A Winter Stroll by Jamey4 A Winter Stroll by Jamey4
Dinky and Pipsqueak decide to take a stroll together through the snow on their way home from school. As the snow falls down more heavily, Dinky decides to light the way for them, while Pipsqueak is fascinated by her magical abilities. ;)
That's just my rough story for this piece, if you want to share your own interpretations, please do! :)

Okay, caught up (if slightly) with watch messages, so I can get around to actual critique.

To start of - the concept is quite charming; somehow it reminds me of the old, Disney movies, especially with the style you used for it. And that's not a bad thing; frankly the two have a lot in common, which makes this piece gently settle in its intended area.

The inspiration seems to be drawn from "Girl witch Matches", at least that's a thought that bloomed in my head as I saw this. The overall effect may not be anything new, but it does get the job done.

The technique itself is an intriguing manner; at first it seems simple and blurry with the lack of detail in the background, but that is spot on for the concept of two ponies walking through a blizzard with snow obscuring the view. The characters themselves, as mentioned earlier, give impression of being done in the style of the old, hand-made cartoons, which may sparkle a nostalgic feeling among the older viewers. The only, real downside to this may be the fact that the colt, at least in my opinion, looks a tad like a dog in stead of pony.

The impact of this piece may vary, dependable on the age of viewers; as I wrote, the older ones, how grew up on cartoons made up to late 80s may feel nostalgic about the style you used and MLP as a whole has a very similar basis as shows of the time. The younger ones may not understand that (which doesn't mean they won't), but even so one can appreciate the effect you got from the technique; especially the outcome of the blizzard is stunning, making the viewer feel like he's actually there (or at least observing the scene out the window). The emptiness in the back makes a great, symbolic add-on to the whole art.

Overall it's a job well done; seemingly simple and yet befitting the concept.
