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

Another Production still from the currently ongoing project.

I've already moved to another scene so I thought I'd show this one!

My wife also posted the shot that comes right after it too!

Why does the city remind me of a Chinese town? Or is it just me being silly?XD

Anyways. Well done.:)

The expression is partly unintended.. I just rendered a still frame from the animation in the scene.. just happened to be when she was at the end of her blink ^^;

true mid frame are othen odd when seen ouside of the context they where in and made into a single still (i always found it amuseing that someone animated "that"(as in any) frame) but hey i dos fit.

This is an absolutely insane project you've undertaken and I'm having trouble listening to anything but "Come Little Children" these days because of you. I cannot wait for its completion.

Is it going to be just that musical number, or will it be a whole story with the musical number as a part of it?

:iconlionheartcartoon:
Lionheartcartoon Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
Just the musical number.. we're only 2 people working on it ^^;

"It tells the tale of what woud have been the origin of Nightmare Night, and the catalyst element that forced Celestia to banish Luna.

After defeating Discord, Canterlot was witnessing a very slow recovery. Misery could still be found everywhere around, specially for the ponies that had less means.

Luna thought that expanding the kingdom and founding a new pony colony elsewhere would give a solution to the problem, allowing the ponies that she would choose for the matter, a new brand future. Celestia refused the proposal of her sister to scatter Equestria. For after such a great lack of harmony she thought it could shatter the kingdom forever.

Being denied and in the shadow of her own sister, Luna decided it easier to ask for forgiveness than permission..."

Read the description of the video, and I think this is a great concept, but, one thing, why isn't she S1 Luna here? Because personally, I thought that Luna didn't have this model before she became Nightmare Moon? But I would be very pleased if you could explain why she looks like this instead :)

According to Lauren, she looks like this at full power. She was weak when when was de-nightmareified.

I bet Luna is doing some sweet Film Noire narration there.

"The City never sleeps...You look at the City and what do you see? All the crimes on the streets, commited under the cover of my beautiful night. You promise all those ponies justice and try to be a mare of your word. But all you can do is stand on your balcony and watch down on the city, knowing that your job will never be done..."

In my opinion you dont even have to like the show, to appreciate all the work you are putting into this. The animation and art are amazing and beautifully done from what is done so far. The music fits very well. I would have loved to hear one of you singing it, but I'm not going to complain about it. It will be amazing, and I will probably download it to save it forever on my computer in case youtube wants to be evil...

Heehee :) I'm no singer.. nor is my wife ^^; I doubt we would have done justice to either the fandom or the song by singing it ourselves.

We're happy doing this project as it is right now :)

And indeed, animation is for all ages.. however we started with the community in mind for this project :)

Nice depth in the composition, and very cool lighting. My only criticism is that Luna's expression seems odd from here.

It's a beautiful and quite peaceful picture, and I love the lighting bringing Luna into focus without taking away from the lights of the main city. She looks a bit concerned about something though, not alarmed but perhaps explaining that troubles her. Overall she's lovely but she doesn't look exactly right: the one thing that sticks out is that her dock looks off-center. (Take any of my observations with a grain of saltlick.)

The open balcony is wonderful, and I'm guessing it's designed for takeoff and landing as well. It all looks good with the mountains in the back, and especially with some stars peacefully twinkling; the clouds however seem to be a bit anxious, slinking through the high city on a nervous wind. (Or maybe I'm just reading way too much into it.)

Keep in mind that you are seeing a single frame from a less than 5 seconds shot here :) In a short film like that, rarely does a frame (or a shot) ever stand alone :)

That being said, we can't over-perfect everything as we have to keep the project moving but the composition itself is made to make luna and the lights below the center of attention :)

And yes, the balcony was designed with a pony with flight capabilities in mind ;)
