No, because Ra and Apep were never on the same side or allies

To tell you the truth, I knew the Egyptians had to have had a god of the moon if Ra was the god of the Sun, but I never knew its name was Khonsu. It honestly sounds like a Japanese sounding name to me, but if that's what the Egyptians call the god of the moon, I'll believe them.

Nice job on it nonetheless!

Apollo and Artemis, they are the sibling Sun and Moon pair. All Helios ever did was drive the chariot that had the sun as wheel. Even Then Apollo is the more important god as Helios so there is that.

At last! With her heavy eyeliner and royalty-god status I've long thought that Celestia needed a Pharaoh/Ra-comparison.

Great job! :D

I like how the sun is viciously burning while the moon gives off a calm glow. Maybe Celestia's side could have been brighter though, it looks like it's night on both sides.

Never heard about Khonsu before, I must admit. Is that an obscure god or another another name for a more well-known one?
