Lunadoodle16 by SilFoe Lunadoodle16 by SilFoe
Sometimes lunadoodles get out of hand... 

There was originally a vampony in there, but he was ugly. You can see that version here: sta.sh/01l2tc1tvqfb

On a side note, my armor design for Luna continues to evolve... I kinda like the buckskin (the kind of leather) and fur trim. It seems kinda weird for their world, but it might have a more psychological effect because of it. Plus it looks cool and I like Luna seeming more savage or barbaric in warfare compared to her sister.

Luna is already best pony... and this is epic pony.
The battlebraid fits her perfectly, as does the use of leather.
Jup, armor evolution could be more fairly thin leather for the hindlegs and perhaps studded leather for the forelegs. Oh, and lightweight wingblades.
Celestia is definetly more the general-in-full-plate-mail-stand-your-ground type.
Vampony takes the focus from Luna in my opinion... so this one I like a lot better.
Again, great work!

Thanks again!

I admit to having a bit too much fun coming up with unique pony armor.

And yeah, the vampony had to go. He gave some context, but otherwise just detracted from the image.

On the shot, I found this pic to be be awesome.

Then, when I found out it was you who drawn it. I said.... YESSSSS!!!!!!

I really thought it was based on the armour Luna wore  in the fanimation "The Fall of the crystal empire" until I checked it closer. I really like that determined look in her eyes.

It's a cool concept to have Luna in that armor. Psychological warfare with leather =P .

Though, I prefer heavy armor like Daedric armor.  The black with red hue flowing up through the armor.

Luna would be bada$$ in that armor.

I'm seriously at a loss for words. This is too perfect. This is exactly what I would imagine Luna's armor as before the peaceful reign of Celestia. This...makes me want to actually write a fanfic...May I use this as a reference?

interesting concept , specially the taboo part. the fact tha she want to be more treathening than his sister fits her good.

Luna.- but hurricane if i wear this ponyes will fear me.

hurricane.- then its fitting his purpose well, when i see you fighting u are many things but friendly its not one of them luna, your sister may have all the diplomacy she wants to aid those man loving unicorns, here in pegasopolis actions speak louder than words  and when sompony or gryphon its not willing to adapt to ecuestria customs and laws .we can show them a good old halberd diplomacy.

I love the idea of leather armor being used as a psychological effect on enemies.  Definitely adds a subtle brutality to their look when going against other creatures, or even other ponies, that look at that armor.

Interesting how the horn appears to be ready for physical attacking. And the armor wouldn't be weird in their world, remember, the writers of the show said they intentionally put in things from different time periods so watchers can't pin Equestria to any one time period. You can give a pony roman armor, like the guards, a modern military outfit, like Spitfire, or heck, maybe even futuristic armor, and no one can call shenanigans.

It's not the style of armor that I meant, but rather the material, namely that leather. Like, where would the leather come from? The sheep and cattle have been shown to talk, so it's not from them (unless you like REALLY dark headcanons) so that leaves some other kind of animal or monster which have also been shown to have higher-than-our-world levels of sentience. Plus they're a vegetarian society so the idea of wearing another creature's skin may be kind of taboo to them. Eh, who knows.

Well, I know they're vegetarian, but other species, namely Griffons, aren't necessarily. 
Also, it seems like if it doesn't talk, it's still treated how we treat our animals.
The first thing I can think of to support that is the fish that Fluttershy fed to two otters.
But I get your point though. That's something for me to think about.

I like it. (A lot ;) )

Nice to see that somebody finally uses some cloth in addition to the armour you usually have. It doesnīt offer quite as much protection but depending on what you do it can be enough.
The Skullshaped helmet has a nice touch with those teeth giving off a more threatening impression.

Though as usual the backlegs are wholly unprotected. In a ground struggle that shouldnīt be a problem but in a more open fight that can quickly become an easy target.

What I also donīt get is why her backside cover has spikes along its sides. Seems kind of useless to have those.

I'm glad you like it!

The idea I have of Luna is that she prefers light armor that favors mobility so some non-metal protection would be necessary. I couldn't really think of decent armor for the back legs at the time. Likely, it would be more leather if I continue to evolve this look. 

Do you mean the few spikes down the top of that croupiere? They are useless. Just decoration to compliment the teeth on her helm.

And I would have left the vampony there. He may be ugly, but he's also being shred to pieces.

I hopped into your live stream to look at it from time to time but never listened to you talking about it; I'll admit, due to the smoky feel of the vampire I assumed you were doing luna fighting sombra XD

Either way, great work on this one: not sure which is better, the one with a vampire or the one without
