I always found Nightmare Moon's sharp teeth to be totally unnecessary, but everything else is perfect...from the dark, ominous lighting to Nightmare Moon's empowered pose.

You've succeeded in making Nightmare Moon look very menacing here. The light from the flames makes the whole scene feel even darker. Very nice work!

<:3 thanks. I certainly will check that out...but I have to wait till Christmas...mum said she'd get me a new computer then. The one I have now is practically dead. <xD it can't go online...and it'd glitch up like hell. 
Thanks for the link though! :la: I shall keep it in my data base!

What's with the weird faux-stereoscopic effect? It makes some things look seriously blurry.

Let's see, if I were to give a short critique on this the first thing I notice is the mouth. I can't really place what it is, but it seams a little off somehow. other than that I really don't have a problem with it at all. The lighting is nicely done, the moon in the background really adds to the dark feel behind it. The wings really look nice, it almost makes me jealous. Perhaps a little more cracks in the floor around her to show her angered strength? Just as a suggestion.

Great job.

Thanks for critique ^^

I'm also not sure what to look at on the mouth :I seems fine to me, maybe some sketch lines that I forgot to clean up, make it look weird.
And I agree that more details on the background would be nice, but I decided not to mess it up, I'm still learning how to work on backgrounds.

I'm glad that you like the drawing :3
