Two Sides of a Coin by HannahCW
Perhaps my favorite aspect of the drawing is the coloring of Pinkie Pie's mane and tail. I love your decision to make how exuberant and full of life she is. Though I'm a little disappointed in the way Pinkamena's hair looks. Even though the saturation has been toned down, I don't like how it still shimmers. Pinkamena is supposed to be a miserable mare. Having her hair shimmer like that doesn't exactly signify her melancholy. Eliminating them entirely would benefit her design. On top of that, I'm not really for the black and white background. I do appreciate the idea of the colors blending to indicate the different sides they're on, but I wouldn't use those colors if I were you. I would try using the traditional colors of pink. Maybe there could be hot pink on Pinkie's side, and very dark pink on Pinkamena's side. It's be kind of similar to what Captainsnarkyninja did with his version of this idea. Lastly, make sure that Pinkie is moved more towards the right side, because her tail seems to be a bit on the dark side. This piece is not at all bad. It has decent line work, you display both personalities pretty well, and what you did with the coloring on each pony was pretty clever. There are just some aspects that I think need a little tweaking. Still, I advise you to keep up the tremendous work, HannahCW!
RainbowDash by SiMonk0
Well I must say that this is one of the most interesting renditions of the bat version of Rainbow Dash, or as uotapo likes to call her, Rainbow Bite. There are several things that I admire about this design, like how it mostly follows the design of Flutterbat from the actual show. The coat is nicely darkened, the eyes are piercing red, and the mane and tail are nice and messy. I also like the new features you gave her, like the pointy wings. On top of that, I appreciate how you slightly enlarged the hair, because it sort of indicates how long RB has been living as a wild creature. The criticisms I have for this drawing are only minor. Firstly, I would raise her right hindquarter higher, because for now, her behind appears to be pretty lopsided. Second, I would still give her a cutie mark, but it should be something much spookier, because notice how Flutterbat's cutie mark changed from butterflies to bats. Maybe you could change the color of the bolt from rainbow to yellow, like a real bolt, that way, it would come off as more threatening. But other than that, I think this is a fine drawing of Rainbow Bite. your goal was to create a spooky, lineless picture of RD as a bat, and that's exactly what you produced! Keep up the great work, SiMonk0!
