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! =)
