I honestly had to laugh the first time that I saw this! The exaggerated expressions that you designed the characters with puts this piece over the top and just really brings the piece to life in a great way! I also appreciate your spot on character design as well as the brilliant line shading which is a shading style that I have honestly not seen for a long time! The traditional shading is also done very well and makes the piece very fluid! This is a fantastic work of art and I really hope to see more of your art in the near future! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

The Artist thought this was FAIR
29 out of 29 deviants thought this was fair.

Let me begin by saying that it took me almost 20 minutes to stop laughing at the expressions on Big Mac and Apple Bloom's faces. I have no idea what could be responsible, and I'm not entirely sure I want to... But I'd wager that either Rarity or Dash are involved and did something that caused AJ to snap like a starving tiger on cocaine.

Anyway, on to the critical stuff. I love the strong colors and clean lines. The use of old school line shading was also a nice touch. I don't think I've ever seen both it and the more pronounced shadows used together before.

Top marks all the way around. Vision, Originality, and Impact because of the expressions. I've had a couple of those moments in life where there simply are no words in any language I know, and an expression like that is all there is. I've even inspired a couple of those moments myself...

Technique for the mix of shading styles and lack of clutter that really makes said expressions that much more dramatic.
