This actually started out as a doodle. It was fun to make. To all bronies, take a look around for a few easter eggs. Just for credit, the vinyl art is album art by Silva and General Mumble (check them on youtube, they make awesome songs)

Vision: I can't claim to see any overarching "point of view, theme or idea" (to quote the guidelines for critiques) that this piece attempts to reflect or convey. From your artist comments, it seems that you weren't necessarily aiming to convey any such concepts.

I also can't necessarily claim to feel that a piece needs to show an overarching viewpoint, theme or idea in order to be objectively "good". Sometimes, a piece is created solely for aesthetic appeal. In that sense, this piece accomplishes its goal, though it doesn't necessarily fall under DA's purview of "Vision".

Originality: I've always held to the ideal that, as Jim Jarmusch said, nothing is original. That said, there are some concepts that are more original than others. Fan art is less original than wholly original works, for example. Similarly, art of Vinyl Scratch DJing isn't necessarily a stretch of the imagination.

This piece isn't very original. It is, however, good.

Technique: I have mixed feelings about how well executed this piece is.

I suppose that is the best way to describe what's wrong with this piece, stylistically. It's mixed.

Parts of this piece show a style that imitates paintings in real life. Vinyl's coat and mane show brush strokes that mimic painting. As a digital painting, she stands out as well done. But she doesn't fit the the style of the rest of the image, and the juxtaposition that is struck, if stylistic, does not convey this feeling. She feels as though she is from another image, and cropped into the one seen before us.

The rest of the image feels intermittently out-of-focus. Using sparse amounts of detail in the background can, stylistically, come off as well done, but that feeling is not present here. Parts of the background, such as the corners of the speakers, or the podium that the turntables are placed on, are smooth and lightly detailed. Other parts, such as the records themselves, or the grating over the speakers, appear overly detailed, rivaling the detail present in Scratch herself.

Each individual section of this piece is well done, but when placed together, they feel out of place, as though each component belongs to a different overall piece, rather than the image we see before us.

Impact: The question DA asks me about "Impact" is:
"Does the artwork resonate with you or evoke strong emotions? Does it make you think? Does it blow your mind?"
The answer I give DA is... No. Not really. The image is cute, yes. It's well drawn. But I don't find myself feeling anything particularly strong as a result of having seen it. No thoughts or feelings have been introduced to me that I otherwise would not have held.

That's not necessarily bad, no. Not every image has to be a political piece. But this piece didn't have much of an impact on me. It's well drawn, but beyond that, nothing.
What do you think?

I'll begin with this: stunning and professional. I have never seen such a cool pose for this side character on DA, the action and mood in the picture is exactly the way I would picture it if it were a part of the MLP: FiM show.

How you make it seem so believable is what amazes me, I love all the background that you placed in and the words "louder" in the background.

The only suggestions I would make would be simple clean up, refine some blurry lines and uneven structures. Once that's done, you've got nothing else to worry about.

I only hope you won't let other harsh critics down talk this fine piece, don't let anyone fool you- this is very prestigious work.

I only hope that you will make many more pieces inspired by the MLP series, your contributions are a great benefit to the fandom :)

Easter Eggs.... Hmmm.....
Her eyes are red in this picture but that's not much of an easter egg
SANDVICH!
Her glasses... are they meant to be that shape? I don't think they're that round
One thing about dem speakers.... I actually supplied them. Not equestrian innovations. I am Equestria's sound engineer after all
How'd I go?

There was, but I took it down as there were a few who abused it and were selling it. If you like to have a higher res version as a wallpaper just PM me.
