Did you not see the signs? by I-am-knot Did you not see the signs? by I-am-knot
Okay, first of, if you haven't seen Antony C :iconantonyc: and BronyCurious :icontommyoliverdraws: review of A Canterlot Wedding already, go and do so now.
Here, I'll even give you the link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=y36UT2…

This piece is basically the thing they say right at the end. Now to those who wish to debunk this headcanon...Why? Why not let people enjoy different views?

Thirdly. (Wow a lot of writing this time.) I have been planning on making this piece for quite some time now. And I kind of put it off because I knew it would be quite time consuming. But after watching ziom05's :iconziom05: art. And completely imploding due to his awesomeness. I just had to get it done. His art really inspired me.

And lastly, click download if you want to see this in it's original size. I hope you enjoy it!

and I plan on printing it and using this picture as a massive poster! :D also I intend to show that video to Hasbro and convince them to make this, to make Luna as she truly is, but without any of that kid crap that makes you frown, something that only a competent mind can understand, mystery, hidden meanings, a larger picture, not just them saying it's a mystery and showing it, but where they don't know at all and only at the end does it all fall into place, even the viewers wouldn't see it until the last minute

Dont think it's true. But the most possible twist of action, could be that she had trapped Luna, and turned into her after that....Thats why she was absent when Chrysalis came...maybe...
Great art, though

THIS WAS A SUCH A SHOCKER,HASBRO IS A SMART ASS.LIKE SRSLY ITS SO TRUE.but as to say,it surprises me,the comic (nightmare rarity) henses the it was the NIGHTMARE FORCES that turned luna into nightmare moon and rarity into nightmare rarity,unless the forces were created or where chrysalis that headcannon was wrong.

I don't count the comics as canon. They might be, but since I don't read them, I don't count them.

Seriously this is making my head spin.  It pains me to think that i might not get to be as good as this.  I HATE MY ENEMY INSIDE!!!!  I WANNA KILL IT TILL ITS DEAD!!!!!!  (Yeah, that was from Achmed the Dead Terrorist.)  I wanna learn the techniques for this kind of art so badly!!!  This blows everything out of the water.  It's amazing.

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to convince the world She didn't exist.

But are the changelings actually changelings, or bat ponies in disguise, or something else entirely...?

Mother of god. If it is true that you got inspired by my works, at least a little, I feel honored about that.  :) I very enjoying this image. I like MLP artworks, which are serious and have a story to tell to viewers. And I see the good story.

- My artist's critique is about her pony wing with feathers. It is cool idea to show her both different wings, but I think her wing looks flat and unnatural. It is hard for me to explain, how it should looks to be correct. Maybe something like this: th03.deviantart.net/fs20/PRE/i…

- Also, in my opinion the eyes are focusing the most on a window ( or hole? or sky? ) in the centre. Not sure is it bad or good ( because you may wanted to put her in the shadows ), but I think the character looses her importantce.

I hope I have helped you a bit. It is good to see cool art. I wish you the best. :)

I took huge amounts of inspiration from you. Your art is absolutely brilliant! I especially got inspiration from your Trixie piece, the one with Snips and Snails.
And thanks a ton for taking some time to write feedback, it helps a lot!

Stay cool, buddy!

Drone: Um, my Queen?
Chrysalis: Yes? What is it?
Drone: Just, um... this plan, Plan B, is way better than Plan A was.
Chrysalis: Yes, I know that.
Drone: Then... why did you try for Cadence the first time?
Chrysalis: A GIRL CAN DREAM, CAN'T SHE?
Drone: ... dream of enslaving Equestria?
Chrysalis: (sighs) Yes, that too...

Actually, plan A was way back in season 2 when she was disguised as Derpy. But that was a complete failure.

There is only one was to kill an Alicorn. You have to make it eat itself to death with nothing but raisin icecream. No easy feat. But if we work together...Wait, I don't want to kill Luna! Forget what I just said, you heard and saw nothing!
