east of the sun, west of the moon by egophiliac east of the sun, west of the moon by egophiliac

If Celestia controlled the moon, and Luna controlled the sun. I tried to make it more interesting than just a straight palette- and cutie mark-swap, dunno how well I succeeded with that. Oh well!

A while ago I realized my headcanon personalities for Celestia and Luna are, like, almost exactly the opposite of what everyone else seems to think. :iconlunashrugplz: So somehow that led to this, idk. I think Moonlestia would be called Aurora, but I can't think of a name for Sunluna! Somebody more creative can come up with one.

I like how the shape of the sunrays on Solara's cutie mark echo the nebulous shapes around her moon cutie mark in canon.

I would probably be more likely to go with Diana for Moonlestia, and Solara for Sunluna.

Interesting concept. Personally, I think the name Aurora would suit a sun type better since I think it has something to do with the dawn. Maybe "Corona" would suit sun!Luna?

In German, the smaller, reddish part of a Corona can also be called Aureole. I think that sounds nice as a name, and with Aurora and Aureole, they'd both start with "Au" <- Sucker for alliterations :D

This is so gorgeous. Would you mind terribly making desktop sized version(s) of this?

I hesitate to try it myself because 1) it's yours and 2) I'm terrified of even attempting to resize this.

You should name her Corona. :)
It litterally translates as "crown" but it also refers to this ==> [link]

It also implies her royal standing and is a feminine name to boot. :)

Once again awesome job Egophiliac! :D

Of wait, I know what you should name Sunluna!

Phoebe, Phoebe's the sister of the sun god, Helios (Phoebus, henceforth the name, Phoebe), it means moon.

it's so pretty :heart: how the colors flow, the composition, amazing.
And I like how sunluna is happy and overflowing with joy.

but honestly, aurora? for the red sky in the morning? then we could name sunluna just might as well amaterasu (though I only associate the game okami with that.)
I suggest Selene for moon-tia and Eos for sunluna, if you want to stay with the greek and origin-wise.
(Moot and Sunna? speak the u like in moon and soon. goes a bit to the origin in old old germanic.)
