Vision: Spot on for Fluttershy showing her joy when out with nature running without fear of being watched and just having fun. Excellently done.

Originality: Ponies not too original but the artist style, energy, and theme can be and are. The style is original for this artist as is the energy I at least can pick up from the artwork. The landscape though not too original does have a fresh feeling in my opinion. Nicely done.

Technique: The open sunny meadow is beautiful and I love how the clouds feel very soft and fluffy in the distance against the light blue sky and sky blue colors nicely mixed. There isn't much detail on the trees other than the different shades of green but that is alright. That works nicely with this as it does not take our eyes away from the main focus which is to be Fluttershy. The grass is a lovely green and the blades of grass detailed with lighter/brighter green is wonderful and I think the use of more detail on the grass blades closes to Fluttershy was a nice choice so it isn't too detailed but isn't flat barren either.

I love how the flowers also double as butterflies is a nice illusion or transition or to show the butterflies were either resting on the ground then took flight or they were flowers and were kicked up into the air into the wind thanks to Fluttershy's energetic run. It's very beautiful. The shading on Fluttershy is wonderfully done based on where the light is which appears to be above based on her shadow's placement. Her legs are done lovely and shaded nicely as her wings also have beautiful detail on the feathers.

Her mane and tail are so elegantly done. Yes they are over exaggerated but they are done classy not in what I would call tacky but done very graceful and beautifully something that brings a smile to my face. Her expression is just captivating and brings a smile, at least, to my face in seeing her look so happy and carefree. The coloring is nice though maybe a little more pink a little less purple but not a great change just maybe a bit here or there but other than that with her mane and tail I can't really find much fault.

Impact: This brings a smile to my face just the happy energy radiating off this work makes me smile and the scenery is beautiful to add to it the sunny clear sky. It brings to mind she is just out enjoying a run during a very relaxing quiet day having time to herself or she just got something she always wanted and is celebrating with a run through the wild flower butterflies. Excellent work.

Overall: Beautiful simply beautiful and gorgeous image. I love the happy energy, the clear and sunny feeling with the expression on Fluttershy's face and the flowers that also make me think of butterflies. There is just enough detail where needed to make it not flat and gives great depth with the treeline. Only thing maybe is a little more pink in her mane and tail but just a suggestion. Other than that I adore how this looks and the wonderful energy with it. Gorgeous and excellent work.

When it comes to fan-art, I’ve often given credit to images that are able to capture the feel and look of the source material. Here, while the colouring matches the look of the how well, we clearly see that the artist has used their own style to make the picture. But that is in no way a criticism as it’s a very appealing style. It’s dynamic, gives it a distinct look and makes the whole image worth looking at if for no other reason than it looks good.

The art itself shows a great deal of talent, with the aforementioned colours matching the look of the show when it comes to Fluttershy herself, but the rest is also coloured well, especially the clouds in the sky which almost look real as a result of the shading. But what impresses me the most in this picture is just how much everything seems to flow. From her wings to her hair, Fluttershy looks like she’s almost in motion despite being a still image, and that’s a very hard thing to pull off.

In terms of originality, the picture suffers, because I have seen a great deal of images on this site featuring this character in this situation. But, as I’ve said in previous critiques, originality, or lack thereof, is not an automatic bad thing for me. Just because someone’s done an image like this before doesn’t mean someone else can’t make it good as well, and this picture is proof of that.

Overall I’d say that this is a very impressive picture. While it may not be as complicated or striking as other MLP pictures I’ve seen, it’s still both well-drawn and incredibly sweet and charming. It’s a pretty picture made by an artist with a great deal of ability to them.

I think the strongest parts of this piece are the lines of action. All four legs, her tail main and wings flow together and away in a very convincing fashion. The sense of motion created by this is another perk. The shading is very good, so is the color palette, I like that you didn't make the butterflies the same pink.

I wish more attention was paid to the bushes. I know it's just back ground, but so are the clouds, and compared to them the tree line seems under cooked. Her eyes seem like a 'pass' as well. It does an okay-ish job of showing her emotion, but unfortunately does a better job of looking like you were avoiding drawing eyes. Not unlike drawing a character with both hands shoved into their pockets.

There's a very nice and delicate tension here, between the shy and retiring creature that we see in the show, and the fierce joy in this picture.

But you make it work.  You make it seem completely believable that sometimes, when no one's looking, Fluttershy gallops through the fields, full of a happiness that is defiant of and triumphant over all the sorrows of the world.
