Giggling at the Ghosties by Noben Giggling at the Ghosties by Noben
From season 1 episode 2.

More artings for myself again. Giggle at the ghosties! This scene stands out the most to me from S1 E2. It showed Pinkie Pies character traits shining thru. Some folks tend to groan at her songs, but I enjoy them. And really, did anyone else notice how cute it is when she gets all up in the camera and goes "SOOOOOO!" and goes into the chorus? I did, and I love it. The expression is to die for.

Anyway, this is my interpretation of Twilight's disbelief at Pinkie Pie's bardic powers while the group traveled thru the Everfree Forest. It ended up being a little more cluttered than I prefer, but I stuck with it til the end and am really proud of how it turned out. The background was my fave part to create, but I gotta hand it to Pinkie Pie's hair, it was very fun to render. I like to draw with the approach that it consists of cotton candy, bubble gum and a very talented pink balloon animal.

Around 6 to 7 hours, mostly Paint Tool SAI.

Eee! Made the banner on FimFicion! omg that's just awesome, thank you. <3

The shadowing and lighting is amazing, it all flows with every characters emotions and personality, while the background is dark and the trees have a dark persona to them, rainbow dash has one wing that seems to be out of place, and the lighting does not match that done with Raritie's and Twilight's, she looks much more lit up, which gives the 2nd tree dimension, and pinkie has a sort of aura that seems to expand light and happiness around even though the light is focused on her. That said the background does not match the style of the rest of the piece, as well as the 2nd tree does not have near as much detail as any other character in this, Fluttershy seems to be placed out of the piece on purpose and although fits personality, she does not seem to have been given the consideration and attention to detail as everyone else. Overall this is an extraordinary piece in my amateur eye, and it simply sings to me I love all of the characters, I wish I had the time to learn to draw like this. good job
What do you think?

At first glance, I knew what this was. Giggle at the ghostie! The lighting and shadows are amazing done well. The ponies expressions are hilarious and fit their personalities. I also love how Fluttershy is in the back and is frighted the most. It is just like her. My only complaint is the mane on Twilight and Apple Jack seem a little too foreign. But I could be wrong perhaps you were trying to do something a little more original. Rarity's face and eye also seem to be a little off. Rarity's eyes have a little bit more lashes than the other ponies. Seems to look like some other pony with out them. Other than that, there is nothing to hard to judge to give constructive criticism. Good Work! And continue your art!

During the first two seasons I thought Pinkie seemed to shallow to be considered sane,
during the third season I finally saw there was more to her than meets the eyes.

Oh wow...
So much right with this picture...
I'm going to skip right past skill, because it is readily apparent that you have much.
You've captured Pinkie's exuberance perfectly - the trademark huge smile, the bouncing pronk... I already have Giggle at the Ghosties playing over and over in my head.
And then just when I got over that; Twilight's expression. :3 This piece is gorgeous. Thank you for making my day.

Also... manes. Especially Applejack's and Pinkie's. So much win ^_^
