It's been a while since I commented on your work here: [link] and I came to do it again.

Something changed. Some of your next drawing weren't very good, with outstanding exceptions like this: [link] or this: [link] . Today I'm suprised how well this drawing turned out. I'm really astonished because something really changed.

First of all, no more trolls or creepy faces! The pony you've drawn is really natural, almost show-accurate with the nice proportions and face expression. The hair is well done with only a bit too high mane on her forehead, but I like it. The expression reminds me of manga, the gentre I like. You really did a great job with her body - it gives me an impression of depth, which is strenghtened by the clothes she wears. However, her ear line seems to be missing. And that's actually the only mistake of this pony. Well done again!

The chimney is smashing, especially the inside of it. It's such a shame you didn't do so many bricks outside, because they look fantastic. The depth it has been given by you is a proof that you can draw really good if you want to! Also the socks are a nice addition (and they are well done too!), with the "chimney tools" in the right part of the drawing. The more detail, the better. I like the rug too! It's not messed up at all and even it's perspective is correct, composing with the chimney!

The only thing I don't understand is why is Octavia so sad and why is she camping in the chimney? It makes me wonder what happened!

This drawing is really well done and it stands out in your gallery, so why do you have so little views on it? I think I see the overall problem of your drawings, which may be a suggestion on improving the quality of them. I might sound scary, but I think you underestimate the power of the lines, the strokes. It's visible mostly at the background, when instead of filling the objects lovingly, you just make a zigzags or fill them with random lines without caring that it could be done better! The good example of the right (in my opinion, of course) technique is [link] . You can see the pencils fill the whole characters, highlighting some points and making the objects rounder. Maybe you can model yourself on him and try to make your work more attractive? I personally think that this drawing doesn't have enough power to make people click on the thumbnail and see it's actually well done and it deserves a fav or a comment. With the nice background, not so "messy" lines (as I call random filling, don't worry) and even the adjusted brightness of the drawing you can attract a lot of viewers, just think about it.
