Those facial expressions on that cover are just priceless.
I should really start checking out the comics.

No ripple effect on the falling star, as such it's about to obliterate Luna?

That was indeed a mistake, but not the one I am referring to.

I thought for a second that you included the mare in the moon, but I don't think that's the case. Something looks off about the galaxy?

Aiight.

I ussually don't comment on the colored horse pictures, but I really like doing space art so Imma say some stuf



So First off obviously the moon and space stuff are at an age that is visually confusing with the water effects you are trying to have going one. But whats is also possibly at a weird angle is the ripples in the water, if they are ripples. The ripples are at an angle and ar a color that make me think that they are clouds being illuminated by the moon, and at that angle it looks like the boat is kind of sitting in jello. That fish dying a stationary death.

Next the space part, so I see you tried to portray a very large collection of stars and tried to erase the middle to give a milky way kinda feel I think a more smaller condenced sett of stars fading into the night sky instead of that bulk works a lot better. It kinda just looks like spray paint, especially with obvious Photoshop eraser brushing in the middle. Try a low opacity soft spray paint eraser brush in this situation , it works wonders. Also just a suggestion, throw some colors in there besides blue for space, throw a little green or some red mixed in there, photoshop has gradients that fade into nothing, neat ways to add colors into space using that and lowering opacity layers.

The coloring on the pone's and the background lilipads and flowers and stuff is a bit different , but i actually really like what you did with the lilly pad stuff. Its one of my favorite parts of the picture, even though the angling on some of the lili pads look like they exist at another angle so they look upside down.

The picture is cute and I enjoy it and it some ways its artistically invigorating it makes me wanna draw even though I just did , and its actually edging me closer to actually drawing a colored horse. Closer anyways.

Feel free to brush all this off as a weird guy talking about your art on the web, these are just my opinions and are by no means to be taken as Gospel

The angle of the viewer compared to the reflection of the moon and shooting star on the water's surface does not match up with where Luna and Blue Ace appear to be looking.

But that's not a mistake, because they're obviously looking at something else. They're looking at another shooting star, and this one is significantly larger than the one seen in the reflected water, because the shooting star reflected in their eyes is much beefier than the one reflected in the water (eye-reflections are tiny compared to water reflections).

Click on to watch The Mane 6 wearing a hat, Photo Finish doing something else and Twilight Sparkle listening to the Bee Gees. You will be troubled. You have been warned.

Good try, but that's not it.

Actually, you guys have it easy now, since Village used the corrected version in his post. It's just a matter of finding the difference between that one and the one that Rhomega posted. ;)

Ah, right. You had the stars reflected on top of the boat reflection. Didn't notice that until there was a comparison available.

So dA does versioning? That's kind of neat, think I ran into that with one of mine, too.

Why do an goth pony set, when they could have done an evil twin set based on the comics...

Not to mention they all look hideous. And how does Celestia get a figure in the goth pony set instead of the Princess of the Night?

It's so weird that this exists. I guess it isn't a world away from Burlesque Pinkie, but that at least had some in-story justification. This on its own is just... weird.
