Vision: The Christmas theme is wonderfully done. I love the gifts on the ground, Rainbow Dash's To Do List on the ground and the lantern, showing she just completed her task of delivering gifts to all the good ponies. The rainbow remaining is a nice touch with the falling snow and the rising sun, a job well done just in time. Beautifully executed.

Originality: This in its own way is original because of the emotions the artist puts into it. The look of satisfaction is not arrogant or self absorbed or anything of the sort just happy with a "yea I got this and made a lot of ponies happy" feel. The setting is lovely and not one I can recall seeing before in other artwork.

Technique: The brushstrokes are nice with the shading and the detail to the snowflakes. The hoof prints are nicely done in the snow with the skid mark trail showing where Rainbow came in for her sliding land before trotting on her way after making the deliveries. The writing on the To Do List is a nice detail as it would had been easy to leave it blank but wasn't. I like how the glow from the lantern was done spreading out along the snows surface is nice with the glow it gives off Rainbow's body, aiding to the soft shadows.

The mark on the sweater being like Rainbows Cutie Mark I love that detail with the glow from her eyes in the reflection from the rising sunlight behind her. I also like the soft shading of a winter blush to Rainbow's cheeks. The blowing snow was nicely done as with the shading on and from the packages, Rainbows body, her wings, the trees, the sky, and all is just amazing. I am finding myself having trouble finding something to say a suggestion to improve with I am just in awe of the beauty of the sky, the land, the winter scenery and the trotting of the fastest Pegasus in all of Equstria.

Impact: It leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy with the winter and Christmas setting and feeling with the gifts and the snow and the sun that appears to be just rising unless it's setting then it is still nonetheless very gorgeous. Perhaps a few blowing strains of hair from her tail or mane would had added to the blowing wind demonstrated by the snowfall and the scarf.

Over all a beautiful piece that is a warm and sweet work that is gracefully done with good cheer. Perhaps a few blowing strains of hair from Rainbow Dash's mane and or tail would had added to the blowing wind but not a huge thing. Gorgeous and amazingly done with all the detail to the clothing, hoof prints, packages, house detail, the list, lantern, the beautiful sky with the raising/setting sun and the nice addition of the rainbow left behind in Rainbows delivery run bathing the peaceful little town in a soft rainbow light of holiday cheer.

Rainbow Dash is definitely best Santa, and I love your Christmas spirit. Her face and eyes are a bit out of proportion, but that may be because of her complicated expression and the angle at which we are seeing her face. It is a minor error. Your detail on backgrounds has always been a strong factor in your art, and this is represented with this piece. Your shading is beautiful, and I just love Rainbow's sweater and scarf. I would suggest using the red and magenta of her eyes and mane instead of the reds you chose, however, just so that a sense of colour coordination is achieved. (Like wearing a shirt that matches your socks.) Your trees could use a bit of detail, but honestly I think you might've made the better decision. Just make sure not to switch between styles in your art unless you are sure that it benefits. Thank you for reading, and this really is a great pic. Good job!

These were definitely the most awesome Christmas ever, if they have such an addon, straight from Dashie herself. :D
Awesome work.

That is awesome! I love the how you broke up the trailing end of the rainbow. This just comes across as both exhilarating and calming.

Why does Dashie look as if she had just killed Santa?



Um, so when parents told me that there woulnd´t be any presents this years because a pony had killed Santa they were telling the truth...

Very cool, the lighting is amazing, and I love how you did the town in the background. Looks very Who-Ville like.

And that cabin seems very cozy with the lighted windows and chimney =)

I don't care much for mane six art nowadays, but this is absolutely marvelous. The colors you used are seriously beautiful.

I can imagine her going: "BOOOOOOOOORING! You don't wanna hear about that, ponies! You wanna hear about LOOT! AND PECS! AND EXPLOSIONS!"
