Drawing of Starchaser made with Copic Sketch Markers in 5 hours.
This was so fun to paint, I ain't gonna lie. Thanks to the Copic brand my faith in markers has been restored! XD

1. Overall, it is a good art-piece.  But a few artistic refinement thoughts for the future...

2. Magic...  Seeing this and the previous works with Starchaser, I would suggest changing the color of her magic to something more contrasting.  As is, Starchaser's magic blends-in too much with her coat and hair.

3. Angle Portrayal...  It is an educated guess that you angled Starchaser to mimic the shooting stars of the background as well as her Cutie Mark.  Unfortunately, it also makes Starchaser look like she is tumbling down a flight of stairs as much as than pseudo-flying/-diving.  Either the pose could stand to be adjusted to make it look like she is diving, or perhaps have Starchaser in an opposite angle, she is rising up to the skies "to chase the stars."

4. I look forward to when you portray Harmony, her Cutie Mark, and "special talent" theme(s).

I understand your point about the magic color. I've actually been a little conflicted in changing it or letting it be (even if it blends much with her hair) because the magenta color is very characteristic of Twilight's side of the family, and so far I can't decide which color would contrast better with her. :/

Interesting suggestion about her pose, although I didn't draw her pose with that purpose. It's going to sound ridiculous but I just wanted to draw a dynamic pose while in the air, like she jumped (and by the looks of it in a clumsy way) and prepared to unleash her magic to the ground.
Anyways, thank you very much for the constructive critics, these help me analyzing my art better and help me produce better drawings.

Glad to hear that, I'm still thinking about the composition of her drawing but I can already tell that will be painted with Copic markers like this piece of Starchaser.

5. Well, my opinion would be to change the magic aura color.  Never be afraid to change/revise/refine/adapt your art just because you had been doing it a certain way before, especially when such a change offers improvement.  Like how you changed Windy Belle's and Harmony's hair-streaking to go all the way down to the roots, that was/is a markedly positive improvement, after just hair-tints, stretching all the way back to your initial work with just Windy Belle.

Also, Starchaser's magic aura does not 'have' to be that of Twilight's or any of her family, this is where you can add something unique to your OC daughter, rather than just making Starchaser a mere hybrid of the two Elements.


6. In that regard (new magic aura colors), I would offer...
 ~ a. White - the color of stars
 ~ b. Yellow-Gold - the color of the stars of Starchaser's Cutie Mark
 ~ c. Sky Blue (or variant of blue) - a definitive contrast against the magenta & pink of Starchaser's coat & mane

7. As for pose, all you would have to do is change Starchaser's facial expression and she goes from "shooting star" to "aaaaahhhh!!! *thump-thump-thump-thump-thump!* ...  ...I'm okay... *groans* " ;p

8. Always happy to provide a (relatively) critical eye to your works.  Just because I cannot do such levels of art myself, does not mean I cannot try to help others improve theirs.  :)

Yes, you're absolutely right. Somehow I keep forgetting that it's not a bad thing to change some things if it means turning them into something better (as you referred to Windy and Harmony's hair issue). Telling others this is easy but to remind myself is a different thing. 'XD

Oh thank you for the suggestions, that helped me a lot. Already decided which colors I'm going to use from now on. ;D

Pfffft! That would've been so funny. XD

So far the critics I've received from you have been really helpful, it's the kind of critic artists should get. =)

One minor amendment to my magic aura suggestion...  (6a) White, with tiny stars sparkling & orbiting Starchaser's horn (when active), in addition the standard aura.  A bit more work (obviously), but thematically appropriate to Starchaser's name, Cutie Mark "special talent," and lineage.

Whether you want to add sparkling stars for other colors, that is Artist's call.

That's actually a good suggestion, and yes it gives extra work. But it could be well used for those times when she uses a great amount of magic power. =)

That could work.  From a few (2-3) sparkling stars orbiting her horn when she does something mundane and simple (levitating a book to read, telekinetically manipulating a scroll & quill to write, etc.), up to an entire swirling mini-constellation of stars about her active horn when Starchaser pushes herself hard (say, during a mock duel for training with her alicorn mother).

The point is to add a little something to make your OC daughter unique-apart from her Element parents, to truly become an OC.

Yes, it's something like that.

Thank you again for these suggestions, it's helping build the character and turning her more unique. =)

(ahhh! That's great!)
