Commodore Luna by MarbleYarns Commodore Luna by MarbleYarns
I'd been wanting to do another picture of Luna, and after a long drive (and reading too much C.S. Forester) this popped into my head. What started out as a simple drawing of Luna then turned into a full fledged scene. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out...and personally, I think Luna makes a pretty dashing commodore.

Painted in Sai.

Edit: woah, thanks for all the positive feedback! You guys totally made my week!

and then luna became the head of equestria's sea-faring military divisions. guess it'd make sense considering that she controls the moon, and would therefore be able to control the very seas they sailed.

Dude, you can never read too much C.S. Forester. I thought he might be an influence for Cpt. Luna but wasn't sure. basically, what I'm trying to say is this is awesome, Luna is awesome, your art is awesome, Captain Luna is awesome, you're awesome.

Oh wow...

Just what is she seeeing there? Something not good, is it pirates? Of the dread Nightmare Moon?

She doesn't look good as if she has had little sleep and something is following them? Maybe a cursed vessel?

I can see a story here in the painting and I am excited by it. Awesome drawing.

Seriously, it actually looks like it's become coarser from salt spray.

The question is what she could have spotted to unsettle her like that?

Might it be a pair of frenc frigates?

Or could it be their entire armada?

She is the very model of a modern magic alicorn. She's kind but fierce and badass, cross her and you'll wish you'd not been born...
