Jewel of the Moon by XNedra22 Jewel of the Moon by XNedra22
Edit 11 Nov 2012, 8:47 AM: OMG guys seriously! This was featured on EQD's Drawfriend #623 [link] Thanks so much to whoever put this out there. I really do appreciate it. I appreciate everyone's support, it drives me to keep doing what I love doing.

Part one of two for :iconzinthos1986:. I really like drawing an older/more mature Luna. And her show jewelry is sad, so have some awesome Tungsten Carbide/Moonstone goodness.

I saw :iconsajira:'s take on Luna and I loved how she used warm tones in her mane as well. So I thought I'd give it a shot. :)

Really like how did the highlights in her mane here, and the revised regalia suits her very well.

Beautiful rendition of Luna.

I like the use of image of star sky in her mane. Also, the choice of attires that I find quite lovely.

Wonderful! There is something about the way you combined the flat paint of her body with the rich color and texture of her mane that reminds me of Chinese paintings.

Hmmm...I am afraid I do not agree with Tungsten Carbide...I think Black Bronze would be a more regal choice (plus it has a nice purplish color,) I also would have chosen diamonds, but Moonstones do seem more appropriate!

Also, my theory is that her show outfit is black velvet embroidered with white gold wire/thread...Comfortable and fit for a princess!

Thanks so much! I actually have never heard of Black Bronze, this definitely merits research! I just knew what color I wanted, and since I know that Tungsten Carbide is that color, that's what I went for lol. I don't know much about metals really. Though I am dead set on Moonstones.

I hadn't thought of the show outfit being something like that. For the show it's fine, it just doesn't feel natural to me when I try drawing it.

MEEP thank you so much Noxx! I've never cared for the show jewelry, it just needed more pizzazz! And I really loved the idea of putting pink/warm tones in her dark hair, it brings in a nice contrast with all the blues. I was inspired by :iconsajira:'s work. :3

Thank you! I wanted to do the stars differently than I normally do them, and I saw :iconsajira: play around with warm tones in Luna's mane, and I wanted to give it a try.

Thank you so much! I was, in part, inspired by :iconsajira: and her use of warm colors to offset the princess's similar tones in body and mane color.
