Nightmare Moon is best villain

SPEEDPAINTING! Woo. Under 2 hours. Wallpaper formatted btw.

I know that this was a speed painting, and for that you get a 12/10
if I had to try critiquing it would not be really for the piece, but what is not there
you background matches the character and the character itself is amazing (I freaking love the eye effect), along with the excellent executions of shadow cores and other shading effects with the armor, I really do grasp the dimensional of the 'boots' and wing armor
I would just like to see something in the mid-ground, because the moon feels like its trying to do that but it is more of a background piece
What do you think?

i think it looks amazing very well drawn. and very nicely detailed. the backdrop is amazing and very nicely detailed as well. i think that the armor was a very nice addition to the photo it suits nightmare moon very well and captures her personality of hate anger and insecurity. the mane and tail are very well drawn and detailed as well. you should continue to post more drawings like this. i am very much looking forward to more of these amazing photos. keep up the good work. might i suggest that you do one of discord too.

Luna was probably mad at Cadence.

This is what happened:

Luna: You....

Luna points her hoof at Cadence.

Luna: ....Now I'm really pissed off!

Luna pulls out a Nightmare Helmet and puts it on her head.

Dark aura begins to surround Luna.

Then, Luna transforms into Nightmare Moon.

She opens her eyes.

Luna: You're gonna die!
