Nightmare Moon Appears! by ultraspacemobile Nightmare Moon Appears! by ultraspacemobile
I produced this one micron per weekend over some months. I settled on this iteration--I might save and post the other versions in the sketchbook later. How do pony pictures normally end up on EQD? Is it expected that I would submit my own stuff, or is it like a game where I post it, then the community submits it for me? Anyway, comments appreciated.

Btw, "Spike at your Service" is definitely in the 10 best episodes so far.

I love the swirls in Nightmare Moon's mane and her helmet is really cool.

Thanks for the compliment. It took a long time to make, not so much for the difficulty of the elements, but because it went through a number of major changes. I posted a summary of the process in my scrapbook if you are interested. [link]

I love the mane and muscle of royal pony sisters.
You style is special but I think this is a very good pony artwork.

This is an amazing piece. Texture, color, detail. That sky is beautiful. I love both Nightmare and Celestia's hair and the anatomy, however, I'm unsure of the mood the characters are portraying. The poses are also kind of confusing and forgive me please but when I look at Nightmare, I can't help but think of her screaming "HURR DURR!" She's really kinda like "Hey, sup?" I feel that Nightmare's pose should be less dainty, more "rawr!" intimidating. And Celestia's face. Not sure if surprised, scared,... happy, expectant???

But yeah, I'm sorry, I know I'm not very good at this critique thing, but overall, I think this is a stunning piece.
