Cuddle Grump by CaptainPudgeMuffin Cuddle Grump by CaptainPudgeMuffin
While secretly a lover of cuddles, Dashie doesn't like being carried.

EDIT: Tweaked some details based on critiques. Thank you to those of you that critiqued. Though painful to read, they are helpful.

Some scores are a little off due to touchscreen and tiny interface, but key being I really like this.

Positives: pretty much everything. Your posing and shading is great! The expressiveness makes it easy to see what's going on here. I think the scene is really calming and gives me a positive feeling. The proportions and details on the ladies is especially strong for instance how Twilight human is leaning back to hold RD pony's weight.

What I might have done differently: There is something about the human eyes that seems off. On twilight, I think there might be a problem with the positioning... too far forward or too high? I'm not really sure. For human RD, it seems to me that the eye angles aren't consistent. Flatish on the right eye, but tilted more upward on the right.

For pony twilight, her horn is more pointy than I like (seems very sharp and dangerous). I think her wings should be a little lower on her body (behind the leg more rather than on her back). She seems a little long in the belly too. Her rum should be a little closer to human RD. Her front hooves seem too short and I think it's because you're missing a joint. Even if you want to represent the leg as being straight and not show the second joint, it definitely should be longer or more bulbous perhaps?

The last thing I'll say is that the picture would definitely have more punch with a detailed background. Put something on those shelves to hint at the situation. Is this in an apartment with food up there? A vet with medicines? Personally, I can undrstand why after all the work you put in already you may not have had the stamina for more! In any case I faved it and I don't do that lightly so the most important takeaway is that I really like what you've done :)

I really like the artwork with idea behind this. Having Dash acting grumpy/annoyed since she is being carried while it looks like her human version is about to laugh at the whole situation. All the while Twilight is oblivious and enjoying herself.

I haven't seen alot of with dash being annoyed, so this idea is rather new to me and i really like it.

I love the art style here. Theres alot of detail with the human versions such as the facial features like the expression I mentioned earlier of human dash. Even the hair has a nice texture look to it. The human Twilight, although limited in facial, has the same hair technique, which I also like. However, there is something going on with her hair at the bottom of the cupbaord. The shirts are also nicely done with the way they sag and meld with the pose of each person. As for Dash and Twilight, I am a big fan of the ponies having a bit of fluffiness added to them. Their expressions are also very well done with Dash looking annoyed since shes all scrunched up and Twilight enjoying her petting. I also like how her face moves along human Dash's hand. The shadows are also nicely done.

The only issue I have with this is the background. It seems a little dull and the fact it seems to be having an effect on human Twilight's hair.

Other than that, this is a great work of art!
