The Rise of the Sun (Night Gives way to Day) by usernameirrelevant The Rise of the Sun (Night Gives way to Day) by usernameirrelevant
"I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day." -Vincent Van Gogh

Update: OHMYGOSH this has gotten a lot of views... Found out it landed on the Princess Luna FB site. Thanks for all the support everyone! :D :D

Luna watching Celestia rising the sun. She smiles, sharing the sky with her older sister.
I wanted to go for something a little complex. I thought a planet and stars would be appropriate, asked a fellow deviant what character would best suit the image, he said Luna or Celestia for sure. I really do enjoy experimenting with lighting, and I thought it would be a cute to show an image of them during the trading of the sky from one sister to the next, Celestia rising the sun, Luna watching as night gives way to day.

Planet is loosely based off of map of Equestria. [link]
I was lazy this time so I used a Princess Luna vector. The full vector can be found here [link] :iconabydos91:
Made in Paint.Net
Used 20 layers not including Equestria and surrounding land masses. 30-35 including planet


This took much longer than I wanted it to. (I started it early Jan.)
But it's done. And it turned out quite well, better than expected actually.

Gorgeous piece. It's neat how luna is practically shrouded in black. Although you'll have to forgive my first thought which was Luna, directed by JJ Abrams
