Solar Flare by Sorelstrasz Solar Flare by Sorelstrasz
Behold, the envoy of the end: Nightmare Celestia, or in my case, Solar Flare.

Edit: Now updated!

You know, after 1000 years in the sun, you probably won't come back looking the same...

Had some great help with my watchers getting her nailed down visually. I think we all can agree the turnout was worth waiting for. I plan on making a background for this, but in the mean time, have the vector. Took about a week to finish, so I'm glad it's out of the way finally.

Lots of layer detailing, especially the legs. Since I haven't seen any vector showing lava, I took my own path with how it should look. Hopefully it looks realistic, but within the MLP style. :)

What a great way to celebrate 30,000 pageviews!!!!

First I will start by saying it is absolutely beautiful, and I love it. If I had to pick one thing I would change it would be the way the legs end. The lave melt is a good idea but maybe if it wasn't quite so thick. It kind of makes it look like she is attached to the ground and can't walk. That is the only thing I can see that I would maybe alter a bit. I also love the way you did the wings. It is very well drawn, and goes perfect with the MLP Style. The cutie mark is awsome!

Oh sweet merciful Celestia, wait, no longer applicable.
The style fits in with the show perfectly and is what their representation of infernal beings SHOULD be (Looking at YOU, Equestria Girls)
And what's more, it tells a story, you feel like this character has gone over the deep end and is about to go old testament on whatever pathetic mortal crosses her path. It makes me want to see what invoked this transformation from stoic and pure Celestia to demonic Solar Flare. And I love the Lava design, it just makes her look more inhuman (in-pony?), and shows even more of a downfall than Nightmare Moon, as NM was still a pony, whereas SF is more of an Elemental now, an embodiment of rage, almost.
I may be a bit biased, as I love villains and cool designs, but, by God, this is just awesome.

Psycho feels sadness in seeing Tia-Tia like this, but this isn't his world, so he has no influence.

Terrifyingly, much better than Nightmare Moon, instead of Eternal Night, she will burn the world to ashes and start anew, like a phoenix reborn!

I don't know about a kaboom. I always saw her turning the sun into a red giant that would engulf the planet into its fiery mass. Nothing survives. At all.

Except Discord, the guy can survive pretty much anything. And Pinkie Pie, because Pinkie.
