The Saddle Rager by EuropaMaxima The Saddle Rager by EuropaMaxima

The first of my new Power Ponies collection! This picture was started weeks ago and refined as more details were given to us, so no I didn't start and finish this within an hour of watching the episode XD

Now I could have just gone for your basic super heroine skin-tight suit like its presented in the episode, but where's the fun in that?

As this is a new style (and hopefully one I will actually stick with this time) I need all the constructive critique I can get!

As always; hope you like, comments and critiques are greatly appreciated! XD

Well here we go again.

This time I will ignore the Vision, originality and other stuff. Cause I think they kinda distract me. So you get all the 5 stars! (all are well deserved of course)

Now to the meat of things.

Right off the bat, the new shading style is really awesome. Definitely a huge improvement over previous power pony drawings you have. Double, and in some cases triple, cell and soft shading combo is crazy looking. Something I personally would be terrified to do due to sheer complexity. Especially when combined with whatever the name is for that kind of highlights that you used. All in all, an awesome style upgrade!

Also your take on the her suit is very nice! It nicely exposes her physique Admittedly I do not think she would be that buff, but that is just my headcanon speaking, so you still get A+. Other small details on her suit are very eye pleasing as well. The little butterflies on her gauntlets, her oh-so-fluttershy-like belt and the neckles. The pose is also nice but that is something just comes with experience, so it is very natural for you.

One other thing that is different from the other power ponies that you made is the way the bg and the outlines are made. I like out of the frame style, which works nicely with the pose and the expression she has. It feels like she was about to enter "our world" but after getting a glimpse on us she started having second thoughts. I can't blame her.

One small minus that I did notice was her hair line on the forehead. It kinda looks a bit strange for some reason. But that is just nitpicking.


All in all awesome job! Can't wait for more! (especially for the AJ one :3)

I like how you did the body sort of a she hulk thing going on with the suit being exaggerated from the shows version the pose says sweet and innocent with the face that says "you wouldn't like me when I'm angry" the colors are perfect but I do have one problem with this piece... her hair.

The hair should be wild and free flowing and not in a neat pony tail. and you should have put her cutie mark somewhere on the outfit. All the power ponies have their cutie marks on their costume mostly on their hooves so working it on their uniform would have been perfect.

I also wish you would have not cut off the feet a full body would have been much better. her leaning over makes it look like she tripped and is falling through the panel.

Busty superheroines are the best. Really like this design as it's casual and fitting for her character. Given that she'll hulk up to become a towering beast, something skin tight would be impractical.

My intention is to do the rest of the Power Ponies, then depending on how popular they are and where I want to go afterwards, I might just do it :)

Normal skin tight costume versus a costume that shows more skin... that's a hard choice lol. Saddle Ranger came out quite nice here though. The costume design works. This was a good choice. Now you just need to draw her hulked out ^_-

Hope you continue to do the other ponies too!

I don't think I can add to what has already been said about this piece.  The shading is well done, the shimmer effects are kept to a minimum and add to the piece, and the pose is very heroic.

Perhaps once I've done the other 5, we'll just have to see how popular these pieces get to see whether or not it would be worth expanding the roster....
