The Moon Rises by Yokogumo The Moon Rises by Yokogumo
"Huzzah! How many points do I recieve?"

Finally finished this piece. This was originally supposed to be for day 2 of the NATG but I only had a sillouette finished come submission time. Oh well. Here it is all finished. Very glad I took the time to finish this one properly.

EDIT: extended the sides so that it fits a 16:9 ratio, because someone on Reddit said it would look nice as a wallpaper.

EDIT2: YAY! Drawfriend on EqD! Thank you so much everyone!

Would you mind if I used this as the image cover for the petition to canonize the fan song of the same name?

What exaclty does the petition want to do? I'm fine with people using it for other fan produced stuff but letting someone use it for a petition implies that I'm endoring the aim of it, so I'd like to find out exactly what it is first if you don't mind.

Totally understand.

Don't know if I see the point really of trying to get a piece of fan work made part of the official cannon. The work has the same merit whether the producers choose to recognise it or not. Plus I'm of the opinion that fan and official work should remain separate, as fan work very often loses sight or takes a different angle on what the original subject matter was trying to achieve. I'm going to have to go with no in answer to your question. Sorry.

To employ one in the very few of direct quotes I've managed to retain from any of Dickens' works, "You needn't make the least apology, my dear"! While it remains my conviction that if there's the chance of making an artistic improvement by incorporating the series with a work/characterization/concept on par with or even transcending it, it's always worth the ol' college try of both the fandom and the show's creative forces, I can respect your own views on the matter. Thank you for at least lending my request your consideration.

Would I be able to use this as an image for a story of the same name based on Ponyphonics song of the same name? I would give credit to you of course, I just can not think of a better image as it matches in mood and name both what I am writing.

Of course you can. That's one of my favourtie pony songs. :) Just so you know though, someone else is already using this image for their fan-fic, but as long as you're not bothered by that, then by all means, go ahead.

Why thank you very much! And no, I don't mind at all about someone else having used it already. It is a great photo after all! I will be sure to give you credit.

You did a wonderful work of our beloved Luna.

I like the wings you gave her. I didn't see much drawing of her like this. Bonus point for that. Question: do you think of Luna when you see a full moon? Or just the moon? Put as my new wallpaper. Thank you for resizing for that.

Yokogumo Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012  Hobbyist
Thank you.

The moon reminds me of her on occasion, yes, but in the same way that other things remind me of other characters. Apples for example, or cupcakes as well as several other things. :D

Thank you. As I've said before, wings are some of the most epic looking things there are in my opinion, so when I had the chance to draw this, I had to make the most of it. :)

Wow.

This...this is just awesome.

Seriously. I can't even attempt to do critique on this. Amazing to see how brilliant your stuff can be when you have the time to do it right.

You MUST submit this to EqD, Reddit, and anywhere else you can think of so it gets the attention it deserves.

Thank you.

I submitted it to the late gallery on EqD if that's what you mean. How does one get on Drawfriends? Is there a submitter or do the admins scour DA for pony pics?

Also, yeah, might post this to my reddit account.

Essentially just send an email to submit@equestriadaily.com and preface the subject line with the word ART. This work won't violate any of the rules visible at that link, but it might be a good idea to check that page out, anyway.

Good luck!

Thanks for the help buddy, but somebody on Reddit beat you to it with the advice on how to submit to EqD literally five minutes ago.

On the other hand, submitting to Reddit was a fantastic idea. Thank you so much for the idea. My inbox has been getting favourites on this all day because of it. :D

Thanks.

A new standard for shaded drawings at least. I'm down by a submission though, so the next few will be in the show's style so that I can catch up. Also, this one was done over a few days, so it was bound to be better considering I had way more time.
