This is just... beyond amazing. The style, the work, the textures, the shading, the dimensions and the proportions are so well done that I'm hard-pressed to do anything other than praise it.

I love the work you put into it overall. A major problem with a lot of works like this is that the artist centralizes around the character and leaves the background largely alone. With this though, the whole thing is just amazing, and truly something to behold.

Heck, trying to find somewhere for you to improve is difficult, but I'll go with the leg, the read foreground one. It has that jarring transition after the leg band that it shocked me a bit, and threw me off a little too much. This may be something entirely about the character, or purely aesthetic from my view, so feel free to ignore.

In short, I loved this. The pencil-esque style is just magnificent, and it is so reminiscent of the original diablo style. A hearty congratulations on a job well done, and I might commission you myself in future.

I have to get my ponies more muscular.
Of course it helps that they cut back on the threats.

Great work! First two things that come to mind for the critique are inconsistent shadow directions, and the snout being a bit too rectangular even though is is often meant to indicate that they are male.

Still an excellent piece as it is!

Thanks mate! ^^, I always have trouble with snouts :/, as for the shadows, I see what you mean, but I did full facing highlights because if I just went by the light of the moon then it'll be difficult to see XD

Anything you'd suggest about the face?, I'm open for criticism friend! ;], if there's anything you don't like the look of I'd rather know so I can work on it for next time ^^ Don't apologise I encourage this sort of thing :)

You asked for it.

Re-do the snout, simplify it, and lengthen the neck, ponies whether in real life or in flash animation have lengthy necks, it's part of their profile silhouette.

As of right now, this pony looks like a swine because of it's snout.

Also the eyes are terribly dis-proportioned and looking in two different directions, and not in a Derpy kind of way, but a Picasso kind of way, not sure if that's intentional.

I think the right eye is an eye patch, if it is, I think it would be better with no false eye decal.

Finally, the pony's demeanor looks a bit confused rather than intimidating. I think you were going for "come at me bro." but the current demeanor currently says "what in gob's name is that awful smell?! Was it you?"

Well, I'm not going to re-do anything on This picture XD, as long as the commissionee likes it, that's all that matters ;],

Admittedly this snout isn't me best, I always have a habit of raising the nostrils for some reason, The neck was lengthy when I sketched and inked it, there's quite a few things covering it so i guess that makes it look shorter than it should, That is an eye patch covering the right eye, That's what the commissionee wanted so that's what he got, though thinking about it I could have raised it a bit :p

For the pose, I went for victorious, not threatening
