The Moon's Reflection by SierraEx The Moon's Reflection by SierraEx
So today's weather was pretty average, heavvy rain and wind, so i thought "time for art" little did i know it would take me the better part of ALL DAY.

this is probably my most detailed piece, it's still a little sketchy but i like it, yes its another Luna landscape, because there was no other character that i tought would fit, maybe celestia but nah.

Edit: Flipped due to composition

I love this picture as a whole. But with that said I'd have to say that the way you textured the bark on the trees next to Luna was by far my favorite part.

The environment around her is beautiful! but it does seem out of form slightly as of the texture and borders but i still think it came out awesome!

This looks simply beautiful.
+Watch.

Though I don't quite get what you meant by that reflection. Care to explain or its supposed to be more of a mystery?

why her reflection is her old self? there wasnt really and real reason behind it, as i said in the description i was going to do Celestia and use one of the fanon images of her younger self (with the plain pink mane) but i decided to do Luna because i really like her new look.
But mainly because i liked the idea of her still seeing her "old self"

Well, don't cite me on that, but from what I've read(Thats from Lauren, I believe).
There is ONE Luna. Not old and new.

Season 1 Luna is the Luna who lost her powers after Elements of Harmony defeated NMM in her. In season 2 she simply got her powers back.

If you look at episode one intro, their manes are similar there. Just like in S2.

yeah but the whole thing is seeing her younger self, could have done the same thing with any of the mane 6, their reflection would be their filly selves :)

Wow! Absolutely beautiful and stunning! I love the background - the colors are so soothing and peaceful. The water looks very nice and detailed. And poor Luna - I wanna give her a hug!

One thing though - in her reflection, the tip of her horn overlaps the plants in the foreground.
