Luna by Sokolas Luna by Sokolas
I've tried to draw Princess again as well as use some techniques new for me. I think I'm getting more familiar with alicorns anatomy, though this picture is still way to far from canon.
There's a version with slightly adjusted colors

Проблема с передними ногами и фоном, работа вроде ок, но размыленность заднего фона делает глаза больно. Так же-поблема с цветами и светотенью, вообще не понятно откуда что идет, куда падает свет и вообще в чем смысл жизни. Бликов на волоса добавил, и то лучше было бы :3 Работай далее, молодец!

This is a very lovely depiction of Luna. I really like the way her mane is drawn as non-starry. The color is a nice shade. I could see this artwork hanging up in Canterlot as a royal portrait. Fives across the board. I see nothing worth nit-picking over.

For those that can't read Russian, here's a Google Chrome translation of the other critique:

The problem with the front legs and the background, work like the app, but razmylennost the background makes my eyes hurt. Same-poblema with colors and light and shade, do not understand how that is where the light and in general what is the meaning of life. Highlights on the hair added, and it would be better: 3 running on, well done!

I love Luna with her mane this way, and I've always enjoyed pics of her when she doesn't have her hoof guards on.  Beautiful pic and the waterfall in the background is the crowning touch! :)

I can't say exactly why, but the way you draw Luna is amazing. I love this pic and the way you have her grown up but w/ out the magic mane. It's like seeing her with her hair down. ^.^

Thank you! I prefer this style of hair, I'm not really fond of that starry shiny magic something they have in the show...

I prefer this version to the "slightly adjusted colors" version. Really nice and climatic piece of art! Although I prefer the realistic style from you, this is not so bad too. Her mane is not show accurate, but I like the way you build those hair - very realistic and complex hair.
Also very good background! I like it's so blurr and climatic!
Also, the critique sucks.

Tbh I'm not a fan of princesses' glowing sparkly manes, I prefer more... natural look. The critique is fine, the guy is just being honest, not insulting. I appreciate every critique and comment, positive and negative, because, after all, that's what helps me improve.

I'f you're going for canon the Luna has to be like super skinny. This might be the best picture I've seen with the old school hair though.

Thanks. Yeah, now that I had some sleep and look at the picture with fresh eyes I see that my Luna is bulkier than she should be.

Awesome hair, especially mane. So light are only pricesses' manes :D

Head <-> neck is perfect, seriously, perfect.

Body a bit too fat and the legs should not be below the plot, but beyond, take a look at some foxinshadow, will do you good.

Overall, try getting some active light into your composition, so that some sharpnessess and highlights emerge.

I think she looks great! =D It makes for a good explanation for the change in appearance of Luna in season one to Luna in season 2. Sort of like a missing link kind of deal. =)

To me, art is a matter of whether I like it or not. Given the fact that MLP in and of itself is far from realistic, it's nice to see different styles.
