See no tomorrow by MetalBladePegasus See no tomorrow by MetalBladePegasus
Queen of the night, bringer of death and eternal darkness, everlasting winter of life. Nightmare Moon has more in common with Slavic paganism than one could expect.
And as fitting as the the theme is the music that sparked and accompanied the process of creation: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zx1Zt… Moony would make a pretty decent striga herself, if not the one to rule them all and conquer the living.

Cookie for anyone that connects the pagan glory to Nightmare Moon.

Well, I was happy to see her again. But it's Luna possessed by evil spirit and I love Luna. So, I'm more to Chryssi now.

MetalBladePegasus Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2017
Damn, thanks a lot! Funny is that since drawing hair usually takes me the longest I tried to simplify it in here. In the end I spent the usual amount of time on it. But to a worthy result as it seems, thanks for being enamored.

I'm happy you love it, thanks a lot. The motion is mostly represented in mane & tail and while drawing those I tried to simplify the design to save some time however in the end I took me the usual amount. Was worth it as it turns out.
