An amazing combination of Pear and Apple,
This is the first time when two different ponies from different Families join together.
If you remember that Main Pony: Applejack went in the footsteps of her dad, like Macintosh and Applebloom.
Also, we do not exclude Granny Smith, who is the mother of Bright Mac, although I do not see that series, but I think she was surprised when she was young and learned that her son who had Apple's roots married a pony with a Pear family. I will say so Applejack parents became the most interesting ponies for the whole Cartoon, my favorite parents of the Main Ponies,
Parents Twilight and Rainbow, and now the AJ.

Since you said you are sensitive to critiques, I will address my viewpoint lightly <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
So first off, let's start with the positives. The shading and lighting are beautiful, and their pose is both adorable and romantic. And the distance such as behind the characters such as the background is blurred accordingly. I may be nitpicking, but the outer rim of Bright Mac's hat should not have been blurred, but keeping the back of the hat as part of the background (just a small error I noticed).

Thought this masterpiece is nicely made, there are a few flaws I noticed. I saw there was not a lot of hair details, only seeing the shading and a few lines. It is hard to make hair look realistic and natural, but with your talent, you can do it. Since your style is much like MLP, and don't show a lot of details like the ponies'fur or props' details, I can let it slip.

Overall, this piece look splendid, and you put a lot of effort into this! It's preferred, but I suggest working more on distance and not blur the background too much. I know it wasn't the best critique I given, but I gave it my all.

Wonderful job!
Your characters are easily recognized as Pear Butter and Bright Mac. Their pose looks natural and produces all the appropriate feelings. The observer has no difficulty interpreting this as a tender moment of blossoming young love. The checkered blanket and your use of soft shadows adds to the sense of innocence and also sets the scene as a spring/summer afternoon picnic under a shady tree. I like your inclusion of hoof detail, the bits of grass growing over the edge of the blanket, and your concentration of detail where it matters: on the character's face and embrace.
Pear Blossom's Eye is a focal point and points the viewer to Bright Mac and their cuddly embrace. Bright Mac's mane and tail look amazing with the streaks of dark and light and really great and natural shading. I love their pose!

However, I feel that you were less successful with your lighting/shading. Both have faces illuminated from below, but their limbs appear to me to be lit from above, and Bright Mac's torso lit from the canvas right side. And then there is Bright Mac's right hoof seeming to glow from under her head. Where is that light source? Finally, their inner ear seems to pop out, rather than sink in. The effect to me is odd.

Another issue is the floating characters. The fabric of the blanket should have wrinkles and folds radiating out from where your characters press against and into it. This is a common omission, and doesn't affect the overall impact, but it will add much to making the scene and characters feel more real.

Overall, This is a great piece. You were successful making a complex pose believable and look natural and incur the envy of many a viewer who would like to spend an afternoon cuddling in a similar manner. The shading and lighting I critiqued did have the initial feel of spotty lighting that one might get from light filtering through the leafy branches. If that was your intent, some of my critique is invalid. Also, I had to look critically to find faults. There were no glaring errors to distract the viewer.
Did I mention that I love the pose?
