Goodnight Moon by Valkyrie-Girl Goodnight Moon by Valkyrie-Girl
Oh man. It feels like forever since I last drew a pony. Well, a canon pony at least. And a quick Luna before bed seemed appropriate.

God that's so cool.  So pretty and I love how you kept the sketch in it.  Very nice anatomy as well.  10/10

i really like her expression.
Also, sketches can express a better feeling than normal drawings, since you see the artist trait without cleaning

Thank you! I've often found that I like a drawing better when it's in it's sketch form rather than when it's inked. They loose a lot of energy and life.

I generally love concepts and sketches, since you can see a sort of evolution of the thing.

Also, some of you works are very interesting, and since i'm writing a pen and paper RPG based on mlp, i would ask you if you mind if i got some inspiration of your design, especially for those valkyries, that are quite interesting as concept.
Obviously i will credit you as origial creator of the concept from where i got inspiration.

I do actually. [link] These here are my Valkyrie royals, Brynie (who's not really a princess but close enough to it), Queen Freya and Princess Raven. [link] And this is a little bit of info on the Valkyria. Have fun!

And Luna's the perfect character for such a reference. :D

Now I'm curious what Luna would think of that old book. I can't remember it having much of a story to it other than saying goodnight to everything, but with such a strong focus on her moon, I doubt Luna would think poorly of it.

Goodnight moon, goodnight tiara, goodnight throne, goodnight palace walls, goodnight... bah, the original book was better.

I like the messiness of the coloring. Gives it a distinct feel.

Well Rarity is Best Pony but Luna is a very close second. Or third. Depending on my mood.

o_0 I'm not going to get into a best pony fight, but rarity is definitely my third, I think Fluttershy is to cute to not be second.
