The Night is Young by Zedrin The Night is Young by Zedrin
A digital painting of young Luna I did in about 1 hour 26 minutes.

I really like how this one came out, made sure not to make the same mistakes I made in my Celestia painting, yet at the same time it bugs me that I made those mistakes on Celestia. D: She's forever doomed to be second to Luna in my heart. ;-;

This is pretty impressive for a painting that took less that 2 hrs to make :) The pose is a difficult one to pull off, but you seem to have done it! The stars look great, except the ones below her seem to lose some of their perfection compared to the ones above her. "The Night Is Young" is a good title cause you chose to paint the younger version of her. I think your best detail in this are probably the feathers in her wings. You gave them each a clear shape and great shading. Feathers can be difficult to figure out how to place and how many to draw but you seemed to get that right :aww: Love the pose of her tail, mane seems a TAD awkward. Eyes look great. needs a little more shading under the ear where it would shadow on the hair. Horn is well shaded, but some of the lines on her horn are crooked.

Overall, for a speed painting, this is pretty darn good!
What do you think?
