Alright, so since I had no part in this development I can shamelessly write a critique.
To start... *flops over and dies* this is just so awesome! Everything from the shading to the mane to the fucking awesome background rocks! This is the best Christmas present I have ever received ;-;
I like the uniform, it is like Spitfire's uniform but I guess a different color. Still has the same epilets, too. The mane is way different, being flowy and way longer than Rainbow's normal mane, but I can understand that is to compensate for the hat being there. The shading is your usual gaussian and hard, which work wonders. I love the shine on the hat. I tried doing something similar but you just nailed it.
The background in itself is beautiful, you'll have to show me how you made those clouds!
I guess my only criticism would be her anatomical correctness, which from now on I'm going to take more seriously. I think her neck is long and her left eye looks too big and/or too low.
Now if you'll excuse me I'll go die of happiness now, if that's ok with you...
This is what you call a critique?
You've got like one criticism in it. The rest is just a massive amount of praise. This is just terrible. I cannot really put into words how terrible this is without referencing certain sexual acts that I feel would be inappropriate to mention.
Critique is for an artist to learn and get better, not for them to get their ego stroked.
Alright well this critique was indeed praise because Dori-to and I are bros and I have been smacking him on the head over every little detail throughout the whole process, so really I have little to say other than praise.
