Quite possibly one of the coolest pics I've ever made!  I knew eventually I had to do something with Twilight and Tirek and here it is!

This is the kind of art I would print and post on my wall!  I might just do that!  :D

As an avid brony, I really enjoyed season 4. I've also enjoyed lot's of Season 4 art. I usually don't write critiques, but I had to write one for this. The coloring is fantastic, The size is spot on, and everything about it is amazing. Your style of art is unique because you don't use Hasbro's style, yet you stay on track and make it look perfect. The moment I saw this in my deviantwatch, (because I am in many MLP groups), I knew I had to get a closer look.

Overall, great job on the art! Keep on being epic!

Usually I do anime and manga reviews, or some sort. Although I had done other mediums before, something had to be done that recently caught my attention... this!

Oh, so you're probably thinking "It's not really that special dood", well... I'll agree with you on that, but what makes this special is rather interesting. For this critique, I'll do my very first MLP: FiM review.

I recall that two-part finale, with Twillight fighting against Tirek, one of my favorite villains in the series. My favorite part of that episode(s) as a whole had to do with the combat, which was pretty much inspired by Dragonball, a nice nod there. This is what many could consider the highlight of the episode and AleximusPrime captured that moment very well. Here we see the struggles of Twillight fighting against an enemy that I think many modern shows needs, a big, arrogant threat that poses a challenge.
That's pretty much how I summed up the episode(s) as shown here, so if you had not see it, I suggest you go see it.

What I liked about this artwork shows quite a lot. If you had to come up with an image to sum up the whole episode, this right here says it all... in his style of course. Personally I like the way he drew Tirek in his style, kinda makes him more beefed up and serious while Twillight prepares to fight back in a suitable pose. Nice touch with lighting as well so that's a bonus right there.

If there's anything else I should add, this is perhaps to be one of his best works yet. To sum it all up using only one scene as a whole isn't anything new, but Alex's approach shows a slightly different angle that does justice.
