Hello there, it;s me again!
Okay, fair warning, I am NOT a professional in any sense of the word, but when asked to be critical, I am surprisingly enough, my mindset is easy to change if you know how to.
But anyhow my last review I didn't have a way to grade it per say, but if this becomes a regular thing, I should have one, and that's why I will for now and the future (if you want anything else critiqued by me please send me a note!)
But here we go.
Vision/Technique: How much color is used? Does it reflect the tone or mood? What is the mood or tone? How are light and darkness and shadow used? Is the style of art (2d, 3d, 2.5d, hand-drawn, cartoon, animation, digital, gif, meme, etc.) reflective of the mood or tone? What little details are there that can be easily missed at first glance?
Originality: has this been done before? If it has is this piece or art work using something different to try to make it unique? Does it accomplish this goal?
Impact: How did I feel about it? How do I think others will feel about it? Do I think it's good? What about others?

Now before I begin, let me make this very clear, just because I give a bad rating on an art work doesn't mean I think the artist is bad, I know that every artist tries their best and hardest whether this is their job or passion, any creator I believe will do that.

But anyhow, on with the review!

First of all, nice going with originality! Robot ponies are nothing new, but they're not exactly commonplace either, and the most common robot character we see is Sweetie Belle, and certainly NOT her bigger sister! Good job on that, but just so you know, I will probably never score anything 5/5 for originality because EVERYTHING is inspired by something, 4.5 is probably the best anyone will ever see as in it's excellent, but it doesn't break the typical norm or genre of something.

Next, we have vision/technique. Excellent use of shadows once again (I forgot to mention this in my FIRST review, so sorry about that!) Again, little details count! Nice details for the joints, hooves, legs, and cutie mark too! And the magic glow/light from her horn is just wow!

The set piece though, that is really interesting, I start to think where is she? In a studio? In a computer? Making the audience guess and question things, nice! Bonus points for you and a cookie! (And a cookie for ALL the art I favorite or like of yours or comment on! Which I will try to do my best on for as many as I can honestly!)

And finally, impact. I think this won't leave the deepest impression, but certainly a good one.

Overall very nice, but I feel "Nice Bass" leaves a slightly better impact and has more potential for Fanfiction too.

Please keep up the great work!

So,this is piece looks beautiful!I like how the shading was even and it looks pretty realistic,Overall the piece could have some angle improvements aside from that;this is amazing when you take something and make it new! Hopefully you understand to maybe fix the angles a bit but this is still a masterpiece from MLP.. If you did improve I'd like to see the newest one!I hope it'll be something worth while from you or any brony who can impact me with this drawing! Just enjoy what you can do and try your best! Also have a nice day, from Tamagotchi229!

Congrats to myself, this is apparently "Useless"?! Since it's my first time, I feel that I wasted a good 10 minutes writing this for nothing; could it be I'm overly glad with this piece and they thought I was a troll??? Well, I'm not a troll and this is just a surprised they thought for a good few minutes to say that this renders as "Useless"... I'm now disappointed with how they think being proud with this isn't "Useful" But who cares, right??? But I just feel stupid to even bother with doing something nice and instead get regected... I have no clue how to react....... :|

:iconunderpable: My comment to this is just speechless, I don't understand why my statements were off or something... I personally love your art but if you get this comment then please look at the one above, it was from a while ago but I think you should understand that I did try to do something interesting and I'm not sure why it's bad to be happy? Is it because I'm overly happy or just you thought I was a troll? I dunno man but please understand that I pretty much was never in the MLP fandom and have no clue if there are any other pieces similar to this one.. Just give me a heads up?

Why ponies, I don't understand why people can like this stuff what is the appeal.thses cartoons were made for little girls why are adults atracted to this. The teqnique is very good, but it's not original it's been done before. I don't even understand what the vision or impact things mean, but whatever it is I don't feel it I would if I did, I would understand if u felt it. I think this is a very good peice but the subject is in my opinion overused and TRASH. You have your free will and everything, but I don't understand why ponies

Dude, I have never seen A MLP picture like this... I understand you might not like it, but your gonna see that maybe their trying something new...

$$$ from toys. If you can create a product, you can also breed the need for that product. And so cartoons are born. But not all cartoon. Some are truly original ideas that become so popular they are then purchased by larger entities.

Right. So This is a Very Nice Revamp of an older piece, so before i go into the nitpicky details i will first compare it to the original.

Your style has clearly improved vastly, having both your detailwork and proportions improved in comparison to the original piece, complete with an original pose and everything, so that gets points for technique.

The backstory behind her is cute, especially for justifying features like the mane, tail, and the horn.

However, there are a few weird details that kind of throw me off but are probably not too noticeable.

The forehoof that is hidden behind the back leg is kind of at an odd angle, though that might just be me, so i can't say how accurate that is unless i got a consensus.
Reflection is decent enough, i would say to do a bit more blending on the shadows because it's a bit weird

The big thing though is the tail. I can't quite tell which direction it's spiraling downard because the initial curve implies it to be counterclockwise, but the two following curves move in a clockwise fashion, with that second one being actually ambiguous in direction, and the end being also ambiguous. This might be a result from the fact that it's hidden behind a leg and it obscures some necessary details, but it is a bit too far for suspension of disbelief.

Overall, I give you 4.38 stars out of 5.
Really nice.

P.S. (the improvement over the original is actually inspiring to me because my art is currently on par with that original and it goes to show how far a person can go. that is all)

Even by considering the fact that i HATE MLP, this is really impressive and creative! Why not calling her ''Project R.a.R-28''?
