Lauren Faust: The God Empress of all Ponykind by EuropaMaxima Lauren Faust: The God Empress of all Ponykind by EuropaMaxima
After one month and a broken tablet, Lauren Faust is finished in all her glory!!
This is a prime example of sacrificing posing and background in favor of caking on as much detail as humanly possible!
Sadly due to the size of this image I had to scale it down a tad, though I don't think that it has affected the overall detail too badly.

Hope you like it, comments and critique are appreciated greatly :D

VisIon: thi piece is visually stunning and quite beautiful. The colors are quite nice.
Originality: although this piece is wonderful, there are a lot of Lauren Faust alicorn ones similar to this, So I only gave you two and a half stars for that.

Technique: the technique of this piece is quite nice also, very expressive and visually pleasing. I especially like the way you did the shadows and highlights of the armor.
Impact: this art is quite impact full, drawing the viewer into the piece and leaving him hungry for more.
This is my first critique, so I hope I did a good job:)

15 out of 22 deviants thought this was fair.

it is beautiful, the crown is amazing and the armour is the most fantastic armor that i have ever seen, and i have seen alot of armours, and on a pony no less. but the hair looks just a little clumpy to me, the mane has a slight medusa snake hair look to it, i think if you made the hair more like threads then it would be much better, otherwise its perfect. the overall air of the peice is extremely majestic, but the hair and the way it is shaped is just a little bit off.

very great work.

Just imagine how safe Equestria is with her in charge.
I have no words. This piece of art is beyond stunning, as well as being one of the few truly fantastic representations of this character. Thank you!

Excellently-drawn heresy.

Struth...this is amazing!
This is amazingly well done. There is so much detail that I find myself staring at it for several minutes just trying to take all of it in. I love how you have the unicorn heads on her hoof armor, and I found Philomina, Celestia and Luna's cutie marks on both her legs and wings, and 3 of the Mane 6 on her wings. I would love to see this done to Luna and Celestia as well. Good job! Dance! 
There are no word I can come up with that could adequately describe how epic this is!

I'm not a fan of My Little Pony, or Warhammer, or the expression 'bad-ass,' but this is bad. fucking. ass. 
Such epicness! This is what I call a defender of ponydom!
