Thou wert not sent for Slumber by the-Orator Thou wert not sent for Slumber by the-Orator
Most glorious night!
Thou wert not sent for slumber!
~Lord Byron, Childe Harold

Created this piece yesterday. I had a lot of fun with it! Luna's hair gave me some trouble for a while but I figured out the tricked to get it to look the way I wanted eventually.

I'm getting better at backgrounds! At least I think I am. lol

Luna is property of Hasbro and Lauren Faust

"The Art of War", "Sabotage" ... plus one book with the NATO star on the edge ... Luna is a strategist and tactician. :-)

Well she has been gone for 1000 years. There's quite a bit of history to be catching up on.

Absolutely fabulous--Can hardly tear my eyes away from this pic! I love how her stylish cape (nice soft lunar/nighttime color choices for the cape and the whole scene) is slightly askew, as though she raised the moon for the night and immediately dove into her reading, hardly thinking of anything else as she became engrossed.

...and the cape has also handily fallen in such a way so as to accentuate her shapely, um, cutie mark. *cough* :devilish:

Well played Byron quote, too--Is Celestia on your list to receive a similarly splendid scene? :sun:

Ooh! Nicely done!

The lamp (it is a lamp, right? lol) seems out of place. It's illuminating the floorspace, but it's not really glowing itself...

Just my opinion, great work though! (I feel like drawing something now... >.-.>)

i wonder if she's read "The lusty argonian maid"

or maybe if shes worthy enough an elder scroll, wonder if equestria even has one...

Who hasn't read that book?

As for the elder scroll, she's the closest thing Equestria has to a god. She is worthy of it.
