You'll Always Be #1 to Me by NaterRang You'll Always Be #1 to Me by NaterRang
This is my submission for Applejack Appreciation Day, which incidentally is TODAY!

It was a little rushed, but I actually managed to finish this before the deadline! Did almost the whole thing last night, so there's a few rough spots. ^^;

I would write more, but I have to run. (I'll add some comments later.)

Well let me start off by saying that this is a really sweet image ^w^. Level of detail is nice, especially on the legs, expressions are good as well. On thing I adore about this image, and its a silly thing really, is the Manticore doll. There's just something so right about seeing a fearsome predator as a filly's doll, and of course Scootaloo would get a doll that is in some way badass.

I feel you slacked off a little too much on the background, the way the fence wraps around the carnival doesn't look correct, indeed the carnival is probably the least appealing part of the image. That aside though, I like this image, ;)
What do you think?

Ill start with your pros and end with your cons.
Well this is a sweet image, the coloring is nice, along with the shading, I like how you included that Manticore on Scootaloos back. However even though the shading is nice, it doesn't seem to make sense. If the sun is going down on the left side, shouldn't the shaded area be on the right side rather than from the left? The designs are nice, but a tad point particularly the hooves. Im fine with the background, but you could've done more with them. My main issue is the fair. It looks so...plain. Some fireworks, more rides or tents would've given it some flare. It looks very dull the way it is now. That about wraps up my critique. All you need to do is fix the light source, pointiness, and the fairs rather boring look and we have a great piece of art. ^^
