Still with the idea of Twilight using an age spell for one day to play with her friends like kids would do. Catching the time she never had with them. I wanted to do this one since a few weeks, but didn't take time for that.

This one is one of the reasons why there wasn't much update lately.

This is possibly the cutest thing ever! I always imagined what they would act like together, and you described that perfectly in this picture. And you also described their personalities awesomely. It seems like exactly what they would if they were kids/pirates.

Also you're detailing is incredible! Everything from the shading to the setting is perfect! But what is truly is amazing, is the expressions. It seems like you got it straight on. You also did the water really well. Specking of water, the texture is awesome. The hair, the flags, and the wood on the boat is all incredible! That's my critique, and I hope you think it's fair, so peace!

This is such a cute picture that I can imagine it would be hard to critique. I guess the one thing I can point out is that the water looks like syrup *YUM!* I assume the guns are carved wood, but it's interesting to know where Twilight got that cannon. More interesting would be how sturdy that sand fortress is.

But logic aside, I love how you do eyes. Hard to describe the method, but they add such childlike expression. [I hope you do a tutorial on how you draw them.] The soft coloring adds innocence, much like this scene is coming out of a storybook. And despite the simplicity, you have attention to details. The overly large hat on AJ and Pinkie submerged with a little flag on her snorkel are examples.

I have to add: Lil McIntosh is my favorite character in this whole scene. He's the only male in this troop and there just enough difference in his design to show that, without looking overly feminine and without losing that childlike quality. Nice work.

You are one of my favorite artists here on dA because your style is unique to me. Room for improvements, yes, but you are on track and ever growing. I recommend to everyone reading this critique to <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="30" height="16" alt=":+devwatch:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="459" title="Added to my devWatch!"/> this artist! And if there was an Adorableness rating on this critique, I'd make it a 6 star.

Thank you very much for your critique.

For the eyes, I've done a very quick tutorial on my tumblr a few weeks ago. It's very simple actually : [link]
