30 Day MLP Challenge, Day 10: Princess Luna

This is a challenge I designed for myself in which over the next 30 days (hopefully) I'll be drawing one random character from MLP:FiM each day.


More watercolour ponies! I really wanted to bring out the ethereal, flowy quality of Luna's hair so I went for a traditional style again c: The stars in her hair were also fun to draw in.

I think this one's my favourite so far; if there's two things I'm suckers for, it's glowy stuff and flowy painterly styles. Coincidentally, the way I painted Luna reminds me of one of my earlier pieces, "Nightfall."

That's another beautiful piece. And that paper, wow! The texture it yields really brings your art alive.

Ah, thank you c:

Personally I think the texture of the watercolour paper came out too strongly because of my scanner's tendency to hypersaturate things sometimes, but in this case I suppose the vibrancy of Luna's colours tone it down slightly.

Thank you very much! I agree with you, watercolours suit Luna well; I'm also thinking of drawing Celestia in a similar style because her hair would look really pretty all flowy c:

I'd love to see Celestia! You'd have to have a ton of patience for all the different colors of her hair though :D
