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.

The way this is shaded makes it look like a very detailed model set. I'd like to know what kind of references, if any, you used for the clouds, towers, and rocks. Just incredible work.
This is also the first time that realistic horse anatomy has not bothered me in the slightest. I've always thought horses were ugly. :|

Glad you like it! Believe it or not, the towers are based on some christmas ornaments. I looked at an anatomy book, of course, for the bodies, but the rest is a total fabrication.

The detail of Celestia's mane and tail... makes me wish that's how they were depicted in the show.

For EQD anyone could submit your piece, but most of the time noone is going to bother wasting their time submitting someone else's pic so if you want it on there I think your best bet is to submit it yourself.

And might I say this is just amazing, those manes, those reflections, those EVERYTHINGS!

I think its this way: anyone can submit it, but unless its you, and you do not want the views that come flowing from EQD you can request they remove it.
