Well, this was certainly more than I expected from the thumbnail that I saw in my notification queue. Now that I get a good look at it, I love the concept and it certainly presents a great tone for something like a cover art, like you said it was for. the brush technique you used for the background and the giant monster thing are quite suited for it, and I love it. the ominous looking mountains on the right hand side add more to the sinister feel of the pic as well that gets denoted from whatever it is that giant creature is. My only problem with the picture thus far as I can tell is that the expression on Twi's face that doesn't seem to fit the atmosphere of seeing a creature who's forehead alone is quite obviously much larger than the mountains. I can't see any kind of eye detail at all that would add to the expression, though the mouth is in a great shocked form for the side view of her head that you went with. I'm sure there was a reason for this, and I won't question your judgement on the matter, but it just seemed odd to me.

So, as follows, for vision, I'll give a 5 because this was an amazing piece that was awe inspiring to see. For originality another 5, seriously, have you seen anything else with this kind of context to it? I haven't! Technique, once more, a 5, ad the brush style is impressive and I love the look of it overall. Impact I'm going to dock to a 4.5 because of the expression on Twi's face, it just seems that it's lacking in some way and it takes away from the picture as a whole for me.
What do you think?

You have succeeded in interesting me in that book. Beautiful drawing, with a giant creature that actually looks giant.

I don't like the way Twilight looks so much, but overall, it's a really damn nice picture.

Oh jeez.  That creature is freaking awesome.  EVERYPONY'S MAKING ME LOOK PATHETIC!!!  *feels the voice start to take over*

 

*tries to fight it off* But I'm sure that you were feeling the exact same things I am right now.  I will get to be able to do this one day.  That I can promise.  But of course, the only thing that can compare to this picture right now, is my fanfic I called The Legends of Equestria.  I'm now on book two.  

*SPOILER ALERT*

 

*YOU WANNA KNOW?*

 

*YA SURE?*

 

*HERE IT GOES...*

 

I discover that Twilight Sparkle...  is my biological sister in my second book, and she plays a key role in the salvation of the universe as we know it, as well as her, I play a key role.

Yea, it was kinda buried among other booths. And it was really small, so I'm not surprised if you couldn't spot it.
