula- i must agree with him. She has something - ghostly, mysterious, beautiful ...
