Princess Lumena / Twilight Sparkle
My guess for Twilight haveing 2 names: like the Pharaohs of Egypt, on assuming the throne, she chose a Name of Power to seperate her public persona as Princess( a pony expected to personify the ideals of regal grace, all knowing and above all: POWER. One who would defend the country at all costs, and who would lead HER armies to never ending victories), from her private persona. Her birth name known only to select, and highly trusted, individuals. Never removing her regalia except to rest at night( her power at its height during the time between sunset and moonrise, and moonset and sunrise.)
Or: when Twilight ascended, her soul was split into two seperate personalities. Completley different personalities, memories, everything. Princess Lumena, the strong confident princess, personifing royal grace, strength, all knowing and beautifull. And Twilight Sparkle, Ponyville librarian and Element of Magic. They both know they share ONE body, but are two different entites sharing it. When Twilight is in charge, Princess Lumena is always there when Twilight needs help, and something more than a friend. When Princess Lumena is in charge, Twilight is there to help her when any questions arise she cant answer, and to be a real friend when Lumena needs one. As they get older, and more into their immortality, Princess Lumena would take charge more and more of their body. When the last of her friends passed away, Twilight would let her conscience merge with Lumena's, giving her complete controll of THEIR body, becoming nothing more than memories for her.
Cheeks are kinda puffy, but all in all, it looks great
Query! Why does everyone in these pictures have an alternative name?
Taking a wild guess here, but its probably canon in the prevails verse that newly crowned royalty chose a 'Name of Power', or 'Regnal Name' to recognise their second person as a princess (their public person) to differentiate them from their private person. Think of it like Catholic Popes (or indeed, Christian Bishops in general) who take on a new name when they reach the office. The Russians Tzars and the English royals do the same.
Is she having chubby cheeks or she ate a Ponyville starfruit?
I am not sure, but it looks to me as if the left eye was added later on. Take it away and you have a normal looking side view of her head.
What's up with her snout?
I like the idea of her taking a different name/tittle, because in my headcanon Celestia and Luna did too
Well you could think that sense Candace took a different name.
this is pretty good! except.... is she eating an apple? cuz it looks like she has a mouthful
Странновата щека левая, а так это шикарно :3
This is really beautiful! I really love absolutely everything except her right cheek. I especially like the hairstyle overall
Awesome job on this. ^^
I love how you did her hair to look like it's going into wavy goddess mode.
Dem chubby cheeks....I wanna squeeze 'em
this looks awesome!
Love the artwork and the style you gave her very gorgeous. I find the nickname suiting to her.
chubbeh cheeks! :3
i always end up make hilarious faces while im reading. good to see Twilight doesnt have that problem
Cute and pretty
i think its really cute!! i love her mane and tail too ahh
also her cheek looks fine to me???? idk why everyone is complaining about it.
Gorgeous concept! I like the name you gave her, too.
I love how you gave her a slightly different mane/tail style! Plus, I don't see why everyone's complaining about her looking like she's got chubby cheeks, I actually think it's really adorable. ;u;
Just watch out for Pinkie Pie running directly torward you while smiling.
Looks good, as always!
her cheek... whats up with that? otherwise nice art!
I feel her cheek may be a tad too pronounced.
You've dubbed her Lumena? Is that like a royal title in this case? Also, does it have a meaning?
I think it could be derived from "illumination" or something.
Her cheek is looking a little chubby.
I love it. TvT And yeah, good "princess name."
Cool name change!!!
I don't like this new art style you're going with. I like the more smooth art style you had before but this is to chubby and feels kinda ridiculous. You can keep on the children, that looks cute but on fully grown ponies (Especially alicorns) it's just stupid. I can't take it seriously
No offence. Just bring out my personal opinion.
Lumena, thats the name of Musashi's sword from Brave Fencer Musashi. Also awsome work as all ways.
