A Ponyville Noon by Stinkehund A Ponyville Noon by Stinkehund
Alright, noon-version. Noon..ish, anyway. Well, daytime.

I'll just wait for someone to point out the obligatory obvious giant error i made so i can correct it.
And btw, final psd is about 840mb and 500 or so different layers - i almost gave Photoshop a heart-attack with that picture.

This is incredibly beautiful due to realistic shading and wonderfully bright sky.

In this picture, Rarity has lifted up Pinkie Pie while carrying some items via magic as Derpy watches them, Rainbow Dash is sleeping next to the chimney on the roof, Lyra Heartstrings has her hind-legs put into the water of the fountain, a cloud that Raindrops and her friend are moving is soft and fluffy and I see Spike holding up a sack with something inside.

The magic Rarity uses is shiny with glitter like the night-sky with hundreds of stars. I see Doctor Whoof behind a part of the house and Cherry Berry with a fancy outfit on :D

This picture is truly a marvelous painting, as all of yours are.

I love how in each of these paintings you put ponies going about their business, such as Rarity doing work and Spike helping her, with Pinkie caught in a magical bubble, but still being cheerful. And that it's not just the mane six and Spike, but the background ponies as well. I really like being able to see what would most likely be going on in Ponyville. The characters and their behaviors are believable and suit them in these pictures. And I also enjoy the colors in this painting, they’re very believable and-for lack of a better word-colorful. And I especially love how you did Rarity’s magic effects, it’s really beautiful and has a magical feel, just as it should.

However, I personally feel that this is a bit too bright, in regard to the shading. It just seems it’s not relaxed enough, like the sun is really powerful and intense. Considering this is a painting of a calm day in Ponyville, I just think the shading needs to be a little more relaxed and less intense looking.

That being said, I love this painting and your other paintings. Anyone can tell you’ve put a lot of work in these, and they come out truly beautiful. Keep up the good work! :)

I was looking for an "essential ponyville" picture... and boy did I find it. Sadly, now I feel like I can't possibly make a ponyville that could ever live up to yours ;_; this is perfect. It's vivid like a dream, so beautiful I could cry... I reach to my screen wishing it could take me within. You have summoned the *soul* of this town here for us. Thank you so much.

I don't know what I'd do if I woke up and found a Rainbow Dash on my roof. Where is Rarity going with Pinkie Pie? Can just imagine that shopping list!  

What was the error by the way, I didn't see it

I think it is a bit too bright. You could make it more acceptable by reducing strengh of glow.

Several details I love about this pic more than others.

Firstly, Dash is still sleeping. Secondly, bridle-wearing mare on the right. Third, the lighting in this is REALLY good in paying attention to the sun in relation to the shade. REALLY nice work I have to say.

Hello there!

This is a wonderful representation of ponyville! I would be honored if you would give me permission to use this as the cover art of a new song I have composed. I will give you full credit for the art, because I'm no corporate asshole. The song is a House song. (like deadmau5 or Tycho) I will write the name of the song and my musician name under that on top of the picture, but it will NOT cover the view of this amazing piece of art. I will possibly write it in the eastern sky area, to give you an idea of what it will look like. I thank you for your time and wish you luck on your future art!

Pinkie hijacked her magic for some reason. I don't think Rarity even noticed her.

After looking at all 4 of the progression, I have to ask... does Pinkie EVERY sleep? She's wide awake in all four pictures!

That said, the series is fantastically done. Excellent work.
