4 the Final

My final Season 4 Finale piece, or at least specifically made for it.
That makes 8 pieces total for the finale and this one actually the longest of all my Season 4 pieces in time spend.
1 Saturday/Sunday, 1 Session, 1 Art piece. 15 hours.

This episode ended the season so good. Awesome meaningful song at the end, nostalgic photo. I just had to make my final S4 specific art piece this scene. It's the last thing we saw and I'm so looking forward to what's next.

Did simplify in terms of details, because well... 7 characters lol. I'm kinda happy Discord didn't join in the picture. So my refining isn't that top here, instead I tried to do the details all in 1 go up to good enough level (rather than multiple passes)

Also used the face style I started with my Applejack Exalted piece. Refining it a bit and also seeing them in slightly different styles per mane 6. Oh and Spike.

Worth the time, even though I could've spend twice as long cleaning everything up.
This concludes my dedicated season 4 episode arts, for which I had a minumum of 1 art every episode, every Saturday in 1 session. Extended here and there.
You can see all my S4 results here:…

Approx Time: 15 hours
Time Lapse:

Really good use of shading. Has a look of symmetry on the face. Rather having the appearance of edges on the face and ears. The detail is rather impressive. Nice shine on the eyes. A little glossy, but nice. Hair looks more realistic, yet anime in details. Consider having less of a solid edge on the face with the lower half of the head in comparison to the upper half. A more smooth transition in color should help.
I'm very impressed with the overall drawing. And Deviantart won't let me put less than 100 words. Frustrating. Hope this critique helped.

Do you work in Photoshop?
AssasinMonkey's avatar
Yes, almost all my work is completely in Photoshop (currently CC 2015)
Only a couple of my animations were also in After Effects.

This art is so beautiful! I really adore your style! Brings recent memories of season ending and reminds me of how old MLP and bronydom is getting, and we are STILL strong and awesome.
