Oh, my, GOD! I am so glad finally be done with this one! I have been working on it since early JULY for crying out loud! It just kept taking a back seat to other, more important projects, and I lost the initial spark of enthusiasm that started the piece. But it's done now, and I'm even sort of happy with how it turned out. 

I always kind of wondered if Fluttershy ever really let loose, if there was ever a time when she just did something without a care for what might happen, with no one to see... That, and I wanted to draw a cool-looking shot with tropical ocean water in it. 

This is a companion piece to my earlier picture of Twilight, showcasing the rainbow power form. (Thus the extra markings in Fluttershy's coat and feathers.) 

Twilight's picture, as well as Rainbow's can be found below:

Daily Deviation

Given 2017-01-23
No one watching... by turnipBerry is wonderfully lit and vividly coloured. ( Suggested by Bluenight01 and Featured by Lyricanna )
:iconperrypickny:
Okay now this is just a very beautiful piece right here. The way the picture looks is almost damn realistic might as well be a live action picture taken at the right time XD. the lighting has been appropriately been used in this picture, there is a known light source (The sun) and the light reflecting on the pony is well adjusted. The water has a nice affect of looking like it's moving in the actual picture, and the white foam on top of it does resemble the water's movement. The bubbles are a very nice touch to add a some sort of disturbance in the water so the bubbles would form from that reason. The wings of this Pegasus are very detailed, showing how they move with the wind blowing on them (Also the hair) and the light shining through the edge feathers (sorry I don't the specific term for those feathers) show how thin they are in reality (since feathers are composed of small, thin, "hairs" that connect between one another through intertwining spit ends that allow air to pass through, hence why some of the edge feathers appear to have rips in them. that's when the cross hairs split apart a little bit in the feathers). I love how the feathers don't just stay on the wings but also spread onto the body, Neck and torso. The expression show excitement in the activity that she is doing. Over all this picture is fantastic in all sorts of ways, now if there was one thing that I would change is maybe the lens flare (?), it just bothers me a little bit but its a very minor detail that doesn't really affect the picture in anyway. I would say good job sir and keep up the fantastic work ;3

I truly hope your wrist is doing alright after having put in so much detail, fully feathered wings are one of the hardest things to draw and you did excellently. It's not even that they're difficult per se, it's just that they have so much detail in them. Water is also very hard to do, aside from there being dozens of ways to do it, but ya did very well on that too.

Give yourself a pat on the back for not making the bubbles perfect spheres - I see too many people doing that, add in one more for that proper shading, water texture - another hard thing to make look right. My only complaint is the face, since it looks so simple in comparison to the rest of the image, but as far as aesthetics goes it was probably the right choice to not have a ton of detail there to avoid the uncanny valley.

Not sure what to put for those stars, I don't think it would be disagreeable to put 5/5 for everything, you've earned it.

Amazing light and detail!
But somehow I don't like the idea that pegasi don't have hair but feathers ALL over their bodies. Hm, guess it reminds me of archaeopteryx or something...

She doesn't have feathers all over, mainly just the wings/sholders the ends of the legs, and along the neck. The rest of the body is covered in fur.

Wonderful detail, colours and mood! Faving. I think though that the cartoon style head doesn't match the more realistic body and the neck looks quite thin.
