I don't know anything about what the inside of the boutique looks like, so I did use a reference from the show itself to help me with the background.
-Paint Tool SAI
-Wacom Bamboo tablet
Saw some of the unjustified ratings; down voting/up voting because you like the show, not because of your skill.
I like the shading a lot, and I like how some areas are sketchier than others which makes it look out of focus (whether that was intentional or not). My only gripe is the neck because the direction of the shading makes it look like her neck is stretching (only the direction, the darks and lights are fine). The background is also pretty bland, wouldn't hurt to have more going on (a window, a table, a mirror are just a few ideas).
Thank you so much for actually critiquing the pic instead of talking about the fandom!
Anyways, I've gotten quite a few mentions about her neck from here and other places, so I uploaded a different version with some extra smoothing/lightening.
Dear moondevourer, your art seems to expose something in me that anything else does not. You made me vomit rainbows twice, which is sad as I have to clean my desk twice. You know what I mean. Allright, let's get down to the nitty-gritty shall we? I love that you used a blurry background to not stray the beholder's attention anymore, some of your other masterpieces kinda did that to me. Besides that, there is not much I can say as I am not that much of a pony fan. Altough firsthand experience is not required for criticism, and it's actually better not to have it for an unbiassed feedback, I would also like to adress the shadows, my vision always seems to drift to the right for some reason. Overal, 5/5 for you dear.
AMAZING. Love the way you drew this picture.
what is that evil thing
I completely agree with Assassin625. I'm sick of bronies as well. Anything that is pony related automatically gets rated highly by bronies no matter where it's located, or how good/bad it is. Bronies also throw pony content into completely non related subjects.
Those are my two reasonings for why I hate bronies. I don't hate the show, I hate the jerks (Yes, they're jerks) that plaster and spam every inch of reality with pony related content.
I'm glad you at least explained your reasoning. I also don't agree with people highly rating something based on their fandom rather than the quality of the image itself. I also despise spam as well. However, as this is an art site[at least, from the impression I got], I AM allowed to post fanart here, right? I don't do a lot of it, so I doubt I count as one of your "spammers". I'm also a girl, so I'm not sure I count as a "brony". I've seen a lot of good in the brony fandom as well, so I'm not so quick to hate them for the annoying ones. Every fandom has annoying members, which people seem to forget as it becomes "cool" to hate on the new kids on the block.
EDIT: As a side-note, I'd rather people review the image itself instead of yelling about how much they hate the fandom it's from. Please respect me as an [admittedly amateurish] artist and give me critique instead.
