Lunar Divide

Another quick thingy, quicker than Celestia's piece. To which this a follow up for. Even though I didn't plan to do both when I made 'Celestial Harmony' hehe, but I think worth it right?

Nightmare Moon's colours, oh my, she's like the opposite of Celestia in terms of coat. So dark. At least there was enough to have a contrast with it like the eyes and armour pieces. Plus I used her mane as well, which I used as an excuse for the ring-o-magic.

Approx Time: 4 hours

Vision: I like the fact that the background brings out the main item in this picture

Originality: Never seen anything like this.

Technique: I love the shading in design.

impact: Kinda look real but I know it isn't cuz a evil unicorn isn't going to come in real life...or IS it.

This is my first critique and I really like your picture. WHO DOESNT LIKE A EVIL UNICORN? So yea I keep on drawing things like this. Don't forget to draw mouse eating cheese! (Idk wat dat was I just did)

Wow, first critique! So I hope I do good.

First off, I think you did excellent with the shading and color choice. It sort of brings out the evil side to it, especially with the teeth. The colors stand out very well against the darker areas, and it just looks amazing. The eyes have a neat little glimmer to them, which I think goes very well with the moment. You can really see the evil in her because of them. All I can say is to never stop drawing like this, keep up the awesome work, but also never stop improving!

Your choice of color is excellent, and your shading and blending is quite good. I like your attention to detail like the saliva coming from her mouth and the metal of her armor (the lighting, dents, and molding). The feathers look very soft and are layered very well.

I think that her mane should be better defined and more detailed because it looks like a blob of color that only blends with the background. As for the background itself, I would like to see something else besides a solid color scheme. I think that maybe the outline of the Everfree castle or maybe the night sky and moon. Better yet, the eclipse that Luna/NM caused when she refused to lower the moon.

Overall: I love this picture. It's one of the best I've seen.

I don't have much difference to say here concerning Celestia's piece. The one thing I do like here is it's a little brighter, so some of the detailing, like the feathering on her wings, can show through a little bit better. On this pic it works, however, I will say I'm glad you went with the lighting you did on the previous piece because it keeps the dark tone to it then.

That's quite an intense way to leap out from the clouds and scare the bejeezits out of some unfortunate pony. Great work on the vicious face and especially those sharp pointy teeth. (Telling her to "Bite Me!" is out of the question.) Of course her helmet and that sharpened horn, along with the tremendous and strong wingspan, make quite an impression too. If the technology existed then I'm sure many ponies would gladly install glow lamps rather than complain too much. At least there wouldn't be sunburn anymore. ;)

Are you going to fuse these two together?! That would be awesome!
AssasinMonkey's avatar
I had thought about putting the 2 together in something like a wallpaper. Haven't tried it out yet though, might just have to check that out soon :)

Awesome piece.

Those teeth surely gave her the more intimidating appearence she should have in episode 1.

Awesome, Very Dark atmosphere. really cool :D

haha, saw this on EqD, was like "this looks really familiar....". Awesome piece, i preferred Celestia's one if only for the cool effect the elements gave to her power ring. But still, obviously really great work hard to believe this took only 4 hours!
