Captain Luna: Interlude by MarbleYarns Captain Luna: Interlude by MarbleYarns
Dearest Sister,

I am still at least one day south of Neighra Falls, and yet I can already feel the faintest hint of the arctic on the wind–almost as if it knew I was about to fly out and meet it. The ship is making a brief supply stop, after which I will resume the northeasterly course we discussed and make for the first Tower.

As I shall be crossing the 43rd ley division within two days, this is the last letter I will be able to transmit until the return voyage.

Love Always,
Luna


An atmospheric piece from my ongoing adventure tumblr with Captain Luna [link]. I do so very much love painting in black and white.

A special thanks to Lauren Faust & the MLP team!

The wreck- oh boy, if the quality of the writing is half of the art's, the unsubtle foreshadowing won't do much to lessen the impact...

Also, I still love the design of the vest. I figure wings feel nice and cozy in one of those.

I love the feeling of motion! And the detail in the costume, especially the sleeves for her wings, is exquisite!

Also, fore and aft hat REALLY works for ponies doesn't it? The shape of the head, the ears, that kind of hat makes more sense for a pony than for a human!

Saw this on EQD, and man, I love the art style you have. Also Luna is Best Princess AND she's in nautical garb? Supreme Victory!

Had to follow the blog, too. Looks like a neat story so far!

WRECKAGE of the Corona Borealis!? Just what did I sign up for here? I'm just a newfoal who thought it would be fun to navigate on an airship! I don't even have a formal unicorn magical education. I wonder if it's too late to request a transfer

That's... Funny... No matter how I look at this I can't help but see AJ instead of Luna...? It must be the mane since I'm not accustomed to older Luna with powered down hair.
