Derpibooru Holidays by atryl Derpibooru Holidays by atryl
I made this for a competition for derpibooru.

The base idea was the server names (cadance, trixie and spitfire), they 'pull' derpibooru, but Trixie can't fly so...

Positives: Visually stunning! Great lighting and shading. The clouds in the sky look great as well as those trees. Maybe because I hate drawing trees and clouds. I love the idea of these 3 doing something like this. I haven't seen anything like this! Great job!

Negatives: I am curious why there are so many shooting stars in the background. Also, it was hrd to distinguish what was going on in the photo at first because of the colors.

Honestly, I don't have many negatives. I thouroughly enjoyed this peice. Thank you for this wonderful visual! Keep posting your amazing art!

It looks like Derpy and Trixie won a Hearthswarming contest where THEY get to deliver the presents with Princess Candace and Chief Spitfire of the Wonderbolts! (And give Santa-Hooves a break! ^^)

I remember when that pic was done, no wonder it won the competition, this is amazing and thing it was made in just a few hours ,I bet that people who spent days and days , hours and hours in their pics cried out out after being defeated. yeah, looks like spent a lot of time don't give you a reward, actually, it can be just a waste of time.

you know, people that spend a lot of time on their pics, days and days and get nothing, it makes the effort just a waste of time, since it's possible to do the same things in just few hours.

I didn't spend just a few hours on it, I spend 27 years practicing art to get here, by drawing every day as much as I can.

It is fair :)

Trixie trying to sneak on board to get at Santa's bag? She 's probably been too naughty to get presents any other way. :)

The great and powerful Trixie isn't scared! She's just ... testing the sled for structural integrity! Yes, that's it, and you should all be grateful for her boundless generosity!
