Nyx's Birthday by sgtgarand Nyx's Birthday by sgtgarand
It's been a year since Nyx was 'born' by the resurrection spell and Twilight finding her in the Everfree forest. So, it's time for Nyx's first official birthday party. It's not a big Pinkie Pie party, but instead, a nice quiet party to celebrate with those dearest to her.

------------

Numbers Game:
-7 hours to complete

*First wallpaper sized image that I've drawn*


Twilight's facial expression was inspired by one of :icontakua770: 's vectors.
And :icondreatos: for the concept drawing of Nyx

The fanfic can be found here: Past Sins

Came to mind this kind of dialogue.^^

Nyx: Wha... this is... to me?

Spike: Yeah, you're already six years old^^

Twilight: Happy birthday, dear.

Nyx: Oh, thank you mom, and thanks you Spike *blows out the candles*

You'd really have to read 'Past Sins,' that should be linked in the description, to really get to know who the character is.

But, the short version is that she was created from a resurrection spell that was meant to bring back Nightmare Moon as a separate entity from Luna. But the spell was interrupted and the product was a filly with the physical traits of Nightmare Moon, except she didn't have the same personality as NMM. Twilight ends up finding her and names the filly Nyx based on a black coated character from one of her story books.

hmmm, comparing their heights and such, id say it be more than a year, three, maybe 4 would be more fitting. Great artwork anyway. This deserves praise.

I love the feel that this could be a screencap from the actual show (just needs to be widescreen and have the 'hub' emblem at the bottom) nicely done I wish I can read the story but Google Doc doesn't work well for me, it always freezes up or it causes the browser to stop responding) Nyx is a very lovable character in herself shes this sweet little thing that was created by the reminence of an evil entity of Nightmare Moon, and I just love it.

Thanks :)
I do try to keep it true to the show's style, while also adding my own touch to it. But for someone to tell me it looks like it could be from the actual show is a huge compliment to me since I don't work with vectors.

And its too bad Google Doc does that. Have you tried different browsers? I know about a week or so ago I saw that it was here on dA, I just don't remember where.

I always enjoyed the smaller parties with my family.

If not it's usually under 10 people at home with beers and a BBQ.

The idea was that she was standing on a book or two in a chair, similar to the scene with Rarity in her boutique. Just wasn't able to fit that in the pic because I wanted it to focus more on her and the cake. As far as her actual age, that seems pretty vague since she was created from the interrupted spell. So I just feel she's the same as the cutie mark crusaders :)

Nyx wasn't "born" in the traditional sense, but we can still have a birthday. We'll celebrate the day Twilight found her in the woods. Or the day the cultists created her from the old shards of Nightmare Moon! I like that one best.
