Dangershy! by KP-ShadowSquirrel

First thing I should say: you've done an excellent job on coloring this piece.

At first, from looking at the sketch you've done of this piece, I was thinking it was going to be a bright daytime setting, but this dark and gloomy setting really mixes well with Fluttershy's color; her bright yellow fur really catches the eye and mists flowing below her takes some color away from the background, which is a good thing because Fluttershy is the focus of the piece and that a brighter background would take the eye away from what really matters.

The detail you've placed into this piece is great; you have the clothing folds, patches of dirt stains, strands of hair, even the fur on her legs are visible. You have a good eye and an even greater taste for detail.

But I must say, while your unique style is a real treat, this piece is rather generic; you have the pose, the dark and eerie setting, the 'looking-off-into-the-distance-and-looking-cool' look, but this all seems too cliche for me.

If you are really looking to 'wow' the crowd, you will need to do more than just appealing to the eye, but you should also give your work a meaning and appeal to not just the audiences' mind, but your mind as well.

Thank you very much for the critique :)

Yeah, I see your point and will keep in mind to "overcharge" my ideas some more in the future to make them even more exciting :D

Thank you very much for the reply!

And thank you for taking my critique into consideration! It's my first and only critique that I've ever done, but I plan to do more in the future, so I'll be looking out for new pieces from you! :D
