Nightmare Moon and Princess Celestia Hugging by 90Sigma Nightmare Moon and Princess Celestia Hugging by 90Sigma
"I am so sorry, Luna. That you had to suffer such a fate through no fault of your own."
"I too am sorry for what I did, sister. I should never have let such dark magic influence me."
"You will conduct the trials?"
"Yes, as we discussed. Nightmare will test the chosen ponies. If they are truly representative of the Elements of Harmony, they will prevail."
"My student will not fail me. She will remove the dark powers from you. She will banish Nightmare Moon. Finally, my sister will be returned to me."
The two sisters shared their first embrace in over a millenium.


I wasn't sure whether to portray this as Nightmare / Luna being split personalities again, or being the one personality that had seen the error of her ways. I opted for the latter: that Nightmare had seen the error of her ways. However, the Elements of Harmony would still be required to banish any lingering jealousy and return Luna to her previous form.
Of course, you don't have to interpret this the same way I do. The image after all, is just Celestia and Nightmare hugging.

Great Vector, this is show accurate to the bones. I love everything from the choice of colors, to the pose, it's all really well done.
Art Time!
I want to get the manes out of the way in saying that they look gorgeous, exactly like they should look like, and fantastic in color and volume. You struck it rich.
They noth look excelent in the vector format, with their curves, cutie marks, jewelry, and everything else being really in context with their own personalities and ideas in this piece.
You are one of the few that manages to draw hooves well, and like in your other artworks, the hooves wrap around each other with incredible precision. Not even Nightmare does Hooves that well.
Awesome artwork for an awesome artist!

At first, I thought it was a bad idea for a picture, but as I viewed the picture a little closer, I saw it as really sweet. I loved the way Celestia saw her innocent little sister Luna within the wicked mare of darkness, Nightmare Moon. It made me feel as though even though she tried to shroud Equestria in eternal night, she still shared a sacred bond with her sister. And though Celestia-haters would agree that she had planned this all along to troll the ponies ("Trollestia much?" they would say.), I can't help but think that this picture has made a major impact on the series itself, in its own way.

Other way that she became princess Luna:
I heard the word, "Sorry My Sister..." escape the evil beings lips, but it was not Nightmare, it was Luna! Luna was in there and I needed to get her out! Hesitantly, I threw a hoof around nightmare, making her smile and melt away into the sweet mare that was my sister.

Well, at last this explain plot hole why Nightmare Moon tried to scare mane 6 when she could kill them any moment with her powers.

Still, part where Nightmare send Manticore was a bit of life threatening if it was not for Flutthershy special ability.

CommanderEX Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013
Well, your theory is fall better then official one that Nightmare Moon was some sort of monomaniacal idiot who tried to gain love form ponies by killed them in everlasting night and who played with those who tried to use elements even since she was banished by those elements ( how can someone play with small fire when not so far in past half of his body was burned by bigger fire ).

Your theory seems more logical, hopefully Luna was careful not to hurt mane 6 when she set up her trials, in case they failed, there was no point in killing them for trying.

It's art of something popular that's well drawn and an emotional piece. This is why it's popular. Also, if you complain about not having views, people will see you as a whiner and avoid you.
