Commander Rainbow Dash by Neko-me Commander Rainbow Dash by Neko-me
It's a completely experimental pic to figure out if I can draw a semi-realistic pony. But I think I'm gonna go back to my previous stly (this one takes too much time). Anyway I hope you like it though. You can't imagine how I liked Dashie in an armor. Ponies look amazing in armors.

Thanx for the favs and comments!

I'll go ahead and say this right away: This piece is GORGEOUS, and I can tell that you put an immense abount of time and effort into this. So very well done. Your background contrasts rainbow dash's colors well, but it might be a good idea to make it a little lighter or or darker, as it does blend in with her armor a bit. VERY good amount of detail on the eyes, armor, and the mane especially. You also did very well with the lighting and dimensional aspects. It makes the piece look very realistic.

Very very good work. The only thing I can possibly think of making a suggestion for is the backgorund. I applaud your work. You should be very proud of it. :)

Just to be clear, I think that the purpose of critiques is to at least know where we could grow as an artist. Maybe some day, if we become good enough, you could have even more attention and praise than what you get right now or even impress some of the toughest critics out there.

But, if some of my thoughts wasn't quite helpful, if that was your idea of what critiques are about.

My only problem with your critique was that irt was rather subjective. You are right about the light source it is really difficult to cath the right angle, but about sem-realistic I have different opinions.

Neko-me Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is full of noticis you did with the problem of the light source. Don't get the wrong idea I really appreaciate personal opinions in the comment section. True I accepted someime very subjective critiques, but I started to understand what is subjective and what is objective. Your ideas are welcome, so I hope I didn't offended you.

You didn't answer my question though. What does an objective critique look like? Can it critique color? Composition? Lighting? Anatomy?

Better yet, thought about asking one of those posh groups like poniesplus for a critique? If there's a good source for critiques for pony art, it's most likely gonna be somebody from that or a similarly elitist-ish group. I already had my own two cents about it being not as real as it could be and finding it uncanny because of that. I think somebody else might be able to give their own unique perspective.

Sorry if you felt that my critiques weren't helpful.

However, ever thought about going for top tier art groups like ponies plus? I am sure people of your talent could get into that group easily ;)

I know pony plus and I'm not ready yet to be accepted there. I didn't turn your critique down because it was negative critique.
