Incomplete In Defense of Equestria: Luna by SilFoe Incomplete In Defense of Equestria: Luna by SilFoe
I'm never going to finish this. Ever.

Not because I have no motivation to work on this or don't have the means and time to, but because I had started a newer, better version. There were issues in this one like Luna's armor, her pose, etc. and they bugged the hell out of me. But the main issue was a much better idea poking me in the back of the brain. It may seem like wasted effort, but I think it will be worth it. So here's this at it's stopping point.

I had wanted to put this up when I had stopped, but I kept forgetting.

What's with Luna's armor on her left wing? Has the artwork a glitch? Just asking. :)

Yeah, this was an abandoned piece so it's still very much unfinished and has a lot of errors in it.

u know for as much as u may dis like this version u have almost 1k faves on it 

the only things i see wrong with it are the fact u braded luna's mane/tail (is that even possable? lol) and luna's muzzel may be a little off 

other than that this pic is AWESOME as is 
(u take commisions? i might want serveral somethings in this style later on (if i ever get off my lazy ass plot hindquarters lol))

Thanks. A large part also was that I had a better idea for this picture series. It's being worked on in my big Saturday project.

I do take commissions, but I'm currently waiting on a new tablet to replace a broken one and have a queue of several commissions to get through first, though.

That's supposed to be Twilight, though I guess I can see how she looks a bit masculine here.

Yes, actually it's been in the works for a while now and it's further along than this one is when I stopped working on it.

Because there were too many little errors everywhere that fixing them all would take longer than just starting fresh. Those errors would always be there and always bother me, too.

Besides, I had a better idea that would meld better with the Celestia one.

Gotta say, this is one of my favorite art pieces of all time!

While the final in defense of equestria is a great one, I still gotta say I think this one actually looks the best (IMO, grain of salt, all that ;p).

Honestly, pretty much finished as is anyways in my book!

Nice to see the guards taking initiative for once, because they sure got to lazy and incompetent after hundred years of piece ( changeling invasion prove that ).

Hmm, that tail braid! It's seems to be very rare to see people attempt to style Luna's mane into plaits and such, but I find the idea to be a beautiful possibility, as seen here. A very cool piece of art as well!

I like the equipment designs, particularly the spear with the crescent moon. But my favorite part is Luna's tightly-braided tail. Much more practical for combat. Looks like Twilight still has a bit to learn in that regard. :)
