Gray wastes of soul by grayma1k Gray wastes of soul by grayma1k
Wastes of the soul, passion of a banished one. Fallen goddess, the one who can scorch the Moon and imprint her own image in its ruin, but unable to create.

---

There are no laws against experimenting on fallen gods. Luna had nothing against it either. But this eye will still be chasing me in my nightmares, I afraid, for I made it wrong.

That strange thing I caught in my eye seeing this drawing... Oh, it's nothing, it just made me cry a little.

Indeed. And also sad and empty and gray.

I really like it, very simple with a big impact. I like the damage to her helm, and her eye being more wide in possible realization rather than in the anger or twisted pleasure of her evil. It is a very nice work.

-Words inspired by this-
These eyes, only gaze on the barren wastes of my path.
This landscape of my fate, is this all I have now or what I will come back from?
In sweet bitter time, return shale I to complete my work...
And these tears shedding from a weak soul, will pool in the sea of those foals!

Thanks!

The picture was really a sublimation, a substitute for another image that knocked on my mind around that time. The one about the burning Moon - even rocks and vacuum may flame up in a fruitless rage of a fallen god. And the Moon burned, and the nights were red quite some time after the banishment, and the result - scorched silouette, silent reminder and silent menace - could be seen for a thousand years more.

That should be a bright, and colorful, and disturbing, uneasy picture - the one I did not want to make, really (and don't want to still - you should feel her rage and anger to properly depict it, and I don't want to). It just knocked on the mind, and I had to make just anything related to release myself from this obsession. And now I am free from Moon and NMM images for some time, and may calmly draw peaceful and quiet Luna pictures, as I like them much more.
Heh.

Sounds like it would have been amazing though, but I m more of a darker side type. Luna I like to be happy or a bit mysterious into the gothic, but Nightmare Moon I love seeing in pure darkness. Nightmare moon was the first one I drew of the ponies, and hasn't stopped since. Ponies any ways.
