Nightmares by Mewball Nightmares by Mewball
i experimented a bit with this one, but i ended up playing it kinda safe. Either way, i can at least call this a successful painting!

That episode might be my favorite in-season episode... It felt so powerful.
I didn't think about a collaboration between Luna and Rainbow Dash though... but now that I've seen For Whom The Sweetie Belle Toils, it feels almost natural for Luna to have warned Dashie about Scootaloo being in danger, explaining her appearance.
I can see the experimentation but I definitely feel like this is a great artwork ^^

You tell me, that old pony reminded me of that crazy bitch from the Drag me to Hell movie, really sick and scary.

Alright. See scootaloo seam very destressed and fearful, (which is perfectly fine and well executed) while luna and rainbow dash look at her with comforting eyes. The idea of the picture got misplaced when the two are combined the way they are. It looks like rainbow dash and luna want scootaloo to be scared, like they are leading her to her horrors, which i guess was not the intend of this picture.

mm that's interesting. I can see why you think that. My intention was for them to just be comforting her, despite her obvious fears. I guess it didn't come off as intended @ w @;

Luna, Scootaloo, and Dash are my favorite ponies so it was amazing to see the episode.
I had a major freak-attack.
But then I saw this.
AND OHMYGOD I FREAKED OUT. HOLY SHIZNUTS THIS IS AMAZING.
The detail, the expressions, the colors, and everything is so beautiful. The colors are played off of each other so well, and you can really define the emotion of the piece. It is self-explanatory- as Scootaloo deals with the nightmares in her head and Dash/Luna have to console her. <3

Awww...I love the arrangement! It really flows nicely. As for anthro poniez I'm not too fond of them...they're a bit suggestive sometimes...
