I really like Night Mare Moon right now...not sure how she suddenly jumped up so far on my favorite pony list. But whatever. Felt like seeing what she was like with a bit of a smile.
Anyway, I was feeling a little discouraged because I hadn't quite found the happy medium between the stylization in the TV show and the way my brain wants to render things. I feel better after drawing this, and hopefully I'll feel more comfortable drawing going forward.
