I actually giggled out loud when I saw this. I absolutely Adore the moon craters, and the stars look accurate. This is going high on my slate :D

"Those are some... graphic cave drawings you left up here, Sister."

These pieces are so inspiring! Love this one a lot too. I'm not going to lie though, the scale of this drawing seems rather off. Not between the moon and the earth, but between Celestia and the moon. The fact that she is the size of entire craters, and that we can sort-of see the moon's curvature, makes her seem colossal to me.

But still, her expression is perfect. Good job, you!

I mean... we don’t know the actual size of ponies. They could be one hundred foot tall beasts for all we know.

Ah yes, the inevitable counterpoint to Luna in the Sun. Glad we got both prompts in though, so we can have stories from both angles.

Artistically, this one feels a TAD rushed, with back, middle, and foregrounds feeling like separate things pasted together. The look on Celestia's face is pretty great though, and (like nearly all art in these contests) better than I could make myself, so I'll leave it at that!

I'm always torn:

When it comes to judging the art in these "pic first" rounds. I mean, do I vote up entries that just appeal to me as visual images, or do I vote up the ones that I inspire story ideas in me?

Case in point: I love this picture, but since it didn't spark me with anything but the obvious stories last Friday, I placed it right in the middle of my ballot. But then after enjoying the story that it did spark, I found myself thinking I should move this pic higher. Is this me just "much adoing about nothing," or do other folks take that into consideration?

I don't think inspiration should factor into it? Put it this way, do you judge stories based on how many pics they inspire?

I always judge based on visual appeal, artistry, etc. It is up to you in the end though.

Makes sense:

Time to reshuffle my ballot!

Someone was a bit too fond of bananas, I gather. Lovely moonscape and befuddled expression. An upper tier piece, of which we have many this round. Thank you, Artist!
