"It sure has been a while, sister.."

Yepyep, something out of my normal style.

Finally got this one done. Nightmare Moon is a lovely villain and needs some attention to detail.

I haven't painted a human for literally ages, so I've wanted to try one out. So why not try and go for pony humanization. Decided to go for Nightmare Moon as her barbute gave me an excuse to go for armor design and play with metal. She has pretty nice and evil design overall, which I do like.. And altered a bit myself, once again no overly flowywowy incorporeal hair. Just a lil' bit.

Decided not to go for overly fantasy style with armor, just a bit to have some feel and accompany her barbute, but restrained it to look pretty simple otherwise.
*cough* enormous halberd *cough*

Woman's face is something I once again found pretty challenging, it's just so damn delicate if you want it to look like a woman. The smallest of mistakes do show.. Yet my vision is pretty clouded once again and I can't really bother to try and fix it more and more.

I enjoyed working on this pretty well, I might think about painting Celestia as a human in a similar fashion too.

Named after the song of the same title by Dark Moor.

She honestly wouldn't look out of place in a comic book. I ccould easily see her being a new Wonder Woman villain. :iconso-awesomeplz:

Would you mind if I used parts of this design as inspiration for a cosplay? Especially the helmet.
