I like the clouds you did here, very good. Something for me to practice it seems, cos my last attempt looked like grey cloth pinned to the celing.

That background looks amazing. I absolutely love the atmosphere of it.
The fog / blown up snow, the bleak trees, the clouds, not just a grey sky, not yet a storm, the light breaking through them....
And those scratches, like it's an old photo or painting in a frame.

With or without pony, it looks pretty good.

It reminds me of the song "As it is" by "Deine Lakaien", one of my favourite bands., which is never a bad thing to do.
I just wish I could give some constructive criticism instead of just "amg, i luv eet!".

Nice... Fluttershy looks a tad strange (by comparison to the source material), but that aside it is still a very well-done job. I specifically like that light which travels across the sky. Bravo.

"I need to practice clouds"?

Are you kidding!?!
That's pretty dang good, so soft and subtle, your shading is A1 too ^.~
Though Fluttershy looks a little morbid, but that's the style I guess without context...

I thought she was supposed to look like that... being all down and stressed from a long miserable journey, that star being her only light that will lead the way in this dark time~

That's the story I made in my head anyway, correct or not.

I think you got the light shining through the clouds perfectly. This fog near the ground and the way you can see Fluttershy's breath makes this 10x better. And I love the blue orb you drew, because it reminds me of Navi like a comment below mentioned, and my nickname is Navi x3

The little blue light kinda reminds me of Navi. Or maybe a paranormal orb (you know, those circular ghost balls).

Walking in the snow. Freezing like hell with the only thing guiding you being a magical flying light. I cannot tell what was going through your head while you drew this, I might never understand it anyway. I do however plan pn make it a habbit to ask you a question referring to all your upcoming artworks.

So the question is: Did you think of something spicific while drawing this piece? Or is that too personal?

It started off as just a background/environment study practice, but I got sick of working on it so I felt like putting a pony in it. I've been influenced by the game, Journey, quite a bit lately too: [link] so it pretty much explains that little light I guess.

Haha Yeah I know the feeling it's like "Okay this is not that interesting... *adds pony* Oh yeah now we're talking!" Also Journey is a fantastic game. Once I get better I will attempt to draw fanart of that as well :3

It's interesting how all of your art is at least mildly depressing. I think it is due to the dark hue and atmosphere of your art.
