Nightmare fail-moon by Longinius-II Nightmare fail-moon by Longinius-II
Sometimes stuff just doesn't work out ,and while you guys are waiting for heart-butt to be finished, I want to share some of my frustrations with you. :D

It's especially a shame for this picture, because I really enjoyed the lines themselves, the pose came out pretty good, and close to what I wanted... But by the time I started colouring it it all kind of fell apart. There are so many issues with her mane itself that just didn't work out. I wanted to give it more of the transluscent look that the show has (Which I never draw on my other princessses) But my efforts have turned into failure. I dunno, I just couldn't wrap my head around how to go about doing it. Maybe one day I'll try again, with a different picture mind you, but sadly this one will go to the growing pile of abandoned works. Thsoe are what make me so slow, since I do a LOT of sketches, a lot of ink work, but colours are still the bane of my existance.

Hope you guys will be patient for the next finished colour image, it may still take a while... ^^;

I really like this pic and mostly due to the colors. It's so cool that you made Nightmare Moon not just black coated (with the necessary shading) but void black beyond contrast. I really like the look of it!

Nyam it's a personal failure for me, it's not up to the standard I wanted. Well, I'm still happy people seem to like it.
