Thy Princess of the Night by AllisZero Thy Princess of the Night by AllisZero
Phew. What a marathon. I've spent every waking hour since Saturday working on this, sans a few hours last night to relax a bit due to lack of sleep and, of course, the time taken to maintain my job.

I got the idea on a whim, and I certainly imagined this picture differently than what eventually came out, although I'm satisfied with the results for the most part. The driving force behind this was... "Would Lauren use this as her wallpaper?... more importantly, would I?" (I'm very picky 'bout them wallpapers). It really drove my interest in this image and prompted me to work hard and stay up late every night. While the former is wishful thinking on my part, the latter is at least taken care of.

Though I don't dislike Celestia, I like Luna the best. Not many reasons for it since my only account of her is really Luna Eclipsed (I don't care much for fanfiction), but I guess being a night owl it was bound to happen.

Hopefully I stayed faithful to her form and elegance as a princess!

1080pony for those who want that.

Thanks for the comments, by the way. I appreciate them, whether or not I reply to everypony.

My dad just set his seasonal wallpaper. I thought "I wanna get a nice winter wallpaper too." So I went to Derpibooru and searched "safe, wallpaper, winter". Thank you for a much better wallpaper than I expected. Great work, ~AllisZero :)

THIS! This is so beautiful! o..O
Though the shading of her mane seemed odd the first few seconds, it totally fits the rest of the picture. Great job.
I'd love to use this as a background for an instrumental music track I'll upload on Youtube. Would that be okay if I credit you?

Keep up the great work!

Hey, sorry for the delay. Haven't checked my DA lately.

Yeah, go ahead. I put this under Creative Commons thinking it'd happen, so it's totally fine. Thanks, too!

The lighting effects accord nicely with the color scheme. The sensation of volume is nicely evoked by the affect the lighting has on her mane and tail.

There is not enough love in all the world for me to give to this beautiful rendition of the lovely Princess of the Night, her royal highness, Princess Luna!

Though that mosaic is pretty fitting!

Funny story: I submitted it last night and got confirmation it was going into the queue. I was surprised to find out it didn't make it to today's Drawfriend, so perhaps a wallpaper post? Oh the excitement is killing me.

Beautiful. I just realized how many more Luna pictures I've favorited than Celestia ones. It's possible that's because Luna is my favorite pony but I like to think she's the more beautiful character and has a greater ability to inspire beautiful fan art.

Even despite the fact it didn't turn as you imagined it (according to your words), I must say it still turned out quite beautiful. I love the lighting of this scene in general, but most interesting part to me is how you laid down shades and highlights on her mane - it gives unusual volumetric look to it. Usual, because you use hard, accurate ans sharp shading, not soft.

And yeah, I guess I can say you stayed faithful to her form and elegance (even though wings anatomy slightly bothers me, but the composition itself kind of covers it) :3

P.S. Also, I just adore that small touch with a print of her leg in the snow.

Thanks! Appreciate the comment.

Yep, the shading on her mane and tail was somewhat experimental, but it gave it the look I was going for.
