The moon rises [PIRL] by colorfulBrony The moon rises [PIRL] by colorfulBrony
So, a random idea I just got, I think it turned out quite allright...I always ahve problems turning a day picture into night, probablly because I don't rly have a way to do it, I just mess around until it looks right ^^
Anyways, hope you like it (I love it to shade LUNA btw, it has a certain satisfaction...kinda hard to explain)
Also little side note, it is this beach, I saw an amazing fullmoon rising, it was so amazing you wouldn't believe it, it looked quite lame on photos but was stunning to see it in real...still puts a smile on my face, remembering that moment when a full cicle of white came out of the clouds :D

Wow, awesome experience, that you told us! To see a fullmoon rising... it must have felt so epic and emotional. I'm always so happy to read about that kind of experiences ^^ And I bet it is that experience that inspired you to make this Luna PIRL! Which is a great one... I can't believe this was originally a day picture, it looks like it was a night picture from the start! Which means you did a great job!
I also love how Luna's mane and tail are designed with the FX elements. Only (minor) thing, upon a closer look it seems that the mane and tail share the same layer for FX, while it might have been slightly better if they had separate layers. But that's being overly critical really, this work is awesome ^^

Awesome job on this. I like using Luna in my PIRL's (cause best Princess) but i hate shading her. It's so difficult to shade her, mostly because of her mane. Thus why recently ive been putting her as a transparent spirit in they sky (which we have seen used in canon in "Nightmare In Ponyville") so i don't have to shade her :D

Sure she is! :D

Well some parts are hard to shade, but you get the hang of it after a time. Also the dark blue in combination with black shadows looks so damn amazing imo.
I don't shade her often, but when I do it's amazing :D
I always made her mane transparent. 1st it's easier 2nd it looks better if adding some glowing effects 3rd I think that'S how it'S supposed to be with s2+ LUNA :D
