Wet Mane Luna by spier17 Wet Mane Luna by spier17
Once again huge thanks to KP :iconkp-shadowsquirrel: for his wonderful original drawing! I wanted to do this one ever since I saw it, that mane got me :D 

Originally had a background for this, but realized I am absolutely at making splashes in water, so I sadly had to scrap it after spending way too much time trying to get it to look okay :(
This was my first time trying for a "wet" effect so constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!


Edit: Tried out :iconzomgmad:'s idea and added some grad/blur to water :)

DA background hides water droplets D: here's a quick gradient so you can see them:

This is fantastic. The context is a bit weird but the execution is brilliant. Your art style is fantastic, and I've never seen someone try something like this. Very original indeed... I also like the way you draw folded wings :P. Luna looking up at her wet mane was a very nice detail as well. The way the water droplets are going down her body is interesting as well, and of course the pieces of wet mane floating in the air makes for a very interesting concept. The only thing I don't like is the tail, I wish it was more dramatic. But ignoring that, this is pretty great. 18.5/20

Oh my god, this is beautiful. Really, well done.
Vision: Clear and simple goal, wonderfully accomplished. 5/5
Originality: I've never seen anything like this before, it's incredibly creative. 4.5/5
Technique: The odd shape of her fractured mane is put together incredibly well. The shading is subtle but works perfectly for the context. I love how you've got her on her tiptoes, so to speak, and looking into the sky, as if admiring the beauty of the night she's created. 5/5
Impact: The moment I saw this, I thought "this is amazing". Although it's not exactly clear at first glance what the name comes from, but that's only a minor detail. 4/5

Again, great job.

One of most beautiful vectors I've ever seen. Thank you for creating this. Sadly, doesn't open well in Inkscape.

I love the idea of lunar wet mane :D

Oops, that's probably my fault,  I had troubles with the export so I grouped all the separate parts into one, and ungrouping makes a really big mess, not to mention power strokes in Ponyscape show up as many nodes in Inkscape,  I apologize for it being difficult to work with.  And thank you too!

Oops which piece?  The large section has a transparent fill over the area, and the overlap only slightly changes the colour of the blue underneath, and thanks :)
