>>33426497>If you were to redesign Nyx, but kept with the design of her being loosely based on Nightmare Moon how would you do it?
I would at first make her into a blob of darkness that slowly takes the form of a filly by seeing the cutie mark crusaders, yet she still have the look of a mirage(similar to crystal ponies but more transparent), she can't be easily perceived and can only interact with ponies or creatures of high magical energies, ergo, only strong ponies or creatures can actually interact with her and touch her, otherwise she is as good as a ghost, she doesn't exist to most ponies.>if alicorn
only if she is filled with enough magic, it will trigger a transformation into a alicorn, otherwise she can just swap between earth, pegasus and unicorn.>if NMM eyes
only if she gets truly angry or feels hate torwards something or someone.
Would you keep the same Shield cutie mark to represent her desire to protect ponies, would you alter it or change it completely?
I would make it into a geminis and illusions reference, her cutiemark is mirror in the form of a shield alongside a pond, the cutie mark is truly special since anypony or anyone can see their reflection...but if you stare at it long enough the mirror will show your true self, you will see who you really are and lets say that most get disturbed at what they see.
nyx existance is completely uncertain and conditional, even though she is harmless, she sometimes really exist or sometimes she is no more than a mere illusion, only during a full moon she becomes real enough to exist like a normal pony, its sad but nyx only be seen in really dark places by normal ponies and she looks like a ghost even then.
