I loved that whole episode. Cheerilee in a bridal veil totally going Juggernaut to get to Mac was fully epic.
As for the happy faces, I have this mental image of the happy faces constantly changing expression to provide commentary. Like, if this is that scene they'd have some sarcastic eye-rolly look at all the schmoopyness.
Just another reason why I hate digital art. It makes my hand-drawn work look like a pile of puke mixed with crap. This is amazingly detailed and I hate you now! ... Oh who am I kidding?!? You got talent and I am unworthy!
One question though; why 'runaway bride?' She wasn't running away from anything in that episode. She was trying to get to Big Mac, if I recall? Because of the Love Poison?
That raises a question: How old is Cherilee, anyway? If the "rave craze" was 30 years ago, as it was in our world, then she would be in her early to mid-forties. But at the same time, she was in school with Rarity, so she can't be more than a few years older than the Mane 6; that would put her in her late twenties.
I guess the easiest explanation is that the "rave craze" was only 15 years ago in the Pony world. Hmmm...
So this is what happens when Big Macintosh gets closer than the Friend Zone? I love her deeply shocked expression as she bolts away. Very nice job on her body, form and especially the pose as she runs. Did you forget the smiles in her cutie mark or were the faces supposed to be muted by trick of the light?
Her hairstyle manestyle came out very nicely too, and the blurry background, along with her left foreleg, creates a nice depth along with the shading.
