Lunas lab by muffinexplosion Lunas lab by muffinexplosion
She's Equestrias leading coffee scientist!
Her lab is exclusively equipped for coffee research!
Should be canon!

Wanna help her bring her research to the next level?
Oh, of course you want that! Cause you're amazing as always! :la:
And it's totally easy too! You can help her by pledging here: .:Bullet:. Patreon by FreakyEd www.patreon.com/muffinexplosio… *winkwink*

This. Took. Forever. Even Octavias celloblade didn't take this long! :ohnoes:
But that's cool. I'm a little bit exhausted but happy nonetheless!
Now I can finally start the next thing! YES! *motivation*

But first a little backstory: The amazingly talented storyteller Georg (www.fimfiction.net/user/Georg) linked me this random webcomic panel that you can see here:
www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic…
Shortly after that I started working on this one. :dummy:
I did some of it on livestream. Mostly Inking. So if you're interested in watching me draw some lines, you can watch that here: www.livestream.com/muffinexplo…
Hope you like it!

Plot twist: The coffee is decaffeinated and she actually suffers from Fatal_familial_insomnia, with the only reason she's still alive is because she's immortal.

I was at the pumpkin patch a week ago and saw a coffee stand called "Bella Luna Coffee" and this was the first thing I thought of ^__^

It's not real coffee. It's liquid! It's only real coffee if you have eat it with a spoon.
I bet with that sloppy watery sludge her heart didn't even come near to the normal 50 beats per second.
I'm awake for a week and even my dinosaurs didn't see any problem with that.
Oh it think my sealing burped. I have to go to the sink and paint the call soup.

I saw it but I never knew of Genius Girl till I checked the comments. Maybe Genius Girl's comic page was inspired by it, but I thought of the ooooold music cartoon, Music Machine. www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAVogy… (Forgive if the religious theme isn't others cup of tea. XD )

The coffee must be darker than Luna's night, which is considerably bright when you factor in all the ambient light.

Your effort certainly shows! Fantastic work on the beautiful machine with so much great detail. All the cups laying around add a nice bit of exposition and mood too, and more so by that humongous pot (as if the whole machine with that huge bean hopper isn't enough ;)). The action panels up top make me almost hear the monster maker in action. Then it's especially fun when we see Princess Luna so strung out – but still lovely as ever. Her colors stand out against the machine's nicely without any clash.

 

The little mouse is really cute too. Good thing she has to-go cups and that thermos so that she may actually be able to leave the machine long enough to raise and lower her moon.

Particularly considering Luna's mental state isn't the soundest to begin with. I would think that the odds of her going "Nightmare Moon" again increase the longer she's sleep-deprived.
