Vanity of day holds thee entwined
Driven by hubris and boiling with sin.
Masked by the sun, to truth you are blind
Slaves of the light that you may bask within.

Coolness of gloom oft reveals the truth
Safeguard against the cruel light.
Rise, Lunar Princess, bring darkness eternal.
Protect us, shrouded in everlasting Night.

From all of us here at SFS, we're wishing you a Happy Halloween and Nightmare Night! (It was one year ago today that Luna made her reappearance on the show.)

Song is Daylight's End. You may recognize it as the theme for Diana (League of Legends) during her launch week. You can get the song here: [link]

Thanks to Shadeoses and HC for rendering and vector assistance.

I'd like to give a shout out as well to *spiritto and ~Lionheartcartoon (the team behind Children of the Night) for some intuitive help on their blog, [link] You'll notice this drew a bit of inspiration from their work.
I've wanted to animate something with Luna involving Daylight's End the moment I heard it. This was my first time working so heavily with After Effects. The end result not only produced one of my favorite works to date, but also (with help from HC, one of our top vector and effects artists) granted me a lot of experience with After Effects, and Illustrator.
Snowdrop is still underway, and can be expected to have similar levels of visual aesthetic.

Also... Hot damn! 2000 watchers! Consider this my milestone submission.

Programs Used (in order of significance):
Adobe Flash CS6
After Effects CS6
Photoshop CS6
Illustrator CS6
Adobe Premier CS6

"Daylight's End" by RiotRuann
