~Let it all go...(listen to this: [link])

Phew... I think this is the fastest painting I've ever done. It still takes me about 3 days on and off, but still, it's pretty fast for me.

So, I took another shot on SAI and I told myself to stick with it until the end. With SAI and it's limited functions as compared to Photoshop, it allows me to make full use of the basic tools. I only did some colour corrections. coupled with some minor tweaks, at the very last minute.

I can't tell you how much I loved this picture. Even more so with the link to the music. I sat here and stared at the picture while listening to the music, and was entranced.

Bubbles. Love em. Excellent job on the textures and colors. I was going to give the Technique a 4 star, but since I do know the limitations of SAI, I knew how hard it is to make something like this.

The only thing I feel could use improvement, is that on some parts it looks like you colored (or blended) past the image you were working on. (Ex. Bottom right edge of the bubble Derpy is riding) It's nothing big, and actually fits the art style of this picture. I just did not feel it was intentional.

It is a work of art.

I LOVED your shading on this. This is a skill that is quite difficult to aquire, by the fact that you yourself need to visualise where the light strikes and where darkness is. The fact that its a bubble makes it even harder to shade but you made it feel like it was no big deal!

I love that gradient on how its moving away from darkness and derpy seems pleased. GREAT AND FABULOUS job on those bubbles, you made it seem like the real deal. There isn't much you need to work on here since its a simple picture and therefore, not many complications. It is also lovely on how you managed to draw that MANE! MY gosh, what brush did you use?

The impact of watching this along with the music is calming and marvelouslly stunning. I hope to find more credible art work like this.

The improvements you need to do might be depressions. Like if another bubble is hitting another bubble, theres a small depression it it. other that that, YOU DESERVE A FAVOURITE.
