Inner Conflict by Whitestar1802 Inner Conflict by Whitestar1802
Sometimes the ghosts of our past follow us down the road of life..

Something spontaneous. I realised I've never drawn Nightmare Moon before, so it was good practice. Once again I've learned giving pure black any sort of shading is a bitch. :lol:

I hope you guys like it. ^^

Wow... just... WOW!

Not sure how you drew this, but it's just so fluent and smooth... I give it a 5 on Technique

Due to personal feelings, I cannot give a fanart a 5 in Originality, but I want to score this as high as I feel I can.

The Vision and Impact... I wish I could score higher. My favorite way to view these two characters is just that... as two characters. I've always been interested in the idea of chracters with split personalities, and I have a headcanon that Nightmare is another entity that exists within the recesses of Luna's mind... think... Jean grey and Phoenix sort of. This is one of the few pictures of these two that I get that feeling from, Like Luna is aware that Nightmare is always there with her and if she doesn't stay strong, she might take over again...

Like I said at the beginning... just wow

Awesome any total drama fans? If so this should be the same well not exactly but they should make it that mal had a sad backstory and got possed by something sort of like nightmare moon or a dark force like catastrafa fanfics explain she is not here anymore but if you look up her name you can still find most of her total,drama fanfics she is making her own fan made season for total drama check it out it's awesome for mike and personalities fans and TD in jeneral alsosailorcuremarble14 is awesome too embemb14 made a comic version of total,drama remembering it has a back story for mal and mike in jeneral check them both out it's great stuff

Shading black things? Tell me about it. Bleh. Anyhow, this is nice! I think considering the difficulty of said topic, you did a wonderful job pulling it off. It's a nice drawing overall, and even though it's a silly detail, I like that their shoes look like... well, shoes. Sometimes I see art where the shoes are like morphed to the hooves of the princess depicted. o.e Great work though!
