Never Enough by Firgof Never Enough by Firgof
It's been a while since I uploaded a new piece and I had some free time this evening. Figured I'd give doing a simple scene a shot. I'm still not good enough on my anatomy to really show it off, but I'm getting better in areas. I'm not really satisfied with Twilight's hair here (the concept sketch made it look much better than it turned out) but it's all decent I suppose.

I do like the style of her eyesbrows and eyelashes though. I think I'll try and keep that.

[Critique appreciated]

Inspiration: The next season 3 episode (prior text removed due to potential spoilers)

Time taken: About 1 hour.
Edit: Cleaned up and detailed portions -- tried to fix the hair but I don't think it's quite working.
Edit 2: Background was too dark and lifeless. Fixed.
Final edit: Some eyework and I added the frame to the broken mirror.
Alright, actually final edit: Sorry, I couldn't resist but add something a bit more physical to help show her thoughts. (Forgot to enable one of my layers -- fixed)

EDIT: Another EqD feature? For *this* piece? D:
Well I'm just plum astonished. Thank you folks for dropping by and checking out (and apparently enjoying!) my creaky, kooky, art.

Well, this is heartbreaking...even though I have no idea what is going on. But I'm sure my malevolent imagination can fill in the blanks...:dead: Poor Twi...

If the words are written on the glass by Twilight herself, that would be understandable, because she apparently has a tendency of guilt complex and self-abasement under stress and failure (refer to Lesson Zero, "I'm a bad student! I'm tardy!"), just like me.
You touched my heartstrings, especially timely, considering that I'm have a bout of guilt complex right now. I applaud you for making such a great emotional pic.

BTW, the words on the glass are like, some of my worst fears. Especially hurtful ones are "WASTE OF SPACE!" and "WORTHLESS."

Dang o_o.Pretty emotional picture if I can say.
Just a small critique: I don't think Twilight's friends would abandon her for being defeated by Trixie.They'd be more pist at Trixie for again deciding to come back and fighting Twilight for exposing her.

AGAIN,I love this picture though :3.

Hm. Maybe I should put my message in an edit in the pic itself since you missed it. Didn't mean to imply her friends wrote the stuff on the mirror; they're supposed to be the only thing she's got left.

As for why they're not by her side? Well, she's just being a fair sport -- doesn't want her friends to suffer for her loss. Seems a Twilight enough thing to do.

Oh!I guess I did get some of your message,but not entirely.Sorry bout that man ^^;;;.But I do see where you are getting at.Being defeated by Trixie and having her friends be the only thing she has left is understandable.
Sorry again ^^;.

Just a quick clarification as I didn't realize the potential implication: The writing is meant to be written by the citizens of Ponyville; not the main cast. The picture's meant to be the thing she's clinging to in an island of loneliness, rejection, and humiliation.

We need somepony to cheer her up. Like, right now.
Very nice drawing. The colors are of a vivid saturation, yet you managed to make them look cold at the same time. Maybe it's the general blue-ish hue and pale lighting. Whatever it is, I like this one.
But really, someone has to cheer her up...
