Luna in Ebony: Dark of Night by xofox Luna in Ebony: Dark of Night by xofox
This ebony Luna for :iconsaberthedoom: is a bit of a new kind of pony for me in a couple of ways. First, as you can see, her mane and tail are wooden instead of thread, a necessity for the season two hairstyles. Second, this is technically still an unfinished piece, since the final result is going to be painted, eyes and all. Anyone who has been around this page should know that I don't post WIP pics here, but I'm making an exception here because, if it were my own pony, I would stop here. Unpainted is more my style; although I've sprinkled her fairly liberally with silver leaf. Still, the painted version should be up in a day or two.
As for the pony itself, this is definitely a presentation piece, and I seem to be straying further and further from the "toy" ponies that I was making a year ago, but c'est la vie. Her left side is definitely her strong side, while the hair covering her face on her right side looks pretty iffy. But I like her high-topped Nightmare Moon boots and she has an actual removable tiara this time around. The wings aren't too terrible either, and the face is definitely more Luna-esque (Lunar sounded wrong) than previous attempts. Like a black dress, though, dust and scuffs definitely show up on her, and understand that all those angular curves and knife marks are what remains after a darn good sand and polish. Ebony. Whatcha gonna do?
If you want to see more pictures of Luna, and the woodworking process, please check out her offsite WIP gallery which will continue to update during the rest of the work on her, and the Dark of Night expanded gallery at My Little Woodcraft.

Nice job, one of the best i`ve seen of your pony work. I second the preference for wood! :thumbsup:

I much prefer the wood myself, shame you couldn't keep her this way, she looks lovely!

Yes, painting is definitely not my jive in any case, and I haven't had any practice at it. :|
c'est la vie.
