Yay, got another 'big' piece done. Hope you like it.

Temperature over here in Germany is crazy high, and I sort of wanted to bring this summer feeling over to my work. So there you go.

You got the mood of the scene spot on. Rarity being the one who doesn't play and bathes in the sun. Twilight the egg head caring about not getting sun burnt. Rainbow and AJ playing and being active. Fluttershy of course being kind and interacting to the animals. And Pinkie just being her adorable self. One of the first things I noticed is the foreshortening on Rainbow dashes fore-hoof is a bit off. Since it is in the back it should be a bit smaller than the front. The shading is simple and nice. Although the shadows seem to be a bit random. Some of the shadows drop to the back and some towards the front. Other than that it is still a great art piece worth a fav and a watch. Great Job, I hope you can improve upon the shadows and try to experiment with foreshortening.
What do you think?

Fabulous! You captured the personality of each pony great! Pinkie Pie, playing around, Fluttershy excited by small things and exploring different animals, Rarity lounging around and not taking risks of getting sandy or wet. Then, theres Rainbow Dash playing a game and theres Twilight Sparkle... responsibly applying her suntan lotion trying to avoid a burn. Theres apple jack... somewhat adventurous and going to explore the water. Great. One Con: Rainbow Dash's leg in the back on the left (the one not shown) is a little off... It should be a little smaller. Otherwise, fantastic... It is great because it's summer and everyone wants to hit the beach! I've been looking for a picture of this quality and idea. Absolutely worth the favorite and maybe even a watch! I hope this helps!!

Rainbow Dash looks sort of blitzed out. :( Her facial expression could use from improvement.

Super cute and colorful picture! I love that they're all doing something different, in unique poses and various points of focus. The only thing that kind of got to me is that Fluttershy seems to be missing wings? From the curve of her back it looks like they ought to be there, so I thought maybe some lines are just missing. :)

Wondering if there is a story behind Pinkie with AJ's hat or if it's just for grins.

*gasp* Pinkie wearing Applejack's hat? Hopefully AJ is OK with this since no one else wears Applejack's hat. The artwork is well done.

They should do this for an episode. The mane six goes to the beach, and see some sea ponies.

Such a cute drawing! I don't have much to critique on (as I mostly agree with Jordanloo) so I'll go ahead and compliment you on what I really like~

You've got their personalities down perfectly, they all seem to be doing stuff that fit them. The ball seems a bit weird, but it doesn't distract from the total picture. Pinkie Pie was the first thing that caught my eye and she looks so cute here. :iconpinkiepiesmileplz:

I like the water and sand a lot, especially those splases AJ makes with her hoof. Rarity's hair looks gorgeous too, she looks so elegant under her parasol. It's a shame it doesn't really cover her that much, seeing as that would make it a lot more practical.

Overall, this picture is very cheerful and happy. I like the atmosphere you've created and it makes me excited for the summer, which is a rarity (pun intended) seeing as I'm quite sensitive for the sun. Nice job!
