Nightmare Night by TheArtrix Nightmare Night by TheArtrix
It's the day before Halloween, and since a lot of you will actually be out there celebrating it, I'll go ahead and upload it for your childish amusement.

I'm not going to claim it's the best thing I've ever done, and some of the coloring is rather experimental, but the overall gist of what I was trying to convey; for this year's Nightmare Night celebration, Princess Luna decided to visit Ponyville. Its inhabitants, all dressed up as fictional characters, are in awe as the ruler of the night performs a spectacle in the night sky.

So let's play a little game, try and guess the fictional characters without peeking at the rest of this description. For those who want to know, here are the characters and what they dressed up as (sans Luna because she's obviously not in costume).

Rainbow Dash: Lara Croft [Tomb Raider]
Pipsqueek: Generic Pirate
Button Mash: Super Mario [Super Mario]
Pinkie Pie: Chell [Portal]
Babs Seed: Toph [Avatar - the last Airbender]
Applebloom: Solid Snake [Metal Gear Solid]
Cheerilee: Zia [Mysterious Cities of Gold]
Sweetie Belle: Princess Peach [Super Mario]
Scootaloo: Zoey [Left 4 Dead]
Rarity: Jade [Beyond Good and Evil]

I wish I had seen this sooner.

Also: Babs as Toph was a good choice.

Yes! Not only amazing art, love that experimental coloring in the sky, gorgeous color and texture, but you gave a shout out to Beyond Good and Evil! My childhood game! :iconchuplz:

It's quite a lovely show Princess Luna is putting on her little humans, literally dancing with the stars (but without the has-beens). Lovely use of sky to show the grandeur while keeping the princess herself closer to her people.

Wonderful selection of costumes, though I don't know why Pip had to be generic when there's a perfectly good Jack Sparrow persona out there. Oh, and is Babs dressed as Toph so she can seed no evil? =p Clever. Also, nice job on the way you made the characters seem less jammed together by, seemingly counter-intuitively, putting the tops of the buildings so close together. At least to me, it gives the illusion that the perspective is barreled whenever I'm looking at the lower third of the picture. (Or maybe I'm just reading way too much into it.)
