i love looking at this, its one of those artworks that make you focus on whats important; the actual pony. i don't actually think i have ever seen a good animation of Luna. this is one of those good ones, one that has almost the exact same looks and personality actions. but, for the technique, i don't get the water lines, i cant see any other form of water movement in the picture. the impact that the picture has on you is that you really think that Princess Luna is a serious and high standard pony and you have definitely reflected this in the animation. i would love to see more of these from you.
What do you think?

Beautiful work. Are you considering more animation work?
Also, is it possible to download song?

Nice work.

Aside from items previously mentioned, the only thing I found that could use improvement are the sparkle fields in the mane and tail.

The mane and tail sparkles are always clipped within the dark blue field. The current animation has them in the translucent area and even entirely outside the mane and tail. In addition, I think the sparkles are turning black at some point in their rotation. Something tells me they should be translucent or a 50% alpha white at that stage.

I see you also added some sparkle to her shoes. This is nice, as I've seen this and even vectored it before. For added effect, you can even add the occasional sparkle to her chest plate as well, but not a lot. It's not as shiny as the shoes.

Thanks for the critique! sadly, this puppet was not made by me! :D i only animated it..
The water kinda reminds me of Pokemon...
Very good fluid motion on the hair. On her tail, where the motion starts, I think the motion should start a little closer to the base (the top part of the tail only). Just because it look very stiff when the motion begins. If that makes any sense lol
