...:iconmotherofgodfaceplz: Now for critique... The vision for this is clear enough: Rainbow looking quite terrifying, using the scary demeanour instead of in your face horror. Originality is good, using your own style of colouring and design, with a large amount of the focus going into the single bloodshot eye. Technique is... Sketchy. The pick I have with this is that some of the colouring looks... Blotchy in places, mainly on the flank and fore hoof. That said, the way you have styled the mane and tail are good, and the ear is fluffy. I like the ear a lot :meow: Impact overall: Very original, using your own style to make a very simple yet effective horror piece. The colouring is a bit off in areas, and you may want to add more definition to the wing, it blends in with the coat slightly making it hard to see. That aside, I do like the detail you put into the eye, and the smaller details such as the ear, the tail and even the dark hoofs are well placed. Overall, great piece :iconrainbowdashlaplz:

yay! havent done one of these in a while... okay:

I gave the vision an all-star grade, it's plain to see what your'e aiming for: A grotesque-horrified Rainbow Dash. Her expression rather complements the quote you made for her.

"Go ahead, leave me... I never liked you anyway."

I think it terrifies her that someone would leave her, of all mares/colts. And with her personality and all.

We can notice all of the anatomy and whatnot, but one thing that butted me was her front legs; I think you should make the line between them more... solid? I thought you just made one really huge, weird-lookin' leg. I'm diggin' the glossiness you added to her coat and not that you overdid it with the fanciness.

My score for originality is just a four. Mainly because we've all seen grimdark pictures of all the characters (not all, but most) and it doesn't really bother most people like it should. The design is different, like all pieces, which I like that you do. You changed it up a bit. You put more of a terrified look on Rainbow's face rather than a terrifying glare. It inspires me to imagine what it couldve been, and the quote along with it.

Technique! Yes! I think it's absolutely perf, that you have mixed so many styles with your own. I like how you kept your anatomy all the same, but added different shading techniques onto it. Is that what it is? The red in her eyes makes them look bloodshot, but it seems as if she's crying. The unruly feathers give a disheveled look to her, making her look startled. You made all the little things match the quote and facial expression, which is pretty cool.

The impact, however, didn't impact me as much. It strikes me the same as what I said in the Originality paragraph. It's just that we've all seen at least five grimdark pics, and it doesnt surprise the normal Brony anymore. Overall, I'd give this a 4.5 in stars. Great job bruh, hope to do another Critique sometime!

LOVING this series. Very creepy and cool. The reflections of red (or pink, I guess) in her face and joints is harrowing for some reason. Great job with the sheen and eerie texturing.

Oh that's not fair Dash, I don't even want to go to work, but I have to, or, you know, I'd be homeless. But I'll be back later... oh alright I'll bring cider too.
