The Dark Queen by CosmicUnicorn The Dark Queen by CosmicUnicorn
Perspective study with Nightmare Moon.
I'll probably be annoyed with it in a week, but we'll see.
For now, I'm happy with it.

detail: [link]

Nightmare Moon would be an evil Queen, not an evil Princess.
I also imagine her having a very modular sleek castle, very opposite to Canterlot and Celestia. More science-fiction than fantasy... etc.


Several hours. Wacom tablet, Photoshop CS3.
Process: [link]

<3

EDIT:
Fiddled with the shadows and the throne. Adjusted some lighting.
Also, now in .png

Also, I lost the working file because I am an idiot, so I can't make any more changes on it. So while I love your critiques, please no more... because they'll just make me sad and frustrated because I won't be able to follow up on them... T____T

Wow, now that's great. A dark queen on a dark throne - but oh so beautiful.

BTW, I suppose that without the working file, there's no chance for a higher-resolution version? This'd make a wonderful wallpaper.
