This is awesome! And not only is a pony in a lion but its Fluttershy 2 of my biggest passions combined. The lion doesn't look quite right but I don't blame you for that, even with years of experience with Chinese lions they are still hard to draw, let alone adapt to ponies (I know I've tried with little success numerous times) The colouring is amazing, and I particularly like the way you've lit the scene.
Ah-ha! I see you're the artist who created The Moon Festival and The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Well, I stand by what I said; seeing all six interpreted as a complete and exclusive group that Spike doesn't belong in still puts my spirits down in the dumps. Either way, this still isn't quite as magnificent as some of your other works.
