Princess Luna by bloodrizer Princess Luna by bloodrizer
Princess Luna drawn in semi-realistic style.

First it was a generic cyberpunk pony request, and after a short discussion on IRC I decided to go Luna route. (Thanks to everyone for hints and feedback :V)

I freaking hate myself for forgetting the horn. Probably should redraw that crap.

A damn fine piece, my good man, though I do find it slightly disturbing, I think it is edging on the uncanny valley.

Yep, it does indeed look uncanny. :)
I thinks that was a part of the idea - to take an original concept and make something weird from it.

Still a jolly marvellous piece of work and would defiantly like to see more MLP related content in this splendid but realistic style.

Very nice job job on dimensions and lighting/shading. It makes it pop out at the viewer in my opinion.

Although it does look kind of freaky, course that's semi-realistic for ya.

I think I'll revisit it later and make it a bit more cute. (And also fix damn't missing horn)

The realism is fantastic along with the light and dark values. Plus her mane is breathtaking.




I have a compulsion to make this my wallpaper now.

This is absolutely fantastic. The coloring and composition came out wonderfully. I also love how you went away from the normal cartoony look and actually gave her a realistic face. Wonderful work.

probably because most of the community is used to much more cartoon-like, idealized images. This is just a lot more realistic.

I... To be honest, I think it's her eyes that freak people out. She looks like she has no eyelids, no eyelashes, and one eye is slipping off her face. If I were you (and I'm not, so feel free to ignore this), I'd move the closest eye up and towards the nose a smidge, to match the further one- which looks a bit squashed, now that I mention it. And her nostrils are lop-sided, too.

Thanks for your comment :)
I used real horse for anatomy reference. Their eyes are almost exactly like on picture.
As for symmetry and perspective I completely agree with you, it could be much better.

The reason why this picture is so uncanny is that I did not tried to draw something cute and canonical. I rarely draw for the sake of drawing. Usually I try to accomplish some goals and learn something as artist. Here there are some things that went good (metal, texture effects, composition, color zones distribution of the skin, etc) so I think the work was worth it.

No problem. :3

I guess it's been a long time since I looked at a horse... Hhm. But I do remember my old nag Bumble having lots of luxurious eyelashes and the pictures I Googled seem to have the same, as well as a sort of... I guess I could call it an eyelid-groove? Like here: [link]

But you're right- the effects are pretty awesome, I love her mane in particular. :D

Where's her horn and wings? Are they gone for realism?

:iconbloodrizer:
bloodrizer Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Somehow I forgot to draw a horn. My bad.
As for wings, I believe it will be impossible to draw them correctly due to the perspective angle.
