Crossover with this [link] requested by someone on /mlp/. I've experimented with the shading and coloring here and am not particularly happy... Maybe it's because of SAI, maybe I'm doing something wrong, I dunno. I'm gonna try Photoshop, I think.
This piece of art is really nice. It gives the look that there was water in the bucket and she became wet.
Vision; I really like the point of view. Most of the time it is not a good idea to place the art in the middle but with this, it totally fits. The background is neutral so the Pony is a eyecatcher. I give you 5 stars for this because it really gives a 3D feeling and everything has volume.
Originality: as you already said, you did this for a request. I did not see anything like this and it is very original. 4.5 stars for this.
Technique: the shadings are all on the right spot and it is pretty dramatic. It gives the feeling the pony has volume. I only think that the lighter color is a little too dramatic on the skin. The hair looks wet, I don't know if this is what you want with this picture, but it fits pretty good. The eyes have very much depth. I only think that the shading on the wings is too messy and the cutie mark a little sketchy
Impact: I think that her eyes ar a little emotionless. 3.5 stars.
Keep up the work!! So in one sentence: very nice but sometimes too sketchy.
This is a wonderful piece of art! I love how her mane and tail is wet, and the way she is half lifting it off and her innocent expression. Although I do think her eyes could show a little more expression. Her eyes have matched the ones from the show nicely. Use of shadow and 3D is splendid. Her mouth and nose are very cute. I absolutely love it! Rainbows wings look very nice, too. It would've been nice to have water dripping off her or just a little drop sliding down her chest or back. I am not a very good critic, but I can say this is an excellent picture.
Just a quick review, since I don't feel like writing a wrong one- I really like the shading, but it could really be broken up a bit more. Too much shading can be a bad thing, too. The main and tail is spot on, but it doesn't look wet at all. My only main complaint with this, is that it's a bit flat. Her face has no definition, and her wings look more glued on than folded. Her eyes are OK, but could be more accentuated by a snout/nose. But besides all that, I really like the look of realism on it, and I think that adding fur would both make it easier to shade, and give a bit more definition to later drawings
