4 the Final by AssasinMonkey 4 the Final by AssasinMonkey
My final Season 4 Finale piece, or at least specifically made for it.
That makes 8 pieces total for the finale and this one actually the longest of all my Season 4 pieces in time spend.
1 Saturday/Sunday, 1 Session, 1 Art piece. 15 hours.

This episode ended the season so good. Awesome meaningful song at the end, nostalgic photo. I just had to make my final S4 specific art piece this scene. It's the last thing we saw and I'm so looking forward to what's next.

Did simplify in terms of details, because well... 7 characters lol. I'm kinda happy Discord didn't join in the picture. So my refining isn't that top here, instead I tried to do the details all in 1 go up to good enough level (rather than multiple passes)

Also used the face style I started with my Applejack Exalted piece. Refining it a bit and also seeing them in slightly different styles per mane 6. Oh and Spike.

Worth the time, even though I could've spend twice as long cleaning everything up.
This concludes my dedicated season 4 episode arts, for which I had a minumum of 1 art every episode, every Saturday in 1 session. Extended here and there.
You can see all my S4 results here:

Really good use of shading. Has a look of symmetry on the face. Rather having the appearance of edges on the face and ears. The detail is rather impressive. Nice shine on the eyes. A little glossy, but nice. Hair looks more realistic, yet anime in details. Consider having less of a solid edge on the face with the lower half of the head in comparison to the upper half. A more smooth transition in color should help.
I'm very impressed with the overall drawing. And Deviantart won't let me put less than 100 words. Frustrating. Hope this critique helped.
What do you think?

Fantastic! An excellent choice for the last of your Season 4 finale pieces, though, you could even draw four more when you want to draw all the major events seen in the finale.
If you should decide to don't draw anymore finale pieces this is a perfect closure.
I love the details in their faces, you said you have used the same base for all of them, but they all look totally different and unique and you conveyed their real look very well.
And I love the symbolism in the title. <3

It's also impressive how long you drew at that picture. You really have perseverance, hooves down.
You should rename yourself from AssasinMonkey to AssasinMachine, because you are like a machine when you draw something. xD

If there was a scene from the show to cap your season four art, this is it.

I like the face designs, very square.

It was a real treat to see your season four finale art. Not only did you capture the scenes with magnificence, it was fun reliving the scenes on a weekly basis like this through your images.

Yea, I initially did have them a with a bit more green mixed through the blue (not a lot but a bit), then I ended up making an adjustment layer that removed a lot of green everywhere which I think turned it fully into blue.
A slight overlook on that part I guess.
