The usual, another episode piece!
This one has been quite enjoyable, both the art and the episode.

Was fun to see Fluttershy really go all in singing, just having a fun time. That's the best kind I'd say. Just the pacing and everything was great as always but also the continuity.
Plus good music to listen to again, new genre as well right? (Big Mac singing!)

Anyhow, the arts. Kept it a bit rougher considering there were 5 almost full body ponies to be made. Did close all their eyes though hehe. Trying to put the most dynamic in Fluttershy's pose, putting her flank up just as it seemed she liked to do. Still also trying to give the other some interesting poses.

Not sure about the foreground... did have to include AJ, because AJ. Kinda hoping that part just gets overlooked at first haha, at least the focus area seems ok.


Approx time: 10 hours

Once again, another superb pic. However, I wish you had used stronger shadows on the faces of the ponies that were singing, in particular the right side of Fluttershy's face (her right, not ours) and Big Mac's face in general. For a reference of what I'm speaking of, look at your previous pic, "The Core Of The Apple." The shading on Bic Mac's face is much stronger there as well as just the shading in general. The shading in the front is pretty strong of course, alas, it may be too strong as it's hard to see the animals and the ponies in front. Then again, you may have done this on purpose to keep the focus on the ponies on the stage. Superb pic overall.
What do you think?

In Bioshock Infinite, due to time travelling anomalies (too complex to explain here) there ended up being an a capella group covering God only Knows in 1912. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ybvruz… www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1i8QT…

So, for this episode, I would have loved it if The Pony Tones covered Good Vibrations totally A Capella. www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL75Oa…

Ah, there is the masterpiece, finally I can look at it!

And wow, there are much more details, than were there when I left the stream!
Your art always looks like those old paintings you can find in museums from various renowned artists of the past!
Fantastic, it's almost unbelievable that someone can do that with digital drawing!
Also, nice touch with the animals on the right side of the audience!
And congratulations to the header of yesterday's Drawfriend Stuff!

Wow that's amazing!  I love all the, what looks like, flower petals all around.  The posing on all the singing ponies is wonderful.  Fluttershy looks like she's been caught mid dance which was so her by the end, regardless of her stage fright  The outfits are so darling, again Rarity did a fantastic job on them, no doubt. ^_^  The lack of Pinkie Pie is okay for me hehe  I like seeing Rainbow, Twilight and AJ in the crowd, along with a few small critters.   Very neat art! :D
