Princess Luna Bust by ShadOBabe Princess Luna Bust by ShadOBabe
(TINY EDIT: I changed the size of the drawing a bit to match up with the size of the Celestia drawing. I wanted the pictures to look more uniform.)

Okay, seriously, I gotta cut this out.
I got more important things to be doing right now. But I can't stop!!

So have another deviation everyone!! XDD
Decided to make a series out of this after the Princess Celestia's bust drawing I did.
Again, first time ever drawing this character!! And again, again, she was surprisingly easy to draw once I looked up a couple refs on Google. Guess the princesses just really work well with my drawing skills.

So I hope all you Luna fans enjoy!!
I am off to bed in a bit!! Love ya!!

Oh cool! I wasn't expecting you to draw a Luna bust to complement the Celestia one! ^^~ This definitely was a pleasant surprise to come home to after a rough day at work!
*chuckles* It's nice to look between your Celestia and Luna busts and see the difference in their expressions. While they both look pretty uniform, Celestia has a very calm, sweet sort of air about her face when I look at it, whereas Luna here has a bit of mischievous edge to the tilt of her eyes and the curve of her mouth. Then again...I could just be seeing things, since I tend to see a maternal figure in Celestia more and a playful younger sister when I look at Luna. ^^; Now that I'm thinking about it, isn't there something said about how the viewer's beliefs and thoughts help to shape what they specifically see in art when they're looking at it? Opinions and perspective and all that.
Regardless, I love how she turned out! I think you're right; there's just probably something about the way the princesses are designed that complements your particular drawing style rather well, because it seems you have little trouble at all, having drawn both of the Royal Sky sisters now. Then again, it could just also be in part due to your keen eye for detail and memory for such things! X3
Once again, lovely work hon! :clap: She looks great, and as always, I look forward to seeing more of your art!

Yay!! I knew you'd be happy!!
I forget though, is Luna your favorite princess, or is Cadence?
Because I know you love Luna, but I also know you have that special connection with Cadence and Shining Armor. X3

It's cool to hear your take on how the expressions in the drawings come off to you. I didn't have a set goal in what I wanted the expressions to say, but when looking at Celestia it kind of comes off as calm and sweet, like you said, but also just a bit happy or amused, like a small child nearby said something adorable. And then Luna I almost drew as not smiling at all, and looking quite serious (since I see her as occasionally having trouble breaking out of the old school, rigid formality or being a little bit skeptical or pessimistic), but I decided, no that's not fair. She should be just as content in her picture as the other princesses will be. So I gave her a relaxed looking little smile, like she's quietly enjoying an inside joke with someone (probably Celestia). Yeah I've heard that before. I totally believe it too. X3

They are REALLY fun characters to draw, these Pony Princesses!!
Aww, thanks hun. That's such a nice compliment!! *hug* I can't claim that my memory helped me here though. I'll need references for all these pony characters until I've drawn them enough to commit them to the character design library in my head. XDDD

*gigglefits* But of course.
To answer THAT question, while I love Luna dearly, Cadence is my favorite princess. I do like Celestia, and can relate to her on a couple levels (as you know from some of our phone calls,) and I love Luna as a character and can relate to her really well, Cadence remains my favorite. Probably fro many of the same reasons that I love Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. (I think you'll remember those phone calls we had discussing her.) Because whereas Celestia tends to represent that caring, warm, maternal aspects of a monarch, and Luna both represents a bold, protective monarch (from what I've read in the comics I've been able to get ahold of, not that Celestia isn't protective, I mean, just look at how she tried to take on Chrysalis and protect everyone else) and at the same time the socially awkward gap between a monarch and her people... Cadence sort of transcends all those aspects. She's protective, but she's also sweet and caring. She can carry herself very regally and perform her royal duties well, but she is also able to relate to people well and can show the side of her that's not royal. She's very much like Princess Aurora for me, and of course, I adore both her relationship with Twilight, and her romance with Shining Armor. (Sorry, this turned out to be a wall of text! ^^; )

^^~ I think it's interesting to see how you just managed to capture those small aspects of their personality without even trying. I always see Celestia as being very good-natured and relaxed and happy. *chuckles* Though I wouldn't have minded if you drew Luna frowning somewhat. I agree with you; it's very much like her to slip back into rigid formality (considering she's been out of the loop for a millennium,) or, from what I gather, to be slightly more pessimistic, considering Celestia's so optimistic. But nonetheless, she turned out great with a smile, and I wouldn't be surprised if she and Celestia WERE enjoying an inside joke. After all, there are several times in the series where you just see the two of them exchange quiet smiles, and you have to wonder what sort of silent communication is passing through them. *giggles* I do love the Royal Sky sisters.  I know, it makes sense, right?

Well, I look forward to seeing more of them in your style! ^^~
And of course, you're always welcome! But hey, your memory DID help you, somewhat, even if a lot of your work was thanks to the refs you found~!! It helped you to definitely give that extra personality to their expressions without really realizing it.

Gotcha!! Cadence is my least favorite. But you know, it has nothing to do with her personality. They haven't done much with her in the show to make her that interesting, but she's GREAT in the comic where she and Shining tell the story of how they fell in love. I'm just like, "What were you guys DOING when you designed her rig in the show?" That teeny, tiny nose with those huge eyes, and the way her chest sticks out (they did that with Luna too, but her chest plate hides it), and then her hair style. She looked great as a teenager though, and again, the comics make her look fine. I'm just not a fan of the adult Flash rig they use in the show.
I hope she has more done with her in the show though. She probably will since the Equestria Games are being held in the Crystal Empire.

I love them too!!
And yeah, I like the idea that the sisters are opposites in a lot of ways. Like Luna is often serious and formal on the outside, but has a playful side that certain things can bring out. And then Celestia is often playful and relaxed on the outside, but has a serious side that can be brought out of her. I think it reflects what they've had to deal with and how they personally chose to handle it. Celestia has had to face centuries of problems, routines, etc. So to make it more bearable, she tries to find contentment in everything. Luna has had to deal with centuries of isolation and feeling inadequate. So she puts up her serious demeanor as if to say, "Yes, I am a ruler, and I am a GOOD ruler, look at the perfectly royal way I carry myself", but at the same time she's starving for some social interaction, and just wants to have some fun.

Hey, that's true!!
Heh, thanks hun!! :hug:
