In answer to your question, I would have to call this a cute. It's to nice to be a fail, but it left me wanting a little more, keeping it from a solid win.

If I was to describe what I am seeing in one sentence it would have to be, "I want more detail!" This style I have often seen with one-character portraits or even scenic shots overlooking something. There the bright and mixed colors can compliment the beauty or grace of what is being depicted. When I firs saw this one, I wasn't sure what to feel.

The focus seems to be on an interaction with Lyra and BonBon, but the interaction is centralized with enough room to show the trees and houses surrounding them. On the trees and houses, the technique is very nice. But I caught myself saying "What the hell is going on here?" Zoomed in I could see that Lyra must have been sleeping in the hammock when BonBon came and knocked her off or something. I feel like more detail to the design of the characters and the situation was called for.

I am not trying to be harsh or overly critical. I can tell the artist has a lot of skill and knows how to apply it. But with everything I get to critique I want to love it. And, all in all, I like this one. That's the thing though, I only like it.

Till your next deviation,

I hope she just lands back in the hammock!
And then she can berate Bon Bon in comfort.

I'm a little confused as to what's happening. Did Bon Bon just headbutt her out of the hammock, or is she just floating, or what?

headbutting but i added no speed lines to show shes just being kicked ^^; just for more realism or as real as you get with coloured talking ponies lol
