The Rise of The Moon by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen The Rise of The Moon by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
Edit: Featured on Equestria Daily! YAY!! Thank you so much!:heart:

Inspiration song: [link]

Great. I drew Cadance crying, now Luna. What is wrong with me? Please guys, don't kill me.^^''''''

I did this sooooo much faster, but probably because there are not so much details (feathers are really hard). And YES, I could do the eyes open. I'm kinda proud of that eye.^^

I did a lot of thinking how I should do the mane, I even did two versions. In the end I went with this. I don't know why I like this better.

For last, so much blue!XD

Hey InuHoshi, I was wondering if I could have your permission to "re-create" this picture a little? Like, maybe add some more sparkles to it or something? I'll give full credit to you if I do have your permission!

ShiningStarNova Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
This is so amazing, I love the way you can see her mane changing, the darkness creeping up on her... Wicked

O.O I can see how you made this picture with that song!

One epic song and make a epic picture to match!
JDavidBrony Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013
One word -- "Epic!"

gtasomogyi Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I LOVE this picture.
Are You a feeling-reader? o.O 'cus in the last months I feel the same: sadness and anger :/
(Exept crying, I wish I could find a girl who wouldn't mind if I were crying on Her shoulder)
Macbow333 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
The anguish and frustration of Luna and even the beginning of the rage of Nightmare Moon are captured in this one image, just as it is in the song. There is so much emotion in this piece of art, I don't think I can hold it all.
soultensionbenjamin Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012

That is the most bad ass Luna transformation picture i've seen thus far.
25Carrot Featured By Owner May 24, 2012
Exiled for a millennium and then to return to find that Equesteria expanded and prospered without needing her. I believe that there is a great deal of frustration and rage within her waiting to boil over.

Very good pic. Very emotional.
lanternjoe Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
"And everypony got by just fine without you! In fact, they were better off without you! They thought you were a children's story, because they couldn't imagine Celestia not being in charge of everything!"
"And now you're back, and they're laughing at you! They're all laughing at you! And they don't want you ruling, because you'd mess everything up again! They just want you to stand around and be laughed at!"
"And everypony you loved died! They all died, and you missed a thousand years of history, and you're never gonna see them! And now nopony's gonna love you again! And you're fat!"

*breathing heavily, in a cold sweat*
"... That dream again?"
"Yes... Tia? When can I... be me again?"
"Give it a few generations, sister."
"... How many..."
"Three, at most... Luna, if you hold... if you hold my failure to save you against me for the rest of our lives, however long that may be? I completely understand."

Could also be that I'm just too shocked from this epicness.

cajobif Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
Just.... why making them cry?

I hate seeing Luna cry. But the work is beautiful.

Now... I just want to hug her. Tight.
