MLP - Peanut Bucker by AylaStarDragon MLP - Peanut Bucker by AylaStarDragon
Well, it's not one of the characters from the show.

This is Ohio's official pony, and Trotcon's mascot.

I wanted to draw her since I'm trying to get in as one of the artists. :3

I see you've got the "flowing mane" thing down pat.

Having the light come in from behind her was a great idea.

I suck at critiquing. I'm just gonna fav this and let the peeps that know the terminology praise this piece with their fancy talk.

Wow. That's extremely well done. Is that really airbrushed? Some people just have amazing talent.

It's all digital. I chose digital painting and airbrushing because it's fully shaded. ^^

Thank you. :3

That's a beautiful filly, contentedly flying along like the autumn breeze and enjoying nature (while running off some leaves a bit early perhaps). I love that pretty freckled face and huge, wonder-filled eyes, plus you did a terrific job making her leaping gallop flow as freely and enchantingly as the breeze itself. With the bright fade at the top you made sure our eyes are always drawn back to her, but no matter how I "adjust the contrast" (move up and down relative to my LCD screen) or adjust the histograms I can't tell if the trail is covered or open above. There just seems to be a lot of light coming from everywhere, though I have to admit that it gives her great definition without making her too dark by contrast. (Offsetting with the shadowy bottom-right plus underneath her does balance things out fairly well.) And the "dabs" with the closer tree, speckles of light, and then the freed leaves themselves, it's all gorgeous. The foreshortening and rounded perspective do a great job to convey the sense of speed and distance.

Anyway, she's a beautiful young mare and you've made her exceptionally dynamic and expressive while giving the scene some context. I certainly hope you're accepted into the group. They'd be lucky to have you.

Wow, thank you for such a thorough critique. :D

You've caught everything I was going for here. ^^ I tried to make this as free-feeling as possible in the mood.

o.o so much glow, so much light It's gorgeous! I love the way it reflects off this pony in her mane and tail and body. This is simply breathtaking.

Anyway, this is really well done.

Wow, job VERY well done. The one and only criticism that I have for this is that the trees in the background all melt together into a vast expanse of nothingness. A simple shadow-outline separating the trees from one another would go a long way toward solidifying the background.

That aside, my jaw is getting swore from hitting the floor with all of this art you're uploading!

Hmm, I guess I could tweak it a bit today. See if it looks good.
Esteempunk Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It isnt the end of the world that the blank space is there. It gives the feeling of sunlight coming through the trees. Again, I just think that it would be a slight detail change that could go a long way toward making this all the better.

You know how I can be with my nit-picking ;P
