Dear Sister by I-am-knot Dear Sister by I-am-knot
It's been a while. I've had some real life stuff going on. And that may go on for a while. But hang in there, more art to come.

This is maybe not so much an actual depiction of the imprisonment of Nightmare Moon. But rather a symbolic one. To show the emotions involved. I was thinking of having Luna cry as well, seeing as she isn't just angry, she feels betrayed to. Might change that.

I love this! The emotions in their faces is brilliant! I really see the feeling in everything!

Celestia's sadness and regret at the whole thing and Nightmare Moon (Luna) screaming after her.

Incredible!

"You Dare keep me locked here, sister?!" Nightmare Moon thrashed around in her bindings as Celestia turned and began to walk away. "I HATE you, Tia!" She screamed, as a tear trailed down Celestia's cheek. "I'm sorry, Luna... Will you ever forgive me for this..?" -A broken princess

I can't even imagine the pain of both sides. Celestia must have flet like she was betraying her little sister. But it was for the best, maybe...

An amazing story, makes me wonder if Celestia does regret her decision. You did an outstanding job in the expressions

I like how you used an orange theme for Celestia instead of the white that is often used!

This reminds me of some mythological thing, I forgot what it was, where a person is chained to a rock and trying to escape.

I feel bad for both of them, but Luna did try to essentially wipe out all life on the planet because she felt under-appreciated so being imprisoned was necessary. For Celestia she had to seal away her beloved sister whom had come to hate her, being saddled with that kind of guilt could not be pleasant. As I said, I feel bad for both of the, but I only consider one an innocent in the proceedings.

The thing that really sticks out to me the most is the glow around both humans. Luna's facial expressions are awesome. It's the face that says deep seated rage.

the only negative thing i can say about this pic is Luna looks older than Celestia. Other than that this pic is epic!

:iconi-am-knot:
I-am-knot Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is true. But in my defense, I wanted her to look a bit warped, by having been turned into NMM. That might contribute to the older look.
Still good point. Thanks.

I was thinking it was because of NMM, so you did good job on that, but the idea of that isn't to clear. Not sure how one would fix it as your pic so awesome but i am glad i mighta been helpful in some way lol
