This is my second submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 37 theme: draw a pony movie poster. This was kind of a random idea I got when I was looking for episodes that would make good epic movie posters. I figure this would be one of those “based on a true story” renditions of the events of the season 1 pilot episodes.
Doing the moon as a sort of peep hole to Nightmare Moon was interesting. Mostly because it makes her look a little weird. But also because the eye positioned that way is a little freaky.
I also considered silhouettes of the rest of the main six themselves, but ended up going with the cutie marks because they’re more distinct given the form.
Took me a bit over 5 hours overall with Prismacolors.
