The Mare in the Moon by ShelltoonTV The Mare in the Moon by ShelltoonTV
A lovely vector tracing of a Nightmare Moon sketch I saved way back when on /co/

Don't know the original artist other than it's signed Del Con '10


So, remember, I did not draw the original sketch, I only vector traced it and gave it color because it happened to be my favorite Nightmare Moon sketch.

Seeing as you let ~Durpy recolor this and all that. Would it be alright if I uploaded it as a blank line art? On my base account of course ~PokemonPixels

So I finally found out where this was from...yeeeeeeah. I was looking for the source of this ever since I ran across it on a google image search and realized it was my's only been posted on FA if I remember correctly. I was quite concerned at first, people normally ask me before doing anything to my art - but at least you've made note of my old sig there with the Delcon 10 in the description. I'd very much appreciate it if you'd update the credits however because of the original sketch belonging to me. Thanks.

it looks nice, but i like the sketch better, idk i guess i just like the more "hand drawn" feel it has. and i love the shading on the sketch.

I wonder if you could at the very least create a vector of Spike as a giant macho warrior from "A Dog and Pony Show" where he valiantly fought off the Diamond Dogs and rescues Rarity as a unicorn princess.

Wait, what? I didn't comment on how absolutely gorgeous this is yet? My bad.

You captured the spirit of the original, which is terrific itself, but you brought it to life in such a wondrous and dazzling. It looks like you actually shaped most if not all of the lines yourself. The color scheme is fantastic, and the translucent layers of mane and tail, filled with the beautiful sparkles, gives it an ethereal and magical feeling. You stayed true to the original in every way I can tell but also made it a thousand times better.

Teh sketch is cool but your colored version is more awesomeness!

Del Con sounds like a shortened form of Deludedcon. I know she's into MLP, and I think she's drawn some Night Mare Moon.

I love the way you did the hair though. :D

You know, I feel like a total idiot, but it took me THIS long to figure out that the blue swirly stuff with the stars around Nightmare Moon was her mane and tail. I always perceived it as magical energy or something.
