Son of the Moon by aNIGHTLYpony Son of the Moon by aNIGHTLYpony
probably the best artwork i have made so far, i want to thank :iconmegatruh: for the great night sky tutorial!

"and on that dark night,under the full moon,a pony was born with a coat as nightfall and a mane as white as moonlight.
the embodiment of Nightfall"

this artpiece describes my OC Nightly's bond with the moon, because of his mothers wish upon the moon spirit she was able to have a child after all, under a condition...... "it shall be yours as it shall be mine".

it turned out he is a Nocturnal pony that only ages at night, his magic doesn't work during a lunar eclipse and is and is allergic to sunlight (he gets the flu and it makes him sneeze XD). at very young age he was very attracted to music, that's why he was named "Nightly", a mix between "Night" and "Medley".

his background story is based on the old folk legend "Hijo de la Luna" (son of the moon)

Absolutely incredible, you sir are very talented. I can't but look at this OC and see the similarity he has with my Fan fiction character I'm developing. except your OC is a unicorn, where mine is an earth pony...

Anyway, great job! definetly worthy of a fave and watch!

You asked for feedback so here I am.

Overall, it looks nice. It's got a nice polish to it, though it might border too blurry. I do notice that the hair does not have the defined shading as the rest of the image, making it look flat. It also took me a few views to notice that he is supposed to have a mouth. Defining it a bit better might help, though it may be the water mark.

thank you,

yes indeed the hair looks flat now that you say so.
water mark removing is a must. thanks for sharing your thoughts ^.^
