Thanks for the critique!

I've been sticking close to screenshot references while I teach myself. I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to go "ew, that doesn't work, I'm gonna change it" (wings and magic, in this case), but I'm still afraid to go too far and ruin something.

I should have tried to do more with the front-right hoof. (Now that I look at the reference, I see I totally screwed that up, especially in the shoulder area, haha. Oops. I must've thought the new wings covered it. Now I don't think they do...)

I like soft shading too much, I think. I need to experiment with harder shadows. I've been collecting examples to study, but didn't think I was ready. I agree that the shading is generally too weak. I was having a hard time trying to figure out how to do shadows and highlights on Celestia without discoloring too much. I'm still not sure how to do it. (Not start with pure white, I imagine.) It was easier shading Interrupted since there wasn't any white!

I wasn't sure what the things on the wall were, to be honest. I settled with treating them both as hanging tapestries, for better or worse. The one on the left looked like a door, but it has tassel things hanging over it, so uh. I don't know! (Apologies to Luna if I inadvertently removed her room!)
Correspondence
I have to admit, Picarto seems to have the crowd I'd like to be part of. It seems to be the go-to for ponies. A lot of other people I recognize are always streaming there, too. Every day I change my mind which service I want to call home, aaaahh!

Coffeeee... Without it, no project would be finished. ;P

Thaaanks. :D

Yeah, the eyes were a little bigger... It looked okay, but after a few days it was still bugging me, so I tried smaller and it looked better, yayyy. Digital drawing is a blessing and a curse. Everything has to be perfect because I can keep changing things even when it's supposed to be done, heh. Oops.
