Fireflies by JoelletheNose Fireflies by JoelletheNose
I worked 16 hours in a 26 hour time span at my job. I'm exhausted, so have a cute Luna.
I really needed to unwind with something messy and colorful and sparkly...

"Sister, look! It's like a little jar of stars..."
I like to think that under that formal and regal demeanor, she's just a kid at heart. Eyes full of wonder at simple things, things she probably missed when she was stuck on the moon.
Featured in ED's Drawfriend Stuff #1320!





Of course she's going to set them free afterwards, why would you even say that?

My Little Pony - Luna...*Gasp* I absolutely love this artwork! So you're the one who made it. It's undeniably and unbelievably magnificent. Her hair is so beautiful, and her eyes are especially adorable. I also love how endearing her expression is as she beholds the little glowing sparkles. This piece is so enchanting! Really a very lovely artwork! Clap

Thank you so much! ^-^ I'm so happy you found your way back to the original. I know my stuff, especially this drawing in particular, ends up scattered pretty far across the internet. Thanks for stopping by! =)

That is a gorgeous visual. The glitter is a nice addition to her mane, which is beautifully drawn! Slightly messy, To look more realistic. The eyes are probably my second favorite part. They are detailed with nice transitions of shades of blue. Her eyes are quite Kawaii and shiny. This has a Starry Night feel. The fireflies glow like the stars, and Luna represents the dark mysterious tree. It also has strokes like the painting. This is the best deviation i have ever seen, and it is clear you worked hard.Woohooooo! Rose =D (Big Grin) Heart

I love her mane flows and surrounds the jar, and the stars in her mane mirror the little stars she's discovered :).

 First off, absolutely amazing wallpaper. I especially like the lighting of the fireflies :D

I justed wanted to say though that this dude uploaded your work on his profile. He created his channel just days ago so I was curious if we was stealing it.

Thank you so much for letting me know! He absolutely does not have permission to reupload it (and apparently has also taken this one and actually cropped out my watermark). I will be contacting him immediately.

Thank you again! :D

Why do I tire of counting sheep

When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

To ten thousand fireflies

I'm weird cuz I hate goodbye

Got misty eyes as they send farewell

But I'll know where several are

If my dreams get real bizzare

Cuz I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

Such a beautiful artwork of our favourite night goddess! :D
I love how innocently she is watching the little fireflies. Yep, Luna definitely has a childlike side to her :)
