How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd;
Labour and rest, that equal periods keep;
"Obedient slumbers that can wake and weep;"
Desires compos'd, affections ever ev'n,
Tears that delight, and sighs that waft to Heav'n.
Grace shines around her with serenest beams,
And whisp'ring angels prompt her golden dreams.
For her th' unfading rose of Eden blooms,
And wings of seraphs shed divine perfumes,
For her the Spouse prepares the bridal ring,
For her white virgins hymeneals sing,
To sounds of heav'nly harps she dies away,
And melts in visions of eternal day.




Happy Hearts and Hooves and I'm ontime!

This is truly amazing. I love the detail and how accurate the ponies appear, (Yes, pun intended). I can see this was no walk in the park to draw, and you've gotten almost all of the details correct. The sun is truly wonderful looking, the clouds were done expertly, and the details of the ponies and Ponyville are almost completely correct. This really gave me a warm feeling inside, as it should considering it's a Valentines Day painting.

Although, I personally feel there's too much going on. Don't get me wrong, it's amazing to see the main characters doing their own things and having them all there, but I personally think it's a little overwhelming with all of the characters and buildings. I think it'd be a little better if you put some ponies in the sky or resting on clouds or even on top of buildings, rather than having them all on the ground.

Otherwise, this is truly a work of art that has a strong, wonderful impact. I'm really impressed with it! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Wonderful work. This has wonderful detail and the sunset is beautiful. I love how you got some pairings together. The shadowing is perfect, as I might add. All the favorite pairings, plus the Mac x Smarty pants joke. IS THAT SOME APPLEDASH I SEE?! PLUS 10! Beautiful detail in the backround. The little plants and rocks I see along the river are gorgeous, and the.... wait a minute, do I see Pinkie's flying contraption AND the Pinkie balloon? Hmmph, that's not right. Heh, Spikestache and Rarity taking a stroll, I see? The sad thing that I noticed where the little backround ponies alone. Where's Fluttershy's partner? And that pony alone behind the bridge? Who's that? What I would've like to see where a few filly pairings, like Scootabloom or something. Nice out of anything I can say!

I really like what you tried to do here and because of the depth of this project I am going to critique it, I feel you deserve a good solid review of your artistry I will say that I am no artist myself and I apologize in advance if that discredits anything I am about to say.

I personally love how much detail you poured into this work, everything from poor "I drink to forget you" berry punch to all the canon and fanon pairings evident in the piece. This is an amazingly detailed image that reveals something new every time one looks at it. From the setting sun to the tears in Lyra's eyes this is one of the deepest pieces of art I've seen.

Technically speaking it is exceptionally well done, however there are many places you could improve your craft the most prominent being lighting. I love the twilight sky but there are highlights in areas that there really shouldn't be and shadows that are missing from certain locations. As an example, and primarily because they are the most obvious couple, Derpy and the Doctor have some odd highlights, the scarf should not be lit as keenly in the foreground since Derpy and the Doctor both would cast shadows on it. Derpy herself is also lit along the edges of her fore and hind legs, considering she is in front of the bridge she should be in it's shadow and the scarf and her own body should be shading her foreleg. I understand that much of this is done to avoid the normal black outlines you see in art, something I very much appreciate, it draws attention to this instead of aiding in the effect. The same thing can be seen on Lyra and Bon Bon, however I would say that Bon Bon's hind legs are the best example of light used correctly in any of the art pieces I've seen, unfortunately the effect is broken by the shading on her front legs.
Overall toning back on the higlights in key areas will make for a greater overall impact from the lighting in the places that it needs to be.

All of the ponies seem to be proportioned correctly and I adore the amount of personality you've managed to pour into each of them, Berry punch being the best example.

Lyra's magical hand is squee worthy and Twilight in Trixie's cape is as adorable as spike with a manly mustache. The only pony that confuses me is Fluttershy who seems to be having a moment of dramatic introspection on the balcony of town hall.

Speaking of, you managed to add much of the town to this image without crowding it making for a brilliantly composed piece, personally I would have Carousel Boutique in (though it's possible that I just don't see it at the moment) and some apple trees in the distance to bring some more of the local flavor into the image. Considering how many of the popular ponies there are floating around though this may be over compensation.

I really like how you drew the clouds and Canterlot, both are exceptionally difficult to pull off and you did a good job of it. The heart above Canterlot especially feels right in place in the MLP: FiM universe.

I love what you attempted here, and the scale of the piece is epic, you have put so much into this that saying anything is wrong with it is almost painful, there is so much detail in this, from 80's Cheerilee to Dash's shades to Vinyl and Octavia and yes even the extra Doctor and Derpy that shows you've put hours and hours of work and, though it sounds cliche, love into this image that I wish I could give you a higher score but with the odd lighting and occasional duplicate pony (Two Pinkies and two Derpy/Doctor's) I can not justify doing so.

I love your art, I love your tumbler, I love the pairings and the scope of this art. Please never stop drawing because it is something you excel at. Your talent always makes me smile.

There are no words to describe how well this is .... This is a amazing Drawing really id hate to criticize such a thing, i love how you put twilight and trixie walking with each other and RD With AJ in the background, the main thing i love about this is how well Dr. whooves and Ditzy do (Or derpy whooves....) are kissing it just adds a nice touch Pinkimenia really it doesn't quit fit (under the bridge for those who didn't notice) It doesn't relate to Valentines (Ehem...Hearts and whooves day) But it doesn't bother me... like i said this inst much of a criticize.... its more like i'm praising you.... but you deserve it good work <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt="=D" title="=D (Big Grin)"/>

Would it be alright if I used this image as the header photo on my forum? I'll give credit, all I would be doing is re-sizing and putting our name over it, and I would put your DA page on it.
