Luna with her first pet. by Bonaxor Luna with her first pet. by Bonaxor
READ THE DESCRIPTION!!!!

L - Tia! Look what I found! - Luna screamed overjoyed while entering the room of her sister. Celestia was so absorbed in reading her newest book that she hadn't even looked at her younger sister.
C - What do you want Luna?! Cant you see that I'm reading that book, dad gave me yesterday?
Luna came a bit closer, standing right behind her.
L - Oh please Tia! Just look at that marvelous creature. Its almost as big as my head.
C - Wait....did you just said.... - Celestia immediately turned her head to see a giant spider standing right on top of Luna head.
L - Isn't it beautiful? - right after Luna finished saying that, Celestia screamed out of fear, running out from her room as far as possible from eight legged monster.
Little Luna stood in the same place with big smile on her face. She looked up at her pet saying with joy.
L - I bet she is in the kitchen. Shall we check that my little fella? Hihi.... - Luna left the room and followed her sister's footsteps.
L - I think I'll call you Yellow Dot. What do you think?



Little pic I made today. Its one of my old sketches that I wanted to paint.

As you can see...its Luna with her very first pet, Yellow Dot.

BIG HUG FROM LUNA AND ME FOR EVERYONE WHO FAV IT:D

MLP: FIM and Luna belongs to their rightful owners.

First things first, you should be commended for having the guts and emotional fortitude to put Woona's face close to a spider like that. As well, the art is really, really cute. Nothing I say below will change my opinion of that, okay?

Now, obviously there aren't any flaws with Luna - it's really just the spider that could use improvement. There are two main factors I notice about it that could be tweaked:

Proximity to face - I can tell that you were going for the whole "cutesy-thing-resting-on-top-of-head" look, and you succeeded somewhat. However, people in general aren't very comfortable having anything so close to their face, let alone giant spiders, so you're fighting an uphill battle right off the bat.
I think it would be better if the spider were more firmly on the top of Luna's head, instead of being so close to her face.

Spider design - Spiders can look very cute when drawn properly - indeed, many in nature are, by all measure, adorable - and I can tell from the way you drew Luna that you're definitely capable of drawing cute stuff. Honestly, though, the spider needs to look different in order to be cute.

The spider's legs end in these big talon/spike things, which are very close to Luna's eyes - a few centimetres, and the picture takes a turn for the grimdark. The spider is also curling its legs around Luna's face/head in a very possessive manner, and that gives the impression of a very subtle, creeping evil. The hairs around its mouth/pedipalps also need to be rethought, because that kind of bristly, aggressive hair just simply isn't cute. I'd either remove it entirely or make it more like fur. Somehow.

In general, the spider should be more like a tarantula hat in its design. That is, make it rounder, and have the legs be bunched up and hairy (not bristly) so that it's sitting on Luna's head like a fuzzy, adorable toque. If not that, then at least move the legs away from Luna's eyes so that the viewer isn't subconsciously worrying about it.

I hope that helped, and I'm sorry if it came off as a bit bossy. I'm not really a visual artist (words are my craft), so I can't claim to have much experience in the field, but I figured I'd do my best for an artist looking to improve.
What do you think?
