Magic Pond Luna by macalaniaa Magic Pond Luna by macalaniaa
This is my 1500 Watcher Special Picture. It took me over 50 hours in total to do it and i'm very happy with the final result :).
It's young Luna after her defeat as Nightmare Moon. She has to Restore her Magic energy by using a Magic Pond. That was my Idea behind this picture ;)

Done with Photoshop CS5 and WACOm Intous Tablet

Write me your Opinion in the comments :)

Thanks for all the support in the last year :), you all are awesome !

Edit: so many people asked for a wallpaper size, so i changed it to a higher resolution for 1920x1080 :)

This art piece really caught my eye,
it really feels like she finally found the place to get rid of her problems the surrounding matches her really REALLY' well.

About the pond that's the first time i hear about it, and i think it would fit the official story plot very well ( but first we need Luna specific episodes for that to happen).

Character Design seems perfect aswell, nothing negative to say. The only thing that doesn't match the whole body is the tiara ( yeah it does look wicked but in the same time it just doesn't match her "personality")? I will give you 4.5 stars because of the tiara.

But still... Why did you use Celestias tiara (recolor)?

This piece really caught my eye when looking through the stacks of pictures in my messages. I feel the colors you used really connect, and Luna found this special, relaxing place just for her. I think you did a wonderful job on the highlights and shading, as well as putting her reflection into the water. Over all I would give this a complete five stars. You did a wonderful job on the water falls, ripples, and splashes as well. There is no doubt that I have found my new desktop background. Keep up the amazing work, this is truly beautiful!

Simple beautiful dahling~ I love the effects and everything just goes together so well. Luna's hair was always my fave when it WASN'T deity-ified like Celestia's.

Good work~ //faves!
