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.

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?!

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.
