Mitternacht by MysteriousKaos Mitternacht by MysteriousKaos
Well this one took some time to make, if you ever ask, the idea came after Halloween, why? I really don't know, I son't believe a season or occasion should be a factor in what I do or make, I just make what I feel that needs to be made pretty much. Most of this was finished 3 weeks ago but essentials weren't finished until today.

I appreciate :iconanbolanos91: for sharing some ideas, I wanted to add fog and effects and he gave me some guidance, although the fog I made at the end is original of mine.

The gravestones have the cutie mark of Celestia and Luna, I don't know what is the "faith or creed" in Equestria, but crosses wouldn't cut it out really in that world.

I wanted to create something worthy of a horror/terror fic, so here it goes, this should give some people some ideas now.

the figure in the middle is indeed Nightmare Moon, the queen of the night, not a pretty sight for any pony at midnight.

The title is German for "midnight," in case anyone wonders.

I dedicate this one to :iconnight-ferocity:, for her inspiring art.

Reminds me of this: [link] or this: [link]
One of the two, same person.
Speaking of E-Nomine and disregarding the title.. the picture itself strongly reminds me of their song Das Tier in Mir.
I am a creature of the night hunting under the moon until the morning rises.
That song was stuck in my head forever... @_@
[link] Immediately what this made me think of.

Oh wow, I am glad that all my references I used for this were found, that was the last part of the puzzle, I am impressed, Lol
Need to find 6/6 elements before Slendermare gets ya!
Lovely image indeed! :love:
The gravestones I believe are marked with the cutie mark of the pony resting underneath. But don't take my word for it.
As for the "faith" in Equestria, I don't think there is one. If your god is real, you don't need religion (and vice versa).
The title made me think of a song, too; Only for me it was Mitternachts-Tango (Tanze mit Mir in den Morgen).
Maybe not as fitting as the other one, I can't really say since I haven't heard it. Perhaps Das Nachtgespenst would be a better match?
Wouldn't the moon be empty if Nightmare Moon's free?
