Update: Cleaned up Luna's eye

Right so here's my entry for the "Ponies playing with toys" contest that is currently being run by Equestria Daily.

Interrupted the final touches on my folio to get this done, well worth it in my opinion! I do believe this is the first time I've drawn Celestia and I must admit I feel like she came out pretty well.

The basic idea is that Celestia walks in on Luna playing with the pink Celestia toy and new Nightmare Moon toy. Enacting a battle. I expect Luna to be using phrases like:

"Pew pew pew"
"Bow to your new queen!"
"Now Equestria is mine!"

Celestia in her infinite wisdom is amused and I expect her to take control of the pink Celestia and turn the tides of Luna's imaginary battle.

Having recently watched a tutorial by the very talent Patrick Brown I tried a new method to get better looking shadows and I think it worked pretty well still no where close to his stuff.

Background was a bit of an issue and I literally stumble across the idea of the gradient circle. There just wasn't time to churn out a proper background. However I must say that I do like the way it came out, much better than I thought the simple circle would.

Back to the folio!

I'm not a fan of Pokemon. I don't hate it, I just like pastel coloured magical talking equines better.

Maybe playfully. Although I'm betting she'll just ignore it and go grab some cake.

Luna's excited to play with toys of herself and her sister. It's a great stress reliever, doncha know?

But, seriously, everyone's on model, the colors look good and it's a fun concept excecuted. I wish you luck in the contest.

Thanks very much! Yeah I'm hoping I do okay in the contest, but even if I don't it's good exposure off of EQD. As far as quality goes yeah I feel like I've levelled up a little with regards to my digital stuff. Even now looking back at some of my early offerings makes me wonder what I was thinking.

Still glad to see stuff I've picked up through practice on get put to good use.
