Speedpaint: Let It Go by SilFoe Speedpaint: Let It Go by SilFoe
I happened to be watching Frozen while working on this request and already had gotten through most of the tonal work when the movie reached the "Let it Go" song. Yeah... it fit too well. Kinda like this www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm9xmm…

The request was for Luna painting stars in the sky. So I gave her a paint bucket... and that's how the Milky Way was formed.

Time ~1.5 hours with few hours of distractions and technical issues

If I ever get a good chance to, I kinda want to come back and polish this up.

I really love the shading on this, and her pose is so fluid and flowing. =D

Was this made before or after the movie Frozen was made?

After it was made but before I had watched anything except that song.

Her head is too small, but for 1.5 hours, I'd be lucky to have a sketch with my sluggish speed. Nice job!

Please!!! Polish it up!!!!!

This is awesome! My new destop wallpaper. Not only because she is smiling, but the scene itself is majestic and beautiful. Even if she is using a bucket instead of a paint brush.

This makes me smile ear to ear. So visually appealing.

Take your time. I don't want to push you. I'm sorry if you felt I did.

I like this piece mostly because it's not too cliché. It's original and like I said visually appealing. And the single fact that she smiles. Seriously, a lot I've seen drawn her sad, crying, melancholic or angry. Alas, few of them depict her happy and smilling and I mean solo pieces, not with her sister Celestia. A lot would say like me that smiling Luna is best Luna and you did drawn a good amount of her smilling.

Why do you think I like a lot your Luna works? And the rest of course.

Oh no no, I just wanted to make sure you didn't get your hopes up that it'd be done anytime soon. Never even thought about being pressured.

I like it when they're happy. They deserve it. I know I love to draw them in serious business mode, too, but there has to be some balance there.

This is pretty nice. I always find the images of Luna basically "making" the night to be pretty visually sweet, and this does not dissapoint.

Of course, the most the show will probably give us is her entering people's dreams and controlling the moon :p (On that note, one has to wonder what the stars in the show are, whether they're identical to the sun like in normal reality or different objects altogether like in a lot of fantasy/RPG series)

Yeah, I'm curious about the stars too... They apparently have the ability to free Nightmare Moon. I kinda want that explained too (perhaps in a comic or something).

Really nice! Although I think "Let It Go" fits more with Celestia. Mostly because she is the older sister...  :D
