You deserves some dreams too, and I will keep them safe.
So sleep, Luna, keeper of everyone' nights, and do have your dreams.
And sunset may wait.


Together with previous piece, that one is a small study on difference of Royal sisters' personalities, as I see them. Simple and typical situation - the sister oversleeping her work, i.e. raising the Sun or Moon. Luna' and Celestia' behaviour are clearly different here.

The picture I drew some time ago depicted the Luna' reaction on Celestia oversleeping the morning. Luna will not hesitate to raise the Sun instead, and will bring a good cup of coffee to make her sister' wake more pleasant (Luna dislikes the coffee, she is a tea person, but Celestia loves it too much).

Today' picture, on the other hand, is about Luna oversleeping the evening (has been reading too much before sleep, most likely). Celestia does not want to wake her sister up, and she knows Luna will be upset if she raises the Moon instead. Luna is just too serious about her duties sometimes. So the sun goddess is just silently sitting here, looking after her sister' sleep and enjoying her mere presence, after all these years. Quiet moment of twilight and peaceful dreams, with the Sun ready to set but stood still in a timeless, eternal evening. Sunset may wait.
Sunset will wait.

This is a beautiful piece which I have taken some time to truly appreciate.
Your work is subtle and careful. Luna and Celstia's face, and Luna's hair, in particular, I like.

I set is as my screensaver recently. When I am tired I watch it for a moment.
It feels caring and safe; and makes me feel a little better.

Luna's tail looks soft :3
The kind, caring, respectful older sister Celestia. The two pictures you made makes me want to be the Celestia to my little sisters. Even the one who is my polar opposite.

Well. Glad these images touch you. Never been a good brother myself, though. Good to know it still works.

Really nice I think you captured how Lunas bedroom would look really well and the expression on Celestia's face matches the scene really well.

It is extremely rare that I like a piece of artwork that has a headcanon accompanying it.

This is the only known exception to date...fantastic work!
