Luna V3 by Rex42 Luna V3 by Rex42
So yeah this one has a small story behind it. (I would advice you read this while listening to this [link] cause this was what I was listening while drawing for 7 hours straight none stop!)

Anyway, so I wake up yesterday morning thinking that I will do some studies then go bike around a bit (training is always good), and before that I log in to my social internet sites (da and facebook while still in bed, sometimes it is good to have a laptop :P) to check if the world is still spinning around the sun and make sure that doomsday is still fare away (lol).

And so I log in DA and ofc my watchbox has 1200 arts peaces (which is normal considering I am member of 25 groups) and I start going through them. Then I suddenly stop! Why? You may ask, well because of this peace [link] by this :iconvalkyrie-girl: AMAZING artist (whom i am watching now hihi)

And so when I saw this peace something sparked in my head (e.g twi in the ep 2 of season 1), What happened next is kinda wonderful and scary in a sense. What I did, I turned on GIMP and stated drawing! I kept drawing and drawing and drawing (I did not even take any breaks to eat or drink or to rest, I was just drawing without stopping) and when I was done with these three peace (which are all base on the original, but at the same time a bit different) I looked at the clock and my jaw dropped. I have been drawing for like 7 HOURS straight! I could feel it too you know, cause my fingers staring hurting like hell and I became very hungry too.

But yeah here I am now posting them up (after getting permission from the original artist ofc).

Things to note, I made three version cause I like them all.

V1 Luna[link]: Is my attempt to finish the original peace

V2 Luna[link]: Is a combo of "mine" V1 and the original peace (cause I like the semi-finished look to it)

V3 Luna: is V1 but different background and lighting (was playing around with light effects and liked the outcome)

So yeah, that's it. Hope you boys and girls like them :)

Thank you, I am happy you like it! :D But I can't take all the credit for it. The original artist had a very nice base. I just tried to finish it :)

I am not sure about the original... what I had in mind was the tilt of head, the slightly closed eyes, and the somewhat dreamy expression upon the face... you know, the little things that can make a life's difference :)
