Alternate Ending by Cannibalus Alternate Ending by Cannibalus
Just a spontaneous idea. Tried to get as gloomy as I could get.

Time-Lapse video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4rKYf…

Also I decided to pick a soundtrack to that picture and I think the "Nine faces" by "Towards Darkness" will add some athmosphere. Enjoy^^ www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmmiDi…

Alternate Ending by Cannibalus is a wonderfully dark and moody piece that utilizes light and shadow for a dramatic effect. ( Suggested by RTNightmare and Featured by TsaoShin )

This is frightening good. Usually i can't take "pony's with weapons" serious... but here it works. Damn. Kinda looks like you carved a form, poured color and iron into it and put it in a furnace... - it blends all so well into one another, like it was made in one go... - really helps the dark atmosphere :3

 I've recently been re-reading Past Sins whilst on holiday this weekend, and when I got to the part where Nyx transforms into Nightmare Moon, and later on attacks both Celestia and Luna with her magical sword, I couldn't help thinking of this painting... My mind always wandered back to it somehow.

This looks amazing! and I myself am not into ponies ( I mean they're everywhere and its fanbase gives me the creeps). But I even recognize the dark and medieval fantasy tone out of this very immersive illustration  Oops!

"I will blot out the sun and cloak the world in the black silence. I will shatter the Elements of Harmony and stand above the broken corpses of their wielders. I will destroy the fool I once shared a vessel with and the wretch that she calls a sister, and take my rightful place as the sole sovereign of Equestria.
"I am the final problem, the unsolvable problem. I am darkness, within and without. I am Nightmare Moon. And I will have my ultimate vengeance."

And then one part of the world froze to ice while the other part became an overheated husk from the lack of planet's rotation. Everyone died and Nightmare Moon lived forever alone in agony. The End.

They came with the first light of dawn
Setting their sights on Dundee
Led by the sorcerer Zargothrax
Slaying all people he sees
They ride to war on once noble beasts
Corrupted by wizard spell
The unicorns used to be good
Now they are forced to serve hell

Down from the mountains
And across the river Tay
An army of undead unicorns
Are riding into the fray

Fireballs and lightning are raining from the sky
Chaos and bloodshed while all the people die
In this epic battle begins the final war
Tragedy will strike this day, prepare thee for
The unicorn invasion of Dundee

The townspeople had little hope
They were not ready for war
Fireballs make everybody die
And buildings collapse to the floor
The beautiful princess was raped
And taken to prison with cry
Angus McFife swears a mighty oath
"I will make Zargothrax die!"

The forces of darkness
Are invading proud Dundee
There must find a hero
To save its destiny

Fireballs and lightning are raining from the sky
Chaos and bloodshed while all the people die
In this epic battle begins the final war
Tragedy will strike this day, prepare thee for
The unicorn invasion of Dundee

Down from the mountains
And across the river Tay
An army of undead unicorns
Are riding into the fray

Fireballs and lighting are raining from the sky
Chaos and bloodshed while all the people die

Fireballs and lightning are raining from the sky
Chaos and bloodshed while all the people die
In this epic battle begins the final war
Tragedy will strike this day, prepare thee for
The unicorn invasion of Dundee

The unicorn invasion of Dundee-Gloryhammer

Gloryhammer is what happens when Sabaton and Powerwolf band members hang out and play Dungeons and Dragons together.
My little sister adores them.
