Snowing again by Imalou Snowing again by Imalou
Remake of this one because I found this so ugly and sad that it's my most viewed deviation

Well I haven't done a critique in awhile, so let's get started shall we?
At first glance, it's gorgeous. The details show, the nice shading, the background and more. When I zoomed in, and I saw where the heart is. You took your time with her features. The eyes are dazzling, and the cute little nose is a nice touch as it reflect off the light source. I can imagine feeling where she is (where ever that may be) i love how you add the accessories such as the scarf and headphones. It's a nice touch over the product as a whole.
The only issue I had was that the buildings weren't as detailed as the pony, I'm not too much worried about it cause that's not the main item. But still...
Other than that, the background is decent. Your character is excellent! I have a new iPad background XD
Thanks for your time ;)

I'm no good with words, so I'll get right to it. At first glance I can tell that yo took a lot of care in the details of Scratch, especially the eyes, cheeks, nose and accessories. I like that you used her Cutie Mark as the insignia on her headphones. Her expression seems to denote a question of some kind and it makes me wonder what is going on in front of her, adding to the allure of the overall picture.

The background is less detailed, but still retains a level of intricacy that can be admired. The buildings themselves remind me of something like an isolated township in the north, like Canada or Alaska, though with less trees.

I admire the brush style you chose for her mane, the darker blue being more opaque than the light blue highlights. The shading on the horn makes it look more like bone or some other material that is separate from her fur but still melds with the fur perfectly at the base as though there was no difference in material.

The shading is consistent with where the light source is perceived to emanate and gives great light tones to the eyes, especially in the irises which seem to hint at purple or violet near the top on the left eye. The scarf was also a great aesthetic choice, further enhancing the picture in the winter environment and that the ponies still perceive a similar amount of cold as compared to humans, despite their fur.

Overall I think the picture is an amazing piece that you should be immensely proud of, as it shows your improvement in your technique and aesthetic choice. Thank you for the new desktop background! :D

Wow! I dont think that I have ever seen a vinyl like this! This is just wonderfully crafted. Your style is absolutely superb. The shading and lighting is done super well as well as the facial expressions. This is very original and I would love to see more like this! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna
