Erebus, the Ancient Horror by endlessnostalgia Erebus, the Ancient Horror by endlessnostalgia
This is a fanart image made for :icondragryphon:, for her fanfic series which include: Solar Flare, What Could Have Been, and Deep Dark. You can find them all here: [link]

Here we see the Princesses of Equestria, Celestia and Luna join forces to fight an ancient evil called Erebus.

Any criticism for this image would be very welcome. This is my first large scale pony image (and with a full background - if a not very detailed one), and though it gave me some troubles, in the end I ended enjoying making it quite a lot.

Erebus :icondragryphon:
Celestia, Luna, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and all related characters are Hasbro.

*Edit: Fixed Celestia's ear (was in the wrong layer), moved Luna a bit, and made a number of small retouches to the background.

Also: The picture made it to Equestria Daily's Drawfriend! Yay!

Erebus must be the one behind the Nightmare Moon and Discord incidents.

i think the white light is see through, just look at Celestia.

Hmm. I see what you mean.

It's not really see through, though. it's just that the light effect mixes too much with Luna's color. I applied the same effect on Celestia, but I guess it doesn't work the same on every color.

Saw this on ED. Soon as I saw the thing in the middle I knew it was Erebus.

I really like how you drew luna, you did her very well :love:
the top right behind the mountains seems a little bare to me, just a thought

I think you're right, now that I retouched the picture I moved Luna a bit to compensate, I'm hoping now the image looks more balanced.
