Welcome to the Nightmare by ecmajor Welcome to the Nightmare by ecmajor
Nightmare Rarity :D
You might not know the context of this if you've not read the IDW comics... but this is the villain from the second story arc (issues 5-8)
The comics are really great, you should read them if you haven't!
Nightmare Rarity is really awesomely designed. It seems that EVIL makes her mane even MORE fabulous!

This was a lot of work, but i'm pleased with how it came out. Enjoy!

So glad that I finally got to meet you at BronyCon!  

Your sense of realism in MLP equines is always amazing, and you are one of the very few artists that can pull off a convincing equine anthro as well...

Keep those ponies coming!

HOLY shit and thensome.. :wow: This is such an utterly perfect depiction of Nightmarity, she's scarily gorgeous looking, and all the more cooler with the fitting background and atmosphere you gave this piece, wonderful work :D

To quote the Mask: "Ssmmokin'!"

Beautiful - incredibly so. This baby is definitely headin' up to my favourites and will probably serve as inspiration for myself try my hand at Nighmare Rarity...

And yeah, evil does seem to make her even more fabulous. <3

This is one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen! ♥
You made an amazing job mixing realistic and MLP style. The background and the floor looks in total harmony with her image and the lights and shading looks fabulous, just like the Nightmare Rarity.
For me, the ruby necklace and the "snails" are not necessary and doesn't fit totally with the art, but I consider this a masterpiece.

I have seen show accurate ponies and I have seen real ponies..... This is the first time I have seen the two blended together beautifully.

What I'm trying to say is that I love this style. The more muscular (real) body and the show accurate head and hooves blend together beautifully in this piece.



It also helps that Nightmarity is best nightmare. Just saying.

Yeah, i like horses, and have a bit of practice drawing them... and i come from a background leaning toward realism rather than cartoon stuff, so both of those things definitely show in my ponies i'd say :P It took a little time to figure out how to make the combination work, but i think it's safe to say it does now!
Glad you like it! <3

I do want to read the comics, but I can't afford them.  However, I love her color scheme.  Her mane really is fabulous here.  :D

You're right. They are great. I've both the main series and the micro ones.

Gosh! She is gorgeous the way you drawn her. You really know how to make them look so beautiful. I agree about her mane. Most beautiful nightmare... after Nightmare Moon. At least more fabulous.

Amazing piece.
