Wow, great work! Your unique style upon drawing ponies really shows here; her expression and heavily stylized physique gives her an extra boost of charm and make viewers of the art not dismiss it immediately. For the style that you drew her in, I gave a solid 4 1/2 stars on originality, because you added your own artistic twist. I am totally loving that scruffy, wild looking style you have her in; very Lyra-ish to me at least. (: technique I'm giving 4 1/2 stars on too. She looks comfortable and really "fits in" to her pose, I've seen many posed ponies who look stiff and unnatural. This is not the case for you c: the shading is slightly messy, but this may have been intentional and at the end of the day, just adds to her flavor of messy beauty. Overall, it's very pleasing to the eye and charming to the heart. Keep up the great work!!
