A pic I made for Midwest bronyfest promotional use. At first it started out as an adorable little pilot pony, but then I guess my exhausted brain and being pretty angry after spending several hours taking out garbage because my room mate is too lazy to do ever. 
So I guess it kind of all warped it into something a little more intense. I just hope the con can still use it ^^;

This is fantastic! I love the gradient in the shadows and highlights! I do see where others say the cheek is a little weird, but hey, to each their own. If you think it looks good, then I have no right to criticize. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if it pleases you, that's all that should ever matter. Great job!

Not bad at all for a stress-relieving pic. The background seems to conjure up a gritty feel of a wartime era (WWII, etc) and the rough and tumble nature of a dogfight. There are a few things off with the face (how much the cheek in the background is sticking out seems off for the angle of her body/head) and the extra line of the smile, but it conveys a cocky/smug attitude that seems to fit the flyboy stereotype. I like it.

I like it, but the part where you see the other side of the face behind the muzzle bothers me a little.

You should fix a few things in it.
Look closely you'll see what I mean
