Both and One by MarbleYarns Both and One by MarbleYarns
Full view please!

Light is the left hand of darkness
And darkness the right hand of light
...
Like hands joined together,
Like the end and the way.
-U.K. LeGuin


Night Mare Moon and Luna...both and one.

Hatching with ink has always been one of my favorite ways of creating shadow and texture, and I wanted to see if it was possible to apply it to a digital painting in some way. I also tried a different overall approach to the painting as well, and I'm really pleased with the result! The overall style is a little closer to the way I actually draw when working with traditional media.

Luna why are you so cute I didn't even have to try

This is a good picture, but Luna doesn't really look like Luna, sorry. If it weren't for the bit of her cutie mark that I can see, I wouldn't have known it was her at all. Nightmare, on the other hand, is very recognizable.
