Originally started as a picture for my brother and then entered into a contest here -> [link]
Rate it if you will :)

I imagine as a pegusaus who loves to fly, Rainbow Dash would think it's beautiful.

This was my first time for much of this piece, as you can probably tell.

This piece is very nice.
Overall the picture is well done. I am intently looking for mistakes to point them out so in the future, you may fix them, not to be a jerk.
The first thing I would Like to note is that the shading on rainbow Dash's body could have been smoother and softer. Right now, it is very rough, and does not give the feel that she is out flying in the night sky. The wings, however, are very nice concerning both shading and positioning.
The mane and tail are also commendable.
Again, the entire piece is lovely, and I really like it! You said you were looking for critique, so I gave it a shot.
What do you think?

This drawing is beyond amazing. The shading was well done, I love the was the wings were done, and the way the colors in her hair and tail transition from one color to the next looks so professional.
You're one of the few artists I've seen to draw her cutie mark spot-on.
The few things that are wrong is you forgot her eyelashes, and her tail seems to be coming out of the top of her "plot", but I think that was intentional.
Otherwise it looks great (and you don't have to fix it if you don't want to, it looks amazing even without them.)

I normally don't like my little pony fan art or my little pony for that matter but this is just awesome! I love the pose, the dramatic shadows, and the movement in the mane and tail.

Thanks! It's great hearing from you~

More is to come, I'm honestly not that proud of this because of all the things I've never tried before. I'm convinced that My Little Pony is the key to the front page, and the front page is the key to rainbows and happiness.

well trying new things is always good especially in art. And yeah my little pony probably is the key to the front page but I don't want to jump on the bandwagon.

I don't know if it's just 'jumping on the bandwagon' when I honestly enjoy the show and want to express it through fan art. I suppose it's going to seem that way with anyone who does fan art of something popular.

Sorry I think I interpreted what you said wrong I thought you meant you were drawing mlp just to get on the front page, since the show is so popular. But if you like the show its all good.^^ That reminds me I haven't done fan art of anything in a while maybe I will do some of something soon.

I saw this last night and was like, "okay, this seriously deserves a critique!" but It seems that two people have beaten me to it, and have already stated most of what I was going to say :( so sorry 'bout that. So instead, I'll just leave a comment, if you don't mind...
I LOVE the overall look of this. Rainbow Dash just pops, despite the dark atmosphere. Well done on the background, I love how the cloud formations create the feeling that the viewer is in a tube of clouds, and the attention is drawn across the piece up to the moon.
Again, I love how rainbow dash looks in this, though just one thing...I think her main and tail should have some light reflected on them, instead of being so flat. But that`s it.
Great job on this, very original and eye-catching :)
