Seeing the Stars by JitterbugJive Seeing the Stars by JitterbugJive
This was a huge commission but it's DEFINITELY worth posting. I actually dotted every. single. star. by hand.
2 hours of drawing nothing but STARS. sfsfsgdhghg

This piece of art was remarkably drawn. The colors are strong, the imagery is beautiful, and it drives a very strong sense of adventure into the hearts of anyone who views this photo. There is also the fact that a person can just look at this photo and feel the imagination and the hard work that went into this photo. I, myself, have seen many pieces of art like this, but the power of the photo was never as strong as this. If I can say anything, it is this: this artist has done remarkable pieces of art, and I will continue wanting to see more.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
12 out of 12 deviants thought this was fair.

First off, I wanna say that I really like the drawing. The amount of detail in the background is amazing, especially the stars. Looks wonderful. However, some of the astronomical objects (the sun especially) seem slightly out of place, and I believe fewer could have been used to get the same effect. But maybe that's just me :shrug:
Other than that, the background looks great. However, it contrasts a tad with the line-arted ponies. A simpler background (which would be a shame) or softer lines for the ponies would have blended better.

Moving on to the TARDIS and our ponies itself, I wanna start of by saying that they too look great. There's just a few minor things that seem off. The Doctor's muzzle seems too "square-ish", and Ditzy's left front leg seems to bend slightly in the wrong direction. Other than that, Ditzy turned out great (especially wings and face). There's something about the Doctor's hind that I cannot quite put my finger on, though. Might be the line that connects the belly to the right hind leg.

The tilt of the TARDIS seems slightly out of place due to the fact that the ponies are not tilted at all. I believe a TARDIS facing the screen directly would have worked better here.

Originality doesn't get full score simply because I've seen other pictures like this floating around, though this one has by far the best execution. Also, commissions are commissions. Technique gets negatively impacted by the things I pointed out about the ponies and TARDIS, though the quality of the background makes up for it.

To review, splendid work on the background and only minor technical issues with the ponies and the TARDIS.
The drawing in overall greatly represents the spirit of the adventures of Ditzy and the Doctor, and easily earns a place in my favs.
Great job!

Derpy is the luckiest Mare in the entire universe. How many other stallions can show her such wonders across all of time and space?

Please allow me to say that ever second of those two hours are greatly appreciated. This picture became all that I hoped it would be, and I knew it was a magnificent idea to request a commission from you the second that I figured out I could have a custom wallpaper for my Focus's MyFordTouch. I took a picture of what it looks like in the display on my car if you would like to see how it transferred over.

PS:To any other Bronys that have a MyFordTouch this image only needs to be re-sized down to 800x384 for it to be usable on your display as a wallpaper.

This drawing is among the best that you have made. Not only the stars, the comet, and all, but also the characters. You can clearly see that Ditzy is absolutely amazed and the Doctor is simply, "I've seen it so many times, but it's still beautiful." Not to mention the TARDIS. The shading in this entire work of art is spectacular. The planets and other space wonders are all extraordinarily well done. My favorite planet is the "Saturn" one. I am not entirely sure if I am correct on it being Saturn, though. Even so, it's wonderful. Amazing work
