Regal Princess Luna by 90Sigma Regal Princess Luna by 90Sigma
"Thy Princess of the Night hath arrived!"
Thought experiment: What if Princess Luna were of the same stature as Princess Celestia? This was another image I had intended to create for a long time but didn't for some reason. The finished image actually 'works', to my surprise. She looks quite adorable and pretty! I'd love to see how the animators would draw a 'full-grown' Luna.

The adorable expression on her face might just displace my current Nightmare avatar too...

Thought experiments: Daymare Celestia | Naked Nightmare Moon | Nightmare Luna | Regal Luna
Additional Files: NLR Dress version. Closed wings / Normal accessories version.

Thanks to NightmareMoonS for feedback while I was creating this.

This is absolutely beautiful. You have perfected Luna into a Goddess, not a mere Princess.
He style, pose, vector, mane, pallette, accessories, , wings, are brilliant.
The mane is sparkly and smooth, perfect size. The Accessories are Royal, Important, and perfectly synched to her glorious, curved body. The colors are vivid, but mysterious, and her expression is of Majestic Mercy, and Understanding. The wings are expressing importance amoung this Queen, and they take control over the artwork, making them one of the key parts to this vector.
I have never seen more precious and realistic vectoring approach to Luna's greatness than this one. Little details just add so much variety, and still the simplicity in the piece Reigns among all other aspects of it.
In conclusion, it's Wonderful. I have no other words to say about it.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

This is absolutely perfect! I believe when she gets a little bit older she will look like this. I am in love with this piece of artwork.Luna 50X50 (icon smaller)

Ok I'm making a character sorta like luna and nightmare moon would have been a good name but that would be copying so does anyone know some names similar to nightmare moon I could use? also awesome picture Free Luna icon 
EcliptorCalrissian Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016
I guess by now you've already done whatever you're going to do, but if you did still need it, I'd say... Luna/Nightmare Moon is already herself. If it's not an offspring or Nyx type situation, I recommend going your own way entirely.
Sweetpuppy76 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014
Good one. She may look older like this soon.

I remember when I first watched the show, this was what I had wanted Luna to look like, and was satisfied with her revamp in Luna Eclipsed.  Though she's still smaller than Celestia, she was at least taller and had the magical flowing mane, looking more like an adult and less like a filly.  I never did like her Season 1 design.

Can I use this? For my Tumblr asks?
ThinkPink866 Featured By Owner May 15, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Now THIS is how Luna is SUPPOSED to look! :D
It always bugged me that Celestia looks like the taller and more superior one.
I can understand with Cadence and Twilight, with them being younger and probably not as powerful as the two regal sisters, so they wouldn't look like this.
But, isn't raising the moon supposed to be equally as important as raising the sun? Which was kind of the big thing as to why Luna was banished...? It just feels a little awkward seeing Tia and Luna together on screen since one of them is always looking or the other looking down. I just think that Luna should look more similar to this but anyway...
LOVE THIS! <3 :)

I love the way you did Luna's mane plumper than Celestia's. I have always wanted to see what the princess of the night would look like if she was actually grown up/fully achieved. I also like the way you did her crown in your own style. The princess's shoes could be tweaked a bit to make them look prettier though. She looks so wise and eager to greet her subjects. I am absolutely IMPRESSED by your compassionate deep thoughts on your art. Well done. This is amazing.

Crimsony69 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2013
Now this is the proper way to respect Luna, the fact that they make her look small and weak just adds insult to injury after her banishment. Sometimes I wonder if Hasbro tries to make Luna look worthless... No matter! as a bat pony I will always stay faithful to my dear princess of the night! 
90Sigma Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
I don't think it's Hasbro that decides how Luna will look. Personally, I'd rather she look like a true equal to Celestia, but I think the animators try to make her look younger and less mature, so to speak, when compared to her older sister.

90Sigma Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013
It's kind of coincidental that this overlapped with the second revision of Past Sins. This Luna wasn't based off the description in Past Sins - I'm not even sure I had read the relevant scene when I drew it - but it still sort of fits. :)
