The Princess of your Clockwork Dreams by NastyLady The Princess of your Clockwork Dreams by NastyLady
I couldn't sleep and my internet desided to slow down so I couldn't watch any movie... so I dug out an old sketch and finished it. It came out... a bit larger than I expected.
And here's the wallpaper version, by the way -

Some time ago I realized that I never actually stempunked Luna properly. I mean, yeeeah, there was this steampunk-armored Nightmare Moon but that doesn't count. And I also wanted to draw a looong multi-layered dress with transparent fabrics. 
And I also love drawing steampunk stuff without using this brass-and-copper color palette. I mean, it does look cool but gets old and kinda boring after a while. And victorian dresses used to be very vibrantly colored, so... yeah. Besides, I just don't see Luna wearing browns. She's just too majestic and... noble for that. I just like to imagine that she loves dressing up in sparkling, heavy decorated yet tastefuld outfits and even Celestia is more modest in this aspect. But that's just my headcanon.

And that mane. Unf, I just love that mane.

Oh, and her "profession" is of course "The Princess".

Loving the flowy mane and tail and dress.  Really loving all of this actually.  I just try to be a little more specific than "this is awesome," which it definitely is.
