For the Mare Who Has Everything (Luna Version) by Jamey4 For the Mare Who Has Everything (Luna Version) by Jamey4
I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and finally decided to actually make it. So here it is, a Princess Luna version of a wallpaper I did a while back:
I'm much more satisfied with how this one turned out when compared to Celestia's version. :)

Again, This was inspired by the 2nd episode of Justice League Unlimited, and a Superman comic book, both entitled "For the Man Who Has Everything":

Info on the comic:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For_the_…

Seriously, go check out the comic, or even look up the Justice League Unlimited episode:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXQ2pD…

Princess Luna has been forcibly trapped in a dream in which she is able to completely relive her childhood with her sister, where the nights are more beautiful than any night is in the real world; basically everything she ever wanted in her life is given to her in this dream. She grows up with Celestia, never being banished to the moon, or turning into Nightmare Moon, and lives a life of peace with both her and her sister watching over Equestria. Luna later finds out that all of it is just a dream, and knows she needs to leave since she has responsibilities she must attend to in the real Equestria. She walks out onto the outskirts of Canterlot in sadness during the middle of the night and looks back and sees a living memory of her and her sister as fillies. This is the last thing she sees before she wakes up, leaving her Utopian fantasy behind...

Wow, this is officially the best artwork I have seen on DeviantArt. I like the dark touch you added. I can easily see why she's angry. I especially like the effect you added to give it a cool feel. I like how the moon glitters and sparkles in the sky. As for drawing the ponies, you did an excellent job on that! They look very much like the ones on the show. I think the purpose is clear enough. Correct me if I'm wrong, she was sad that the other two ponies were talking bad about her or leaving her out? Well, nice art!
What do you think?

Very nice work on this piece. I love the feeling that it brings. I like how the ponies are kind-of translucent, a nice toutch. However, I don't really understand the background. What are older Luna ans younger Celestia and Luna standing on? Mountains? I get the feeling that you ment the younger versions to be memories. The light was a nice way to make this known. Another question I have, what is happening to the moon? It looks like it is going to explode. I'm not sure what you were trying to do there, the sparkles don't look like stars, because the are brighter near the moon, when they would have been slightly less bright in real life. I doubt Luna's magic could light it all up like that. But, the feeling makes up for the faults, and I like the piece overall.

I came across this one and was like holy shit I NEED THAT then I saw it was yours xD The moon is just amazing looking it really makes it stand out from the rest. Great job man!

I wish there would be an episode on the history of Celestia and Luna, how they came to be rulers of equestria, or an episode of what it was like when Luna was the Mare in the Moon

Thank you. That line of Supe's really sticks in one's memory.

I see you had the memory be it of Luna and Celestia as fillies. That is really fitting, though I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see what Luna's possible child would look like.

You have her go to the outskirts here I see. Does she and filly Celestia still have that absolute heartwrenching final scene Supes and his son had when the fantasy was destroyed?

:iconjamey4:
Jamey4 Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I agree and would have loved to see what her child looked like as well. :)

The reason why I chose to do it the way I did though, was because I wanted to focus on the relationship of the two sisters. There is a lot of tragedy and emotion behind the fact that the two sisters were once against each other, that's where the real drama is, and I think a lot of people who have siblings can really relate to that a lot more. I decided to go with the idea that one of Luna's greatest desires was to have the perfect relationship with her sister, they never fought, she was never banished to the moon, and they grew up in peace.

I want to leave the ending to this piece open to interpretation, but I suppose telling my own interpretation of the ending of the story behind this piece wouldn't hurt. Since it isn't about Luna's son/daughter, the ending is obviously going to be a bit different...

While she was sneaking out of Equestria while Celestia was about to fall asleep, she never told her sister the complete truth that she didn't think that she, or the world she was in was real, since she feared it would bring her sister too much pain and grief, just like when she banished Luna to the moon in the real world. But she didn't lie to her sister either. Instead, she simply tells her sister "I need to take on responsibilities outside of this place...I don't know if and when I will return..." She hugs her sister and tells her to stay and take care of "this Equestrian Utopia". She tells her this because she wants the last moments with her sister here to not be sad, but cautiously optimistic, and hopeful towards the perfect future that she knew her sister would have in this world.

She goes to the outskirts and looks back and comes across a living memory of herself and Celestia playing as children. She tears up as she vanishes into the night, and awakens into the real Equestria.


...I hope that version of the ending is good. :P If not, as I said; My wallpapers are meant to be open to interpretation. If you want to make up your own version of the story behind this piece, I welcome you to do so, and to share it :)

Well, I have to say, that's a well thought out interpretation, but as for my interpretation, well, now I'm not sure, especially as I've just seen you've done one for Celestia as well. I think I'm gonna pop around there in a moment...

But still, this is a very well done background.
