Yeah, I'm a Luna fan, and I've been wanting to draw her for some time now. This image of her has been stuck in my mind for a few weeks now till I finally decided to get on paper/computer. Turned out a lot better then I thought it would, which I'm happy about.
Poor Nightmare Moon, lost in the shadow of Discord and Chrysalis. It's a shame because, quite frankly, I feel she's a very complex character when you get down to it. Sure she acted like an Unoriginal sort of Villainess, with the evil laugh and the gloating and monologuing and the big NOOOOOOOOO when she's defeated, but her (and by extension, Celestia's) back story is just SO depressing that it's hard not to at least be sympathetic of her. I hope whatever big evil force turned Luna into Nightmare Moon in the first place decides to bring her back, because she deserves another go at the crown.
Oh and in case you were wondering; yes, both Discord and Chrysalis will get a "Deadly Sin" Pic before Halloween. Discord is Pride and Chrysalis is Lust.
Inspired by Luna and the last time she raises the moon, before being overtaken by darkness and becoming Nightmare Moon. Now, she doesn't really raise the moon this way, I just depicted it like this to show how she might have felt inside. As if her duty became more of a chore and she felt trapped in it...
Any feedback and critique on both the picture and song would be greatly appreciated
