The amount of detail is pretty amazing to look at, I won't lie. However, the amount of detail seems rather unfitting with the vector used here. Vectors don't have a great amount of detail - in this case, we have an outline with solid blobs of color. Wild Fire looks very out of place in a world with so much detail (especially with that 3D model you used for the mountain).

I draw my ponies with a level of detail that is a higher level than a regular old vector, but there are times where I look at my work,and tone down the level of detail. I've learned from personal experience that details do not always add to an art piece. It's pretty much the point I would bring up to this critique. I believe that future wallpapers you make might feel more coherent (for a lack of a better term) if you tone down the level of detail.

Would your future wallpapers look better with a lower level of detail? Well, only one way to find out!

Details aside, I thought it was very weird having Wild Fire stand on a mountain looking down to Canterlot. We all know Canterlot as a place that is really high in the mountain, so I felt that her placement was a little silly. xD Not sure what other people feel about this, but it came off to me as weird.
What do you think?

That's what I love in our fandom. We always treat the staff of the show so well. :D Well done :iconoctaviaclapplz:

Also... I've seen this pony before.... wasn't she in the Canterlot Wedding arguing with some colt, then Cadence shot them with a heart? (or something like that)

You've been making a lot of these o_O

IMO, I'm not much for these special effects you just love to use a hell-of-a-lot though. The amount of details feels to me as a bit overwhelming. This is coming from a pixel artist though, haha :D

Yeah, I'm an art student basically majoring in Visual Effects/Motion Graphics, so I tend to favor these things a LOT, combining special effects with both 2D vector art and 3D Modeling art (the mountains you see in my wallpapers are 3D Models I make from scratch) :P

Of course, I'm going to be trying out a few new styles and techniques in the near future, as I try to mix it up, and try new things whenever possible. ^_^

Well, when I draw ponies, there have been times where I look at my work and decide to tone down the level of detail I put in my hair. The art style of ponies we've grown an emotional attachment are simple vectors; details might not help us all the time.

Doesn't seem a bit strange that you have a simple vector - something that's basically an outline with solid colors, but you have a great level of detail in your mountains? I dunno if toning down the level of detail would actually help (maybe it wouldn't), but who knows?

Just my two cents. Too afraid to put that in a critique as it would attract too much attention :x

I can totally see where you're coming from :) The only thing I really add to the vectors are the lighting changes. I try to light/shade the characters to give them more depth and dimension.

and if you were to put that in a critique, I would approve it in a heartbeat; I'm always open to ideas and looking for ways to improve my work ^_^
