Oh boy here's my first critique so hopefully all goes as planned first i would like to start of with the vision i believe that portrayed exactly what you wanted to on the canvas with minimal effort at all and made it clear what you wanted to draw for us for that sir I say well done very well done indeed, following with originality I can say this is one of the more original pieces that I've seen twilight sparkle in and there is quite a heavy tone portraying her magical prowess and looking at the runes and the art style in general i can not help but feel at awe every time I take a good look at this artwork, as for technique that was always beautifully done you even had the contrast of perspective involved when looking at the desk's and flask's something that many artist's tend to avoid simply because of the hassle that incorporates it, the image itself just always seems to pop as well, you always know where to look and your attention is brought to it at an instant, finally the impact, well not much more need be said after this review this is one of the greats and compare it to the greats of the community and to that I can say with a smile on my face congratulations :D, the only thing that I find slightly askew would be the horn, the horn itself looks great but i feel as though the lines should be drawn slightly different to make the masterpiece 120% fantastic, and on a side note i take great joy in looking at the starscape background whenever I have the ability to look away I can really appreciate it :) well done and hope to see more of your work soon!

I do commissions. But this level of work is not the cheapest thing so usually peoples interest stops there where a fair payment for my efforts is mentioned ;)

Just change around stuff like shading and the general mood of the picture. It's not my work of art so all credit would be given to its creator and links to both it's owners page and the original art work would be given in the description along with a statement clearly stating that I merely edited the piece.

That circle spell looks so neat, but I think I actually saw most of those symbols in another place, somewhere else than MLP....
Still, neat job and LOL Derpy in the bookshelf !

I have drawn those symbols myself, manually and by random, not referenced, so if you saw similar symbols it is by accident.

Sorry, it spans several layers and os partially clipped as there's pony on there so it won't look all that fabulous on its own.

Is that a spellbook? At first I thought that doing crazy awesome spells just wasn't enough to distract her from reading.
