Oh gosh, you landed on in my deviations critique stack again. Well. Here we go! So, I really do like this deviation. The setting is smooth, and the atmosphere brings a feeling to the piece. Once again, I'm a pain in the ass about originality, and running a brony group at my school the Rainbow dad thing is starting to feel overplayed for me, however, I give points again for speed as well as the fact that it's something different. It's also different to see his personality less than happy.
In terms of vision however, I have the same notes, I feel some shadowing and darkening can be done, maybe a little (italics on little) more detail to the ground but that's nit-picky and maybe an atmosphere swap. I love the ripple created from the water as well as the lengthening as it approaches the camera, it makes the piece unique IMAO and also gives the the feeling. (also like the longer leg style, gives a unique look)
Note: It's remarkable (you noted this last critique) that you do these on mspaint. I can't to nothing on paints platform (I personally use

Well. This is a really good picture. This picture is supposed to be sad and made me sad. The water effect if really neat and adds a realistic quality to the picture. Don't steer away from pictures that give feels. They may make people sad but are still enjoyed. Keep up this fantastic work and I hope to see more work this this from you in the future. I don't have much else to say but like I said this picture is great and keep up the great work. I find is interesting that as soon as the episode RD's implied dad appeared, pictures of him have spreed like wildfire on DeviantART.

I love the  water effect the most,
Also how you made the cloud low to the ground as if sad and miserable,
I would really like to know how to do this, Because I soon want to become a Animator c:
Over all, Very wonderful job.

Yay someone noticed how low it was! :dummy:


Thank you so much!

It was quite simple really, you do your picture and then upload it to Lunapic. You then add a water affect. ^^
