MLP - Luna and The Nightmare by redblacktac MLP - Luna and The Nightmare by redblacktac
Luna and her evil alter ego Nightmare Moon

I feel kinda bad for luna y'know

being banished to the moon for 1000 years in isolation and eating nothing but moon rocks can really do a number on ones mental health, to the point where she gave up fighting who she is and allow herself to get taken by her darker half....

oh well

Damn you Lauren Faust and your incredible genius child, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

EDIT-I seriously didnt mean to make them so..masculine y'kno
so THEY BOTH are girls

Problem is, that Luna WAS Nightmare Moon when Celestia fought her. (feeling rejected over everal centuries can do that to you. And I've got a theory that Discord, before being defeated messed with her mind... so it was incredibly easy for her darker side to take control.)

Nonetheless, awesome art.

Very nice picture, well drawn.

Princess Luna is, to me, one of the most interesting characters on the show. There is simply so much potential for stories regarding this character that she's pretty much a gift to the series.

A character who rose up to try and overthrow her sister and claim rulership of the world, only to be put down and banished for 1000 years. Freed from captivity and eventually returned to the side of light. There are so many things you can do with that.

Explore what it was like for her to be imporsoned for a millenium. See her fall from grace. Find out what the relationship between the two sisters is like when the other characters aren't there. And much more.

There's also the issue of her evil alter-ego, Nightmare Moon. Was it simply a conscious choice to become evil? Was it some other evil force taking her over? If so she either reefls regret for her actions over an active choice she made, or resentment towards her sister for imprisoning her when it wasn't her fault.

Is that character of Nightmare Moon and actual separate character or is it actually some dark part of Luna's own personality that has simply been locked away?

And that's just off the top of my head. Who knows what seasoned writers could do with this character.

Anyway, sorry for ranting like that. Good picture.

I don't know, the masculinity with Nightmare Moon works somehow. I always felt like, even in the show itself, she was always meant to look a bit...*wrong*. So knowing her gender contrasted with the apparent masculinity in the image hits a neat part of the Uncanny Valley, much the way she does in the show.

Overall, gorgeous image. Well done.

lol. I have too many friends like her in really life. ^^;

Twilight: "She's not."

Pinkie starts singing in the forest of death

Dash: "She is."

I was doubtful of the entire thing and then it just got mind blowningly good. Shutter's my second favorite.
