Commission for a very drunk Berry Punch
I wanted to try a different approach to the commission’s concept conveying the character by incorporating her fan created talent or habit (depending on how you see it) in to the overall composition.
I also went for a rawer feel with some of the strokes to add to the drunken aspect of the piece

Very nice work on this. The raw approach to it certainly helps convey the disheveled state of a drunken person (pony). Also, obscuring her partly with the empty glass on the floor seems to aid in that. Despite the rest of her being slightly blurred from the glass, it looks like her cutie mark is crystal clear. Not sure if that was intentional to emphasize the talent, but it stuck out a bit in contrast to the rest of the piece.
If I'm viewing it right, it looks like the glass has cracked too, which conveys a nice bit of story as to how it, and it's former holder, ended up on the ground, both having seen better days. However, the crack isn't immediately evident and, at least initially, my vision was drawn more to the top part of the glass (just below the stool). Perhaps a more prominent crack or placement of it would help.
The stool, in contrast with the rest of the images features, seems a bit flimsy and top-heavy (perhaps something that aided her journey to the floor) but it just doesn't seem like it's built to support the average pony.
The strands of individual hair on her main are a nice touch. It really helps show the disheveled nature of her state of affairs, but it also seems to contrast heavily with the relatively smooth textures of the rest of the image.
All told though, I think the use of texture, the perspective/angle of the shot, and the entire composition do serve to effectively show someone who's hit rock bottom. Nice work on this.
