Radiant Malevolence by thestoicmachine Radiant Malevolence by thestoicmachine
I've wanted to make this since episode 2, though it looks like I'm not the first to attempt a Celestia "nightmare mode" concept.

Was intended for :iconplasters-ponies: summer-sun contest.

This is probably the current extent of my artistic ability.

yeah nightmare mode is a good idea but i prefer the you just fucked with the wrong mare kind of scenario cause the only way i could possibly think of Celestia going this far is someone messed with Luna or the main 6 and caused them to nearly die

By Celestia, if this is the extent of your abilities, then I have a very long road if I ever want to become a pony artist.

This piece was one of the driving factors that led me to become an artist. I saw it and felt like I wante dto make a nightmare Pinkie Pie. I couldn't find anyone to comission it, so I started working, and finally, did it myself. thought you should know...

can you make an alternative comic of my little pony where luna is the kind ruler, where celestia is the jealous tyrant who wanted all of the attention and to be ruler alone, since everypony loves the night.

and after twilight changed celestia back to her origional form, throught the series she visits her more often, kinda like that deep bond of friendship she`d never felt before but it happened as if there`s something more to celestia and twilight.(Which luna is her mentor and twilight only see`s her as a regular mentor who always has that calm personality. yet twilight seems to be bonded in to epicness [a little] and not stern like reality as luna has always performed in a blunt way.) (as most of twilights life she never had freaked out or put overeffort in most of her studies, but shows the most greatest exceptence no teacher has ever seen, and yada yada yada, you know the rest on that episode. I would be thrilled to see that.)
