this is a great piece that you have made here! i love it because it has alot of style and originalty. I enjoy the fact that she is planting or tending to a rose, it adds to the "roseyness" of the picture. I Must ask you to make way more of these pieces they are B-E-A-UTIFUL! oh and im suppossed to write 100 words so this is just a diversion so i can get 100 words in this critique! it only has a 100 word minimum so sorry your having to read this. but i truley love this piece. good job

Wow, this is really awesome! This is my first time critiquing, so give me some slack if I mess up.

LET'S GO.

Vision: The eye is drawn towards the head and face of Roseluck, a result of the fact that the mane and eye are very bright. This gives the piece a center, and makes it feel balanced. However, I gave you only three and a half stars: as a whole I feel as though visually the piece is a bit boring. It lacks a background or asymmetrical layout which would give an element of interest; it's just the subject centered on the canvas. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it has nothing positive going for it in that respect. Besides that, however, Roseluck is very colorful and the lighting is vibrant, drawing and holding the eye.

Originality: As much as I love this picture, I feel as though the originality of this is lacking. It's a drawing of a pony and not much else. However, massive props to you for not making her just standing there, but interacting with a rose - fulfilling the Roseluck theme - in the middle of gardening. This makes for an interesting premise for the picture, and for that I gave it three stars.

Technique: This is where you really excel. I can't stop looking at the mane, the eyes, the shadow; it's such a perfect balance of realistic and stylized. You did an amazing job of keeping her solid without making her seem chiseled out of stone, and her mane, while not seeming overly glossy or overly realistic, has body and life. The little things, such as the shadow behind her or the shadow of the stem on her hoof or the way the shadows on her chest and leg have pale reflections of her environment - yeah, I just really love the shadows on this, okay?? - give it a three-dimensional level I think many artists on this site miss. I applaud you. (Four and a half stars because five would be reserved for, I don't know, Leonardo da Vinci or something. You came pretty darn close.)

Impact: I think this section's for, I don't know, the review as the whole or something? That's what I'll treat it as. The piece as a whole is balanced but lacking interest, almost bland. However, it is saved by the vibrancy of the colors and the technique of the pony itself. You used lighting in such a way that the pony feels as though it has body and mass, but it still retains the spirit of MLP:FiM as opposed to being photoreal. Four stars overall.

(Additional things that I don't feel like going back and adding in: I love the shape of the mane, and the way that the dirt under her hooves is just a small pile. Also the rose is good. Okay, that's about all.)

Here's to Roseluck!

Say, would you like to join a contest I'm hosting? There's a category for drawing in MLP style and I'd love to see you try it out. =P

Такое чувство что она себе вилкой в щеку попала, сделал бы зубцы с другой стороны. И переднее левое копыто ооочень странное. Но картинка хороша.
