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.

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)

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?

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 :)
