The handwritten letter forms in Captain Luna’s hand-(hoof?)-writing are based on the Celtic hand in calligraphy, which draws from ancient texts like the Book of Kells.
I melded my own handwriting into the script in an effort to create something that felt unique and arcane, without seeming overly formal (after all, she is using it to jot down notes to the Navigator and letters to her sister). Her handwriting is a work in progress still…I’ll keep fiddling with it until it feels right!
Met Tabitha St German today
Also got some RD and TS prints cause raisons
Jky and a couple other people got the Captain Luna print signed by Tabitha…and she even wrote a little thing on the back of it for Jky (second photo) BEHhh
Doodle a lovely Luna in a fancy hat :)
This is a little after the fact, but better late than never. Fiddling around with their various art styles for this picture was fun.
At EQLA2013, there was a “How to Make A Pony Tumblr” panel featuring the mods behind “Ask Filly Vinyl Scratch”, “Ask Blind Dash”, and “Captain Luna”. It was nice getting to hear about how other Tumblr-folk got going and their process on running their very different blogs.
So, thanks y’all for the great panel! It was lots of fun and I hope you continue all the good work!
Wow this is great! From your other posts, it sounds like you had a good time at the con and thanks for putting this little pice together! I’m glad our silly little panel was enjoyabe x_x You did good capturing some of each artist’s style bits too

Thanks, anon—it was inspired by the wallpaper in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion! You can find a wallpaper version (if you want it) in my deviantart gallery.
YAY HI NAOMI <3 Welcome to the barrel of tiny colored horses
I have a ramble blog for these sorts of things so I don’t clog up this blog too much…but to answer your question yes we’re going out ;3
There were these dudes who commandeered a table right at the end of the con and were taking doodles from everyone, so Cookie made this little doodle to tape to the table
