So I see a lot of good in this image, but also some bad. So I am going to start with the bad.
There is a problem in this image that I see in a lot of pictures that people draw. The faces of just a little off. The specific problem is that the eyes are a little too far apart, and those tiny lines just next to the inside end of the eyelash only emphasizes the problem. The reason that it is a problem it because once you notice it, it distracts from the rest of the work taking away from the impact of the image. It also is the reason the Technique score is not as high as it can be.
I also can't say that it is an entirely original concept. Drawings of groups are not all that rare. Though I should also mention that I also see that some things where done differently, and differentiate it from the rest.
The coloring is nice, though the pink color added to the knees seems a bit odd to me. I like the shading, it reflects a single light source coming somewhere from the middle, though where exactly the light is coming from is not clear.
I also wish that there was a little more variety in the facial expression and eye shapes. The most unique faces are Rainbows and Pinkies.
The image also has a clear vision, but is not perfect. It could use a little work to make that vision more clear such as a more detailed background.
What I would suggest to do to improve this is to study photo-realistic illustration.
You might be wondering "Why pony man, why do you say that."
Let me preface this with saying, I use tracing as a way to get an idea of how to draw something before I draw it myself. I do not upload traced images.
except for this one

I say I am getting good at tracing because I was browsing DA yesterday, and saw this image by dividedby-ZER0
Art Trade by dividedby-ZER0
I immediately thought, what if I combined his art style with something vastly different. CaptainPudgeMuffin 's art style.
So I found these images Grooming Animation (5000+ Watchers) by CaptainPudgeMuffin Priorities by CaptainPudgeMuffin Melon Frost Commission by CaptainPudgeMuffin Gimmi Commission by CaptainPudgeMuffin
And I used them as reference to redraw the art trade by Dividedby-ZERO thinking "this will be a fun experiment.
Then it actually looked good, so now I want to show it to all of you, but I don't want you to think that it was mine.
before I continue, I only combined the line are style, so there is not color. So just so that nobody can just put in in MS paint, color it in, and call it theirs, I altered the background a bit. You won't even notice.
ok, here it is in all it's glory
 Divided by 0 x CaptainPudgeMuffin by Mr-Pony-Man
And this is why I say I am getting better at tracing, because I am now working someone else's art style in as I trace.

I can not, however, say that it was fruitless, because I now know how I want to draw images in the future. It is going to be this combination of art styles that I will use with my own touches.
I also now know little tricks to add detail with minimal effort. All that is left is to learn is the anatomy of horses and cats because cat pones are where it is at.


I only have one thing left to say,

Go support dividedby-ZER0 and CaptainPudgeMuffin
They are great artists and deserve it.

I was thinking of doing vlogs in the future.

Should I do some vlogs?

They could have time lapses and future projects, but mostly they will be a way to give you content when I do not have time to draw.
