The Vengeful Night by MoreVespenegas The Vengeful Night by MoreVespenegas
A quickish portrait I wanted to do for a while and managed to knock it out a few hours.
It's funny how you can work on something for a week and hate it but something that takes a few hours doesn't look half bad.
I think I overwork some of my pieces.

Wonderful work.

Nightmare Moon is a beautiful villain. Intentionnally. Really. So the kids wouldn't be too scared of her. I'm serious.

Got EQD featured. Congrats!

Thanks, the villains aren't really designed to be scary as it's a kids show, but they are as complex as we want them to be.  
NMM backstory can look really dark and tragic if you let it.

That...and just the fact that, for me anyway, half of the time I get too lazy to ever go back to a drawing. So it's best if done in one sitting.

That shading.

That wavy mane.

That swirly armour.

That piercing gaze.

Ladies and gentlemen, we've found a winner; abandon your artistic mediums, for this is the single greatest Nightmare Moon portrait ever.

Very neat! I can't believe that only took a few hours.

By the way, someone stole this and claimed it as their own:
