Honestly, I kind of like doing "sets" of the ponies. After my paintery versions of the mane six with the elements of harmony I figured I'd do another set of them in my normal style. Went with a winter theme and decided to include backgrounds since I'm still not very good (or fast) at them.

Playing with a "cut-out" background style. I fiddled with making the sky an uneven shape, but it kind of looked like water and was a bit confusing. So I just left it like this. I kind of like how it looks almost like a stage of a play.

Critique? You're asking for a critique? This is amazing! I cant find fault with..This...This masterpiece! Her blush indicating it's cold is adorable, her smile is perfect, the reflection on the ice is a perfect mirror image to the image above it. The sky is an array of blue and white which is perfect for layering. The mounds of snow are perfect, more color than just white and gray it is amazing. I don't think anyone I've watched on DeviantArt could do better. All I can say is maybe you could add a bit more to the background, but that's it! Simply amazing :P

FINALLY! I am finally going to be a critic! I LOVE IT! But I'm going to have to be more precise than that! The overall thing is fantastic! I am a stickler for details, but you got it spot on! The little sparks from the ice, the shadow and the reflection, the must from her breath, the blush on her cheeks, it was all just so perfect! I love the idea of Pinkie on ice, but I only gave it a 3.5 for originality because it is a canon event and I have seen it done before. However, this is the best I have ever seen of it! The technique was a 4; it was really nice, but I personally found the circular background somewhat off putting. The overall impact was amazing! I was just like *GASP* and *OOOOOOHHH!!!* It is truly breathtaking. Overall, I give it a 4.5. And from me, that's quite an accomplishment! Most of my friends think I'm a harsh grader, and that makes this all the more impressive! You managed to convey emotion, temperature, movement, speed, and realism into this work. When I said that you keep getting better and better, I meant it! This is just so amazing. You really made my day with this. Like always, keep it up, my friend!

These clouds are also awesome and the way you've done snow in the pics I've seen is also unusual and cool! I love also the shoes and skates you've drawn :love:
