This day was going to be perfect... by ponyrake This day was going to be perfect... by ponyrake
The whole scene was just awesome. The song, the fight, Celestia's challenge. It was just wow.

I had to draw SOMETHING.

"I had to draw SOMETHING."

Man, don't I know that feeling.

And I really like this. If the rendering is more-sketch-like, the whole composition, including the figure's pose and staging is just perfect. The way you have the changelings' eyes glowing in the shadows as Chrysalis looks on triumphantly. My only complaint might be that the rest of the Celestia is so obscured it wasn't clear at first that Chrysalis was holding her by her hair. (Then again I've rushed and skipped over background details like that all of the time.)

Honestly, this wasn't a very well planned drawing. It looked much better in my mind than it did on canvas.

Especially months after the drawing was finished, finally I can look at it objectively and critique it.

There's plenty wrong with it, and I would like to have a redo of this drawing soon.

But thank you for your honest critiques.
