Balancing Act by FluttershytheKind Balancing Act by FluttershytheKind
The fifth addition to my Chibi series ^__^ This time Twilight's bitten off a little bit more than she can chew ^^ Hopefully Spike will help her clean up the mess ^^

Hope everypony out there is feeling well and enjoying this Thursday evening <3 I'm happy to be back drawing ponies! although since my Disney Villain series got a little bit more attention than I thought it would, so I may be doing a few more of them in the future too ^^ 

Thanks so much for reading and fave-ing and commenting, or just stopping by to check out my new piece <3 

All my love to all of you <3

First critique on another artist's work. So I hope I don't mess this up.

:iconfluttershyisshyplz:

I absolutely love this picture and the style you used to make Twilight look so cute and adorable! Everything looks nice and crisp. ^^

Though Twilight with books has been done before, it hasn't been done quite like this. Everything seems to blend in very well and compliment the rest of the picture.The textures you used really help to bring out the rest of the picture, and are very warm and welcoming colors. Even the signature in the corner has a nice texture and look to it.

Twilight looks absolutely adorable and the added gentle shading makes it look all the more nicer. The motion she's in really helps emphasize the picture's impact, you did a good job on that too! ^^

You did a great job with everything in my opinion! It just all adds up really nicely.

This is easily my favorite of your chibi series. The sense of motion and tension is great (though Applejack is also good in that regard) and the varied stack of books looks excellent.

Somehow you know that when it comes crashing down she's going to end up blaming Spike. :)

This is the first non-wing Twilight I have seen in ages and I gotta say, even as a non MLP fan anymore, this makes me happy to see in a way. Really cute and just the lil Unicorn student I know and love. Thanks for bringing me something to be happy about for once again, in the whole MLP thing.

aww well thank you so much ^_^ I'm glad I could bring you a little happiness with my work <3 Personally I'm a fan of Unicorn Twilight, if for no other reason than I like the 2 Earth Ponies, 2 Pegasi, 2 Unicorns symmetry... but I suppose there's that familiarity of the unicorn I was charmed by from the beginning in that preference too ^^

I liked the group dynamic too, yea. But I also thought, that Twilight, being 'just' a Unicorn was what made her special just by that alone. The Alicorn thing just doesn't fit, and I still feel like it wasn't well executed in the show at all.
Even the show... I bet I am the only one, but with Season three it started becoming bland to me. Twilights Alicorn episode had so many flaws and didn't even really care about the lore that had been so well established before. (Cutie Marks being your 'destiny' not just your special talent. And how Twilights cutie mark implied her becoming an Alicorn is still beyond me. Not to mention they got two of the main six's cutie marks wrong, as they were swapped. And well, the entire thing with swapping, but that is a whole other story.)
Season four lost it's innocence to me and somehow, you got that innocence and simpleness that the two first seasons had down perfectly right into this picture. Sorry about rambeling. I guess I just really miss being a fan of the show or ponies in general. But I just can't get myself to like the decisions they made.

I honestly miss the ponies from the first two seasons of FiM.

Those books did take me a while actually ^_^ for quite a bit I was regretting putting so many in, or debating just copying and pasting them... but in the end I just buckled down and drew them, I think I only copy and pasted one xD Brownie Points if you can find the duplicate ^^

I'm glad you chose to do it this way, it looks great like this :happybounce: I think copy and pasting all the books would've taken away from it. But... I can't actually find the duplicate o.o
