The shading in this picture is beautifully done!
I love how you added the collar around nightmare moons neck! It brings a different kind of side to the story of her be banished and the she's actually trap there on the moon. The little drawings in the moon are epic! Luna has to entertain herself somehow ^^ <3
The angle on the face is amazing. Yet I would've liked to see more angle on the body.
I SEE IT! I SEE THE WHEATLEY! OMG! HECK YEAH! THIS PICTURE IS PERFECT!
I feel like there can be more shading on the mane. It seems you stuck with one kind of darker shade then using three or four like you did with the body.
The world can be a little more detailed, maybe add some lights.
The timer on the collar is genious...I really like how you added that!
Your version of her banishment is epic! I love how shes patiently sitting there waiting to escape.
Great job :3

This is the first critique I've done in this format, so I hope it's alright..

First, this is one of the most beautiful depictions of Nightmare that I've seen.
The technique you've used with her mane, though somewhat simple, is absolutely wonderful.

For originality + impact I give a 4-4.5 because overall, it's Nightmare still stuck on the moon.
However.. you've drawn her in a unique way; showing a content smile on her face, knowing that she's about to be freed, rather than wicked and vengeful toward her sister.. Which is a very nice change.

Her lack of armor and the angle of her body also amplify the feeling. She's completely exposed here, but is looking up at the world, seemingly happy just to be going back.

The chain with a timer is also a nice touch, I've seen the whole "chained to the moon" thing before, but never like this. And the collar itself is rather elegant looking even though it doesn't seem to have much time spent on the individual sections of the chain.
(and the addition of the doodles and Wheatley are a funny/cute touch)

Personally, I think it might look better with a bit more detail in the sparkles of her mane, and the stars.. and maybe the links to the chain.

But other than those few things, this is a wonderful, breathtaking piece.
