UPDATE 3 I can't believe I forgot to link the reference pic! :ohnoes: I thought I did but then I realized I only did a sketch of it, not a complete pic and I thought I linked it back along with credit but I didn't! >_> I am such an idiot. :iconheaddeskplz: I used faestock pic for a reference. Laurel - Sitting pose reference 25 by faestock

UPDATE 2 I shrink her left eye a little since I noticed it's a little too big, making the right eye look out of place. :\ I also changed a background a little by adding a new layer of black and put it on Soft light using Photoshop.

UPDATE I had to change the starry background because you can hardly see it. I also added some more stars and pearls.
I even included a giant crescent moon so she can sit down and show off her pearls and her glory. :3


I meant to finish it on Halloween but I ran out of time(again) since My Little Pony Friendship is Magic has their own Halloween night, Nightmare Night. :D

Based on my WIP sketch, I drew Nightmare Moon as a Sailor Senshi known as Sailor Nightmare Moon based on anime, Sailor Moon.

I had to fix her left  hand as it was too short on Photoshop.

I used Pimpypants  Pearls brush for Photoshop to add the pearls on Sailor Nightmare Moon since I figured it would be more suitable for her. :3

I used Coby17 Clouds Photoshop Brushes for space clouds in the background.

I was quite amazed that it turned out well! O_O I was gonna do some shading but after looking at it, I decided to leave it as it is.

Happy Late Nightmare Night, everyone! :halloween:

Wow really nice one :D. Hmm though you might wanna adjust the background slightly as it kinda makes Nightmare blend with it

Thanks.  :meow:
I'll edit it again later. XD Before, there was hardly any stars as if I never made them so I had to do this instead.

Very nice.
The black greatly intensifies the blue, giving it a more radiant look.
Honestly I see no problems with this piece except for the face. It just seems...off.

It was based on this pic. vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/v…
She had the coolest design so she was my first favorite MLP villain until Queen Chrysalis came along and became my first. XD So now she's my second fave.
I was going for the Equestria Girls style as seen here. i.ytimg.com/vi/GuNMBry0wdo/max… That's why her face looks odd.
I tried giving her a lipstick but it didn't come out right so I took it off. :\
