Did it all in pretty much one single sitting, about 6-7 hours because I was bored and wanted to hurry up and finish this so I can start on something else.
Damn this is a short description. :I


My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic belongs to Hasbro and DHX Media, formerly Studio B.

I'm totally not a MLP fan and have never understood why people can get so into it (idk, maybe if I started watching it, I'd get stuck on it like I did with ATLA) but I really like the dark pony in this image. Looks amazing! You should really do more paintings like this one.

Maybe if you'd like some background information (can't hurt right?):

The one in this picture is called Nightmare Moon, formerly known as Luna, controller of the moon, she was originally the younger sister of Celestia, ruler of the land called Equestria and controller of the sun. They had ruled for a long time in balance as immortal Diarchs (2 monarchs), until Luna noted how her subjects relished and praised Celestia's Daylight more then the nighttime and her moon, while she was cast aside into the shadows and ignored (at least from her perspective). Celestia was beloved by her subjects, while Luna was avoided or even feared sometimes. One night when it was to much for her, she let an entity of Darkness overcome her desires of vengeance against her subjects and Celestia, to teach them a lesson, and she refused to lower the moon to make way for the sun. That night, Luna turned into Nightmare Moon, the one you see here. Celestia tried to reason with her, that all life would extinguish if she kept the night eternal, but Nightmare Moon refused to listen.

They fought, it was a long and hard fight, and in the end, Celestia used 6 powerful magical artifacts, called the "Elements of Harmony" (comparable to the Triforce, if you want), to Defeat the Nightmare and banish her into the moon, but for the cost of her possessed younger sister going with her into banishment, still possessed by her inner demons, Until a time would come when she could return (lots of tragedy here).

After this, the elements turned to stone and went forgotten, while Celestia had to rule the kingdom by herself stricken with sadness, controlling both the Sun and Moon.

The stories became legends,
The legends became myths,
The myths became fairy tales,

Until 1000 years later, a purple unicorn named Twilight Sparkle, personal student and prodigy of Celestia, found a book that told the story, and she knew that it had to have some truth in it...
Because she remembered something she once read... in a book.

That's the beginning of Episode 1.

I-uh, think you should swap those titles XD  Also these two would make a crazy duo, Nightmare would be Vader's steed Hmm. Evil plotting in progress.

Intimidating and a great parallel to boot. I love the shading on both of them, and Vader's cloak is so well done! I love the wings and space mane/tail on Nightmare too. Who needs a long description with the art speaking for itself?

I've always loved the mental image of Vader flying her into battle, but this really presents them as villainous equals. Awesome work!

Vader looks a bit... short. And IDK why, but something is wrong with lightsaber - it feels somehow incorrectly placed.

Other than that, good one!

I think it's because Darth Vader went to the moon and bring another dark side user.
