Princess Celestia Vector by hombre0 Princess Celestia Vector by hombre0
Long live the Solar Empire!

I think the total time taken was around 12 hours... I put a lot of effort into this one. I'd really like a critique, I want to improve!

EDIT: Fixed stupid fill mistake and rotated slightly.

Well starting off, I think this is very well done. The quality and the detail is very nice and well done. It looks just like her original art (detail wise). Im not sure if this is just your way of coloring, but I do wish the color's were more livelier and bright. Also the colors in her hair, if they were blended a little more.

Otherwise, this is a very nice picture, and like I said it is very well done, I say keep up the good work . Im not sure what else to say .

Good day to you
yiyi~

This is very good, I want to make that clear. It's very close to the original, and for the most part your technique is very good. All that can really be said is nitpicking, so I'll try to breeze through it the way Fluttershy insulted her dress in "Suited for Success". :D

- The tip of her tail is cut off at the end. If it were the border of the canvas, I could understand, but you have additional "fluff" below that, so I don't really understand what happened.

- Speaking of which, the tail/mane colors seem a bit faded. Going off of this screenshot [link] ,they look like they should be a bit richer, and less sparkly. Luna's the one with sparkles, because she has the stars in the night sky - as one (very smart) Deviant said (I wish I remembered who), they thought of the Princess' manes as "windows" into the sky. So, looking at Luna's mane, it's not actually hair, so much as a filter that lets you see through whatever's in front of you, to the stars behind, no matter where you are (if that makes sense). It's a bit of a harder comparison to make with Celestia (although you could make the argument that daylight is more "colorful"), and it's a more useful technique to use when painting than with vectoring, but it seemed relevant anyway.

- One last thing with the mane - I'm not sure about this overall, but in one or two screenshots I've seen, the border color isn't supposed to change. It stays blue throughout.

- The colors on her hoof greaves are a bit faded, as are the accents on her mantle and crown. They aren't supposed to be quite as rich as the borders, but still a bit more obvious.

- Finally, the position of her eye and mane makes the space between her eyes look a bit flat.

Again, I'm nitpicking - this is outstanding work. Be proud. :)

is very cute, since its vector art, you can try to make a light shading layer inbetween the coloring and the lines. Play around with that and see if it suits you.

I think the eye lines should be a bit thicker, but otherwise, bravo!

Not bad, but should increase the tickness of the eye's lines.

Good work, hombre0! She needs to be tilted backwards (clockwise) about 1degree as she looks like she's tipping forward slightly in an off balanced sort of way, y'know, like when your old uncle fences epee.....

I think its a bug, I'm experiencing exactly the same thing, I tried on Firefox & Chrome with the exact same results, it seems the normal viewer is not working properly for me either
