Lunar by Sakaerion Lunar by Sakaerion
My first attempt at drawing an alicorn, or any pony with the Celestia/Luna body proportions. and OMG it was difficult. This represents about 15 hours of work on my part. But I think it was worth it :D

EDIT: thought the moon's outline was too jagged, so I went back and smoothed it out and re-uploaded.

EDIT (AGAIN): [link] #28 :D

Wow, when I saw this on EqD, I didn't even realize it was yours at first. It really is probably my favorite piece of yours yet! Great job, my only criticism would be that the eye looks a little too big.

Funny, when I tried drawing an alicorn, I actually found their proportions easier compared to regular ponies. At least I don't get that weird feeling like when I have to draw a head two times the size of the chest.

Of course, my Luna doesn't look one third as good as this.

its not that its inherently harder, it was just something novel to me and took me longer to get the way i wanted it. i can draw a normal pony in a few minutes ive drawn them so much, but the different proportioning threw me off.

I can't draw worth crap, trust me. After 3 years of trying, I still haven't improved. I'm more into kitbashes and writing stuff. But, this is a great piece. Nice job on it.

The second one. A lot of JJ's stuff is shit, so I felt the need to clarify that it was a compliment, not an insult.

thanks :D i just got a tablet recently, so im fairly novice at digital art as a whole, so i sat in on some of his livestreams to see how he worked. hard to transfer many of the skills since he uses photoshop and i use gimp, but we both use airbrushing and inking, so thats probably where most of the similarity comes from.

Beautiful. The amount of detail here is absolutely impeccable. Your work not only gets better as you keep going, it gets PHENOMENALLY better - it shows in every drawing you do! Keep up the good work man, the only way from here is up.
