:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Impact

Before I say anything, I just want to say I already think very highly of this picture. If I did not, I wouldn't bother 'critiqueing' it. So even if I'm not giving it a perfect score in Vision and Originality, I hope you're aware of that.

There are a few things that make it somewhat awkward for me, the first is that luna's eyes are really more of a blueish teal than a moss green. Celestia's expression is at just the right moment for it to feel like she blinked in the middle of a photo. The background is sketchy, and that's usually fine because it's not the focus of the image, but in this case it seems to deviate from the clean disney-esque style present in the foreground/characters. This is especially jarring if you look at Luna's pillow and then the banister of the bed.

On a positive note, the anatomy is pretty much spot on, or at least as spot on as it can be for somewhat anthropomorphized magical horses. It communicates emotion instead of just looking emotionally manipulative. The color and atmosphere are also nice touches.

Really, the biggest positive for this picture is that in spite of its flaws, there's still a lot to love about it, most of it seems intangible (but I'm not really an artist, so I may lack perspective) but you can still feel its presence.

Just how much younger is Luna from Celestia?
jisowthefleetway's avatar
never mind that, just how old is anyone in this show
Prism-S's avatar
They're in their late teens to early 20's.
Celestia & Luna are at the very least 1020.
jisowthefleetway's avatar
no, I want real numbers, not estimations
Prism-S's avatar
Fine.
I'm going under the assumptions that 2-3 years have passed in the show thus far.

Rarity and Applejack both started at 21 and are now 23-24
Fluttershy started at 20 and is now 22-23
Pinkie Pie and Twilight both started at 19 and are now 21-22
Rainbow started at 18 and is now 20-21
Spike started at 11 and is now 13-14

Celestia started at 1033 and is now 1035-1036
Luna started at 1029 and is now 1031-1032
Discord started at 1031 and is now 1033-1034

(Tia was 10 and Lulu was 6 when they found Discord of 8/Tia was 11, Lulu was 7, and Dissy was 9 when they were found by New Equestria/Tia was 28 and Lulu was 24 when freezing Discord of 26/Tia was 29 and Lulu was 25 when sealing Tirek away/Tia was 30 and Lulu was 26 when the Crystal Empire Dissappeared/Tia was 33 when she banished Lulu now Nightmare Moon at 29/Tia doesn't like to regard that 5 year span for any reason whatsoever)

I said REAL numbers NOT estimations, you don't just guess, give me there actual ages from the show or don't bother
Prism-S's avatar
My apologies, princess, but there are none as of yet. 
I can only offer rational speculations.
jisowthefleetway's avatar
so essentially you just wasted your time again, congratulations

This is great! I want to ask, when you were sketching it out, was Don Bluth an inspiration, because i see a lot of that in this image. +fav

I admire you for going the difficult route and drawing poni from scratch in 3 dimensions, instead of lazily copying angles most used in the show.
