I love the texture of everything in this picture. It looks so gorgeous but I do find a few things off about it. The wings seem either to long or to small for the concept of her body. I do like the position of the lighting but it kind of makes me look there a bit more towards the brightest spot which is just below rainbow dashes hooves.
I do enjoy the flow of the mane and tail but I thought the tail would be going fully out in length when flowing unless she's kind of soaring instead for the moment.
Also is the sun rising or setting? Usually there would be some sort of purples or bits of blue either way within the context if that's what you were going for.
Either way I love it greatly and consider it a fine piece of art. The strokes are wonderful and pleasant to look at because it's pretty even in distribution.
Keep up the talented work.

I am once again reminded why I insist on referring to fanart as ART, no different than a piece you can find at you're local gallery or art studio. To me, real art should be something not only the product of an inspired artist, but it should have the capacity to inspire the masses. To reach the hearts of the audience and awaken feelings of admiration, honor, love, and many others that we, as a people, would strive to reach. To better ourselves, and the world around us. Call me naive, but I believe that this kind of fanart has that potential.
But enough of tapping into my freshmen philosophy class, lets take a look at this piece.

Now when reviewing this artist's work, I find myself scanning over the piece for any places where the detail, or quality suddenly drops or sticks out in comparison to the rest of the piece. I've found that it's most often where the light source of the picture is. While the rest of the piece is made to shimmer and gleam with the light radiated from this source, the quality of the immediate area around the light seems to drop. This doesn't seem to have that problem. The shine of the sunrise and the gleam right under it, makes it look like it's rising over an ocean, without being absolutely clear or obvious. Which is fine, seeing as it's not exactly the focus of the piece.

Rainbow herself, looks just fantastic. The artist's style really shines through in this one. The hair, the wings, the eyes, everything just seems to go together. In the past I might have had a problem with the way the artists does wings, but hear me out. The way the wings are done seemed to clash with the way the hair and eyes were done. In some cases it even looked like they were just glanced over. I'm not exactly sure what changed, but these work for me.

As for everything else. The staggered clouds give the picture so much depth and atmosphere. The feathers floating in the air gives a cool three-dimensional effect. The stars and moon in the sky just compliment the artist's great care in detail. Everything just seems to work.

And if it ain't broke don't fix it, I say.

Cheers to you,
--Michael

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in yo
