I feel like there is something off about it. I can't help but to stare at it, looking to see if, I am missing something

I think a big part of the reason you feel like something's off about this picture is due to the Mane-iac's expression; that isn't exactly the face of a person who is content with what they're doing, that's the face of someone who is aware of what they're doing, but can't stop themselves from doing it. The same can probably be said for the single tear rolling down the side of her face. It shows that the Mane-iac's original persona may still be alive somewhere in the back of her mind and desperately wants to regain control of her body, but most likely can't due to the effects of the chemicals she fell into.

Another big part of the picture is the spray can that the
Mane-iac seems to be pointing towards her own mouth, which
- depending on how you choose to look at the situation - may also point to the idea that the Mane-iac understands that her actions are destroying her from the inside out and is acting out in a desperate attempt to call for help.

...Eh, maybe I'm over-analyzing the art, but I hope that this jumble of hypotheses has given you a good perspective on this piece.

"S-stop! STOP! Or.... I.... I'll shave you."

The mane suddenly stopped.

"Phew!"

The mane resume her aggression.

"This.... will a lot less that if I really shave it..."

OR

"O-okay! You win. YOU WIN! P-please, stop! *sigh* I'll go back using that fancy conditioner..."


Your choice. Wonderful work

She reminded me of a fusion between Joker and Doc OcK when I first saw her on the show.

What you could have done was a picture of Maneiac selling her hairspray product in the same way the Joker did for Smilex in Batman. : D

the shading in this is so lovely, and i love how nicely the transparency of the watercolor worked out, I always end up making the paint way too opaque myself <3

Nice. She's the most ridiculous MLP villain by far, so it's lucky that she's just fiction in fiction.

Indeed. I don't think the "real" world could handle her. Between the likes of Pinkie Pie and Discord I'd say Equestria has all the weirdness it can handle.
