#Traditional #Discussion #Critique wanted

So I'm doodling up a picture for the daughter of a friend (she really likes Rainbow Dash) figured I'd upload what I've got done so far. This is the basic penciled version, I'll be inking it and coloring it (colored pencils) and maybe a few other things.

I'm aware that its not perfect, RD seems to have a bit of a long neck here and the tree in the background isnt in the best perspective but I'm willing to maybe make some corrections.

What do you think, /art/ ?

I really like it! Interesting setting and I like the cross hatched shading. Looks real nice with the colors. And my god those plants, you definitely know what you're doing.

I'm not sure if the calligraphy style you used to write her name really suits her character, but that's whatever, it will still look good. Neck is a little weird in the back but it works because of the way it looks like she's leaning forward.

The girl who is getting this is lucky!

The location has a lovely fairytale feel. I like the texture on her hair/feathers/coat/eyes. The white void beyond the tree is conspicuously blank, but it's not particularly detrimental. A little distracting maybe, since blank space draws the eye.

I kinda figured... it's to predict what an artist plans on doing, so I stick to commenting on the work as is, and avoid making assumptions.

Also: always nice to see another traditional artist on the board. X3

I may or may not touch it up a bit. But as for now, I feel its ready to be called 'Done.'
