A long, loooong awaited pony for a fantastic critic and an all around cool guy
, I wanted this pony to be one of my best. Whether it is or not I won't deign to say, but I think I can safely say it isn't among my worst.
Among other things I took my sweet time on this one when it came to gluing on the mane, which I did as a separate piece this time around. I'm thinking that it looks better this way than with the mane as a solid part of the head and neck. Usually I'm a huge fan of 60 second epoxy, but this time around it was real wood glue and 24 hour waiting times before work resumed. (Not that it mattered, I fumbled her during later detailing and shattered half of the mane on the floor, but the repair seems to have worked out all right.
I've done better faces, but Luna is incredibly annoying when it comes to face and body shape (I think she might be just a smidge too long. But for once I made it through a tiara without being infuriated beyond all reckoning. And I did much prefer making the season 1 Luna to the current one. She's just so much more pony when it comes to the mane and tail. And I painted the mane, hmm, how about that. I'm still generally against paint, but the ebony is so dark and flat that it tends to blend together, and I wanted a little contrast.
As usual, there is a work in progress gallery

Princess Luna and My Little Pony belong to Hasbro.Curious about the name? Theia was the planetary body that impacted Earth causing the formation of the moon in the giant impact hypothesis.
