First of all, her face is completely adorable, and I would expect no less from you. The dress is interesting, and a nice color contrast. Her hair is pretty, but seems a little longer than normal, if it's meant to be her standard hairstyle. The curved rocket is an interesting element. Rockets don't actually bend like that, of course, but it gives an impression of unstable direction and wobbling which is quite effective. On the downside, Starlight's body seems distorted at the bend, and looks like the barrel is too long. That might be what's going on with the mane as well.

Overall, a really fun and pretty piece, just that one odd thing in the middle.

Thank you for the feedback! Glad you like how the dress and face turned out. 
I heard similar things about the middle part of the body from other people as well, so I'll try to look out for that next time. Thank you for sharing your thoughts (:

Wow, this fanart of MLP you did here looks brilliant. The fanart looks really realistic and I like it how you managed to capture Starlight's appearance in this. I'm liking how she's managing to hold on to herself from the rocket. The background is also appealing to me. I have to say, your G4 My Little Pony fanart looks really creative and realistic. Starlight here looks like she is enjoying a blast on that rocket. If I can sum up your fanarts it looks very creative. I also like it how you managed to paint the sky as well. A very good and well detailed artwork. I like it <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/>.

This is quite the eye-catching picture! I'm a big fan of it.
I need to emphasize how well you did with the colors here. The clouds and buildings in particular are lit very convincingly by the lights down below and the moon. I'd say this is your best background yet. Great perspective. Maybe a redder hue on Starlight would work better since the moon's behind her though.
On Starlight herself, there's all sorts of nice details that came out pretty nice. In particular, I like her outfit, mane, and face. Maybe there's a bit of a sidemouth there, but it fits alright with the picture. The biggest pointer I can give is that with that curved firework rocket (not sure if that's for cartoon effect, fishlens, or some other reason), Starlight's pose seems a bit ambiguous. From how I see it, it seems like her body is longer than it probably should be.
In general, stunning work Vanilla! Starlight here would be doomed if she didn't know how to teleport though <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":p" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="394" title=":p (Lick)"/>

Glad you like the background! Was certainly ambitious for me, as I don’t actually have a huge amount of experience with three point perspective, but I’m happy to hear it came out nicely. Will probably experiment more with that kind of stuff more in the future. Tried out some new techniques with coloring the background too, so perhaps I’ll try more of that as well!
As for the rocket, I was going for a cartoony sort of effect to help convey the movement, but I should probably be cautious with pushing that too much in an otherwise semi-realistic style ^^
I think you’re right about Starlight’s pose too- always had problems with poses where the body is behind the head. But I’m glad you like the picture overall! Took quite a bit of time and effort. Thanks a ton for your insightful critique, Litrojia, I appreciate you taking the time to give me your feedback! ^^

No problem! The cartoony perspective makes sense with the subject matter and all, though it can be hard to tell if the art style itself isn't cartoony. Looking through the comments though, I think others caught on easier, and I'm just overanalyzing =p
And I'd love to see more background stuff like that!

Even though they've done the converted unicorn four times now...I just love each one of them.  Trixie, Sunset, Starlight and even Tempest.  So many amazing unicorns. :heart:  And Starlight's addition to the series...I love it! :D  And you've really captured her excitement in this one.

Really nice job on featuring Chinese festival ambiance! (Am I right?) Love the idea that starlight is riding a fire cracker! Fabulous dresses too!
VanillaGhosties's avatar
Yep you're right! Thanks a lot, I'm glad you like it! (:
