A Quiet Eternal Night at Home by lunarapologist A Quiet Eternal Night at Home by lunarapologist
REPOSTING THIS - lineart is mine (original lines: [link]), but ALL COLORS were done by :iconlittlelion-man:, who has since closed her account and removed all works. :(

If she comes back, I will take this down - since at this point, it's really more her work than mine.

A request for :iconkeinzantezuken:

Night Mare Moon in pajamas?`Well, at least she's not wearing bunny slippers... yet. :)

Wonderful piece, though; even if you only did the lineart (not that there's anything "only" about it), you deserve a lot of credit for it. I obviously really like the coloring job, the glow fo the candles' flames, her shimmering blue mane and tail and magic, the reflections in her eyes and all that, but - without a solid foundation, ~littlelion-man couldn't have pulled it all off, so props to you for a job well done, too!

One of my favourite fanart of NMM. If she would come back, I don't thing she would go all "THE NIGHT WILL LAST FOREVER!" thingy again, because that's what Luna wanted, NMM just hosted her jealousy and emotions in her body. So when she got rainbow'd by the elements, she got separated from the emotions. And if she would come back, she would probably enjoy the night with a glass of wine and a good book. like you drawn it. Well, at least in my headcanon.

I love the mood and idea of your image combined with Littlelion-Man's outstanding shading and colours - so much that I simply had to turn it into my desktop wallpaper. In fact, I'm actually wondering about giving a try at turning the original lineart into a show-wise hi-res image (not a vector because I'm not working on actual vectors). Will I have your permission to do so? I'm not promising that I will actually do it (I'm unpredictable and usually lazy), but I thought that it's better to ask beforehand instead of my usual habit of doing something and THEN asking for a permission.

BTW, I can see one mistake that's present both in lineart and coloured versions: the glass of wine is askew.

Sorry I didn't get back to you on this earlier!

So long as you give credit, I'm totally fine with that :) (Also, I'd like to see it if you get it done!)

And yeah, perspective and lining things up just right aren't really my strong suit. It's something I know I need to work on :\
