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

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.
