Lunar Divide by AssasinMonkey Lunar Divide by AssasinMonkey
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.

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.

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!

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. ;)

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.

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!

You should totally do the clash of the Element's magic and Nightmare Moons, then both of them facing Discord. That would be awesome.

You did good in both of these, though I prefer Moon's, due to all the lovely blue hues. 
Great renditions. Well done :)
