The Dark Side of the Moon by naboolars The Dark Side of the Moon by naboolars
"...Everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon"
-"Eclipse" by Pink Floyd


Nightmare Moon from the wonderful My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I think this picture takes some of its style and feel from The Last Unicorn, which was lurking in the back of my mind. Drawn in Photoshop Elements.

And if their laughter thunders in your ear
You cry and no one seems to hear
Those ingrate ponies will be singing different tunes
When they all see the dark side of the moon

Whoaaa-ooaa-ooaa...

Which poem? Do you mean the lyrics to "The Moon Rises"? If so, then yes, you may. Just credit ponyphonic with the lyrics.

Oh, well it's not mine! I'm only borrowing it myself :) Credit Pink Floyd with that one. It's a great song and there's much more to it than what I've used here.

A combination of both beauty and awesomeness, worthy of being an object of worship. A shame we will never see this aspect of Luna again, or explore the circumstances leading to her imprisonment.

Hello naboolars!

By any chance, do you have a 19201080px version of that picture? I'd love to include it in the MyLittleKaraoke project ([link])

How did you do all that amazingness in Photoshop Elements!!!
Reply
:iconnaboolars:
naboolars Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks :) Well, it's not the best program for drawing, but I used a tablet, and I redrew all the lines a couple times to get them straight. For coloring, I used the blur, burn, and dodge a lot. And there were around a dozen layers. But mostly, I just spent a ton of time on it.

naboolars Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's an older Wacom Bamboo tablet. The drawing surface is a little less than 4x6 inches, so it's small, but waaay better than a mouse.

Oh ok! I want to get a Wacom Bamboo Connect Pen Tablet it seems the most cheap and efficient, also do you have any tips on drawing? Mostly pony related.

this never happens , and i mean never
im all a out the vgm , i hate songs with lyrics , they all sound like shit (with notable few exceptions) and more often cover up somewhat decent sounding music

but this song , this voice , as soon as i started signing i was just drawn in to the song , it practically overshadowed the music with it's shear vocal talent

i don't know who sang this , but they can sign for all my luna songs any night.......
