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 :p

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 ;).

Really nice job on featuring Chinese festival ambiance! (Am I right?) Love the idea that starlight is riding a fire cracker! Fabulous dresses too!

OOf, yet another amazing piece of art! I love the choice of colour too, it seems so vivid and true to life, and the background is done well too! :)

Hope to be on your level of art one day- I started art as a hobby over a year ago and I've gone relatively far but still a long way to go. :)

Keep it up! :)

Golly.
Starlight looks so pretty wearing a traditional Chinese dress.

Good drawing VanillaGhosties.

Hmmm. Chinese New Year related, right? And we know that in Equestria pigs can fly thanks to Discord.

Amazing work. You keep impressing me with your skills. But ever thought about drawing something else than ponies (or their human self) to put on a challenge since you've apparently nailed the pony style? I mean a griffin, a hippogriff, a changeling (old or new), a dragon (other than Spike) or even a yak? Yeah, I could have said a group shot of the young six (which I wouldn't mind to see in your style to be honest), but I was talking about trying to draw another specie isn't something that would interest you in? Oh gosh! Why I haven't said a kirin?

Anyway, I was just curious on the matter.

VanillaGhosties Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep, that's what I was going for!

Thanks a lot, cajobif! As for other drawing subjects, sometimes I'll practice humans or draw other animals while free drawing, but only really as sketches. I stick to ponies for full paintings because that's what I enjoy drawing most, and I still feel as though I can make my style better. If a character of a different species inspired me enough, it'd definitely be in my considerations to paint a picture for them, but so far it's always been the pony characters that I'd rather do. Thanks for asking!

cajobif Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2019
Okay. So it's by love that drives you to draw mostly ponies. Of course, you want to master it on your own way. Maybe more action oriented? Read, dynamic.

But of the student 6, which you would tend the more to draw?

:iconvanillaghosties:
VanillaGhosties Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep! I could still be a lot more comfortable with drawing different poses/expressions, so that's what I've been practicing a good amount when I'm not working on new paintings.

And probably Silverstream out of the six of them. She's a cute birdo.
