Commission for :icondcencia: I hope you like it!

Curse you and your amazing ideas for drawings :3

I tried to shade with some colors for a change, and it came out pretty pretty in my opinion! I may consider applying this style in further drawings.

Also, breezies are adorable. so adorable that I literally spent an hour and a half on each oneSweating a little... 

Anyways, I'm so happy how it turned out! ^.^

Also. on side notes, I started a tumbrl because of reasons. If you feel like it, feel free to add me!

This is a great image! I love the style you used, which is different from others. The details used for Flutterbreeze, like the long legs and the flow-like mane; i have to say, this one scored the top! The coloring is very good and clear; the lighting and shading is well-made, and the wings are very nice (those wings would've took me a long time and I still would've failed, but you did well on this). i like the way her pose is upward and the way you use warm bright colors accurately to describe her personality and her love for creatures. Again, well done!

Making justice to every single breezy sounds like a challenge already, so many of them and each one is so unique as well as quite detailed in their own way. Fluttershy looks quite detailed too, her body looks a little plastic but the texture used in her hair makes it look like actual paint, in fact the same combination of textures repeat in all the characters, not that is a bad thing though. The facial expressions look accurate in all their glory, Fluttershy is so focused looking at her new friends while Seabreeze is about to explode from their lack of focus on their primary mission: get home in one piece before the portal closes. Overall, this drawing looks good, the combination of these two textures could actually make a third one while being mixed all together in one drawing, even the signature on the bottom right looks cool enough to be valued!

First of all, happy birthday!

Now, onto the picture!  And quite an awesome picture at that - you are perfecting your new 3D style, and playing around more with the lighting source.

Probably the best part of this work are the attention to detail, the coloring, and the shading.  You pack quite a lot of detail into this piece, especially the breezies.  The intricate wings, both realistically transparent and all at interesting poses, are a wonder to look at and bring interest to the piece.  The breezies are especially cute, each with a highly unique expression and pose that shows their individual personalities.  My favorites are the one curled up in Fluttershy's mane and the one chilling on her hoof.  Your attention to detail invites the viewer to examine the piece quite thoroughly.

The coloring is also great - the colors are not too vibrant, and give the piece a muted, soft feeling.  The coloring of the background is interesting - by using green, the complement of red, Fluttershy and her pink mane stand out nicely, while she still fits well with the pink part of the background.  I do have a couple of suggestions for the colors though - having the green fade directly into the pink background is a little awkward, since they are close to being complements/opposites.  You may want to consider using a different background color, introducing an intermediate color, or having some texture to unify/separate the two colors.  Still, throughout the piece, the color choices are great, unifying the piece as a single whole.

Finally, the shading is looking great.  My favorite part of the shading is Fluttershy's cutie mark and ... flank.  I'm impressed with how well the shadows interact with the colors of her cutie mark, and with the shadow and the gleam of light on the side.  These all give a nice three-dimensional feeling, and provide a sense of reality to the scene.  Also quite nice is how Fluttershy's mane shades her face.  You have also kept the light source consistent, which gives a feeling of unity to the piece.  In future pieces, you may want to play around with shading with different colors, which can add a lot of interest and highlights to a piece.  For instance, in , the artist uses blue light from the poison joke to add interest to Zecora, and help bring her into the scene.  This effect can be overdone, and does not need to be used to that extent, but you may consider playing around with it.

Finally, a couple of things I think could significantly improve this piece - First, a minor one, but something about the mushroom-hat breezie's pose doesn't quite feel right to me - it would look great if lying on a mostly flat surface, but his (her?) body should be bent a bit more to be resting against Fluttershy's hoof.  As it is, especially with the lack of any shadows cast by the breezie on Fluttershy's hoof, the breezie appears to me to be floating.  Next, I would encourage you to play around with slight texture overlays for your drawing.  The background especially is slightly bland, and the plain gradients often don't quite feel right.  For instance, Fluttershy's mane looks a lot better in my opinion then the mane of the breezie to the left of her.  Like colored shadows, overlays can be overdone, but can also be quite effective - for instance, in , zoom in and you'll notice shadows are actually done as textured splotches rather than gradients, giving a more natural, and creepy, vibe than if pure gradients were used.

However, these complaints are fairly minor, and you have produced something unique and quite excellent.  You have a unique style, and are not afraid to try new drawing techniques.  Have a happy birthday!

Whoa, thanks my friend for this! And I agree that the breezie on Fluttershy's hoof could use a little nudge on it's position. To be honest, I originally planned to draw her completely on the grass, but I decided to move him on Fluttershy's hoof. And decided to keep it that way. That's why it may not look very natural.

Also, I didn't use a single gradient, hehe :D

But yeah, totally going to try with more colors in the shadows. Thanks for the critique! ^.^

You're welcome!

Wow, no gradients?  That is some very impressive painting/blending then.

Whatever you create, I'm sure I'll enjoy it!
