Applebloom Pixel Art by CellularSP Applebloom Pixel Art by CellularSP
It's an Applebloom!

I've felt like making a pixel art for a while now, I've just never gotten around to it. But now I have, and an Applebloom is the result.

Huzzah. And stuff.

Well they aren't TOO similar

Just the bow and being leader stuff

Applebloom isn't nearly as smart and doesn't have super powers

Well, very cute, indeed! I like this quite a lot, and must respect trying a sitting pose... it's something I've shied away from, myself.

It's not without points that could be improved upon though, I admit... I think most strongly... the bow didn't come out well, really. It kind of looks more like a hard plastic casing than an article of clothing, I'm sorry to say, with an odd and jagged pattern of shading. Rena mentioned her approval of the little bit of lighting on the inside of the bow, and I do second that, but the outside of the bow makes it awkward... but to conclude this topic, I will point out that it doesn't hugely detract from the work as a whole. It just makes itself look odd.

Rena also mentioned that the shading of her body and tail look confused and at odds with themselves and one another, and I must agree with that, too. I'll further say that I don't think that the white highlights on her coat really help much... to be honest, until I looked at it in a closer zoom, I didn't even realize that they were there.

Son of a... I need to remember that I don't need to use Ctrl+Enter for making new lines off of Trillian. Pardon me for that, please.

As a final point of (hopefully constructive) criticism, her facial proportions seem kind of off... her mouth is quite tiny and high on her snout, and her ear seems unusually small... and lacking shading. Shouldn't the indented inner portion of her ear be shadowed, here?

In conclusion, though I do point all this out, please don't take it as a blanket disapproval of the sprite! I really like it more than I've made clear, here. I especially like the shading on her tail, for instance! The... "hair lines" are curved very nicely and softly, the anti-aliasing working very well, and though it's a tiny thing, I really enjoy and approve of the bit of dithering on the bottom tip of the tail. It's just the perfect little touch.

I hope to and would be delighted to see more such work in the future! Good luck!

I will admit that the shading in some areas could definitely be improved upon- especially the bow and tail and hair and other small areas. I'm not the best at shading by any means... though still doesn't excuse my poor choices made here.

I personally don't think the small highlights take away from the piece too much (as you said you barely noticed them), but I'll take them away to see how it looks.

I'll also work on the face a bit as well.

I must say I'm surprised you like the tail- I think I did less than spectacular on that part. But thank you for the praise on it all the same.

I thank you for your feedback, and I'll be sure to work on this and hopefully not make the same mistakes on future pieces.

To be clear, I don't think that the highlights on her coat took away from anything as much as that, as I didn't even notice them, they didn't add anything. Perhaps it's just a case of them being more visible on your monitor than mine, though..

I hope that my comments haven't been a downer for you. I do truly think that this piece shows a great deal of improvement from you, that it is a worthy achievement! You should be happy with it, I think.

Ah, that makes more sense.

Downer? Nah. I really enjoy feedback like this, mostly because it can be hard to get at times.

Very cute and show-accurate! Though, I've been noticing this a lot lately, the join between the hip and the back leg looks a little jagged and off. Otherwise, your pony anatomy is spot-on and your shading excellent!

After looking at the reference again, it does look a big too jagged (especially for a small little pony!). I'll fix it up, and thanks for pointing that out.

Whooooa there. I saw this in a group and then I saw it a second time in my inbox and was like, which pixel artist do I watch that could have done this?

It's... it's good! I can't offer much specific criticism or suggestions for improvement, but I will outright praise the slightly lit insides of her bow, over mostly anything else, because that is something that can add a lot of effect to pixel art. The proportions and stuff are good... the dark spot at the bottom of her tail almost seems like the lighting is facing the opposite way. The shadow on her right front hoof also makes the lighting seem confused, since the light source is clearly in front of/above her, not below!

I know this isn't helpful as a statement, but this is overall very good while not being the cleanest or most polished piece, and to be further unhelpful I can say that you'd improve at it if you did more of them. Stuff like the lines, the outlines, the shapes and a few of the lighting shapes, as well as the shading contrasts... it's all very good, but it could just stand to be improved a little here and there, you know what I mean? Again, I know I'm not being helpful by saying this <_> I'd shape it up myself to show you an example of all the places I'd tweak, but I've got my hands full with like three things right at this moment, including a big art project I shouldn't be doing xD

Either way, ish good :iconrainbowdashsaluteplz:

Well it wasn't me :iconapplejacklieplz:

You say your words are unhelpful, but in truth they are actually very helpful! Honestly I really do agree with what you've said with the shading and the small things that could be fixed, especially with the tail. For the life of me I don't think I'll ever shade a pony tail correctly. I just don't think it's possible.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to write out a comment like this (especially when you have multiple things you're working on- dang!), it helps clarify certain things I don't feel 100% confident about and also lets me see things that should be obvious fixes but me being dumb can't see.

So again, thank you.

Also, best of luck on your things (especially the big art project)! Seems like you've got your hands full at the moment. Good luck, and godspeed.
