I find this artwork very intimidating. You, my friend, have odd ways of portraying intimacy. I like it. I especially like how the backgrounds is crudely bushy like in the series, only it has more detail. I would recommend, however, that certain tints and shading should be placed properly; as in, only one lite source should be reflecting the main subject.

Your painting technique is very solid and swivel, I would say, but I've seen similar. Don't take that as a conviction, but a lot of people can paint.

There are lots of curves. I like those, however it seems only fair that the sky be as colorful as the rest of the artwork.

Other than that, nice job.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
115 out of 132 deviants thought this was fair.

The first thing that jumped out at me when I looked at this was your gorgeous shading. You understand light sources very well, especially the beautiful tail and mane. Well done. I'd also like to compliment on the background - it fits very nicely with the picture, yet isn't so complicated that it drowns out the foreground.
The only thing I will note is that I have seen other deviants with a very similar painting style. I'm not saying that as an insult or a critique - I would just like to encourage a little bit more originality and creativity in the way you express yourself on canvas.
Overall, this is a very nice piece and I definitely envy your painting abilities! :)

I can imagine Shining Armor offscreen hiding his nose bleed. XD
