The Face of the Night by Valkyrie-Girl The Face of the Night by Valkyrie-Girl
Speed paint Luna! I don't know how I always seem to end up making her look so sad.

Took about an hour.

She looks more resolute than sad. But that's just my humble opinion.

I've never been a huge fan of Luna for some reason, but your artwork is making me warm up to her. I love the stars in her mane.

Well realistically speaking we don't have a whole lot to go on, show content wise, so I can understand not being a fan of her. I am glad that my art is changing your opinion of her though. Thank you!

You're welcome! I never quite understood why she was so popular, but now I'm starting to see the appeal.

I think before the episode "Luna Eclipsed" aired, her popularity had a lot to do with how little we knew about her. She was an open canvas and people to like a mysterious character, especially one that is small and blue and adorable and also Celestia's little sister. And also the fact that she was Nightmare Moon might have something to do with it.

Makes sense. I guess that's also how Derpy got to be so popular. It's too bad things didn't work out quite as well for her in canon. :(

She's beautiful. If I was a pony, I would look like her, only with a black body.

I like how ambiguous her expression is here. Makes you wonder what's on her mind.

Just love how her mane came out here.

She's feelin' bad about the fact that she rose the moon crooked that night. Or possibly even upside down.

This is the Face of the Night
Her consternation brought to light
She seems frightened and unsure
So let's give a happy cure.

You see we understand,
though you bring darkness to our land
We can rest oh so carefree
With your protective supremacy

We'd be glad to co-exist
Playing games with our new clique
We'll all sing and play by choice
EVEN WITH A FORMAL VOICE!

Turn that sad frown upside down
Polish those boots and pretty crown
Princess Luna, don't you see?
We'll love you for eternity!







...I'm a dork. Seriously, though, excellent work as always.

As for why she looks so sad, it might be the way she looks. (Anyways I think luna is beautiful when she's sad) :P
