Guardians of the Night by 90Sigma Guardians of the Night by 90Sigma
"Luna is mine."

From the front, Nightmare has such an unusual head design. Made more unusual that from the side, her head is like the other alicorns'. I don't know if this is the angle, or a different design just for Nightmare.

you know, i have an inkling that some of the stuff Luna went through will come back to bite Celestia some day.
reasons: 1: ponies only started looking at the night AFTER she was bannished; 2: They made a holiday out of the very being that tormented her and got her a thousand-year time-out; 3: other than Twi, how many ponies recognized Nightmare?; 4: she got HOW much screentime?

90Sigma Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
All good points.
Here's another one to consider: During that thousand years, Celestia apparently made no attempt to keep the memory of Luna alive. (I.e. no-one recognised who Luna was or her relationship to Celestia.)

Chances are we'd never see any such event in-show, but it's certainly a logicial result.

uhhhh i mentioned the 'memory of Luna' part when i mentioned and i quote "other thatn Twi, how many ponies recognized Nightmare?"
but on the second part, i didn't hear a zero percent. :giddylunaPLZ:

why isn't that an icon?

Luna and Nightmare could be regarded as separate entities. Twilight recognised Nightmare Moon, but she did not recognise Princess Luna.

I think the issue with NMM's head is just the fact that this was the first episode and they hadn't quite figured out all the perspective issues by that point.

And I wanna hug Woona.

For some reason, the direction her shoe is pointed in on the leg she's got around Luna makes her leg look awkwardly positioned. I don't know, maybe it's just me. Other than that bugging my eyes, it's quite a lovely and adorable piece! :3

Nope, looks fine with Celestia. Maybe it's the design of the shoe that's throwing me off? NMM's shoe appears a bit thinner and off center because of the colors and the design -it's longer along her leg while the black of her coat makes the blue of her shoe really stand out-, while Celestia's color and shoe kind of gives it more leeway, it's shorter at the top and the white against the gold makes the gold appear wider and cover more surface area.

This makes, to me at least, Celestia's shoe give the illusion of curving her leg, so it looks rounded, more three dimensional, and comfortably place around Luna's shoulders. NMM's shoe, being taller and more easily seen in the contrasts of light and dark, gives the appearance of either making her leg flat or awkwardly placed in the same position despite the side-by-side comparison of herself and Celestia showing the leg is just fine where it is.

Does that make some sense? It's actually really early in the morning for me -still dark out-, and I had woken up from a nightmare just before I saw this artwork. (No pun intended I assure you.) So my judgment may be taken with a grain of salt.

It does make sense, and I understand what you mean. I'm not sure what I can do about it though, but I'll give it a try.

If trying to adjust it makes it just look wrong to you, then leave it as is. I'll just deal with that quirk of mine. It's a really nice piece otherwise, it's not often I find art of NMM as anything other than mindlessly evil or something along that line. So your vectors are a refreshing new spin. :3

I have a few images of Nightmare being a good pony here: Vectors - Celestia, Luna and Nightmare. And some images of her being mean.
I have some more images of her being nice in my upload queue as well.
