Not afraid of the dark by grayma1k Not afraid of the dark by grayma1k

Not a fan of NMM.
Not in the slightest.
Fallen gods are, well, fallen.
But sometimes drawing her is just much simpler than properly doing Celestia.
That's a pity.

I'm not much of a NMM fan either. As you say, she's fallen, but do find her somewhat sympathetic. She fell into evil out of loneliness, of all things, and for her punishment she was utterly isolated.

As a friend of mine put it, "You want the Mane Six to stop her, but you don't want them to kill her." Even though she's evil, NMM is tragic.

Also, this is another stunning drawing. I love how the starry darkness of her mane and tail looks like a galaxy seen through the earth somehow.

Well yes. Motives of her fall, of reasons and feelings behind it are frequent guests in my drawings, and they are understandable, and familiar, and sympathetic to me, as I often feel myself in a somewhat similar way. Motives and reasons, and return and restoration - yes, but not the downfall itself.
For me, all this story is just one big, grave mistake, wrong answer for a wrong question, and just too sad. And NMM herself, as a personalization of anger and hatred and despair reborn into aggression - just too alien to me. While tragic indeed, and understandable - but not sympathetic. Like something you may accept and forgive and understand - but not justify.

Thanks for your comment, glad you like the artwork.
