ATG Day 10: The Choice by ParadigmPizza ATG Day 10: The Choice by ParadigmPizza
ATG day...10? What? But what about day 9?!

Don't worry, that IS going to get finished, Its just that I'm putting quite a bit of effort into that one. Plus I putzed around with ideas for far too long today, so that doesn't help either.

Anyway, the theme was "Draw a pony making a decision." I always imagined that whatever outside forced helped Luna turn into nightmare moon was fairly direct in her offer, probably after a large argument she just had with her sister. Either live a life forever in the shadows and unloved, or become something powerful enough to show everypony the wonders of the night.

Bleh, I'm pretty unhappy with this one. Except Nightmare Moon, she turned out pretty good.

the choices we all make
the choices that shape
the choices that we regret
even to this day
what was I thinking
why did I listen to her vice
like the ice
that froze over
the tears I couldn't cry
all of those years filled with the hate
telling me it's her fault
and telling me just wait
wait for your opportunity
the chance you can't miss
she'll beg for your love
and all you'll do is eclips
over shadow her land in darkness
what has always belonged to you
the fools
the tools
that will bend to your rule
I could have easily ignored it
but instead I stumbled
and gave in
I have the power of the night
of the dark
and of shadows
this game I could easily win
But I didn't
and almost paid again
for my doing
my plots against my blood
and this hatred that's been brewing
so now upon every choice
I remember that night
and ask myself
will I surcome yet again to darkness
or follow her hooved steps in to the light.

thank you again my friend for the inspiration to write these
do with them as you please for once I hit post this belongs to you
again keep up the brill work and have a good day

If these are vectors then I can definitely see Nightmare Moon on a shirt. True, throwing a princess who fought Discord into such disastrous disarray must be hard.

Good Drawing!

I like it the idea was good and i love your choice in using two different styles for the picture. the only things I can recommend is that the Luna at the bottoms neck looks to long to me but that's just me. the second is that the Luna in the upper right is just floating on her own. It would be better if she was connected to the other Luna more like nightmare moon. other than that it really good picture.

No, you're right, her neck is definitely too long. I was also going to do something to the effect of having the other Luna head no just floating there, though I forgot about. Though both of those can be contributed to the fact that this was rushed since I didn't have a whole lot of time to complete it when I started. I also wasn't really in love with the idea, but since people seem to really like it those are things I'll fix pretty soon.

Good concept and really well done. I like the expression and the way the colors are layed out makes it look cool!

This is what I was going to draw for yesterday, but seeing your take on it I'm glad I didn't... You did it so much better! Awesomely done, I love the expressions.
