CMC Storytelling Time by Ruffu CMC Storytelling Time by Ruffu
Another Fluttershy one. This time, Fluttershy's telling a story to the Cutie Mark Crusaders after an unfortunate blackout all through Ponyville.

I tried a different way of painting in this one. Safe to say, this way takes a long time to get things done. Or maybe, I'm just not that experienced in it yet.

Oh well, anyways, enjoy ^_^!

Not bad, pretty good infact, but some things to me dont look right. I think Fluttershies ear is a bit small (almost the same size as the CMCs), Fluttershies eyelashes are the only dark and clean lines in the entire piece and its very noticable to me, Fluttershies and Scootaloo's head anatomy is really round and while it can be a good design choice it looks a bit egg like in this setting (Fluttershy's ear fix might correct this but used have to see, also Scootaloo's nose is scrunched).

The good things I like to point about about this piece that I like are that the grainy paint style gives alot of character to this piece especially the use of the warm and cool colors, AB and SB's anatomy choice/perspective (AB's bow might be covering SB's chin but it works out really well imo), the inclusion of the background objects and their design (minus the certains, their to straight but nicely shaded), the use of character and object placement though not sure if it was intentional (the eye follows/goes in a circle between Fluttershy(some backand forth between she and the window), the candle, and the CMCs, and ends at the wall (which is dark and emtpy but not void which adds to the atmosphere)).
