What is see here is an art style I don't frequent terribly often in this fandom. Whereas most the art I come across is either done in the style that mimics the series or takes it to a serious level of depth and detail, this artist's style crosses the two and takes what is best from both. The depth and detail to improve the impact and immersion provide by the piece, while retaining the cartoonish tone that makes it easier to look at and comprehend.

This particular picture made me stop and look at is again. "This is beautiful." I said, words that don't often cross my lips. Too often I find other pieces to be flat or the style over done. Yet, what I find here is the ability to blend the flat tones of their coats with the slight luminescence of their manes, all the while keeping near perfect shading and depth.

The emotions of this page are plain to see, yes. It doesn't make them any less powerful. Being a Luna fanboy at heart, it tugged at my heart strings to read this page. The emotions from the words translates perfectly into the vision of the page, ensuring the rise of emotions that surely the artist was going for.

The only negative thing I have to say of this page is Celestia's upper back flank in the last panel; it seemed slightly off. A better artist than myself could give exactly what is off about it, but writing is my medium. Something about the shading or the fact it is in context with Celestia and Luna's heads makes it seem a bit flat. Overall this does nothing to negatively impact the page because it still looks good.

Essentially, this page belongs in the category of the "one in a thousand" pieces of artwork that stops me and makes marvel at its beauty, and to the even rarer category that begs me to stop and leave a comment. Well done Mr Brony that cannot be explained.

This time, things will be different. This time, things will be better. This time, we are ready.

Be brave, little sister. The darkness is coming, but it shall not take you for another millennium.

Princess Luna was corrupted by the comets. Thats why she is upset Im sure of it and if im right no i didnt look ahead or anything this is a hunch i have when i first saw this. So im not spoiling anything. Unless im right :/. Love this art btw you have done amazingly well. 10 ponies/10

Luna's mane in that last panel is fantastic!
tealshift Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013
That part with "we'd have already lost" has me stumped.
Allanpike Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Oh boy... this isn't going to be good.
BoneSatellite Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013
Luna's mane looks pretty good; deep enough to be a portal to the sky, but with one or two points of starlight shining far enough to reach past her neck.
HaileeMizuki Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013  Student General Artist
My critique is here cause it's so short.

You forgot the wings in the first panel and in the last panel Luna's wings are to small and short for her body. She should have wings that match the size of celestia's.
oh man i totally forgot

okay i will go back and fix these thanks

oooooh lordy... Celestia and Luna are crying scared. This is gonna be bad, isn't it?
L4m3ness Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013
Hmm, Luna's mane seem to stick out a lot due to the difference in style. Maybe it would be reasonable to make the rendered graphic more transparent, or add more blue to it than black :)

I didn't know Luna kept a whole universe in her mane look at all those small galaxies and stars...
