1000 Years of Torment by Heilos 1000 Years of Torment by Heilos
Man I haven't painted anything like this in such a long time.
Felt pretty good and i'm quite happy with how it turned out
for not being that familiar with paint tool sai other then simple
flat shading usually.

I'm just going to copy paste what I said on the original sketch
to show my thought process behind this:

Since we're getting a bit more Luna in season 2, which is awesome,
I kind of thought of her personal turmoil she probably has, being
trapped in the moon for like 1000 years after all. I see her as having
hallucinations or nightmares (no pun intended) about nightmare moon
which are just manifestations of guilt. I could see an episode clearly
showing this and her having to somehow over come and confront her
fears with the help of the main cast or at least twilight, I dunno lol

Other then some kind of internal battle, I have no idea what's going
on here, I just wanted to paint some pretty ponies lol. Your free to
interpret this however you want haha.

It never even occurred to me that there would ever be an episode like that, but I always suspected that Luna was still hurting a lot because of the Nightmare Moon thing, and I can really relate to her feelings in that episode, so I absolutely love it! I even bought the episode on Google Play so I can watch it whenever and wherever I want!

Man, Luna's my favorite. She's rather deep I suppose if you want to imagine it. I've always wondered what it would've been like to be in her position. To know what is canon for what happened 1000 years ago. How hard it was to adapt back to society, etc. I love the way this is arranged, the art really conveys the inner turmoil that I'm sure she must've been feeling while on the moon for 1000 years.
