South for the Winter by TurboSolid South for the Winter by TurboSolid
Wow. This is my 50th deviation! Anyway, I made this one for my good buddy :icondori-to: I helped him fulfill his dream of getting a plushy, and now he's helping me do the same. I'm trying to learn about using light and color in a realistic fashion. Also, sorry for not uploading much lately. I've been having a bit of an art block. Hopefully I can change that soon.
Took me about 4 1/2 hours (on and off).

Amazing piece! You are an amazing artist, I hope you know. :D
Vision: I absolutely love how the sun can be seen through the clouds, creating a very comforting effect against the rest of the sky. The lighting on Fluttershy and the way her eyes are brought out is rather soothing. Although, if she is in flight, the way the scarf is drooping seems a bit unrealistic, and her left wing appears to be missing.

Originality: I have never seen a piece like this. I love the idea! :D

Technique: I personally think that using the paintbrush was the perfect choice for this. Very........ soothing, as I said before.

Impact:This is the kind of piece that makes me wish I were a brony. So there. :D

Being a big fan of My Little Pony, I always love to see different interpretations of the wonderful characters in the series.

Especially Fluttershy, who I can definitely call my favourite! I love how you captured her "wide-eyed wonder" look with such depth and three dimentionality.

The colours made me think of marshmallow and cotton candy, and I truly love how you blended the clouds to make it look cold.

One thing that might need attention (although very little!!) though, is the consistancy in hair texture on the left and the right.

Last word: Well done! Your technique is beautiful and enchanting, creates the nostalgic feel. Hope you never stop creating!

Fluttershy, you can't leave for the winter. Who will take care of your animals?

:iconfluttershysqueeplz::iconsaysplz:Not my problem.

That's cold, Fluttershy.

Thanks ^_^ Looking back, I can find about 5 or 6 errors with Fluttershy.
This was more of a sky practice than anything.

I love this! The eyes slightly remind me of a Tim Burton cartoon or something (in a good way), and the overall feeling of this is amazing!

To tell you the truth, I had drawing ability, but never truly learned to apply myself until I started digital pony art.
I would sit in drawing class, not paying attention to what the teacher had to say. I had raw talent, yes, but I never developed skill. I could scan some of my old works, since some aren't that bad, but I'd rather focus on improving my current skills, and learning new ones :D
By the way, thanks for the critique ;)
