Distress in victory by chickentech Distress in victory by chickentech
Luna's banishment. History calls this a victory; Celestia calls it a tragedy.

This took forever, boy am I glad it's finished. I think this used more layers then any painting I've ever done. And I realized decent looking hair is neigh on impossible. I need to find some good tutorials for it soon.

So what art should I do next? I'm thinking maybe some Gravity Falls fanart. Oh or maybe How to Train Your Dragon. Hmm options...

Photoshop CS6 || Wacom Intuos 3 6X8 || ~∞ hours

sta.sh/0sfolmsli7r version without the saliva if you don't like it.

There are a lot of 'closed mouth, silent beautiful tear' pictures out there. But this really captures the acute grief. Because yes, grief is ugly: there is shouting, tears, and slobber. Not pretty to see, but this captures it masterfully.

If she felt like this on the day she sealed her, imagine the 1000 years after, 1000 years of regret and pain she hid within herself, is a miracle celly didnt went insane

Saddest day of her existence.

So happy to know how well it ends. A millennium later, though.

Awesome work
