Daymare Celestia by 90Sigma Daymare Celestia by 90Sigma
What if the dark magic that 'infected' Luna was received by Celestia instead? All of a sudden, Twilight's freakouts in Swarm of the Century and Lesson Zero seem fully justified. For more evil Celestia, listen to Scarlett Peace's song The Other Side of the Sun.

This is the second image in my "thought experiment" series of images.

I'd always planned to do a Nightmare Moon version of Celestia at some stage; I just kept forgetting about it. Thanks to Skylark-Torch for feedback and for informing me that daymare is actually a real word; one that apparently means "a nightmarish fantasy experienced while awake"* and that its first known use was 1737.

wouldn't she technically be called "Daymare Sun"?

She... actually looks pretty nice.  Her eyes are just too gentle.

Make the helm white with charred edges, and the skin like lava. Call her Solar Flare.

She doesn't look evil at all. She looks like the normal Celestia except she has a flaming mane and tail and wears armor.

It's nice but doesn't really look evil in any way. At least give her an evil smirk.

Nice vector! But if Celestia is meant to be evil in this pic, shouldn't it have a little evil grin on her face?

"Luna" is the Latin name for "Moon".

I never liked the name "Daymare". It sounds so... Cheap. So does Solar Flare.

Besides that, this design is very nice. It isn't that bad.

Technically this should be in the New Lunar Republic instead of the Solar Empire, because y'know, Celestia is evil and all...
