Thank you to ~KeinZantezuken for the inspiration, he suggested the setting for this painting and the result is, I think, a combination of both our ideas...
What if Nightmare Moon had succeeded in bringing eternal night to all of Equestria? What if Twilight and her friends, had failed?
With no sunlight to feed their crops, the ponies disappeared long, long ago. Celestia is still missing, banished to who-knows-where by Nightmare Moon all those years ago. Equestria is a shadow of its former self, and with nothing left to hate, Nightmare Moon faded away, leaving only Luna behind, alone, forever...
Luna mourns for her past, and for her sister. But perhaps there is hope, yet? Can she find her sister and restore Equestria?
I wanted to paint Luna 'grown up' like Celestia, so her colouring is slightly different, and her hair has become an aura like her big sister's.
Luna is in the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters, as seen in Episode 2 of MLP FiM.
