Now we just need a picture of Abacus in his PJs and bed.
NO!I'm still vectoring mine! *cries*
I only have one possible response to this image, after asking for such a thing in the comments on Progress. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!
"Everypony chill out. I got this." -- Luna
Forgive my ignorance, but... what's with Luna and the abacus? Apparently I missed something.
aw D: i was in the middle of making mine :U
Apparently the abacus blocks light. The table disappears behind it.
I'm not stopping... I'll finish this... Just you wait and see.
Its in the story "Luna VS The Microwave"
@ActionScripter9109Luna vs the Microwave and the other fics in the series feature an abacus Luna treats like her child. You really ought to read them.
@ActionScripter9109It's from my fanfic Progress, a link to which is included in the post.Thank you very much Sethisto, Drawfriend 89, Technicolorpony and of course everyone else coloring this fanart for my fic. The updates won't come as fast in the coming weeks due to my new job, I'm afraid, but I'll try to get one last chapter out this week before I leave.
And Bigponymac would like to say that his body was not ready.Which means he thanks Technicolorpony and the rest of you for doing this. :U
B-But weren't her glasses red framed? ._.
@ActionScripter9109In the story "Progress; Luna vs.", Luna gets...very attached to the only abacus in Equestria. Up to the point where she starts obsessing over it.I remember requesting this fanart in the Google Docs chat!
luna versus the microwave ftw :D
I like how the table disappears behind the abacus.

"You'll never see him again! Just like you'll never see ME again!!"
this is so adorable. thanks for colouring it.
The abacus/table problem has been fixed, thanks to those that pointed it out (and Seth for uploading the fixed version so quickly) :)Thanks for all the positive comments on my rush ink/color job and thanks to the original sketch artist.As for the glasses supposedly needing to be red. Someone else can fix that if they want. I wasn't aware of it since I haven't actually read the associated story (though I will now!)
It's not "with an abacus" It should be "with Abacus"
Somepony should do a shaded version.
And -now- i understand what the deal with the abacus is. Thank you bronies.
FINISHED MINE! WHEEEhttp://maximillianveers.deviantart.com/art/Abacus-210356759
That's cheap inking.
awww, i just drew luna with an abacus too. I'll finish colouring it later xDhttp://pics.livejournal.com/zomgitsalaura/pic/000qret3
THAT IS SO ADORKABLE! 8D;I love the Progress series so much...Luna and her abacus FOOOREVER! <3~
Yay mine was added to the post! I love you gaiz!Don't worry, I'll be cleaning it up... alot. I was in such a rush to get it done I didn't take as much effort as I should have.
Oh, also, the link seems to have changed. It's now:http://maximillianveers.deviantart.com/#/d3h8obb
CRIMSONCRIMSONTHAT VECTORTHAT VECTOR<3
Man, beaten by nearly two hours! Teach me to refresh the main page before sending Sethisto stuff. Anyway, my rendition:http://altrform.deviantart.com/art/Luna-With-Abacus-Digitalized-210357922
Finally! Luna/Abacus is confirmed!
See, I said there'd be much cooler versions than mine coming later on! AlterForm's awesome! :)
OOOOOOHHHH ALTER. Yours is sooo pretty!!!! Shame it's so small...
Just doubled the dpi and re-uploaded at DA. The magic of vectors. :D
So, damn, that's three people already?? THIS PICTURE CAUSE SUCH A STORM MY GOD.
@ZarkanorfThat is the power of Abacus! ALL HAIL ABACUS! ALL HAIL ABACUS!
HMMMM i guess all my uses of gradient shadows have made my thumbnail look all grainy and stupid :U
I really need to learn to use Flash... Photoshop is terrible for this sort of thing.
@Crimson ValorIllustrator is supposed to be better for static vector graphics, or so I hear.I wouldn't know, though. I'm a real hoopy frood who uses Inkscape for svg's.(Happy Towel Day, even though it's almost over now)
@AlterFormIs there any way to use Illustrator with Photoshop's layout?Illustrator just seems like a jumbled mess to me, especially after 6 years of using only Photoshop.
I know someone already said this, but...Man, it's gonna feel SO AWKWARD when we find out an abacus is nowhere to be found near Luna.
@Crimson ValorNo idea. I have neither the need nor the funds to acquire a copy of CS5. (Or constituent programs thereof)Also, this should become a regular thing. Sethisto picks out a nice sketch piece and has us send in digitalized versions of it. Like a visual remix event!
@AlterFormOh Celestia please no. My heart rate was insane that whole time, me being so pointlessly desperate to finish in time, and I'm completely worn out.
@zomgitsalauraWow! That's really great! I can't wait to see it colored!And yeah, it's unlikely we'll see an abacus with Luna this season, but who knows? There's always Season 3 right?
God, the more I look at Alter's, the more I hate my lack of real vectoring skill.Screw it. I'm taking a vectoring class somewhere.
@Andrewi finished it already :Dhttp://zomgitsalaura.deviantart.com/#/d3h8sll
I like the second from the bottom most, though the abacus beads blend with the bookcase.
Erm. DA link is broken?
Heh. It seems this Luna + Abacus thing is a spreading trend. Here's the pic I did two days ago:http://foxofwar.deviantart.com/#/d3h75d4(I hope that confounded dA link WORKS this time around...)
She's kind a cute with her glasses on...though she can see clearly without it lolnice work :D
I love this. It's so right.
Thanks for the replies, bronies. Now I guess I'll have to go read Progress...Confound this fandom, it drives me to read fanfics. Did I say confound? I meant brohoof.
@EwyndallYes. My fault, I think. I made a slight change to the image and reuploaded it and DA changed the URL. It's now here:http://maximillianveers.deviantart.com/#/d3h8obb
I HAD TO GO TO THE CANTERLOT MUSEUM TO FIND THIS FOR YOU!Lol, luna vs the microwave.
