My darkest Night by aNIGHTLYpony My darkest Night by aNIGHTLYpony
hmm, it's not finished to me, it needs.....something.

"this is nightly in his younger days, he was a soldier of the lunar rebellion in the 1st equestran war against the changelings back then. luna, back then was sealed in the moon but her soldiers swore never to fight under Celestia's banner... on a cold winters night our hero lies exhausted in the snow with the sound of war trembling."

i'll change the snow texture maybe, and also lessen the moonlit glow effect. give me some tips plz?

Amazing job on this!
The eye is brilliantly done, the shading and hilights on the eye are placed exactly right. The combination of the mouth and the eye make for the perfect concentrated, yet sad expression. The white mane was drawn beautifully, it looks great on your pony. If I were to complain about something, it would be the snow. It really doesn't seem like snow. The gun is well drawn, too. You are a brilliant artist, keep it up! I the shading on the body of the pony is also done very well, and I love the slight glowing effect you did with the outline.
What do you think?

United, you will overcome. Divided, you will fall.
Lunar or Solar, it doesn't matter. We are all Equestrians.

Your darkest night... I would think of it as your blackest night. Yeah, I'm thinking DC when I saw this picture. Simply awesome and I like the dark parts in the picture.

I'd suggest to add a new color, maybe some yellow blink in the eye and the metallic part to entertain the eye.

And in this, my darkest hour, I have found peace. A light, at the end of the darkened tunnel.

Moonlight glow would look cool on this, and also maybe have him a little sunken in the snow, like snow a little on him. Other than that it's a great piece. <3

I love the expression, it transmitted the emotion you want to give.
All I see is that the texture pattern is separated. Try bending the edge of the draw with the background. It looks rough. Donīt be afraid to combined the draw with the background and paint it together.
