Thank you


June 2011

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.

Wow. That dark part of her that made her into Nightmare Moon is a coward. Using Luna as a vessel, and when that darkness had its fun with everything destroyed and sadness has spread, it just leaves her to be alone with the devastation created by her dark side. Unfair and uncool. Beautiful. :)

No one knows what they really want. Not until you get what oyu thought you wanted.

Luna wanted eternal night, she got just that

Reminds me of Past Sins, where Nyx is contemplating whether to raise the sun or not.
(Awesome story, recommend reading it 10/10)

I freakin' love Past Sins. It's one of my all-time favorite FIMfictions.

It's remarkable I haven't seen more pieces like this. Eternal night isn't even remotely healthy for a planet's biosphere. Bad stuff happens, like what you just mentioned... But it could also result in an ice age. Which is even worse than crops not growing, because then the cold is out to kill you too, not just hunger.
