Alone in the Night by Jamey4 Alone in the Night by Jamey4
What if Princess Luna was never able to make peace with everyone after she was no longer Nightmare Moon, and cancelled Nightmare Night forever?

What if she was always striking fear into the hearts of others, no matter how hard she tried to make friends with them?

What if she was constantly being misunderstood, no matter how many times she tried to explain herself to others?

What if she had no friends?

This is how I would see her; Alone in the Night.

I really liked this, I can really feel the emotion here. There were only a couple things I didn't like about this, 1, a sad Luna is kinda overdone. There are lots of them out there, most not done as good as this which brings me to 2. Way to many stars. Otherwise, an excellent picture. Really only those 2 things, and that's just because I'm really, really picky. I would like to see you do a happy one, or make this one wallpaper size. *tries to think of something to fill up the last 15 words* Three, two, one.
What do you think?

Love the result of this and it does a great job really showing the crushing sadness Luna must have felt. Quick question, do I have your permission to use this piece in creating a cover art for ReverbBrony?

*slowly comes up to here*
Gonna cuss the morning when it comes
Cause I know that the rising sun
Ain’t no good for me
Cause you’ll have to leave

Gonna make the most of every mile
Do anything to make your smile
Land on my lips
And get that gratious kiss

Hey! We can "What if" all day. That's what my 4th grade teacher would always tell me.
I love the background all the shades of blue really fits Luna.

To answer the questions simply: she'd spend way too much time on the Internet. =p

Anyway, I love how the moon silhouettes Princess Luna as she sits on the outcropping but it doesn't block her out. Thanks to the misty ravine below enough light is reflected to keep the moon goddess well lit — or perhaps it's just the rock itself that needs lighting while Luna's shine comes from within, despite the teardrops. A hazy sky still lets the stars twinkle and dance, making the patterns more interesting as the haze thins out in places.

Most importantly is how Luna is looking down, still unable to see all the good that her night brings — ironically because her own light reflects and overpowers all that's below. But as long as she's here then there's still hope. :)

P.S. Thanks for making it the perfect wallpaper size. :)

Would it be possible to get a happy Luna version where she is just looking off in to the distance? I love your wallpaper but her tears make me sad...

I can probably make an entirely new Luna wallpaper with her looking happy, but I really don't want to alter anything in this wallpaper. The good news is that I've improved my skills a lot since I made this wallpaper, so if and when I do make a happy Luna wallpaper, it's gonna look so much better than this I imagine. :P
