Nightmare Moon

"The night.. Will last.. Forever!"

And finally the work I just finished this day. I really haven't had this much fun drawing since the first pieces of digital art I drew! Especially rendering Nightmare moon was hell of a lot of fun, everything seemed to lock into place! This one came out much better than I expected

Yet those wings are still bothering me...

But anyway, I just need to get out of my "layer cancer".. I tend to always create backup layers and new layers for every goddamn little change I make..
When I counted the layers used, this one took me 62 layers, most of them were only temporal, but still.. The little perfectionist inside of me tells me to avoid failures like a plague.

Reminds me heavily of the Black Riders and that dreadful strike of terror they emanate.

I can't find the damn song with this picture on it X(
It's instrumental and I think it's a kind of piano

I won't use your picture without permission and I will give credit in both the video and in the description along with a link to your DeviantArt page. You can contact me through Deviantart by replying or Email me at

Anyway, the cut off date is October 9th as I need time to make the episode. Please contact me by then. Oh and I might as well give you a link to my channel and the previous spotlight episode.
