very very nice,
flowing of the mane looks very good on her.
colours seem right but she should be just a teeny tiny bit moree pinkish.
the way you made her mane fade a bit at the tips is unique, i think at least. nice background with clifs, trees and an ocean, a little clicé but this one... this one just speaks to me...
also that look in hey eyes... she looks... well she looks like she's thinking about some serious royalty isseus.
what i mean to say with all this is...
good job, very good and please keep on making these things!

First off, I've been watching Altermeta for years and I gotta say your style + MLP fanart = AWESOME. This piece, and the Midnight in Canterlot one, are gorgeous and go beyond the typical MLP fanart in so many ways. You don't just rearrange the original artist's style and characters into different poses and put them on a background composed of different elements from the show. That stuff is all well and good but what you've done is actually interpret these characters in YOUR own way, which is how really good fanart should be done, and it shows off YOUR particular skillset. The colors are gorgeous, the lighting is very well done, the composition is engaging, and the overall feel of the piece is warm and inviting. Plus, I get a real sense of depth and personality to her character, not just a lovely piece of artwork. Well done. :)

Hi, would you be willing to let me use this as a background for a song I'm writing? Credit will be given, of course.

This is breathtakingly beautiful.  You've captured a sense of majesty, serenity, and *magic* to a degree many artists only hope to one day reach.
