Shining Moon Popping Balloons by Retl Shining Moon Popping Balloons by Retl
Art exchange with :icondemonstardust: They wanted their character, Shining Moon popping balloons. I'm not personally invested in coloring it, but if anyone wants to color it or redo the lines or make whatever other tweaks they wish, the Firealpaca file is here: [link]

I will consider it, but I can't commit to it just yet. What did you have in mind for me to draw?

I had a surprisingly fun time forming a mental image of how that happened. Because for him to walk in on it, it's most likely something Luna would have to be doing in public, not private. And if Luna's bouncing on a balloon in public, how did that come about. It could have been a prank Celestia pulled on her sister to convince her she needed to bounce on the balloon in the royal court for a special made-up holiday. It could have been a guest to the royal court with an outlandish demand as a part of a peace negotiation. It could have been that Luna was invited to a party and was surprised when the 'Looner' party wasn't nearly as lunar-themed as she expected, but she participated anyway in good will. Or maybe she still had a few problems with her sister and breaking balloons is how she works through those issues- she just couldn't get to somewhere private at the time. It seems like such a goofy premise, but I like it because it's goofy!

I'm not particularly fond of drawing a multi-character illustrations without monetary compensation. But maybe someday.

Nice drawing, nice pose.... though I have minor observations about it, the whole is nicekly done.

Nice achievement in drawing a balloon with a nice and long neck.... were you thinking in a Unique 16"??

I say again, nice pose, riding balloons is my favorite ^__^

I had no particular balloon manufacturer or size in mind when I drew it.

Thanks! Now if only I could figure out how to polish up that lineart weakness of mine, I'd feel a bit more confident. And while I love that lower darker balloon, the white one up there? Wish I had some white balloons on hoof to use as reference.

That'd be a fun experience. Lots more squeaking after the first burst because of how the water would effect friction. Lots more reflections to catch the light. Less loud noises, for those putoff by that sort of thing. Interesting proposal!
