Save the Queen by RegolithX Save the Queen by RegolithX
-- I just completed reading all the issues of the official MLP comic. Truly wonderful pieces of art that will leave you wide eyed and laughing your ass off. This particular project was inspired by the most recent issue [Issue 7]. I had planned on coloring/vectorizing this, but I just couldn't. I dare say it still turned out acceptable.

If you're not up to speed with the official comics, you need to be. Truly extraordinary. Wonderfully drawn, written, and organized. You can find them on youtube if you don't want to shell out the dough on iTunes.

Very well done. You evidently know what you are doing. I assume you are going to add color adventually? But even with out it is very good.
This is more of a suggestion, but when( or if ) you add color are you going to refract the light off or through the jules in her hair and through the window?
Also is the window going to have an image in it or just regual stained glass. If you add something it could make every thing around it "pop" out.
But either way it still looks very nice and I hope it comes out the way your want it to.

Geez its always the amazing artist that ask for Critique it makes it so hard for me to write anything negative about it. I mean this is almost flawless.

I can only find nit picky stuff, the worlds more nit picky of all the nit picky nit pickers and ways here I go

1 spike's shadow is a lot less dark then rarity's yet they are in the same room

2 Rarities dress appears to be going to her right side if you look at the back section the the dress its draging on the floor close to us then her right most hoof.

3 you seem to be shading a bit for colors with the window and rarity's hair yet spike is all the same "color"

4 the bottom of rarity's eye are smugged a bit. (this maybe tears of joy.

Wow i don't even know if I should post this I mean the art is beautiful and all I can do is nit pick.

I mean you should be the one critiquing me not the other way around.

I think this is a great piece of art! now having said that I think you might have miss tagged this art. It looks very much like a Digital art piece not a Traditional one. Then again there are AMAZING people out there who can do digital quality work with a pen and pencil and you may be one of these people. If you are Hats off to your skill (but it really does look way to clean and crisp for hand made art), if not please change the tag to digital art.

I honestly don't know what half the categories mean. If it's not obvious I have very little formal training...

yea sorry if i came off rude. I really wasn't trying to be. I just try to search by the traditional category to find other artists who do their art with out digital media to ease the process. It is a harder when a single mistake can ruin your whole drawing and you have to start all over instead of hitting the undo button. Not that there is anything wrong with digital media! There are some AMAZING pieces of art that would take an unrealistically long period of time to do by hand for the same great quality. This piece is a great example of that. ^_^

"Save the Queen" reminds me of a sword in Final Fantasy Tactics. Now I have a picture of Spike wielding said sword against a horde of Diamond Dogs... Not a bad way to start the day.

The raw lines are really very good. You could still color in layers, even with the in-depth shading. Ah, but it looks great even in black and white!
I'm guessing this came from the Nightmare Rarity stuff?

Yup, her dress and some of the elements of the throne room were drawn based on the comic.

One of the issues is up on Imgur (Issue #1) in full quality, but I just read the rest via youtube (posted in desc). There is a significant loss of quality, but at least you still get to read them.

I literally just got done watching the YT version of the first issue. If I learned anything, my patience for getting these comics for myself is really starting to wear thin. That, and to never abduct the CMC. Looking at the link you just sent me, I can confirm that you are totally right about the quality drop.
