Lauren Faust the Empress 2.0 by EuropaMaxima Lauren Faust the Empress 2.0 by EuropaMaxima
You ever have that feeling when you've drawn something to a certain detail and for a time believed it was perfect? Then you decide that actually you could fit even more detail in?

This is Lauren Faust we're talking about, we must not spare any expenses!

This is just to show you that I haven't totally stopped the the Lauren Faust Empress.

Hope you like, critique is still appreciated :)

your metalic effects are incredible, im amazed how do you did it, the fierce expresion of her face is great and the olive tiara in her head and the golden aura gives this an air of glorius and magnificent, btw, i think that the hair can be better, needs a bit of definition, cause it looks like tentacles, the background is very nice you make a good contrast between the character and the scenary, the eyes could be a bit dark in the center to make this more depth and realistic. you did a great job. Nice done and sorry for my bad english n.n

Okay 1st off, I'm going to say this right now, Lauren Faust is best pony, always and forever. Without her we wouldn't have the amazing show MLP:FiM that has formed behind it, an AMAZING community that's super supportive. And so, as best pony and creator of the show, I've always pictured her as supreme overlord status, and as an empress, that works just as well! So awesome job because this is fully badass. Anyways, moving on to the actual critique or, as is in this case, the fawning over of this piece.

Vision- Okay, solid 5 stars from me. The idea behind this was already pretty much canon in my mind, so seeing it in art form just makes me that much happier, great work.

Originality- Yes, ANOTHER 5 stars, because I've yet to see another artist do the Fausticorn in what looks like full battle regalia, only embedding the idea of Empress Faust further into my poor, overstuffed with head-canon mind. Solid work here.

Technique- Alllrighty, the lowest score you got from me here, 4 stars. I will say this, EVERYTHING is flawless and sooo well drawn...except her muzzle. It really bothers me, because the amount of muzzle we see squared off doesn't seem proportionate to the angle of which we see her face. It makes it seem overly boxy, and not quite the delicate, sleek, and yet powerful face we see with the rest of the alicorns. Once again though, everything else seems utterly flawless, shading/lighting is superb, especially with how the light plays off of her armor and shining hair. Also, I noticed that the armor to the left (her right?) seems to not have finishing touches on it, but I assume this just isn't done. Overall a solid 4 stars.

Impact- Okay, 4.5 here from me, because you really left a mark on me, this whole piece is incredibly inspiring, from the gleaming armor, to the stern look and flowing hair. I definitely won't be forgetting this deviation ANYtime soon.

All in all I'm awestruck by your amazing talent, and sincerely hope to see more like this from you. Excellent job, and keep up the great work! (Now if you'll excuse me, I have your gallery to browse)

Why is everyone picking on this picture in particular? If this makes you sad then the full body pic would probably make you vomit with rage or something....

The expression of fierceness is awesome. I love the eye. The tiara and mane flow nicely. Armour is kick-ass. The colors and tones work great together. My fave of the day! The area to the left of the armor, below the mane, is that complete??

Dude! I love the mixture of Roman/Gothic armor you've got going on here. That darker black/grey shade lends so much to the impressive factor! And the gems! The red inlay! The flared shoulder pauldrons (or is that attached to the neck guard? hard to tell, but hardly matters)... speaks of epicosity! You better still be working on the full body version, don't stop here! Lol, I don't think my heart could take the disappointment, lol. Yeah, this is much much more Empress like. Great work :D
