Pregnant Nightmare Moon by xniclord789x Pregnant Nightmare Moon by xniclord789x
Commission for :iconpoomxp:

Well, this is it. This is the very last picture of the Pony Collection, and the last picture to be submitted on Furaffinity. Nightmare Moon.

A friend brought up the idea of a throne. And I still just throw her on the moon. Damn my un-originality. It still looks nice. And I've skipped the shading process. I just used gradients. And the Space background looks lovely. I could have draw the Earth, but I have no idea how it looks like of the equestrian world. Pinkie says it's round, but does it spin? Why does Celestia have to move the Sun? Unless the Earth doesn't spin, but what does it do in Space? Just sit there? Or it does spin, but very slowly. It's confusing. If those Alien cats on Futurama had a cat god that moves the sun... okay, I'm going too far. So I hope you like this piece. It's the last. No more ponies are coming. The collection is complete.

I just realized something!

Princess Celestia has a niece and a nephew, Princess Cadence and Prince Blueblood. Unless Luna and Celestia have a forgotten, long-lost sibling, that would make Princess Luna their mother. And since it's technically only been about a year so far since Princess Luna returned from the moon, that means she would have had them while still on the moon.

Crazy, right?

What if Celestia actually just spins the earth and just says she moves the sun because that sounds a lot more magical and stuff. And also Celestia wasn't really able to move the moon when Luna was away for a thousand years, but the moon just remained on one side while Celestia let the earth spin, making it look like look like the moon moved too. 

Or maybe Luna was still moving the moon and actually just kept in the Canterlot castle' basement not being allowed to eat or something if she didn't rise and set the moon. And the whole Nightmare Moon stuff was just set up cause she needed Luna for something and didn't want her sudden comeback to look suspicious.

Also, does she do it 24/7?  She does sleep, right?  I don't care if magic, just confusing shit.  The theories I came up is that, it's another dimension, a magic realm, and it couldn't use the real sun, so a fake sun was made to set in that world.  I mean, she wouldn't be moving the sun 24/7 unless someone on the other side is moving it.  But it still leaves the Earth spinning very slow, or not spinning at all.  So it's a fake sun in a magic realm world.  But what does the moon do?  She moves it too.  So how much magic does she have to keep up?  This is just dumb.  The writers only made it for kids to understand, I guess.  It's magic.  That's all we can explain.

I like the gradient effect you used. I seems pretty fitting for a mare stuck on the moon.

Awesome work of Nightmare Moon, here. :D
It may be a shame that this is it for your pony work, but I think it's nice that it ended with a picture as great as this. :nod:
Thanks, xniclord789x, it's been a great ride. :)

Thank you so much for everything, xniclord789x. It's been a long run since last year if I'm right. I'm very glad that I commissioned all of these ponies. Yes, everything in the picture is really perfect, Space background are one of my favorites thing in my life. I always wonder what is out there outside the Earth. Nightmare Moon herself looks really stunning and graceful on her throne. You did a great job as always, you will be remembered by your fans. :)

:clap: For a final picture you really went with a bang! Seriously! Nightmare Moon despite being a cruel, vile, unstable villain she looks really beautiful. And the fact that she pregnant makes it even more beautiful. 
For some reason NMM always fascinated me and the whole concept of her being surrounded by children. Whether it's from the IDW comics, the cartoon, fanfiction or both the Children of the Night short,the Snowdrop short and Hijo de La Luna video. 

Maybe she had a relation with a colt and planed to use her foal as a tool for her return or maybe as insurance. That in case she died her child would carry her vengeance. 

Or maybe she used magic to make a child of her own using Celestia's blood(from the fight before she was banished). Maybe that child was Twilight. I mean since Celestia = Day and Luna = Night it would make sense that Twilight would be the one in between. It could explain why Twi could become an alicorn.

And yet what's fascinating about the drawing is how happy and proud is she of having a foal. Maybe when she's looking at her filled belly she could imagine her sinister plans for her while at the same time feel happy that she has life inside of her and that she will become a mother. And that that child could play with other children(in CoTN) she took several foals with her to the moon(I guess it could explain the Lunar guards). 

Maybe it also has symbolism. That Nightmare Moon despite being the immoral, destructive, lustful queen of the night she also has the capacity of love, compassion and kindness. It makes sense when one thinks about it. I mean Celestia forgave her and the children(along with ponyvile) accepted her with open arms. Then again that's my interpretation of the picture. Sorry if it got weird. ^^;
