Luna's tantrum from MLP Micro Series no 10 by andypriceart Luna's tantrum from MLP Micro Series no 10 by andypriceart
From the IDW Comic series, Here's a page that was a lot of fun to do- Luna showing that notorious temper! I've always referred to her as "the bipolar pony" and this whole issue was a great example of her manic highs and lows.

For the majority of the issue, Luna has fun substituting for Celestia doing the day shift, but also get's very exasperated with the amount of tasks- and finally shows it! So I wanted her to be dark and dominate the page to show just how upset she can get... The bats forming out of her wings certainly get every pony's attention.

This issue also introduced Kibitz, Celestia's adviser and time-table keeper, as well as Tiberius (Tibbles!), Luna's pet Opposum.

I bought this Micro Comic last night, and so far it's my favorite of the MLP Micro's. Luna is so funny when she goes off the wall :)

I've got this issue and I've bought it because of this page ^^
Cool to see it here.
Do you mind one question? Were you asked to do comics for MLP or did you apply for it?

In wondering, was there a sort of fantasia poke in parts with this one page? And I loved reading this micro. It was a treat and a half for fun and quirky humor.

Non-traditional panel layouts and borders are always very eye-catching for me. And Luna's mane/tail are exquisite! There's always been a huge nod in your work to "psychedelic" artwork of the 60's-70's and it shows in that detailing. As usual, fantastic job.

Heh, my new job is the night shift at a grocery store, and I really do feel for Luna taking on a day shift right after the night.  Gotta love that little Tibbles on the floor!  ^_^  My grandmother had a possum in her house once. It actually got brought in, in a baby carriage 6_9 long story that I'll try and shorten.  So my dad thought she had rats, after the garbage got knocked over the first night, and he put out traps and poison, which weren't even touched, but the garbage was again. Then my grandma decided; no, she didn't want the baby carriage in the house anymore.  My dad goes to grab it and asks "Who left their giant white glove in here?"  Apparently my grandma yelled so loud I jumped high enough to hit my head in a door frame.   I really like the flow of the mane and how the bats are coming out of her wings too to fill up the upper portion with all black, very cool. Thanks so much for the work, looking forward to seeing you at Toronto Comicon next month.

Truly a scene to behold. I'll say that out of all of the issues from the Micro series issue 10 was the best and it truly ended the micro series with a bang.
I really think it nailed Luna's personality perfectly. That she can be a innocent and naive child(well in a way she has the mind of a child....well at least that's how I see it) and an unpredictable creature of fear. I was fearing that the issue would just play her being wacky for the sense of being wacky but I was pleasantly surprised how her bipolar personality complemented the story.

I also think it was a nice touch that Luna was still traumatized by the events of her banishment. And I have to say I really love her new pet Tiberius. H e truly surprised me. He really fits with her perfectly. And I don't care what others think I found the cameo of Flash Sentry to be welcoming. I liked him in the Equestria Girls movie and I like him here.

I'm really happy to see Luna being happy in this issue. After the emotional abuse she had to endure in the Nightmare Rarity arc it's time to see her happier and more friendly. I really do hope that the actual show references at least some events of the comic books. I think it would bring a better sense of continuity but that's just me. ^^;

They sort of have already - Twilight bringing out Cadance's nerdy side in "Three's a Crowd" was done first in the comics, more specifically in the "high-school flashback" issues when the two of them first met and Cadance was already falling for Shining Armor.

My husband works PM shift and anytime he gets moved onto temporary AM shifts by his employer (classes, physicals, juryduty etc)it results in his going through a transitional phase that is not unlike what us depicted here. Poor Luna!! Not a daytime pony, never will be XD

Right. The main book rarely if ever held a candle to the Micro Series in my eyes (Big Mac was the only exception) and now Twilight is Princess (tm) Twilight, now with extra Wings! And I never liked her with wings and the stories just haven't been doing anything for me so I quit reading it. Sorry if that sounds callous. :/

Presumably that bipolar personality was part of the reason Luna ended up corrupted into Nightmare Moon in the first place. Even if you pretend there wasn't an outside influence working on her, it would've been easy enough for the volatile brew of emotions within to do the job on their own.

Love this in the monochrome! Actually got the comic out to look at the color work and realized I had your "Coffee" cover (which is the best cover for this issue! Absolutely hilarious!) Keep up the great humor and fine art!

The Luna comic was the best of the whole micro-series, not an easy title to claim as there were so many great ones.
