Artistic Flutty by Sokolas Artistic Flutty by Sokolas
I started this drawing as an entry for a certain contest, but was a bit late. So, now the picture is totally unrelated :)

This critique is mostly about content-details:
Fluttershy has a very lush hair and it's going in front of her face - that way she'll smudge the paint and ruin the mane) You should've picked her hair. She's also looking at the painting by the side her quiff goes down, I think that would bother her in process.
There's no palette/water. The lack of background (hills, trees, mountains maybe?).
And I don't think that easel is steady enough ;)
Also her tail is a bit too broad at the very beginning.
The sun is on behind of her head, yet the glares in her eyes are placed like it's in front.

Критика в основном по содержанию-деталям:
У Флатти, как известно, грива очень пышная и выдаётся вперёд - при рисовании она и волосы себе перепортит, и рисунок размажет) Стоило собрать/подвязать гриву. Плюс она смотрит на картину той стороной, где у неё чёлка опускается, думаю, это ей сильно мешало бы в процессе)
Не вижу палитры/воды, отсутствует дальний фон (холмы, деревья, горы?).
Мольберт вызывает сомнения по поводу его стойкости)
Хвост слишком широк там, где он начинается из её тела.
Солнце находится позади относительно её головы, но блики на глазах расположены будто оно спереди.

Я бы ещё написал, но, кажется, придирок и так уже слишком много)
Практикуйся ;)

This is very cute. (Well, it is Fluttershy, she is after all cute). But anyways, it is still cute. I love how she is holding her paintbrush and love the sky and grass. You also got everything about Fluttershy right too. Her eyes have to be my favorite about this. :meow:

The sunlight would be my second fave too, I love how it's shining on Fluttershy, giving her a glow. Very lovely and very beautiful. Honestly, everything about this is very adorable, very cute, very pretty, and very great job. That is all. Hope to see you do more.

So yeah, nice job.

Sokolas Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The grass is pretty simple; I make a bunch of layers, select the basic brush, pick a few shades of green, and paint it. As for the hair... First I shade it as a solid object to make the general shape and then add additional strokes of darker/lighter shade to make it look like hair

That is just amazing! Just goes to show you that even Quiet people (or in this case ponies) can have strong talents in them and that their great talents can do the talking for them. (i hope that made sense) Great artwork! :iconfluttershyclapplz:

I say, this is a very beautiful Fluttershy piece of art, which is simple but probably gains its beauty directly from it. We shared the same Equestria Daily Drawfriend Stuff with a Fluttershy image, so I couldn't unsee something like this =)

If there's something I could point out, then it is (as others are saying, though) the perspective, which is, if not off, a bit strange. But still I see something beautiful: what I like the most is the coloring style you used: being this in "Digital Art" makes me believe you did it with some program, and if you used Photoshop I would really be glad if you could tell me if you used some kind of particular brush to give this painting-like feeling: you use this even with the characters, but that would be useful to me with backgrounds since they're... my weak point xD

So, in conclusion... very well done, an image I really like and which catched my eye. And of course, this one goes straight to my favourites =D

I use Paint Tool SAI to draw; most of the things are done with the basic Brush tool with different settings, like blending, density, hardness, etc. I don't know how well does it imitate the real brush, since I have no experience with the traditional media other than pencils, but if you like the looks, I suggest you go and try it for yourself.

You never know what you're capable of until you try it. Maybe she's a good painter, it's just the animators don't show us?

Fluttershy here is adorable~ The pose is simple, but that works well for the scene.

I agree with the critique pretty much on positioning, in this situation her off-side mane view - [link] would best help keep her mane away from being near the painting while keeping this relative viewing position.

Or maybe have her face the easel as you're not required to have the subjects face towards the viewer or anything.

Item-wise, yea once you notice it, she doesn't have any of the paint supplies in view, plus the easel looks like it's only up on one-leg at the front, because the positioning is too central, even if you didn't mean to make it appear in the center, there's no hints to showing there's another front-leg to the easel.

Ignoring the eye 'glares', I use them anyways even if light doesn't directly reflect into the eyes because they're sort of like a sense of 'life' within, drawing without any eye highlights makes a creature seem dead/lifeless, so personally I say having the highlights around still is fine.

To add - the perspective is a bit off, unless she's near the top of a hill or something where the land behind drops down, I feel like the horizon line is placed too close to Fluttershy and the easel's legs.

Anyways, hope that helps a bit. Personally I suggest checking up on some background tactics as your ponies are drawn amazing themselves already at the moment, 'though of course it's your decision: checking stuff like horizon line positioning, 1~3 point perspective, etc. Maybe checking on depth of field as well.

Thank you very much! I guess I should'n be lazy and push myself to draw additional details even when the picture looks quite finished to me... Like, draw Angel bunny holding her paints and swatch, add some trees or other details to the background, think something about her hair, etc.
Perspective is quite confusing to me. I definitely need a good tutorial on that. And something about the backggrounds

Looks a bit like from AeronJVL - who is master of drawing Fluttershy! :) Very nice, especially her hear around her neck (closer to us) - that whitish part is fantastic :)
I recommend focusing a bit more on the eyes- play a bit with the blue-greenish part of it. You could also enhance the grass a bit - it's nice you manged to draw it both in front and back of FS for the 3D effect, but you still could enhance the colors a bit to look more real,also a bit of things like the more recognizable clouds, to make it look more realistic.

I don't often fav not-totally-amazing-mindblowing pictures, so please don't take this badly, just like a suggestion maybe :)
Fluttershy is the cutest pony!
Cheers, Antošík

Thank you! While drawing this, I had a few of AeronJVL's pics opened as references, but it didn't help. He can draw an amazing pony with, like, 3 strokes, and I just can't understand how does he do that.
As for the grass, I don't like it either. I should look for some tutorials, I guess...
