Night of Thousands Lights by Bonaxor Night of Thousands Lights by Bonaxor
Luna, named by some races Selene ( Dragons, Minotaurs and Wolvari), is capable of controlling the Moon and the Light of the stars. But, before she even discovered her real powers, before Light allowed her to control the Moon, Luna had been taking care of very special flowers, named the Astri. As a child, Luna LOVED gardening, she could spend whole day in her big garden taking care of all her favorite plants. But the flowers you can see on this picture are special ones. One day, Luna saw her very first falling star. She saw that it fell somewhere in the forest, and went to see what it was. She found a little asteroid, that held in its core the seeds of these flowers. And without anyone noticing, she planted them in her garden, not knowing that these very flowers would begin her great journey towards mastering the sky itself. You see... the light of the stars was quite similar to the flowers. When the flowers were closed, they weren't shining, when they open.. their beautiful light would shine for whole night. Luna learned how to control her flowers, and later used that to control the light of the stars, by "closing" them like she used to close her flowers.

This has such detail to it, added it to my favorites! hate having 100 words Xd but here i go. Luna for one looks just every joyed, as the blue flower gleam as bright and beautiful as the moon, as those thin lines across the navy twilight sky look really like shooting stars, the canterlot castle looks exactly like it would or so close i can't tell, and that cloud slowly rolling near the moon, brilliant! not to mention Luna's necklace crescent moon glowing is so cool as her hair blows on the windy night! very well pic all together!

Okay this is going to be on the harsh side, I think it's time to step up your ponies. Why because I believe you can, I'm looking at this (as well as other work in the gallery) and I see a similarity between them; the backgrounds and props are getting very detailed, however, the ponies in general are holding a very show accurate style. In this picture for instance there is a high level of detail in the railings, flowers all the detail around Luna's collar/necklace very elegant and well done. Then I look at her face and it's nicely done, but it's nothing special in comparison making the picture feel off balanced. Basically to me the heavy vector lines around the pony are like training wheels and I think you're more than ready to take them off. In contrast, I don't see it as an issue when doing comics as they are more about the story than the detail of each frame. As always this is my opinion take it as you will, feel free to comment back.
P.S. I couldn't draw this to save my life right now.

You got a wonderful idea about those flowers" origins. Quite original. Of course, I like so much that you draw Luna.

That's why I like this piece and find it wonderful. It's good to see you getting better and better with time. I like that necklace.

Wonderful work
