Chaotic Nightmares by the-Orator Chaotic Nightmares by the-Orator
Even in a brightly colored world of Friendship
Evil still lurks.......

This was a design I created for the WeLoveFine MLP t-shirt competition
My goal was to create a opposing piece for my picture Harmony [link] which is bright with simplistic characters but very detailed backgrounds and symbols, representing the fact that harmony isn't about oneself but about others and learning to understand and coexist with them
While this piece is dark, detailed characters and simple in its symbols, representing that the goals of these two villains was very self-interested, wanting to push want they wanted on the world rather trying to help it

I want to give it a background but I haven't come up with one I like yet :/

Also the artwork style here was inspired by CrappyUnicorn (one of my favorite MLP artists!)

I love Nightmare's look with the complete black. She seems EVIL... like, beyond what she already was.

Perfect pair and I mean both works.

Meaning and drawing are just perfectly explained, and I thinks that the "no background" is ok, it make it more centered on this two (NM and Discord), but yet, it certainly looks plain in comparison with is counterpart... man I hate to say things like this when I can't even draw.

Anyway, nice piece, very good indeed.

Is it bad that I can hear Discords voice?

what once was light now is a blight
What once was fun has all been undone
What once was joy now is unrest
Those who were friends are now enemies at best!
As sisters quarrel over moon and sun
I will fight to continue my fun.

Even in the brightest world, evil still lurks.
For without Darkness, Light is meaningless.
What is Good, if there is no Evil for it to struggle against?

This piece is rather good as is. :icontwilightclapplz:

I love this!
The link to Harmony isn't working but I love it too! [link]

After reading the comments about NMM vs Discord, it occurs to me that it would probably make more sense for this to be an adult Luna here instead but I still love this concept and it's gorgeous. It definitely mirrors the Harmony picture very well!

This piece doesn't work so well for me. This picture implies that the two are villains of equal stature, but my headcanon asserts that Nightmare Moon was actually a product of Discord's brainwashing. At best, NM would be Discord's most powerful minion.

I'm skeptical as to the Nightmare Moon being the fault of Discord theory, simply due to the fact that Discord was turned to stone before the NMM incident happened and also that we don't know how much time lapsed between the two events

I dunno, I'd rather wait until canon either confirms it or stats what happened
All I know is that Lauren Faust said that there was a darker force at hand behind Nightmare Moon
