I could comment on something being off, but to do that I would have to give the critiques of the best of the best standards, and then I still are only able to see minor things, like some color could have a smoother transition, but in all fairness, those places still looks good and works.

So all in all, I would say that it´s a master piece <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/>
And honestly, I`ve seen professional paintings (I´m second year in art school) that have WAY more faults that this piece, and those still sold for stupid amounts and became ridiculously famous.

Going over to the deviant rating,
I give 4/5 because of the 3 flashes, I personally feel like they could be smaller, that they draw too much attention and that they should be a background thing. But that´s just my personal preference.

I give 3.5/5 for originality because there´s a lot of pictures that have similar situation/objective, but I think you pulled it off really good.

I give 4.5/5 for technique, while I don´t know the exact technique/software/hardware you used, you used it really good and the only thing that keeps me from seeing you as a all knowing professional in it is that some color spots are a TINY bit off, for ex., the color in the mid pony´s tail feels a tiny bit rushed at some spots (I had too really look for faults too see that).

I give 3/5 for impact, as I said earlier, this kind of situation/objective have been made a lot before, and with the Brony community being as talented as they are, leaving a huge impact (4.5 - 5) is next to impossible.

Overall, I think this is an absolutely amazing piece <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>
3.5 bullshit lol not even close "with the Brony community being as talented as they are, leaving a huge impact (4.5 - 5) is next to impossible."

That means you mark them all high, not good art down lol. This isn't UMS marks.

Thanks for the critique!

It's a shame to see a 3.5 star average to this drawing :'3 but for the individual components I get whatcha mean. Can't do anything about originality, my purpose was for them to be in a peaceful setting, so yea bound not to be original x3;

Yea, might've overdone the flashes

Hm, techniques are a little dubious, because if you really nitpick you can find issues in anyone's drawings really at that point. Understood 'though, I do have trouble with Feather's type of mane/tail style when it comes to shading. I don't know my shading that well yet still -w-

Not sure impact is the same as originality however

But fairs fair, again thanks for the critique

1. if I could set the overall rating on the picture I missed it or put wrong, the picture to me is a 4,5/5.
2. I couldn´t be more picky, I would have been that picky on a picture from the best of the best in history. So you have no reason at all to look down on yourself in any way.
And the part with the color, everyone has something that they have extra problems with, so for an example, I find more problems in a professional painting then I did yours.

Love the texture on the manes, tails, trees and grass. The shading is pretty well executed, to such extent the characters almost look 3D. Anatomy and proportions seem to be correct. The overall composition does feel quite mystifying/enchanting. So, well done!

My only complaint here really is one of personal preferences, and that's that I tend to dislike lens flares and other such obstructions/obfuscations/distortions. I'll not hold that against you, though. This is a very nice piece, and it definitely shows how much time and effort you put into it!

I will ding you on originality a little, because I have seen similar scenes before, and it would also be dishonest in my opinion to not consider the MLP component to this in terms of originality. Despite this, I still think it's an amazing piece, and I'd hope you would create more like it.

Fairs fair to the originality point. I mostly just wanted to put all my OCs together into a peaceful scene, and as such originality needed to be cut.

Eh, can't go wrong with a common filter. I felt the sky was a bit lacking otherwise but your opinion is noted for future reference and I'll try not to depend on it.

Thanks for the critique~

yep. Well, nothing's wrong with being "unoriginal" or "inspired". To achieve a 100% originality rating is truthfully impossible. And yeah, for your purpose, that makes sense. But also, you primarily do MLP art here, anyways, right? So, your subject matter would kinda be expected that you'll have some kind of ties-in to MLP. Nothing wrong with that. And you certainly don't blatantly copy the default style of MLP, which not to hold this against them,or anything...but many artists do.

yeah, and it varies from case to case. The fact is, an unbiased judge cannot exist. Even in a courtroom! There are just things that for whatever reason , some people like, and some people HATE ENTIRELY. I am one for details and generally not much censorship. For example, show me the engine of a car, I wanna see inside of it, especially when it's running. Likewise, this translates when I view a piece of art to, I don't wanna see ANYTHING in the way unless it HAS to be. I'll admit though that adding "noise" sometimes could be a good thing. (this is effectively what primarily compromises a texture, if you think about it)

You're welcome (:
I almost posted it as a comment originally, but not long after beginning, I felt this would be a total FLOP like last time. In truth, judging is not really my style.

I would say the month of work really payed out. :love:
This is such a wonderful and beauty art. It would been really missing on deviantart, if it wasn't drawn. :heart: (\s/)

So I just completed a piece of my own (most recent submission on my page if you're curious). It may not the best ever, but it's my best yet, and it took me a ludicrous number of hours to finish.

Then I saw this, and your mention that it took you a month – and knowing my paltry little piece and what it took to make, I can believe it. It shows.

I feel your paaaiiiinnnn

Very nice drawing ^^
Since I've seen the archer's sketch for the first time the feathers behind her arm always reminded me of fingers/claws (that's not a bad thing, just something I noticed, I really like the anatomy) ;)

Great job! I can really see the depth, and the background looks great :)

I really, really like it! It's obvious you put a huge among of effort into the lighting and textures, and it all came out beautifully.

Your coloring always leaves me stunned. Everything is so smooth and clean. One day I hope to achieve such greatness.
