The Hero of War by boomythemc The Hero of War by boomythemc
This is it, the last piece for the Mane Six, and it ends with Pinkie Pie.

Battered and wounded, she could barely move. Yet her friends were in no better shape, and soon to be even worse. She mustered all of her strength, looked at her dear companions, and charged the enemy. Her eyes welled up with tears, not from sorrow or pain, but rather from seeing all the great memories with her friends flash by. She approached the beast who hurled fiery rock towards her, but her resolve was solid and upon getting within range, she gave one last smile and a faint inner laugh and leaped. There would be no more laughter in this war.

Hope you all like this piece, I once again tried different things and tried being more detailed as well. It was a little tough but I am happy with the results.

This is a powerful work, made even more so by the short story/description you wrote. Your execution is very good. Your subjects are recognizable, and portrayed well. Your composition is good and placed well to keep viewer interest. What I liked the most is the effort you put on the countenance of Pinkie Pie. Her face displays the contradictory emotions so well, I believe the observer can interpret your story even without your description. The overall darkness of the background also lends to the dark foreboding you are trying to convey.
But Pink, the color of hope, is present in both of the characters in this work. Whether this was a conscious decision or not I would love to know!
I wish I had helpful advice about your execution of the digital medium, but as I have stated before, I have nothing to add.
You are beyond me as an artist, and I can do little more but nit-pick at this wonderful piece. For your consideration, I offer the following:
1. Fluttershy appears flat, and desperately needs shading to show roundness. I don't know if this is because of the limits of your tools, or just an oversight. I can see you did give her highlights, but that is not enough to give her 3D form.
2. Pinkie Pie's left ear is missing depth to show the interior of the ear, or it is shaped incorrectly to show its direction. Either way, it looks wrong.
3. Pinkie Pie's right leg from the shoulder to the knee looks too short. This is really very minor, but I offer my opinion.
4. Once again, I nit-pick, plate armor does not (as a rule) crack. Armor piercing projectiles, (in this case, arrows and spears) are little more than big nails on a stick that poke a small hole to make the armor bearer uncomfortable, (VERY UNCOMFORTABLE) cause blood loss, and make the armor unwieldy until removed. Damaged armor of this type should have dents, small holes, broken arrows/projectiles, and surface scarring, but generally will be intact. Killing blows against plate armor were typically done by forcing a blade between plates in close combat, by severe concussion, (ie. a heavy object/weapon to the head) or by eventual blood loss due to the shots/stab wounds that did penetrate. I find the cracked armor very distracting, however, I may be in the minority.
This is another successful portrayal of a Mane 6 character in a dire circumstance. Whatever your next subject may be, I'm certain that you have the talent and skill to bring it to fruition.
What do you think?

Yes. I just wanted to get the mane six all done before the end of Summer so my goal was just the six. The princesses will get done later, when I find the time.  :D
