The complete video of that shot is over there: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW5n3k…

Still frame of the huuuuge project that's currently taking up most of my time. Colors of the BG are courtesy of my awesome wife :iconanima-dos:.

She posted the first shot there there, too! fav.me/d53lwox

As demanding as it is, it's fun and a good practice.. not to mention something animated that I've been longing to do since january >.>

I may post more as I go along, but I don't want to jinx the project by showing too much ^^;

Enjoy :D

this is beautiful, being an animator as well, I understand how much time and effort it takes just to do a simple 5 second hand drawn animation, or film.

so many frames, intbweeens, break downs, keys, drag and follow through with the tail and mane, the walk cycles, useing arcs , joint breaking to make the movement less stiff etc. Its a lot of thought to be put into an animation. Incredlily most so with something as big of a project as this is.

I look very much forward to seeing this animation once done.

Whhat i think will happen is when people watch it frame by frame they will think the animation short cuts that are used even by professionals as "mistakes" or "bad animation" but if you look at any animation in depth they would see they cant do every.single.little.thing, there have to be short cuts to help an animator not loose his or her sanity. xD

I know.

trust me.

So, I look forward to seeing the beautiful stills and colors come to life.

do you know when you will be finish with said project?

I must question something about this, the description on the little video ([link]) said this was after Discord's defeat, and the origin of Nightmare Night.
This is what confuses me.
If this is supposed be before she'd been banished, why does she have that Season-2 Look rather than Season-1? O:

:iconlionheartcartoon:
Lionheartcartoon Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
Our theory is that Celestia either uses a spell for her mane OR that the control of the sun gives her the look that she has. Luna NOT being connected to the moon at the end of season one and getting that power back by season 2 could be the reason her look has changed. (Story-wise, not studio-design wise)

So for Children of the Night, Luna is still in control of the moon, thus her mane and tail exhibit the characteristics shown in season 2.

This reminds me of a question from the season 2 finale. Luna had to fly in through the defensive shield to take up her post for the night. Does that mean she lives somewhere else right now? This picture makes a lot more sense. She looks like she's either singing or making a declaration.

I love how her mane interacts with the moon's light, and the colors are brilliant. High praise to you and your wife. Great job!

Wow, this is lovely. owo And to be in the makings of becoming an animation? Even more amazing.
The two bits of art I've seen so far for this actually almost made me think of an animatic sort of thing I saw the other day for a very awesome fanmade song.
I look forward to seeing further progress on this project as it goes. owo It looks like it'll turn out splendidly.
