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!

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.

Unbelievable! Normally these ponies don't translate to 3D very well, but I bet you could pull it off.
