Moonlit Reflection by CaineScroll Moonlit Reflection by CaineScroll
Well guys, ask and ye shall...oh, who am I kidding. I've been itching to draw her since forever. XD

Anyway, this is, hands-down, the most Photoshopped painting I've ever done. But there's Luna in it, so I guess it's worth the effort. =) It's no surprise that I went through a whole bunch of tutorials and references to get it right, though; a big thank-you goes to *Ric-M for this comic which inspired me to shade Luna the way I did:

Hope you guys like it! ^_^

Thank you for not drawing the Mare in the Moon when Luna is clearly free.
That's not a pet peeve of mine at all. :iconajliarplz:

Well, better late than never, I hope... :blush:

This is an excellent portrait of Luna; the reflection is nicely done, but it's really Luna herself and her moon that make this drawing special. I'd have to say my favorite part of the drawing is her mane and tail, specifically how they seem to contain part of the night sky within them. (It's kinda hard to explain in more detail, but they don't merely look like the night sky so much as the sky itself seems to be within them.) Thanks for sharing!

Hahaha, thank you so much~! ^_^ And it's really nice to hear from you as well; it's been ages since I last truly connected with anyone in the past few months, and now that my workload is getting ridiculously high again I doubt I'll be able to post anything other than a few short comments or replies here (or in any comment thread, for that matter)...thanks for dropping by! =)

I've largely been absent the past couple of months, partly due to lack of time and partly due to other factors; over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to do my best to go back and comment on stuff that's been waiting in my inbox over the past couple of months, but I can tell I'm already running out of steam tonight...

Heh, I guess that makes two of us...just take it easy and comment in moderation. (Kinda ironic for me to say that, though; on Wednesday I didn't even sleep due to an assignment. Sigh.)

This looks really awesome! Luna's absolutely gorgeous, and cute too btw! She's always gonna be my favorite princess

What I also love is the night scene, it works so well and uniformly with Luna (obviously xD) and dark color schemes like this are one of my favorites.

Again very nice, the reflection/ripple effects and the moon look great too

Wahaha, the man of the moment! I really do have to thank you for this, you know; your art style is really inspiring, and I bet I'm not the first to say that. =D

In any case, I'm glad you like the picture, thank you so much! :squee:

You're most welcome man! And I just have to say thanks again for the mention and everything. I said it a bunch of times before but I never thought my artwork actually inspires people because to me it always feels like my art style in general is always a "work in progress", but it's probably normal to feel that way xD

You'd be surprised at how inspiring you can be! And I think it's the "work in progress" style that really makes your work look good, to be honest. :aww:

your blending moon color effect is good. Star's are good as well. You put some lightening effect. Those all things make Luna beautiful.

Did I never comment on this, really? Because I certainly meant to (and it's since disappeared from my watch notifications). My bad!

Anyway, yes, as everyone else before me has already said this is a lovely artwork of Luna. I really love the way you painted the moon, and the little sprinkling of sparkles around it is a great detail. Good use of the lens flare, as well!

It's alright, I understand how hard it is to keep up with your notifications given the amount of attention you receive! I'm just happy you dropped by at all, it means a lot. :aww:

In any case, I'm glad you like the picture; it's certainly something new and I didn't really expect this much of a response. Thank you~! :la:
