This actually looks pretty amazing. I wish I can critique it and give it my sincere thoughts. So here it is. I'll put em all in a comment and you can tell me what you think.
CRITIQUE: "This artwork potraying Trixie in the coastal city, it actually looks really stunning! Now, as I am a Trixie fan myself, I, for one, actually love the presentation and the lighting that is displayed in this artwork. What I also like about this is the water, if some can't tell, you can see little reflections of the lights and it's also blurred, kinda resembling a water portrait, which is not an easy thing to do with novice artists. You were able to capture it just right to make it more realistic and it also matches well with the title. I also like how the characters drawn in the photo, like for instance Trixie. I like how it closely resembles the show, but looking as if years had passed and how they look different from the shows counterparts, it's like a newer generation of the MLP Show, except calling it 5, it looks more like Generation 4.5. It's pretty fascinating. But the thing I mostly like about this is the lighting, now, I've seen so many things which had really impressive flash lighting, like the animations and pictures created by Proxicide. A animator on Newgrounds responsible for making the MK vs. SF animations. The lighting in this artwork closely resemble his, but this is actually much more stunning, from a realistic point of view. This includes the little fireflies that I see from the glowing butterfly and the lantern. It actually looks very beautiful. I could actually recommend this as a daily deviation. So, don't stop making more of this amazing art, I know you have the inspiration and the courage to do so. Good job, keep going, and you'll shine on. "
Incredible! The lighting, reflections on the water; the way the ship in the background is slightly blurred and the layout of it all gives such a sense of depth and atmosphere. Very reminiscence of Pirates of the Caribbean, and not just due to the setting but also the way the piece 'feels'. I also love the way that the butterfly is illuminating the... eh... character... on the water, very mystical.
Oooooooooo, I love pics that feature lanters in the darkness! It's a nice test of an artist's ability to recreate the diffusing of light around the source in a dark environment. Not to mention that it's suuuuuuper pretty <3
