Mare in the Moon by Jopiter Mare in the Moon by Jopiter
"I am the Princess of the Night, thus it is my duty to watch over your dreams."

Luna is my favorite pony; mainly because of her association with night, solitude and space! I tried to convey that through this piece; the moon might have been a place of banishment, but I feel it could also be a place of retreat for Luna. Just another quiet night relaxing under the stars. She might be a bit socially awkward, but maybe she just needs people to show her the way.

I took the liberty to give Luna a special "Space-Kid" set of accessories, and made them look like black crystals with cyan highlights. It's very Tron-esque, but it's not meant to be electronic. Anyway, it's a little personal touch.

Now before anyone says "the moon doesn't work like that", to that I say "Hah!"

I do not remember if I already stated such, but I downloaded this a long time ago now, and every time I look at it, I stop and think 'my, is that not beautiful?', for it truly is beautiful, be it in it's own right, or in the grand scheme of things.

Love this, by the way. Though somepony looks utterly bored up there... :o
