I have one last tutorial on a character from the My Little Pony series. She is all purple, and has a horn because she too is a unicorn. I will show you "how to draw Luna", step by step. Like her older sister Celestia, she too is a princess. Other Ponies refer to her as Princess Luna, but it wasn't all fun, love, and games for Luna in the past. I say this because Luna used to be known as Nightmare Moon before she turned back into her normal self. She was able to become Princess Luna again with the help of the Elements of Harmony. It’s hard to believe that Luna was once a jealous, vengeful, condescending pony that didn’t care for anything or anyone. When she was Nightmare Moon, her entire coat was black, and she wore a mask over her face. Now she is a dreamy purple with a beautiful flowing mane and tail. Her cutie mark is a crescent moon lying on a dark colored purple background. She is going to be rather simple to tackle, and I think that most of you will find that learning "how to draw Luna" is going to be fun. I shall return in a bit guys so keep those pencils in your hand.

STEP 10.

Before you start drawing in the markings on Luna's body, you will have to clean up the drawing. Do this by erasing the guides and mistakes you may have made along the tutorial journey. Make the markings on the hooves, and then draw in her cutie mark on her back thigh or hip. Lastly, make the crescent she is wearing around her neck.
