Next addition for my Season 5 Episode Art!
Season 5, Episode 24 - The Mane Attraction
For more info on my MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

This was such a great episode, a great last one by Amy Keating Rogers. She has given has awesome stuff, and may she be making even more awesome work with her next projects. It was a joy to watch, and to listen to the music. Which pushed me to make this piece. Also fun to have an episode with Lena Hall! Awesome voice for sure. I hope she enjoys officially being a pony now!

The light setting in this scene, though. When I started working on this I was worried about my approach, and I think the one I went with wasn't the most optimal approach, but I guess it worked? I need to do some more heavy spotlight pieces in this style.

Doesn't help I added that second butt light source to it :P (technicaly a 3rd on the other side). Her hair was puzzling me when I tried to translate it into this perspective, but that's usually with new ponies and designs.
In the end, it remains a Saturday stream, so a single session piece where time is somewhat limited. So depending on what I make, I can do more, but I always think back to what I did in previous ones.

Either way, it allows me to have different fun every week!
Talking about week... next one is going to probably going to be crazy, I might go into hiding until then...

I am afraid that my critique is not going to be very helpful, since nearly all I have for you and your work is praise alone.

I adore everything about this painting: from to the technique itself, through the color pallet, which emphasizes the mood of the scene, to the perspective you used. I especially love the way Rara’s Cutie Mark shines and the warm glow the light gives to the mare’s mane.

If I really have to complain about something, I will go with composition, since the bottom part of the picture seems a lot busier that the relatively empty top half. However, that is just plain nitpicking and overthinking on my side.

Overall, this is one of the best digital paintings I have seen recently and I love your My Little Pony FanArts (I hope that in future you will spoil us with some more of your original content, though).

Words don't even begin to describe this. You have done a wonderful job. You always do. The colors, the lighting, the shading, her tears, her cutie mark... The list just goes on and on. I'm glad you were able to capture so much beauty.

This has become my new favorite episode of the series. Not only because of the introduction of a new character, as well as Lena Hall's performance, but because of the music and the writing. Amy Rogers Keating has given the fans so much. I'm glad she could go out on such a high note. She will be missed.

Admittedly this is probably my second favourite of Coloratura but by no means does that make it bad - I absolutely love this piece and I doubt that there is anyone who can give this a bad word 

Well Done 10/10

I think I nearly cried when I watched it the second time. That was the best musical performance of the show. Let's see now if it's going to be the most viewed MLP song on YouTube.

I can't deny it was funny to see the shock of the spectators who was expecting the Countess to the loving Rara.

Awesome work
