You may not be familiar with this story, but I am strongly reminded of a scene from Steven Erickson's Malazon Book of the Fallen.

The wizard Quick Ben Travels to the bottom of the Abyss (an alternate plane/dimension) to meet Hairlock, a wizard who died an transferred his soul to a puppet. His time spent in that place shattered his sanity, from memory.

I guess if was the concept of depth that triggered the memory. I see the orange blobs in the foreground as fish swimming through a see, and the spiral in the centre reminded me of one of my sketches: fav.me/d80l9qo.

In any case, the painting has interesting elements that made it a powerful experience for me.

This is beautiful. My sister would love this. She loves The Nightmare Before Christmas. I think Twilight looks cute in her Star Swirl the Bearded costume and Luna is just all round beautiful in this.

Twilight is a little unclear, but I'm sure you did the best you could. Very good work. Quality MLP art with traditional media isn't something I see every day.

can just hear her singing "Oh there's an empty place inside of my soul that calls out for some praise and love, the fear and screams come year after year does nothing for these empty tears."

Luna really the best pony to use as Jack Skellington and I've seen at least four other casting choices.

I've seen Twilight, who'd work if Luna weren't just so well suited for the role
I've seen Pinkie
I've seen Rarity (that one had Spike as Sally, Twilight's had him as Jack's dog.)
I've even seen Rainbow Dash

Luna however works best as The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town or we could say, the Lunar Queen of Nightmare Night.
