That position will make you very dizzy.The book reading also adds up to your dizziness.
How long do you think Twilight can stand that position?

Take that, Lyra! Twilight is the new queen of awkward bench sitting positions.

Number one: That is adorable.
Number two: I LOVE those... brushstrokes? I don't know, whatever gives it that painted look. (Not an artist)
Number three: That looks like a really -- REALLY -- hard angle to draw a pony at. The head especially. BUT SO WORTH IT.

Brb, going to go attempt to learn how to art.

interesting use of the different bush types on the trees and bushes. Also great choice in the color shades; purples and greens, but neither being evil-colored hues. This posture makes me think about the eases of have a magical horn that would let me use telekinesis so that I could read in whatever position I wanted to, but not have to use my hands to hold the book.

The image is a great piece of work. Only, i don't think her hair on the left side of the image should bend like that; it's at the wrong angle. It also looks a bit flat . . .

Other than that, this is a fantastic work of art. good job.

I really love the colour and smooth feel of Twilight, mostly on the hair and really good shading but the background does not really fit as it appeals quiet rough.

Dude, you are about two steps away from being excellent. The pose is great, you made a good choice for brushes, and the perspective all works out. Also, I wish I could color as well as you.

I've only been digitally painting for a few weeks. Set some time aside, study like mad, and you can do it too!

I've been practicing a lot lately. I can draw a lot of different poses now, but the secret to good shading continually eludes me.

Me too, in fact! But what has helped is /r/mlpdrawingschool, and PurpleKecelon's color guide.

Dang, that color guide is going to be useful. Thanks! And I've posted in /r/mlpdrawingschool a bit, but I'm not super-active. I might check out the chat sometime.

Great! I thought I recognized your name from somewhere. If you want to be pushed to improve, the /r/mlpDrawingSchool can certainly do it.

Just curious, what have you done there besides post your art? I've gotten some good advice from the posts I've made, but not enough that I'd point to it as a major source of my improvement.

Art is a conversation and learning art is even more so. I try to engage and discuss, post critiques on other's work (this is a great way to learn), and hop in any livestreams that come up. Just interaction in general. I've also been organizing the artist Q&A's that you may have seen posted occasionally. Those are great opportunities to pick the brains of prominent artists in the community.

Upside-down reading is the best kind of reading!
Very Pretty! Well done!

I like the colors and the perspective on the face a lot! If I had to pick out a qualm I had, it would be that the trees in the far background are too wall-like. I think it would really improve the look of the picture if the trees got thinned out like a real grove.
A minor note, that mane! Love it. =D

Thanks for the feedback, I always appreciate it. I agree about the trees. I have major problems coming up with interesting compositions, so it's something I'm going to be focusing on.
