Nightmare Moon Comforts Princess Luna (2) by 90Sigma Nightmare Moon Comforts Princess Luna (2) by 90Sigma
"Why are you upset, Luna Starlight?"
"My sister and I had another argument. She didn't want to set the sun early so that ponies could see my night."
"I see. She's probably already asleep, like everypony else?"
"Yes. You're the only one that's still awake. You're the only one who joins me after the sun sets. You're... you're the only pony who cares about me."
"Come here, Luna." When Luna approached, Nightmare quickly embraced her. She hugged Luna tightly until Luna started to cheer up again.
"If you want me, you need only call my name. When the odds are against us, I'll stand by your side. Even if we end up completely alone, we'll still be together. I'll always be here for you, Luna."


This image takes the original Nightmare Comforts Luna image and applies the way I drew Celestia Comforts Luna, though I decided to forego tears in this final export. The result I feel is a little better drawn and more emotional than the original image. It also fixes a few minor errors now that I'm more experienced drawing the alicorns. Again, as equines aren't bipedal, Nightmare is leaning on Luna.

Awesome I really like the way Nightmare Moon comforts Princess Luna.It looks different thought Luna...I mean she looks cute when she cries.How come her name change into Star Light?Lol.

You better make this picture with background to make it more nicer.The better it looks the better I like vectors!Awesome awesome awesome,you need to do more of this...lol.

I forgot one thing,Princess Luna is cuter than Nightmare Moon,Nightmare Moon is just a...shes Princess Luna.Luna is younger than her,of course,Luna is Nightmare Moon.Ok...I had mistakes with my english language,sorry.OK.

Adorable, but I liked the pose on the other one a bit better, even if it wasn't as anatomically accurate. NMM using both hooves to hug Luna looks a bit awkward. Of course, it is pretty hard to do alicorn hugs, especially if the "huggee" (Luna) is smaller than the other. You could do it with them sitting down, (in the position Luna is in when she hugs Fluttershy in Luna Eclipsed) but that looks weird on them too. The only natural looking alicorn hug on the show is when Luna and Celestia hug in episode 2, but that one is from a completely different perspective.
Damn alicorns, why are you so hard to pose?!

90Sigma Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012
Actually, the relative size difference of Luna compared to Celestia / Nightmare makes it easier.

Both images were as anatomically correct as I can make them. For this image, I did consider if such a stance would be possible for Nightmare. I'm pretty sure it would be, but she'd be shifting a lot of her weight onto Luna.

Nightmare Moon wouldn't be nice like this she's mean and she'll be beating Princess Luna if these two were seperated apart. Princess Luna is afraid of Nightmare Moon, everyone knows that.

Most agree in terms of headcanon/fanon, 'Pre-Moonfall' NMM was there as a comfort for Luna.

Only after her return and being "saved"/ripped apart by the Elements of "Harmony" did she come to fear NMM/her old self for what she 'remembers' of her Past Sins, with NMM in her mind as a torcher til the day she can accept who she is AND was.  >_<)'7

'Til the day she can accept and embrace herself for all herself, the nightmare hangs over that once hung beside.
Yet upon the dawn of true night, that Luna with herself doth make peace & right.
her true power returns to burn forth the blight  /)'

(a nice idea, if nothing else for a story arc? *coming to grips with her self and restoring her goddesshood there with)

Well, here's hoping could share a little light on the subject or at the very least my on take on things.

(i really am a fan of Luna/NMM as one that knows what it is to be ignore or disregarded despite ones gifts...)

Here's to hope and hoping NMM & Luna alike get the justice they deserve as the two greatest mares of Equestria
^_^  *and not just some overused childish cartoon trope-out finish.

I swear that could be from the show...
It's amazing and I've always thought that Nightmare Moon wasn't 'evil', she just wanted Luna to be happy (I think of them as two seperate ponies in one body) and she thought eternal night would make her happy.

I'm conflicted as to whether Nightmare is truly evil or not. It depends on the image in question as to what her motivations are. For this, she's just trying to get on Luna's good side, so Luna trusts her.

it all depends from the point of view, there isn't really a 'good' or 'bad', just many shades of grey, sure some are lighter than others and some are darker, but none are purely white or black.
If Luna is Nightmare moon:
If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust?
(That would be a good fanfiction)
