Featherless Faith by Jowybean Featherless Faith by Jowybean
Since the recent reveal that the princess of the nights guards are bat ponies B-) I have been fascinated with the idea of Luna having bat wings herself :P.

I am tempted to go against the norm and draw her with these types of wings from now on ;P makes a nice physically change to her design.:)

This started out as a simple tablet sketch and like most sketches I do I grew attached to it then placed in an interior background and kept going from there. :eager:

Because I do so many pony pieces that end up complimenting the characters colour scheme :yawn:.I experimented with clashing colours in this sketch making Lunas body stand out and give the piece an eerie feel i also drew it from a sight angle. This scene is supposed to be inside Canterlot castle yet the scheme I choose makes the environment feel almost nightmarish :fear: its impressive what colours can do to your work. :wow:

Check out my FIM title card project jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…

Another title card is on its way folks I am getting back on track with the project. :)

Until next deviation and tomorrow LATERS :peace:

Drawn in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom tablet 5

Epic FTW:woohoo: or Do Not want :rage: you choose :mwahaha:

This looks like it's out of a comic book. Though i have to say that at first I thought it was Celestia, not Luna.

Interesting concept, the idea of having Luna with bat wings like her guards! As a big fan of going against the norm, I support this decision. :headbang:

Neat work on the expression and pose, I love how gloriously insane this looks and how I can picture some evil musical number something-or-other in this.

When i look at this it reminds me of the Battle Against Corvus when all his feathers fell off and showed his evil wings in Dragon Quest IX.

Nightmare Moon came about from everypony's collective racism against bat ponies, Luna included. One day Luna threw off the facade Celestia made her put upon her wings.

Thnk back to Luna Eclipsed, her guards are not typical pegasi. Also in the comic they reappear

What a dynamic scene! Luna freeing herself of the featuery weights as a suprised sister watched from the background.

"recent reveal"
Haven't we known this since like, the beginning of season 2?

I think by "recent" he meant the twitter posts by Faust / Larson

When the episode first aired, most people assumes it was an enchantment of sorts, like Luna's NMM disguise spell.

Now we need is the cue to the Night on bald mountain theme with the sounds of Luna preparing an evil laugh. This is fucking awesome.
