I love the contrast of the textures in her skin and her hair. I also really like how you've given her a happy, care free playful sort of look. Luna is often drawn as a pretty serious person but up in the clouds in the dark of night where she belongs, you've made her seem more at home and happy. I like that. Also, her eyes are gorgeous! I'm not super sure why she's wearing red bows but it's a nice new spin and it adds an original touch of your own which is sort of what fan art is all about isn't it? I would also add that you did a good job emphasizing her as the focal point and letting the back ground fade to the distance, there's some really nice balance in the way you did it. The lighting is also done very well. She's lit from behind by the moon and from below by the cloud and you also did that very well. So all around good job <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> You probably want to know what you can do better and I'm having trouble finding anything but she does seem a little too heavy for the cloud she's perched on but it is a cloud so. . . I don't know. Also, the squiggly mark on her chin can probably go, it's not bad but a smooth line might be better?

Big red bows make every filly 20% cuter... more, if combined with a ponytail!
