Nightmare Moon Headshot by Nummeh-Marble Nightmare Moon Headshot by Nummeh-Marble
Thinking about making an ask blog for her, and if I do (which is likely given I draw a few more sketches to see if I can handle this) this will be her look. There's a reason for the lack of armor (besides that I've always wanted to draw her without it), so stay tuned for that. Tumblr blog name is askthenightmareprincess, though it's not up and running yet. ^^

I think Nightmare Moon's the most underrated villain. Before King Sombra everyone dubbed her the "worse" in comparison to Discord and Chrysalis. 9: Which is ironic because EVERYONE loves Luna. NM M probably has to have the most depth character-wise and is the most open for creative ideas. Discord is really awesome, not gonna lie, but Chrysalis... /really/?

Sombra is still better than her. Because everyone knows Sauron is better than Darth Vader

I really do love this picture, but if you're going to have a blog, wouldn't it be cooler to make her a bit less evil? She's still a villain, or whatever. But she's putting herself out there on the askthenightmareprincess blog to correct all the people who misunderstood her intentions, and to give her a platform from which to speak her mind about everything that annoys her. She can bitch about the scarcity of quality henchmen, etc. And she can call Luna a crybaby whenever Luna gets brought up.

Though I've come to really like NM, and I don't really see her as a bad character (even though she is), this could be really awesome.

Good luck with everything, and awesome picture!

:D Thanks for the input! You have a good. Actually, my first idea for a NM M blog was something more along the lines of a Charlie Brown-esque character (i.e. everything bad happens to her, she's hardly acknowledge by other characters). She was gonna be a lot more "cute" and "innocent" looking, sort of Luna being her and emulating Butters from South Park (and how he made his "evil alter ego" Professor Chaos). Whole point of the blog was she hated being the "least favorite" villain and her trying to prove herself, but since King Sombra has kind of filled that slot I feel like I missed my shot. XD It is possible I can work the idea in the future. But I want this one up first. Maybe I'll draw the cute looking NM M that I envisioned for the blog in the future.

For this one, though, she's not really doing anything bad, per se. Her intentions or any sort of 'plot' that may arise won't be in til the end. Ever since it was revealed Luna can see into other ponies' nightmares I thought that was a cool platform to expand on, so odds are this blog will be a mix of viewing other ponies' nightmare arcs, with questions NM M answers in between. This is part of the reason why she lacks armor, she's not looking to fight, she's in an earlier stage at this point. I've also got sort of my own idea of exactly where she stemmed from too.
