Lunacorn Stained Glass Design by swandog Lunacorn Stained Glass Design by swandog
My secondary "Lunacorn" char, which you can also see here, here and here. I'll post a proper char ref sheet of her later, but for now, this can serve as a temp one, and please note that she only has her wings when she's in anthro form, and she only takes on anthro form during the full moon. She's named "Luna" not just because she's part luna moth, but also because she has a crescent, moon-shaped horn, and is connected with the moon's phases as well as nighttime in general.

The rest of the time, she just appears as a wingless, non-anthro, deer-based unicorn, with some equine aspects (mane, hoof feathering, long tail tuft, etc.). Her wings are a cross between two species of luna moths: actias luna (American moon moth) and actias selene (Indian moon moth). The upper pair of wings borrow their shape from actias selene, and the lower pair from actias luna. The shape of the eyespots are based on those of actias luna, but they are pink like those of actias selene and resemble actual eyes (in this case, albino eyes, because I have a passion for albino and leucistic animals). The undersides of the wings have the same markings, but are overall paler in hue. This particular image happens to be a heavily-stylized concept design for a stained glass "suncatcher" that I hope to have made.

Edit: I decided after all to go ahead and make her eyes and nosepatch brown, to add her pink eye/muzzle stripes and tail coloration, and also her golden eartips and forehead marking...Now she looks a bit more likes she's supposed to. :) And forgot to mention earlier that the flowers are stencil patterns from here: www.stencil-library.com/ (Just needed something to fill in a bit of all that white space!) Lastly, ~CommodoreMarie may be making this for me as an art trade; she does awesome work! :)

PLEASE NOTE: My Lunacorn char has no connection with either the "Lunacorn" toy from the "Penguins of Madagascar" or "Princess Luna" from "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic", and my Lunacorn predates both of them by several years anyway. :)

<3 <3 <3 I Love your Lunacorn !!!! <3 <3 <3 I actually encountered  a Luna moth in Maryland. I heard it first, then turned to see the most magical creature fluttering a breath away from me. *Instant Tears of Pure Joy* I still get them to this day when I think about it <3
