I tried to draw some realism but ughhhh... it totally failed TT^TT
I always wonder... nightmare moon isn't really evil or anything.. sometimes she's just lonely
like Luna. But she so sad that it makes her infuriated. so she forcibly tries to obtain happiness ><
regardless, enjoy the picture and I do apologize the mane looks awful
please do not steal in any manner for I have legally cc'd this
Few things confuse me a bit though; where is her horn? it seems a tad bit small, in my opinion for a horse her size, maybe a bit of it was covered with the light, but I would like to be able to see it a bit clearer, since right now it could be an ear too...
Her right hind leg looks twisted? (back hind leg?). I guess after staring at it for a while I can figure out it's not, but the side spike should be shorter then the middle spike, if not then the bottom spike could be extended a bit longer, or used to show that it is the bottom spike that goes around her foot and her foot is the right way around.
Almost the same thing with her right foreleg (back foreleg?), this one's a bit better, I can see your trying to show her leg on an angle, but the spikes on her feet should all be symmetrical, so the middle spike could be moved over a bit and the side where it twists around the foot could be a bit rounder and headed more of an angle downwards to give it a 3D symmetrical look. Basically what I'm trying to say is that the middle spike looks like it's been hammered towards the right , pointing it more upwards would help.
Cutie marks are usually on the pony's flank, it would look more natural if it was moved back and downwards a bit, right now it's sort of in the middle of her stomach and flank.
And lastly, maybe this is just me, but she looks a tiny bit squashed sideways and pulled vertically. I know she's supposed to be on an angle, yet I just can't shake the feeling she could be a bit longer...
The tail is beautiful but it seems to be coming out not exactly where it should be? If you look at the lines where the tail leads to, it doesn't look like the middle of her bottom, it looks a bit like the top of her back... Or maybe it's just how there are short hairs around the outside that causes the weird look.
Sorry for my nitpicking. I love the art, the colours work beautifully together and the blending of the colours are very natural, I also love the light source, and how it adds depth to the picture. Her wings are beautiful, they look like crystals! And the anime styled eye just adds a beautiful touch to it, sad and human like. Overall I Love It~
I'm mesmerized with her mane!!! She looks just adorable and really beautiful!!!
Great piece of art, love it!!!
This is at least 100 times better than anything I will ever draw. So pretty.
I have no words for it...AM,AZING!! >W<
