Please note I didn’t even know this show existed until a week ago.

Those trees in the foreground make my chest fill with pride. The humanoid figure is proportional, and the (lion?) is, too. The detail on the ground and the hills is amazing.

The coloring and the shadows on this piece is splendid. ;)

Keep on making those gorgeous trees, artist.

What a gorgeous, gorgeous picture. And I'm not saying that 'cos I'm biased ;D

I love the colours, here—one thing I didn't consider in (Don't) Let Go is how different the Whispering Woods might have been so long ago (an idea that I adored in The Master's Tools), and I like how adding the brighter tones here over the show's portrayal of the woods gives us a lighter, more hopeful world. Your detailing is phenomenal—I adore the contrast of line art on clothing vs no lines on skin, and what that does for the lighting of this piece.

And, of course, those trees. Dayum.

As a usual disclaimer, I know very little about how visual art works, but I couldn't help but chime in to heap praise on this one. Again, not biased. It's just very pretty.

Thanks to Roger for extending the deadline for the pic submissions. I appreciate it.

I'm glad you liked this. I'll keep on treeing.
and the (lion?)

It's Frizz. Most of the details of her dress aren't that noticeable. I guess it's my fault for drawing at 4000 pixels and then resizing to 1800.

Yeah, I originally painted all in the blueish tones depicted on the show, but it didn't look all that good, so I started playing with the hues until I got something prettier. Then I just added more little details and highlights before I remembered I only had one day to finish this and it was already past midnight.

I'm glad you liked it.

And with that, let me put on my pretentious cap!

I wanted to mention that Mara and Frizz have such a dark shade because that way they start to blend with the darkness of the Whispering Woods surrounding them, which is a way to symbolise how She-Ras must abandon their individuality to become Etheria's protector. Definitely not because I messed up the colouring of the trees and decided to hide it all with darkness. Not at all.

And yeah, since we only saw Mara in her She-Ra getup, I went for her eighties look. I even included that mace thing at the end of her braid.

Oh, well. It was a nice experience. I liked this round.
