Oh wow. Let me just say first off, time well spent making this pixel. It's incredibly gorgeous, and the highlights along the hooves and especially in the mane and tail make the pony look alive and playful. Definitely adds a lot of luster. I'm very pleased with the color scheme of this pony as well; the highlights were expertly blended together. Multiple tones in the coat and mane make it appear more diverse and like I said before, alive! If I were to say one thing that was wrong with this piece, it would be a few proportional issues that I noticed in her neck and belly. However, this may have just been your specific style when it comes to drawing ponies, or the fact that she is turned at an angle and it wasn't quite right. Regardless, I'm giving a solid 5 1/2 stars on technique, if not for the astounding color alone. Anyway, amazing work, this is something to be proud of, especially with pixel art!
Thanks so much! I haven't pixeled in years so its so nice to get such positive feedback
i will agree her neck looks quite curvy and thin I would probably keep an eye out for that next time.
And to hear you like the character and colours, this if a first drawing of a new oc so i'm glad her design went down well.
And thanks so much for such a high scoring I really appreciate it!
