Meus Pauxillum Caballio by lord-phillock Meus Pauxillum Caballio by lord-phillock
For the record: I'm not a brony. I watched a bit of the first season and a bit of the second, and do acknowledge that it's a hilarious show with very cute characters! It's great!

I wanted to get that "Renaissance" look on this, and did spend a bit more time on this just because no one does that stuff much, and I think it's pretty hilarious.

I ALSO did this to get you guys to check out my friends' very intriguing documentary project: [link] <-- and it will be fantastic.

It depends what you consider "messed up". I consider "messed up" repetitive plotlines, flat jokes, major anti-climatic events, conflicting ideas and plotholes the size of Atlas Mons. I still watch it because I loved the first two seasons, now it's just like an animal hit by a truck. Writhing in agony and making some faint sounds from time to time, but dying slowly. Plus the movie was the closest thing the creators came to spitting the fans with expectations in the face.

Oh no, watch it if you like. Maybe you'll like it and become a fan.:happybounce:  As a small piece of trivia, I've come up with a new term,thanks to MLP post season 2. It's called a "King Sombra", and it's used to denote things you've had very high expectations of ,but end in a crushing, disappointmentStare . You'll understand it's origins if you watch the show.Wink/Razz

I love the lighting, sort of like sunlight shining through a high-up window, and each character's pose is really neat. I especially like the shading on their manes, especially Rainbow Dash's. The details in the background are awesome too - the tiled floor, the arches, the pattern on the sides. I kinda wonder what Pinkie and Rainbow are looking at.
I hadn't noticed anything wrong at first, but now that I look closer, I think Pinkie's eye is a bit too far back, Rainbow's eyelashes are too thick, and Fluttershy's ear looks kinda... blocky. I dunno, maybe it's supposed to be like that.
Could you explain the white dots to me? I don't know what they are, and I still like them.

It's a pretty cool drawing, it gives the illusion of being 3D btw. The background is outstanding-, beautiful.
Pinkie pie looks kinda weird, but it may just be me.

I remember a time when being a brony simply meant that you thought MLP was a good show, which is the definition your description fits. Nowadays people equate "brony" to "obsessive ponyfag". It's the very reason I don't normally call myself a brony.

A bit of Domenico Ghirlandaio and Paolo Caliari moooooooooostly. Though it doesn't look very similar to their styles anyway. Oh well.

Awsome portrayal of the gang! I really like how you managed the shading here and the way you made their texture look just like the renaissance style without it seeming even slightly odd. A real nice job with the background as well.
