It seems I was able to finish it before the episode. The reason I wanted to finish it is I'm sure obvious. This is how I felt at first when it became sure Twilight becomes an allicorn. I hope you like it.

Edit: Oh my I can't believe I forgot it. I used this set of brush for the rain: [link]. Me and my memory. :(

Thanx for the favs and comments!

This is awesome, a hater named ~BreakinBenny always says that she should leave her friends. She. Will. Never. Do. That. I have settled my cartoon sympathy towards most hated characters of any cartoon (except hated baddies). This has the most beautiful vision and impact. The originality is average and technique is above average. The community should understand the show. They don't keep it in their hearts. Rabid bronies think Hasbro is greedy. But they are. The show has moral lessons. Those are heartless bronies. Bad bronies. So that's why good bronies join #AgainstRabidBronies. I would not hate anypony. Even Rarity.

The reason is because she has to leave her friends (even if she doesn't want to), that's how royalty works. Having to put aside your toys and do tough things like going back to your studies, including taking care of a country.



..But since she won't leave her friends, they'll most likely be servants as they call her by Your Highness. (Golly, I would never imagine anything like Princess Twilight being foreshadowed since Season 1)

Tara Strong already confirmed that Twilight wouldn't leave her friends and Ponyville and return to Canterlot to be a high and mighty princess. True story, bro.

Then the coronation was not worth it, just an attempt in marketing by adding in something Lauren intended to not involve. If nothing changes, what purpose is there? Does Twilight really need royalty and wings to spread Friendship?

The emotions portrayed by this piece of art is very traumatic.
The way you drew the light source is amazing and the details are stunning. The rain dripping of her hair looks amazing and her face expression displays such anguish >':
exactly my thoughts when she transformed. You obviously have a good sense of where the lighting should go and where the shadows should be placed giving this piece much emotion.
The plummeting rain bouncing off on her body gives the sense of the pouring rain which matches perfectly with the emotions of this art. Now, I understand that you were trying to make the wings the mlp style, however, this ends up not matching along with the rest of the picture due to the fact that the hair is semi realism and the whole picture is coloured in a realistic manner, but the wings lack detail compared to the style of your picture. Overall, I adore this wonderful piece of art.
Awesommmeeeee!!!!

This here is a beautiful piece of work.

The way the rain bounces off of Twilight looks unique, as so the way her crown and fur glow in the light.
The tears shimmer nicely, and the strands of her mane are so perfectly put together to make the wet, realistic, feature.

Your shading gives it a wonderful sense of depth, like a sad aura surrounding it, and the dark colors used make that sense of depth better.

Twilight's wings are nicely tucked in, as if she never wanted them, and her expression makes it priceless.

Overall, the rain is just right, as it seems to blend in with Twi's sad look and the way it has the mane down such as it would with Pinkie Pie/Pinkamena. And with the beautiful crown of a princess sitting upon a regular mare's head, it ties it together because it gives a sense of unneeded pride and happiness of becoming an alicorn.
This made me shed some liquid pride.

I have to echo the sentiments of the other person and their critique, with it being best to put aside personal “fan driven, opinionated” ideas that surround Twilight’s ascension and what transpired in the season finale to really grasp this image in a better light.

This piece holds significant interest as it shows our studious pony in her ascended form, taking her place as “Princess Twilight Sparkle” in the world of Equestria. When I look at the image, it does give that sense of desolation where consequence exists in what may seem like an otherwise happy situation. I would equate it to that “specially gifted” child who excels at what they do, and the fear they hold when their family tells them they must leave their current life behind to achieve even greater heights.

The tears shimmer quite nicely in the rain, and the lightening helps to highlight the little pony’s despair as she seems to rage against the storm, demanding the world of Equestria answer her questions. We can also see Twilight’s emotions intermingle with the storm, becoming one, as she feels the turmoil inside of her with the new princess, in her vain attempt, trying to comprehend the situation; however, it seems the distraught mare can’t grasp things despite her well developed capacity at comprehending difficult situations.

Overall, the piece is well done with the rain being just right as the effect flows off the pony’s mane; the shimmer effect helps to benefit the image instead of detracting from it. It’s Twilight’s overall expression that helps to tie it all together, with the studious pony’s crown sitting upon a troubled brow.

Putting aside what fans have been enraged over and personal feelings on the matter (albeit more optimistic), you get the point across, and it's a solid point. Everything solidifies depression here; the dreary background, the lighting and the "it could be a tear or the rain" streaming down her face. I forgot to mention her mane, it looks fantastic, very realistic and doesn't deter from the image as a whole. I could go on about it to the point where you'd re-upload a new version where she's bald.

Perhaps it's me, but I'm enjoying her fur, as it's more rubbery looking like skin then actual fur, it just looks weird on the original design (few exceptions around the hooves and tail). The crown is also very realistic looking, it's odd how a combination of the more realistic aesthetics mixed while staying true to the show works, but you pulled it off.
