It would be really nice that, in the follow up, it had NMR actually proving to her friends that she's still Rarity, just with a new coat of paint.

Possession? An alien parasite? A foreign presence? None must know, it all came from me.

I feel it completely destroys the POINT of Luna's heel face turn in the first episode.

It feel like this.

Character has heel-face turn. Turns out they were brainwashed/possessed/lie to the whole time. 

Character has face-heel turn. Turns out they stole candy from babies/were evil/a spy even when on heroes side.

Meh, the whole idea of a character being taken over by inner darkness is cliche. The Nightmare Force establishes the presence of an undeniably evil entity, that's part of why I love it.

We're on opposite opinion of what's the cliche then.

MLP needs villains that are unquestionably evil, none of that tragedy nonsense, and no fans thinking of them as misunderstood or tragic. Nightmare Rarity-Nightmare Moon fits that bill to perfection.

I'm afraid that I don't follow. What was the point of Luna's heel face turn again?
Reply
:iconalexwarlorn:
alexwarlorn Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2014
The point is that she HAD ONE. Having a character who was GENUINELY EVIL turn GENUINELY GOOD! That's what I LIKED about it!

Ah, I see now. Though, I'm sorry to say that I don't agree with it.

To me, Luna just giving up her vendetta after being shot with the Elements of Harmony and given some kinds words from her sister seemed...too simple. And I know you probably have an explanation for that, but personally I always thought that there was something more to it. That there was something that was, maybe not outright controlling Luna, but at least influencing her actions.

And no, I don't think this absolves Luna of any wrongdoing. I do think that deep down Luna really did want to drown the world in eternal night; the Nightmare Forces just brought it to the surface.

I simply must say that I am very much loving everything that you have done with this piece! Your art style is magnificent and I love the way that you were able to expand upon the concept of Nightmare Rarity and present her as an actual character rather than just an evil being! The emotion that you have crafted both in her form and expression is very refined and of a very high caliber! The linework and contours are elegant and solid which captures her grace and beauty! The landscape that you have created here is breathtaking and deviates from the usual night setting that most tend to give her! The soft textures of the atmosphere contrasting with the solidity of the body work are a wonderful touch and add so much glorious life! The lighting and shading accent eachother perfectly and create a beautiful sense of gorgeous depth! The color work is also brilliant as the lush and subtle colors accent every part of this! This is such a fantastic piece and I would very much love to see much more of your exquisite art in the near future! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Hey, would it be okay with you if I used this image as a cover for a possible fanfic of mine on FIMfiction? I'll be sure to give you credit for it and to show a link to this page if you let me do so {If I end up using it, that is}. Also, this pic is very well done and beautiful. Nice job.:)

If you want to buy them, several digital stores, like Comixology, iTunes, probably Amazon, have them, and retail stores sell them as well. For the other way - Yayponies.
