I won't lie, there is something homely about that Ponyville architecture.
This may be my first painting focusing on a group of characters. I was clearly not certain if I want them to draw all the attention or just be there as a secondary element. Then I just let the flow run it's course. Sugarcube Corner was hell of a work too. Just when I came up with its position I finally started to have fun.
Gummy seems to be tacked on a bit, but weirdly enough... it didn't work without him
I appreciate the idea of Colgate/Minuette being a part of this picture if it's really her. Their laughter reminds me of the episode "Amending Fences" with Pinkie and Minuette for the party of the(ir) reunion with Moondancer.
Pinkie's Mane is special aswell, never seen her in a style like this before xD And you're right, without Gummy it wouldn't work ^^
Tonight I will try to remember the feeling I'm getting by looking at this picture.
Yes, that's Minuette, the second happiest pony we know of.
Anyway, too many compliments. I dont like Pinkie's mane. And I don't think her expressions matches the enthusisasm that her body shows. I mean, really, whyyyy are those eyebrows so straight?! Why Devinian, Why?!
The level of detail that has gone into this piece is extraordinary, because of that, it feels so lively, vivid, Pinkie in particular just seems to leap out of the picture and I can't help but smile with her.
Keep up the great work
You did a fantastic job bringing the busy little town to life, not least of all for bright and chipper Pinkie Pie and her extemporaneous entourage gathering around her and Gummy. Her happiness is definitely spreading like wildfire, and even that one pony waving from her garden can't escape her chipper charms.
Along with such beautiful work on the ponies you did freakin' amazing work on all of the charming and OMFG-so-very-detailed buildings, both close up and then in perfect perspective as we look down the lane. The background, plants, flowers, objects, etc. are all fantastic as well. You really outdid yourself, and I truly appreciate your hard work. Thank you.
