Ice Skating by KittehKatBar Ice Skating by KittehKatBar
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!

Mmh, though that one strand of hair, in front of her mouth, kinda... how to say that... ''reduce slightly the appeal of her face'' ? I would say.

Something about this reminds me of the style of MLP G3 -- and I do mean that in a good way, because I think G3 was the best-looking and best-animated MLP series. I feel like Pinkie Pie's old friend Minty should be in the picture skating with her, then it would be perfect.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings. Remember that this is just MY opinion. Tell me if there is anything I shouldn't have said. I need to know what to avoid in the future, and I really hate making my friends upset. And I truly consider you my friend! Even though I have only been on DA for a little while, you have been great to me, and a constant encouragement.

That's great! I just get kinda paranoid when I critique other people's work because there's always the occasional drama queen who asks for a critique and then goes "omg!! Ur so mean!!! I cried when I read this!" Not that I would think that you are like this, it's just kinda a habit now. I'm glad that SOMEONE likes longer, well thought out comments!

When requesting critique's I really just want someone to point out something I could have done better or looks a little off. That way I can keep it in mind for the future, so I can improve myself. As long as it's put nicely, any feedback is appreciated. I've gotten some nasty comments before (particularly on other sites) so I can take a little critiquing =P

Wow she's super cute! The only thing that bothers me is the shading on the bottom left that appears to come from the snow cast onto the ice. Based on the shading on her body, I can deduce the sun is around 45 top left, which actually throws off the shadow cast by her body as well as the shadow cast by the snow. What do you think?

My first word when looking at this art was 'wow' her facial expression and hair show you have true talent and the reflection in the ice is just pure genius, as a Pinkie Pie fan this is a easy 10/10 and no mistaken :D

Beautiful! I love Pinkie Pie in the winter, blue just goes with her so well. First, kudos on the winter setting, it's very beautiful and the background makes me think of a sun turned to ice. The snow and snowbanks are just gorgeous, and well done on that ice.
PInkie's hair is so fluffy! Well done on this unique interpetation of Pinkie's untameable mane. I love the curls and the wavy qualities you've displayed here. Her tail is of the same gorgeous quality. And I freakin' love her eyes, so pretty. Also, I'm loving the scarf and her skates. An extremely beautiful, well done drawing. Bravo!
