New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 3: The Gift of Maud Pie
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

Another episode, another piece made! (Unfortunately next week's has to be delayed till Wednesday because I'll be at BUCK)

Why do I often go with a scene that's kinda tricky for me haha. Especially for a single session piece. So I kept some things rougher, compared to last episode's piece.
And for once I did a Dutch angle again! I have not done a lot of those over the last year. Used to do them a lot more during my Season 4 art. And how can I not when there's graceful movement like this involved? Well... I could easily have not done that and also made it a portrait ratio to lessen the load. But eh... hindsight.

This was a fun episode, interesting combination of characters, with a good little lesson. And some rarity life progress I guess!
Losing that cannon was slightly a shock at first. Not like Golden Oak, but... it's another of those things that was there from the beginning. Good we still got it eh?! Maud knows best I suppose. That's the face of wisdom right there.

Anyhow, fun little details aside in the rest of the episode, hope y'all enjoyed it too!

Where to start... might as well start with the first thing I see. So the angle of the picture is very nice, you tilted it just the right amount and it adds another level of interest and depth to your picture. The background looks realistic and not too detailed for MLP, and same goes for the ponies. Shading on the clothing is well done and the colors stand out in the dull (but not too dull) background.

The expressions on each ponies face are true to the episode, but aren't so outrageously cartoonish to where they add to the realism. Having different textures for their manes and tails was a good edition and add to the overall showing of their character (you can tell a lot by looking at a persons hair).

It's nice to see some realistic MLP, it can be hard to do because of the art style of the show and occasional going against the laws of physics and stuff like that. I myself have an even harder time finding pictures from scenes from the show, but out of the few I've seen this is one of the best. It brings new life to the show that I've felt slipping away over the years and I kinda missed that feeling.

Over all this is a amazing picture capturing one of the simpler moments from the show and giving it more depth than it originally had.

Once again, you have outdone yourself with this piece of the latest new episode with Maud and Manehattan!

Choosing the scene of when they were at Equestria's version of Rockefeller Center and using the ice rink was perfect for this piece as that was one of my more favorite scenes as they were showing off more of Manehattan with their versions of the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller Center alongside Central Park and where Rarity will set up her latest branch of her ever expanding business!!!

Awesome and amazing job, and I can't wait to see what you have to offer for the rest of the season as with what we've seen so far, I have a feeling this season will blow the last ones away with what we will see in the following months!!!

Wow! Drawing is amazing. But, i think, there are some mistakes too.
I think, background is too contrast. Try to do it a bit less bright - and ponies will be the main objects on drawing <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> Now they are not - sculpture on bg diverts attention from ponies and it looks not nice.
I like Moud's face xdd Its so cuteee
Perspective in drawing is a bit broken - it looks like Maud is very-very big. Try to do Rarity and Pinkie a bit less bright. (More brightly than background but less brighly than Maud.)
Technique.. Its very nice. But sometimes seems like ponies are made of wax. Maybe it is your art stile, but i think it would be more nice if you'll try to draw their fur more realistic <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
Otherwise - everything is very nice :3
Best wishes,
(sorry for mistakes in my english.. I dont know it very good. I'm russian)

You did an astounding job on the threesome, on so many levels. The mares all look fantastic for one, with great details and absolutely perfect expressions. Then the dynamics are fantastic, especially Maud's very skilled maneuver. (The angle is a big plus there as well and really puts the focus on Maud.) Pinkie is super adorable and so cute as she approaches the stunned unicorn. Rarity's flabbergasted expression is priceless as she watches Maud, especially since her own pose suggests she's not the steadiest on her hooves on ice. Fantastic job on the rink, garden, building, and lovely statue. Awesome work on the colors and effects for truly beautiful depth to add to all the liveliness.
