The one criticism I'd have with the pic, since you did ask for it, is that the sun makes a "static point" that draws the eye too much from Rainbow Dash. (Having her wing cutting across a bit of it would have been even better).
Other then that, awesome piece; the contrast of the sun and sky with her figure really works well, and I love the angles - it looks a chase-pony following her through inverted roll. (And yes, audience, if you look closely you see she's flying completely inverted - it's the camera, not her, that's at an angle to the horzon )
Yeah, I probably could've done that, looking back on this piece XD But hey I tried! XD I mean, this is one of my first pictures I've ever drawn, EVER. So I was still(and I still am) learning on what the hay I'm actually doing XD
Well, you already have more -right- then a hell of a lot of experienced artists; you have a good sense of the fundamentals of rhythm, balance, and composition in your picture. The way it is laid out is very pleasing to the eye and gets the "feeling" across the way it needs to.
The static-point bit really is pretty minor, and it is mostly handled by your blurring out the sun as you did, which makes it much less so. Overall, I'd rate the picture about a 8.5/10 - and considering how much art I've seen by people doing this for decades? That's a pretty high rating for me.
Just in case you were wondering, I saw this picture here [link] and tracked it down to find a bigger resolution for my wallpaper. XD Then i noticed that you signed it. Great job, this is the best Rainbow Dash picture I have ever seen.
"okay, here, flying, clouds, water, sunset, uh... not too happy with this one, lol ah well here ya go xD" "not too happy with this one" "NOT TOO HAPPY"
Are you bucking kidding me??? I am really fucking picky, and I literally have nothing to complain about here. As soon as I saw this in your gallery I stopped middle-clicking the interesting ones, openin them in new tabs because this required my immediate attention. Seriously, were you being sarcastic? I favorited this ten seconds after clicking on it, and downloaded it after typing the sentence before this. I should probably "sleep on it" before letting the impact of this (or any) picture cause me to type this over-the-top "HOLY FUCKING BAT-SHIT WOW" comment, but holy fucking bat-shit wow, this is amazing.
What I see of her is perfect. The size of her wings and ears, the length of her legs, the colors in her hair (mane and tail), and the detail (on her and the rest of it) is completely spectacular. I'm going to be honest, I don't like being manipulated by pictures, but for this I tilted my head as soon as I came here. Dammit, I wish I liked how you shaped faces in other pictures as well as you did everything else here. I guess I don't have to be disappointed though since no artist seems to do EVERYTHING exactly how I want, and I shouldn't expect that. Let me read over my comment...
Okay, you were joking in your description, and I feel kind of stupid xD I guess I know what people mean when they say they don't recognize MY sarcasm as a stranger on the internet who can only communicate via text. I just noticed the bits of stars and the swoosh behind her wings: very nice touch. I love your detail on the clouds too. Shit, I love all of this.
I love this one alot. I feel kinda sad looking at it because it displays freedom of soarin the skies at an incredible speed. Many would say that they would prefer magic or any other kind of superhero ability would be better, but for me flying is something which would feel absolutely wonderful. Too bad the closest thing we can come to flying is airplanes or hangliding. It's very beautiful nonetheless.
