This image makes good use of both round and sharp a way that does not hurt the eyes... though the gems appear at first to glow unnaturally, this is actually a result of reflection, explained via the entrance

Originality: This image uses all original content, and though based on a popular series, would have the same effect even if it wasn't fanart.

Technique: The use of blurring (via softening) is not altogether new or interesting, but does do well for the image at hand... depth is not portrayed as well as it could be... but doesn't take away from the art regardless.

Impact: altogether not exactly new or interesting, but amazing enough to gain my respect.
What do you think?

I love this picture
Vision: is very well developed in all points of view (the brilliance of diamonds, the entrance to the cave, I loved Rarity's mane. I was also very nice internal design (design as such) from the cave inside. Very good ;)
Originality: Good idea. Lacking a little more creative when thinking of Rarity's reaction to being inside, (Rarity would be delighted seeing as getting diamonds)
Technique: The technique that was used for this image is a technique used, but it was applied in such a perfectionist, which I personally I charm.
Impact: I think it is very beautiful. Maybe deserved a little more creativity, but rest everything perfect

It is very easy for me to picture Rarity doing this. :) She's just such a lover of crystals and diamonds and whatnot, as am I! =P That's why she's my fave character! :heart:

"The caves beneath Canterlot, once home to greedy unicorns who wanted to claim the gems that could be found inside."

Once, and yet again. :)
