Raising the Moon by TurrKoise Raising the Moon by TurrKoise

Speedpaint-

And here is Luna!

Luna is best pony! My god I love Luna!! I really do like how this one came out! Alot better than the Celestia version in my opinion! Anyway the Speedpaint will be up tomorrow probably!!

This actually took 3 attempts to get done!! the first time my computer randomly restarted and i hadnt saved it, the second time SAI completely froze so I had to close it completely and then the 3rd time SAI was going real slow but I managed to get it done!

Now I'm gonna upload the pictures joint!

Art (c) me
Luna (c) Hasbro & :iconfyre-flye:

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON'T JUST FAVOURITE THIS PICTURE!!! PLEASE COMMENT!!

Did you use a special texture for the mane and sky? I want to try it out...

Truly awesome. But you misspelled that word. "Raising" means "to life something [else] up", where "rising" means "to lift oneself up."

But the art is woot. :D

Oh yeah? What if I just want to stare at the image, come up with comments and constructive criticism, and then just leave the page, hm? HM?!?

Ha, kidding. Generally it's a great pic (you have over 300 faves on it, you should already know it's good) but a few things stand out:

Wings: The underside of that wing is not well done. Neither real wings nor MLP's wings have uneven coverts (smaller feathers nearest the bone) like that, they're meant to be smoothing the air flow to the rest of the wing and if anything should be MORE orderly than the primaries/secondaries (the big ones). It's fine next to the body but in the middle of the wing it looks a little messy.

Hair: The hair's outline is not nearly as smooth as everything else, which makes it stand out quite poorly, especially on the back of her neck where the gradient direction seems wrong (it's distinctly brighter towards her neck rather than towards the light source, I'd have expect that side to be shadowed by her head/neck). Also, that the part on her neck and her fringe have no purple outline make them look very unlike the rest of her hair.

Limbs: Generally fine but the lifted leg looks a little thin.

Moon: Clearly not a circle. That you went for a crescent stops it matching its sister image and means we're left with those two points by Luna's head, which would be fine (matching her symbol) except that they have rounded points and further emphasises that the moon isn't round, and neither is the chunk missing from it.

I think the most important bits here are the hair outline and the moon, because they actually take away from the picture. In comparison to the linework on Luna they look like they were drawn by someone else. The wings don't stick out as much but certainly well-drawn wings can really add to images.

And that's all I have to say. :) Sorry if it comes across as harsh, that wasn't my intention!

Thanks but see I draw everything by mouse. I don't use a tablet so I can't get the features you say to be smooth, well smooth. My body constantly shakes for personal reasons so I can't make lines as smooth as they should be.

Very few people can draw large circles freehand, surely vector tools would be fine for bits of background? I'm guessing the six-point stars aren't freehand.

I know how to get big circles onto SAI free hand. I just felt like giving a creset moon in this picture. The stars were made using the curve tool in SAI so in a way yes they were :|

But a crescent moon is 1 circle overlapped with another (darker) circle?

Yes! She is best pony. I love her too. Each time I see her... I just want to hug her. Tight.

I like the big wings you gave her and her tail who blends with the night sky. But...uh... the head seems kinda too small.

Very beautiful work.
