This was... difficult. And I'm still not happy with how it looks. Nightmare Moon is a pain in the flank to draw.

Don't use this unless you requested it (and you didn't).

I like the style and the texture of the colors, it definitely sends a solemn night feel without being too dark or muddied.

however I feel that the characters around Canterlot blends into the lines and colors of the buildings. Only Discord, with his large size and his distance from the buildings was well pronounced and caught my eye immediately. I wish you made more use of the empty space to the left, or balanced it out with what's happening to the right.

I found Chrysalis and Nightmare moon last, because they camouflaged with the background. I had to scan the picture 2 more times to make sure i didn't miss anything. Chrysalis looks really messy, the other four was well drawn and their features shown.

it's very good all in all, keep it up

Don't mind the occasional (OK, constant) villain attacks!

Seriously, Canterlot's getting to be like Tokyo in the Toho-verse or Manhattan in the Marvel Universe!

finishing your note
Beautiful work. I love it how you included the elements at the top of the towers. Very nice touch.

Agree with yuji, looks like it took a tremendous amount of effort, but it was effort well worth it. Really amazing end result.

Thank you!

It did take a long time, though I spent most of it on the castle itself.

Getting noticed...?

Yeah, this took at least 4 hours to put together. It was supposed to include the entire Mane 6 and the 3 Princesses, but I really didn't have the time/space to stick 'em in...

But thank you! <3 I spent like hours and hours on the castle. Never again. I swear.
