Day 22: A Friend by dreigun Day 22: A Friend by dreigun
Day 22 submission for the 'Newbie Artists Training Grounds'. Today's theme was a pony with a friend or hanging out.

I spent a lot more time on today's picture, and used some experimental shading. I also tried to do away with linework entirely, without letting it get too sloppy. I'm pretty pleased with the end result.

Dear Sister Celestia,

Today I made a friend for myself, the first one in 618 years. But it wasn't even the mythical Golem, and it crumbled when the moon orbited into the full moon position, and sunlight parched my friend.
I miss you so much. Why won't you let me go home? I promise to do whatever I need to do to make up for the crime I committed 618 years ago. Please, my dear sister, here my pleadings. I'm so lonely.

Your Crying Sister,
Luna

Dear Sister Luna,

 

I am so sorry. What I have done was persuaded by all the ponies of Equestria. I wish I could bring you, back, but as you know, I cannot for a millennium. I'll see you in 382 years,

 

Your unhappy sister,

Celestia.

I've only seen three episodes and I'm not that much of a fan but this picture is beautifully done and very sad all at once. Bravo.

Luna's sweet mane, just when I think I've seen it all, just when I think nothing can possibly be even sadder, even more heartbreaking, even more gut-wrenching than some of the MLP:FiM art I've seen it before, you come along and ratchet it up another notch, or two, or ten.

Really, this is... I don't even have words for it; that is so absolutely and utterly pitiful, so touching, so heart-rending. There's pictures of Luna that make me want to give her a big hug and tell her everything will be OK; this one makes me want to squeeze her until she can barely breathe, and hold her for the rest of my (and her) life. Just looking at this picture is enough to make me cry.

I salute you - it's rare for a piece of art to move me quite this much. Well done indeed.

Wow, thanks -- that's pretty high praise! It feels really validating for my efforts to hear that it affects even a few people so strongly.

Oops, the host pointed out one of the groups I accepted requests for featuring this picture was a shipping group. I didn't even realize, haha, maybe I should correct that so it doesn't give the wrong impression.
