On Princess... by AssasinMonkey On Princess... by AssasinMonkey
Next addition for my Season 5 Episode Art!
Episode 10 - Princess Spike
For more info on my MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

Twilight is really sleepy this season!
Spike though.... That great cringeworthy stuff. Not as cringe worthy as the anthem last Season, but ok. It was quite an interesting development throughout the episode. Bit of a butterfly effect, going from one thing to another, then escalating quite quickly.

So many pony designs (and Gryphon!) So I went with sleepy head over here. The books would've been great as well, but I was tempted by the composition possibilities this scene offered. Also trying out some more different light situations, like last Saturday!

Fun episode! Nicely done, interesting to see Cadance again. She was too trustworthy haha, but she eventually knew. While Spike can try to run (out the window) he can't hide from the truth.

Hope y'all enjoyed!

I think this criticism will be super short. It seems to me, in this picture there is simply no flaws. The composition is perfect, it has been respected desired contrast of light and shadow.
Very much attention to detail - global illumination, the reflected light, glare - all in their places. Slightly exaggerated color saturation, but for this kind of art it is rather a plus than a minus.
Disadvantages extremely difficult to find. I noticed unless forgotten sketch line on the hair Twilight and not very neat pattern on the blanket.
The rest is a perfect art. There's nothing more to say :)

9.5 / 10

Beautiful piece or work. The technique is by far the most impressive, almost a half realistic brush style, half clay-mation. The attention to detail is spot on as well, from the bit of dribble on her lower lip to her bed head mane all looks the part for the idea of the story, a super tired, over worked to the point of utter non-sense purple pony princess trying to get some sleep as a concerned spike looks on in fear as a rambunctious redbird sings his little heart out. And to top it all off the boisterous bird perched upon her horn is a very funny sight to see.
Bravo to the artist.

Having worked in Disney Publishing for over 14 years, I own a number of the coffee table books.  One of the more in-depth is the "Art of Pinocchio"  I compared this style to the images in the book and it certainly is very reminiscent of the background art in Geppetto's shop/home, 

I knew Dave Smith (primary archivist) We discussed several of the movies but I remember him telling me how important Walt had said the backgrounds were, especially in Pinocchio (the whole multi-plane camera work). They were to convey a strong sense of comfort, warmth, and home. I don't know how Walt would have felt about the moniker "Assassin Monkey," but I did show this to a couple of my former colleagues who were in Disney licensing and they agreed, this certainly captured the spirit of the early Disney Studios. Remember, it was those movies that would make or break the company.  I should mention two other items - they felt the bird and Spike were a slight distraction (I explained the context).  The image of Twilight alone was very compelling.  After I gave them an idea of who she was, they felt (and I agree) that you captured a good deal of her essence. They were also impressed that "My Little Pony" could inspire work like this.  Finally, they agreed to watch a few episodes. 

For my part, I feel you took her out of the realm of the show and portrayed the scene almost as a reality, as if the show were an animated re-telling and this is what it actually looked like.

Not sure if this was the sort of critique you were looking for, it's more of an impression actually, but I hope it's somewhat helpful.  For what it's worth, my colleagues said that the style you chose was ideal for the subject matter.

Тебе явно нужно поработать над ушками. Нет, ну правда, это же несерьёзно!
Посмотри сюда: pp.vk.me/c313518/v313518752/6b…
Вот такие уши намного лучше выглядят.

Однако закрытые глаза, брови над ними, рот, в общем всё лицо, и особенно рог с птицей - очень классно смотрится, хвалю :)
