1000 Years Ago by Valkyrie-Girl 1000 Years Ago by Valkyrie-Girl
First piece of My Little Pony: Frinedship is magic fan art in my gallery! Am i cool now?

Have you ever watched horses fight? It's pretty intense. There's biting and kicking and stomping and running after each other and running into each other. They're big, heavy animals and they use every inch of it. Now add pointy, stabby things to their faces and wings and human intelligence and jealousy induced madness and things just get that much worse (or better).

Anywho, I thought I'd take a stab at depicting the epic battle that took place between Luna and Celestia 1000 years in the past. Luna hasn't quite fully transformed into Nightmare Moon yet (or just hasn't gotten her fancy armor), hence the darker coloring.

Blood on both sides will be spilled. This is awesome! Powerful, very final. And the shading just rocks.

im just surprised that CELESTIA didn't end up dead because back then celestia was about luna's ( season 1) size and night mare moon was (and still is) bigger then celestia with a longer horn, larger and more powerful wings, more magic, and according to some dipictions had fangs so the fight was to nightmares advantage yet SHE LOST

Celestia is immortal btw. She cannot die till she wants to.

Then realize season 4? That proves celestia was still the same now.

yes i saw, which is puzzling because it 1) contradicts the returned luna (season one which supports the snowdrop video)
2) contradicts the snowdrop thing and (shows celestia the current size of luna)
3) nightmare moon totally kicked celestias but until she used the elements of harmony.  
also I like how nightmare moons magic glowed turquoise but why did she not use her horn when she returned?  

oh and a 4th contradiction is the stained glass, (shows celestia with only pink hair and luna with only blue and lighter color) supports 1 and 2

And the returned luna weakened from the evilness. But she returned her strength and 'leveled up again'.

That's because the stained glass is just like that. For example, if cadence was there, her mane would be either yellow, pink or purple. If it was twilight, either dark blue pink or purple. Stained glass can't really affect your mane much although twilights was exactly hers because her picture was HUGE and could capture her regality (rarity)

you sure? what about the elements of harmony vs discord stained glass? discord looks like discord, and the detail is accurate on everpony  except on raritys hair witch looks blue (twis hair still shows pink and purple), also about cadence, if you look closely at the window thet shows spike saving the day, it has cadence with yellow, purple and pink hair. so is it questionable for the windows to show celestia as a pink haired only alicorn and luna as seen in season 1?

Actually, celestias hair was pink in the book, so yah. I guess the people who made the stained glass became lazy. :P

it was also pink when it showed luna and celestia defeating discord ( the window not the episode)

Mountains fell, day became night, night became day, and all shuddered in fear. For in the skies above, the gods were at war. No matter who the victor was, nothing would ever be the same.

This is amazing!!! You did an excellent job with this and I know what you mean, I've seen a couple horse fights and you just hope that they don't get too injured in the fight and that you're not too close to it.

I've just watched two Mustangs fight on Discovery's new special, North America... A horse's kick has over 2000 pounds of force, now make them magically enhanced... yeah the fight would be pretty damn bloody

Wow, what a striking image. One of the scariest depictions of Luna / Night Mare Moon I've seen, too - you've really captured her lunacy (no pun intended!) exceedingly well here. Her expression that is nothing but a mask of seething anger, the way she's staring at Celestia with those slitted pupils, the inky blackness of her once-dark blue coat... yeah, it's obvious that things have REALLY gone bad here, and they're only going to get worse.

And Celestia knows it - although her expression's mostly one of grim determination, although she knows full well that she has to fight with everything she's got now, you can also see the sadness in her eyes, I think. Despite everything, this is her beloved sister who she's battling - and somewhere beneath that shell of jealousy and hatred, there's still that terrified little filly that just wanted to be loved and admired the same way that her sister was, the sister she looked up to so much.

Yes, definitely a striking image.

Wow! Thank you so very much! I love it when people tell me exactly what it is about piece that they like.

You've described the exact feelings I was trying to communicate in this picture. Man it's been so long since I did this. I've kind of been considering revisiting it.
