P.S. Please, stop whining that she's on the moon and not inside of it.

I love the fact that all of the split-personality tic-tac-toe games ended in a tie

This is really beautiful!!

I know this was uploaded super long ago, but do you have a higher resolution version? Would make an awesome 2K or 4K wallpaper <3

:star::star::star::star::star: Impact

I just want you to know that this is incredible. I adore everything about it.

Vision: The visual aspect of this is very intriguing and uniquely set. The quality and effort put in to this is VERY noticeable, which makes it even more appealing.

Originality: Though this isn't the most original image I've seen, it off-sets other's interpretations of Nightmare Moon when she was banished. The chain around her neck also amplifies the original aspect that you are obviously going for. The mane and tail and the background is soothing that I really wish to point out.

Technique: The style that you put into all your pieces is something that I personally admire. This image extends that adoration even further. Again, I will reference the mane and tail, as well as background. This adds a foreign effect that is a widely appreciated facet artwork like this.

Impact: The impact that this image has amazes me. Nightmare Moon has a look of sheer satisfaction on her face as she awaits her imminent return to avenge herself. It plants a chilled feeling inside the person who sees the image while giving them a definite sense of pleasure.


Okay. I also want to point out how awesome this is. The concept is gorgeous, the background is gorgeous, Nightmare Moon is gorgeous, heck, this whole picture is gorgeous! Wheatley in the background is hilarious and the expression on Nightmare Moon is awesome. Excellent work, Underpable.

This is my first critique, hope It will be good.

So, let's begin with this : this picture is amazing ! I give 5/5 for the vision, because you can truely see Nightmare Moon's feelings here : She is enchained but looks full of hope because she will be back on earth in less than 1 minute.
The details (Wheatly, the tic-tac, the chrono) add a lot of humanity in the drawing : I cann see all this little things that makes everything what it is.

But the image is not relly original : it's just another Nighmare Moon stuck on the moon. But the idea to make her play tic-tac with herself, the fact that she's totally vulnerable and the angle of view make this picture more original than others, so I give a good 2,5/5.

I don't have to say lot of things on the technique, only that the armor pieces looks a teeny tiny more sketchy than the rest. For me it's a 4,5/5.

The only impact for me is "wow". Just "wow".

Ok, this is my first critique comment. So I hope its not to bad.
First of all I think the picture is just amazing. My favorite part is how you made her playing tick-tack-toe with herself on the moon. My second favorite part is just how you made Luna, your made her stunning! But I'm going to be picky about this, and I am sorry but I think Luna's shoes or whatever could've been a bit better, they look a bit sketchy. I don't know if you did that on purpose. But this is beautiful. Great Job. Its Gorgeous.

This is the first critique I've done in this format, so I hope it's alright..

First, this is one of the most beautiful depictions of Nightmare that I've seen.
The technique you've used with her mane, though somewhat simple, is absolutely wonderful.

For originality + impact I give a 4-4.5 because overall, it's Nightmare still stuck on the moon.
However.. you've drawn her in a unique way; showing a content smile on her face, knowing that she's about to be freed, rather than wicked and vengeful toward her sister.. Which is a very nice change.

Her lack of armor and the angle of her body also amplify the feeling. She's completely exposed here, but is looking up at the world, seemingly happy just to be going back.

The chain with a timer is also a nice touch, I've seen the whole "chained to the moon" thing before, but never like this. And the collar itself is rather elegant looking even though it doesn't seem to have much time spent on the individual sections of the chain.
(and the addition of the doodles and Wheatley are a funny/cute touch)

Personally, I think it might look better with a bit more detail in the sparkles of her mane, and the stars.. and maybe the links to the chain.

But other than those few things, this is a wonderful, breathtaking piece.

The shading in this picture is beautifully done!
I love how you added the collar around nightmare moons neck! It brings a different kind of side to the story of her be banished and the she's actually trap there on the moon. The little drawings in the moon are epic! Luna has to entertain herself somehow ^^ <3
The angle on the face is amazing. Yet I would've liked to see more angle on the body.
I SEE IT! I SEE THE WHEATLEY! OMG! HECK YEAH! THIS PICTURE IS PERFECT!
I feel like there can be more shading on the mane. It seems you stuck with one kind of darker shade then using three or four like you did with the body.
The world can be a little more detailed, maybe add some lights.
The timer on the collar is genious...I really like how you added that!
Your version of her banishment is epic! I love how shes patiently sitting there waiting to escape.
Great job :3
i love the style and the body proportions espacialy the Face :3
