"The Face of the Night"
Text from the article:
"I spotted this particular piece on the way into work one morning and really liked its subtle use of color to depict our princess of the night. I especially like the way the eyes are drawn upwards. There’s a small aura of sadness around this picture, but also a small glimmer of hopefulness.
I don’t know where most of you were when the princess returned to us, I myself was in the basement of the building running ink to the printers, so I didn’t find out until many days later. Details were rather sketchy and only through a bit of digging was I able to get a bit more info.
Unfortunately a certain…paper wasn’t able to get details, so they were beaten to the press by the Canterlot Times. But instead they published a delightful fashion article about how “coffee” colored dresses were all the rage among those who used to wear “auburn”. I don’t get it either. But that’s the reason I don’t write fashion articles.
Anyway, I’m getting off topic.
I’ve only seen Princess Luna on a few rare occasions. And on those occasions she carried herself much differently than Princess Celestia. This image captures it very well.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got the urge to do a bit of research…take care everypony. - Bolt McRunfast”
((OOC: This is the sort of thing I’ll be doing here, with extra stuff depending on time available and what sort of art I can pretend to make.
This piece comes from here: http://valkyrie-girl.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=0#/d54vx8n. I also beseech you to check out their full page here: http://valkyrie-girl.deviantart.com/. She’s actually got a really nice sequence of images currently depicting the “heirs” of Celestia and Luna. I wanted to use them, but couldn’t quite come up with an IC way to talk about them.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, that’s the purpose of the watermark on the image. No cheating. :P
If you have either a particular piece of fan-art, a work of fiction, a particular artist or tumblr pony you’d like to maybe see highlighted, let me know! Until next time, take care!))
