This isn't a typical nightmare-themed pony, but I didn't feel like drawing Pinkie with a black coat or angular features. (And yes, this is a reference to the cover of Past Sins.) Maybe think of this as her in the midst of transformation. :twismile:

Nice....im actually making pinkie pie aswell... DAWWW! 

What i did is just put black armor in Pinkie..because i don't want her to have a darker color and still have princess of chaos on her...

 The theme of this month is Majestic Darkness so naturally i was chosen to present it, take your favorite character and bathe them in the glory of the night and the nightmare forces, let us see what beauty lies in their deepest desires, hidden and unseen out of fear of judgment, free those caged thoughts and let them sparkle like the stars in reflecting in the nocturnal ocean 
 For obvious reasons myself, Luna and Stygian are not legible for this contest, and do not dare defile the calm beauty of the night with nsfw material, forum rules still apply
 Post your entries in this thread, the deadline is at the end of August
 

Hol on! Can we do non ponies? I know you said faorite but I honestly see only folks talk about ponies (I might have skimmed)

Omigosh he looks so good!

Ugh, it makes me sad though... he looks like he’s just so sad and jaded.

Wish I didn’t have to work. I probably already have the base colors done by now. B(

So what made you decide to darken his hair instead of keep it the original color like your Nightmare Dust?

I figured that if he had a dark coat and light warm hair it would look too similar to Lightning Dust. But since that idea was scratched I didn't know what to do with the color palette. So I put various dark filters over his original design to get new ideas. I eventually inverted his original design's colors because I remembered that the opposite of orange is blue :LunaMCM: and so, using what a learned from the dark filters and stealing a couple colors from the inverted edit, the final palette for Nightmare Moonburst emerged :ithastolookpretty:

Hot damn. Quite cool!

Just as Luna's Nightmare was fueled by her feelings of rejection and envy, I'm betting Lightning's fueled by all her enmity at Spitfire, Rainbow,and the other Wonderbolts, as well as her failure involving them and bitterness about being turned away for her actions, and the Nightmare energy giving her the percieved promise of being the ultimate flier in the world.

And you know Dash is going to be the one to break her out of that form.
