Princess Luna's New Dress by SakuraKaijuu Princess Luna's New Dress by SakuraKaijuu
The pony art continues! I just cross posted this to my tumblr (GO LOOK AT MY TUMBLR. FOLLOW ME BECAUSE I'M AN ATTENTION WHORE : D [link] ), and my tumblr description was pretty damn good! So I'm just going to copy it here!

I reeeeally wanted to do a Princess Luna piece (I think her design is lovely), and “Green Isn’t Your Color” made me want to do something with pony dresses (Holy crap that one Fluttershy dress. I want a person version of it.)

Since I didn’t know what I really wanted, I asked my good friend Allison for some dimensions to work in, and she thought an extreme horizontal would be nice, sooo I did.

Tying it all together…well…Luna at Rarity’s shop made perfect sense, but somehow the Crusaders keep sneaking their way into my drawings. Little rascals. (lawl)

For Luna’s dress I pulled the color from her eyes to the main fabric. The sash and appliques are not set in stone, but, as you can see, it’s a work in progress and the colors can be changed if Luna wishes. :D

**EDIT**

Holy crap you guys! I never thought this silly drawing I put too much effort into would be so popular! I'm kind of blown away by it all : D Thank you all so much for you views, faves, group adds, collects, and watches!!

I'm really proud of this in spite of its silliness and I especially appreciate all of the comments from people who thought this was actually from the show/looks just like it! (Not that any of the rest of your comments are any less dear to me -- the positive feedback from this piece is almost overwhelming!)

Thanks again and I hope you continue to enjoy my pony art : )


****SECOND EDIT****

HOLY CRAP. As I write this, this piece is at nearly 10,000 pageviews. o_O Thank you so much (again!) for all the adds, faves, views, and shares. It really means a lot to me!


***THIRD EDIT*** (March 2012)

Wow! I'm still kind of blown away by the number of views, favorites, and collection additions this piece has received. I'm so happy that it's brought so many people a little more cheer in their days! I'd also like to thank everyone who added this picture to a group. At this point it's a member of 21 and counting, and I didn't add any of them myself! So thanks again, guys, for being awesome.

Add me to the list of those who love this whimsical, cute illustration! I can imagine Rarity muttering "Of all the worst things that could happen..." and so on.  :) (Smile) 

Apple Bloom clapping icon : Do you like your new dress, Princess Luna?
Clapping Pony Icon - Princess Luna : (blushes, in her Royal Canterlot Voice) Uh, well... we have never had a dress quite like this one before, my little one.
Clapping Pony Icon - Scootaloo : Does that mean you like it, Your Highness, sir?
Clapping Pony Icon - Sweetie Belle : It's Your Highness ma'am, Sccotaloo!
Clapping Pony Icon - Princess Luna: (friendly tone) It pleases us that thou were all so thoughtful to design and create us our new frock with thine own hooves. We recognize and commend thee for thy creativity and effort. In short, thou three all doth rock. Nod

if that actually made it into the show it woulda been really cute. Like having an episode when celestia and luna pay special attention to the cutie mark crusaders you know.

it does look incredibly close to show footage... but the only thing you would have to work on is a very... very minor set of proportion issues to get them direct from the show correct. however, i still believe you have done an excellent job with the piece.

Thanks!

I appreciate the critique, too! However, that said, I'm not as concerned with getting things perfectly show accurate, just in trying to have fun with the drawings, which I did!

If you go through and look at all my pony pieces (which there are a silly number of), some of them are more show-accurate than others. The style is so easy for me to emulate, that a lot of the time I don't bother with reference (especially for OC ponies or adaptations of non-pony characters), or if I'm really familiar with the character model (Fluttershy), I don't always bother with reference, and sometimes it shows. But if you even go through Lauren Faust's pony art, it doesn't look quite like the show, because they're not hand drawing the ponies or backgrounds -- they're using flash puppets and set pieces : )

and with all of that said, you have done a great job on this artwork... but it is true, green is not Luna's color...

Indeed! Guess who's going to have to pick up all those beads and glitter?

(She'll try to make the girls do it and then have a control freak spaz attack and shoo them away to do it herself before she yells at them more.)

SakuraKaijuu Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
Haha, yeah. I drew this over a year ago, and before the crusaders had had any serious development, so we didn't know that Scootaloo has trouble flying : )

Lawls, it's all good. I actually like it better than all the gags about Scoots not being able to fly :) It's always nice to see a step in the other direction for a change

SakuraKaijuu Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012
Fair enough! : D

It's just funny that we know so much more about their personalities now, and this was drawn just over a year ago. I think it didn't occur to them to make it a "thing" until this season, which is fine, because it gives Scootaloo something to work at, and showing kids that no, not everything that seems like it should come easily does right away. Which is an important lesson : )
