New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 21: Every Little Thing She Does
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

The power! So much cheating unicorn magic power! It was pretty great to see more magic, though. Seeing Starlight going bananas with it. But the entire episode's Starlight lesson was a great angle as well. Twilight basically taking on the other side of something she's been through herself in the past. Passing on the lessons she's learned. And with a pony that has quite the magical potential as well.

There were so many little things spread throughout too, the little jokes, all the references Applejack made, and more. But for this piece, I did want to do a bit more interesting location, a bit more dynamic, a change from last week's choice. Although then I ended up thinking about this here underwater scene... Something I could practice on, which I haven't done that often before. So a fun  little challenge, to balance out with my style. Thankfully this one can rely plenty on post-processing, which I find relatively easy to apply. At least in a way where it's "good" enough to look kinda like what it's supposed to look like haha.

At least I was more on focus this time, or so it seemed.

Anywho, the episode was quite enjoyable. The spells cast had some interesting effects and resulting in seeing ponies we'd otherwise probably never see them. And then I wasn't even thinking about the "magic hangover" hah.

Hope y'all enjoyed it as well, and my little bit of art here.

This is great. These beautiful colors delight. The character itself is marvelous and you can see that it was created by a professional.
I like it very much.
I saw the rest of your work.
I am waiting for more

I never was comfortable with underwater pics; well-done though this is.

I've yet to explore caustic lighting techniques, but you seem to have it down to a believable level.

They could conjure barriers around themselves to stay underwater longer. :)

Oh my Gosh, the hair in this is just perfection. They really look like they're under water.

Apparently, Gill Gel isn't as big here as it is in Pufftop.

...

What, you're completely clueless as to what I'm talking about? Then view my gallery for more information...
Great art as always.

A bit off topic.  I can't seem to find any art anywhere of a specific scene that I really like from this episode; Brainwashed Fluttershy covered in spiders and centipedes.  I don't think anyone could do that scene better than you.
