Ponies at the Zoo by anttosik Ponies at the Zoo by anttosik
Our heroes visit the Royal garden for lonely beings (AKA Celestia's Zoo). Trunk the wise elephant is too old to move anywhere else and here he is living well :)
This one actually made me very angry, because at one moment my .SAI file got corrupted - I couldn't open it at all. And I haven't saved it to any other media so it was gone. I also haven't exported it before, so it disappeared entirely.

Except low quality video-record from the streaming process. I then spend a few hours trying to printscreen random zoom-ups to get some pictures and then glued it together. I still had to repaint most of the image but I had the basics. Urght. It's so annoying, every single detail ... done. Therefore I'm sorry if there are some "low quality" spots. I tried my best repainting it :)

do ponies pet ponies in the petting zoo here?

I guess so ... if they agree ... do ponies pet their pets? They do. I think there are some pets to pet at the zoo :)

The drawings of the ponies do not like much, the design is quite poor, the elephant is also quite ... ugly. But the shadows, details, colors, truly a masterpiece, but above all I image alludes to hard work and a beautiful reward. Not convince me, but I like, I like.

Los dibujos de los ponis no me gustan mucho, el diseņo es bastante pobre, el elefante tambien es bastante... feo. Pero las sombras, los detalles, los colores, realmente una obra maestra, pero por sobre todo la imagen me alude a trabajo duro y una hermosa recompensa. No me termina de convencer, pero que me gusta, me gusta.

A comment with my own spanish lecture :D I like that idea of posting a comment in mother language also with the (not so proud of probably) translate :)

Is there anything in particular you find ugly? Or just all ponies all together?
And what do you think that is wrong with the design? :)

The design of the ponies do not like, I like to be more aesthetic, which is most noticeable in the hind legs, are usually thinner and more pronounced thigh. The eyes are bulging, you should not give so many shadows. And the elephant is very ugly and not know how to draw better, but has not been very good.
But again it's a good job, shows many beautiful things, hard work is one of them. The most significant of the image is the way shadows and color them, is just lovely and very great, it certainly is a rare talent.

El diseņo de los ponis no me gusta, me gusta que sean mas esteticos, donde mas se nota es en las piernas traseras, suelen ser mas delgadas y con el muslo mas pronunciado. Los ojos son muy saltones, no debiste darle tantas sombras. Y el elefante es muy feo, no sabria como dibujarlo mejor, pero no te ha quedado muy bien.
Pero repito que es un buen trabajo, demuestra muchas cosas hermosas, trabajo duro es una de ellas. Lo mas significativo de esta imagen es la forma en que sombreas y coloreas, es simplemente encantadora y muy genial, eso sin duda es un talento poco comun.
