Not a Monster by karidyas Not a Monster by karidyas
After reading ~PenStrokePony's excellent Past Sins, specifically chapter 17, I was inspired to draw this.
This took an incredibly long time (for me anyway), but I definitely think it was worth it. I'm especially happy with the lighting and effects.
This is my first piece of fan-art for anything ever, so hopefully I can keep up the momentum.

[Edit] Changed the title as the original was awkward, and was placeholder anyway TBH. Thanks for the idea, PenStroke!

[Edit2] Added link to the story. Enjoy!

Thank you detective. My original thinking was that the ears would be under the helmet. My fault for not using enough reference, but this picture is like 2-3 years old now so its a bit late for edits haha

Wow, I love these sort of "Luna's internal struggle" pieces, and while I know Nyx and Luna are two different beings, it's still quite similar, isn't it?

Oh, and this is freaking awesome :iconmlpnyxplz:!

Thanks, I tried to make it ambiguous so people not so into Past Sins could enjoy it too : )
