Hi Kreighzee, it's CaramelPup again with another Critique. I saw your general and thought you deserved a fair critique, so here we go!

The Image:
First, Femme Flare's design is gorgeous. The peach orange and navy blue play off each-other perfectly, neither looking too far pronounced or clashing. It's known that orange and blue are complementary colours, as their at opposite ends of the colour wheel, so I think the colours used work really well.
The inclusion of the bandages looks cool as it breaks apart the otherwise solid navy coat of Flare, making the character stand out more and ultimately giving her more character.
The goggles are a cute accessory and give the character even more personality.
The dark circles around Femme Flare's eyes emphasise the pure contrast between the white of the eye and the darkness of the coat, making the green iris' 'pop-out' and gives the eyes a soulful but bold feel.
Her expression in both poses shows her strong and dominant personality, as well as presenting possible character flaws which are necessary to make a good character.
Femme Flare's cutie-mark is unique and works very well with her passion/talent, which is to stand against sexism for fillies and mares.

Description:
From the Description, it is clear that Femme Flare is much like the realistic women of today which stand for women's rights and regulations shown by this specifc piece 'dislikes: sexism'.
However, the description also show's Femme Flare to not like 'taking things seriously' showing that she is a fun and cheery character and not just one dimensional. The description could have more information on her past and such, but as the description shows, it already contains the basic information needed so I can understand, although the amount of information already shown gives us a good drift as to what the character is about and what she's like.

Conclusion:
I can understand why certain 'individuals' don't like her element being 'feminism' because it brings up the theme of feminism which still hasn't stopped to this day, and including it into a world like MLP which is so against predigest and such would be 'insulting' to the franchise. However, a individual pony should not be ridiculed for their element nor their talent and anyone who does is very simple minded.

Your OC is well-done design which is unique and new; has a good, fleshed out character which doesn't fit into the norm of MLP OC's being either flawless or completely flawed.


I gave you a 5/5 for visual, as your visual representation of her looks amazing and brilliant as usual.
I gave you a 4.5/5 because of the overall appearance and colour-scheme because although it's a good colour-scheme and I won't change it, you have used orange on multiple occasions and it would be more interesting to see some more colour, although I don't see it as an issue but am aware that others would.
I gave you a 5/5 for technique because both the presentation of the poses are clear and flawless and the description is simple but to the point.
I gave you a 4/5 for impact because it's not just one of those images that really 'strikes' you after seeing your previous works. Don't get me wrong, all your work is amazing and beautiful and original, but seeing a similar format for multiple character bio's can get old for some.

Good work Kreighzee, I hope this is a better critique that you'd be happy with. I understand the reason so people hate works like these but hell, what's the world without idiots who can't see past their own likes/dislikes?
What do you think?
