The duo of epic proportions joined forces in taking over Equestria! Wahahahaha!!!
Twilight better be running off now from Trixie... "My precious Twilight...Tee~hee!"
*Ehem*, so I was saying. I first noticed Trixie in this composition, although Queen Lu... Oops! Princess Luna was supposedly the center of attention, Trixie stole the lime light with her unique blend of black and yellow colors.
And lets not forget the hair, the background served as the launching platform to contrast that hair!
And now to Queen Lu... PRINCESS Luna!
She has a sexier flank, hehe! And her signature eyes are what makes her alluringly attractive. *double emphasis*
Her hair, although most would dismiss the importance of hair behavior and just wave their pencils everywhere...
You, have meticulously adjusted the position where it shows its immensity and mystery. Thumbs up!
And the anatomy is spot on! Having two ponies stand by each other is a challenge to some, and I believe you first drew Trixie or Luna, vice versa!
And the whole art piece? I'd like to bid $99 on it please!
Princess Luna: [in Nightmare Moon disguise] "Just imagine the looks on their faces, my dear trickster, when they see us, believing that Nightmare Moon hath returned in the flesh and thou hath became my loyal, evil sorceress minion! Tis' be the prank of the ages! We cannot think of a better way to announce your new royal apprenticeship to Equestria in more spectacular a fashion."
Trixie Lulamoon: "Your highness, Trix - I mean I must admit that is ingenious! You sure are devious even when you're not Nightmare Moon!"
Oddly enough, I had the same idea with my MLP:FiM/Sailor Moon mash-up fanfic where Nightmare Moon take in Trixie as her subordinate and student to use against the Mane Six. So yeah, you ain't the only one.
I like MLP: FiM, but I don't love it. I think I would have loved it if Luna hadn't been defanged in the pilot, and that the adventures/action revolved around Sailor Moon-esque battles to take Luna down. Trixie would be total frosting on this fighting ponies cake.
They wait silently in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike, one abused by her sister, the others life ruined by celestia's apprintance. Together they set back and wait...until their moment comes.
The art is true to the show the colors are vibrant and radiant enough The background was clearly made so Trixie stands out plus she has yellow & gold colors on her hat and cloak The stars actually help Trixie shine more than NMM
Why people love Trixie so much is because of the visuals, not the personality or voice from the actual show Her white+Light blue mane & tail maker her lovevable she's got the color blue, and same color eyes as Twilight plus she was the first character to appear with a hat and cloack which boosts the visual likeness by a notch
Same for Luna visually, her mane is what people enjoy when drawing her, it stands out
Now about the whole Trixie V.S. Twilight
Don't get me wrong i'd enjoy some more action scenes in FIM
But it's pretty clicheic to return a character just to turn it into a villain
Also there's the slight risk that people might stop comparing My Little Pony to the older generations and start comparing FIM with actual other good shows and thus the whole effect of ''my expectations got lowered soo much from the old generations that anything which might seem decent, (which actually gets featured daily in other shows), just because it's in My Little Pony instantly gets AWESOME'' One of action man's cartoons has an explosion, Meh it's action man... My Little Pony has an explosion, OMG MY LITTLE PONY JUST GOT AWESOME
yYeeh...you can see where i'm going... there's this chance that explosions and good stuff in My Little Pony won't be over-praised anymore if it actually gets featured constantly... Now if they do keep it subtle, with subtle action scenes and once in a while like Scotaloo's scooter ride, then people won't compare this show to others
There's one thing which i left out completely, and other shows lack, which i have this fright that it might be overshadowed by the action but feel free to tell me that i'm wrong and FIM would get even more popular if it had more action scenes in it (i hope i'm wrong)
Nopony verified that Nightmare Moon really was defeated. She can merely possess somepony else or be banished from Luna's body and be a spirit.
Trixie was never defeated. She was unable to vanguish Ursa Minor and was forsed to admit her lie. But even after that she' was not defeated. She merely walked away. Never apologized, never cried. I bet she performed in another sity in no time.
Trixie however I agree, it seems many people seem to think her life was ruined and that she'll never be able to perform again, I don't know why, such things have never stopped frauds here.
But I still go for Gilda, when met with adversity she just got madder. NMM did utterly stupid things (A thorn in a paw? Not even going to hurl lightening at them?) she's practically impotent. Gilda I suspect would know how to use such power to actually injure ponies.
I don't think Luna is NMM. I think NMM is THIRD goddess, born thousand years ago from Luna's despair and loneliness. Goddess without body, but with very strong magical powers and ability to posess others. So - Shadowbolts were her answer to Wonderbolts (I don't think WB is ONLY one group of good fliers, we just saw only them in show). She was forced out of Luna, but she just transformed into 'living shadow-cloud-thing' and retreated... untill season 2.
I don't think NMM was stupid, even if she done stupid things (thorn, lawl). Firstly, she has very little magic (all used to survive 1000 years in vacuum without food) and she kinda (okay, a lot) crazy after 1000 years of loneliness. So she was able to create some plan and used illusions and small physical transformations to psychologically attack and scare ponies. Not worked. But - she not dead, she has plenty of time and let her just regain her powers...
I really would like to see confirmation of NMM not being Luna, plenty of people say it, but as far as I can tell it's just made up and cannon says they're the same entity.
If she had so little magic, why is she such a threat? Why did Celestia vanish when she returned? I'll go with the crazy though, or possibly that it was Luna the whole time; she didn't attack anypony (Except for knocking a few guards back) and deliberately set up the mane six in trials that would reveal their element and bring everyone together. In fact, I think Luna had it all planned out on the moon, come back, get 'cleaned' by the elements and get welcomed back. It'd be a great way of getting everypony on her side, much better and less suspicious than 'I'm sorry now and won't do anything, I promise.'
And powers? Pffft! What will she do, fog us to death? All anypony would have to do is introduce her to one of the *real* monsters that live in Equestria, one hydra or ursa major and she's so much black confetti.
And what kind of plan is eternal night anyway? Everypony would hate it, then starve to death. If'n it was me I'd stop the night, lets see how much ponies love the sun when the droughts kick in and they haven't slept for a month, oh yes!
I want to see a story like that, it'd ruin the weather patterns, (Would it be summer all year round?) and make the air hot and stuffy, not to mention how most things can't live two weeks without sleep...
