The Moon Rises by Kiriska The Moon Rises by Kiriska
This piece was a pain in the ass and nothing went the way I planned. But I like how it turned out! Even if it meant accidentally spraying paint all over everything at 3am.



India ink, marker, white ink, gel pen on 11x17 Bristol; original is SOLD.
My Little Pony belongs to Hasbro.

^^' Phew, I spent a good 2 minutes trawling the picture for the 3rd hidden signature. :P But in all fairness they chose the right picture to steal. If gone unchecked it would've racked up heaps of faves. ^^

Oh, the third place was in the thief's deviation title, which seemed to have been derived automatically from the file name. ^^ And thank you!

In a way I'm glad that this happened, because now I can favourite the artwork that was done by the actual artist and even watch said artist who actually drew the awesome stuff.

Well, at least you now know that you're well known as a brilliant artist. Art thieves only steal from the incredibly talented. :meow:

I love this very much. As a unicorn/pegasus fan as a little girl, I swear I would have not known the difference if it was MLP franchise or not because it is very original. A job well done on this piece and your hard work.

I love how you drew Luna (I think) in a realistic equine style. The colors are really fantastic, and the technique used is really superb. Well done, and congrats on a well deserved DD!

How seducing. its by far the most detailed art piece. there is a lot of expressionism in the masterpiece of yours. To infinity and beyond. For freedom.
