My Precious by professor-ponyarity My Precious by professor-ponyarity
A piece to practice some new techniques ^_^
After receiving a rather lengthy critique from :iconpix3m: I decided to try out some of his suggestions. A tiny bit of reflected light, a bit of colored shading and a colored line; I can't argue with the results myself, but if anyone has any thoughts on the work I'd like to hear it ^_^

You've definitely got the lighting correct.

I know you have a lot to do, but one thing JUST came to mind: Firetron is a bit God-like, and so is Sombra, so my idea is having Sombra scared senseless by FT's Invincibility form. I'll link you his form later later. (this is a suggestion)

The best kind of Gollum, ever. And she doesn't have to hunt her precious cupcake down throughout Equestria and ultimately die clutching it—she can just go ahead and eat it! Isn't it fun?

Quite impressive... being perfectly honest, this seems a bit too smooth for the concept (meaning that Pinkie is a bit too clear, considering the lighting and all), but in general it's a nicely done piece, especially that light reflection in her eyes. Kudos.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by clear, are you talking about the lack of horse hair?

Not quite... I was more refering to the fact that the lighting in this piece seem weak and thus should leave more "darken" parts on Pinkie, while when I saw this, I got an impression the light engulfed her as her entire persona seems to be "clear"... that's more or less, where I was going with this.
Of course this is just my, personal opinion and I'm not a painter myself, so I can only grade such works on the "feeling" I get from it.

No, you're right, realistically the light would probably not light her up like that. But I liked the lines contrast against the black too much to darken it. I did try the darker option, but I liked this one better. Kuddos for spotting that though ^_^ I asked for thoughts and you cared enough to give me the truth.
Thanks!

Well, I try ;)
It's very stimulating to come across artist that is actually looking for truth and ways to improve in stead of simple flattery ;)

To be sure, simple flattery is also appreciated ^_^
