This might be my favorite of yours because her face and coat looks ponyish. Some of your other pictures have wrinkles that makes it look like they don't have hair, but human skin instead. I'm no artist so I don't know how, but this face looks great; sometimes their faces turn out masculine or just odd. You're really good at art, but the way you draw ponies gets odd sometimes.
The head and soft-color for her coat look great in this picture, as well as the hairs coming off the tail. She also doesn't have human knees in this picture like she did another I've seen. I really hope you keep doing pony art; I'd like to see you improve
A lot has been said on the absolutely wonderful and fabulous Fancy Dash, but I wonder if anyone has made this Taco reference:
"If your blue and you don't know where to go to why don't you go where fashion sits? Puttin' on the ritz. Different types to wear a day: coat, pants with stripes, and cutaway coat, perfect fits... Puttin' on the ritz."

I don't understand this My Little Pony fad. I've seen the show and it's not funny or interesting. Maybe all of the furries just got together and were like "What can we do to annoy the hell out of the world next?". I'll be waiting for the "Well that just your opinion" shpeal, but I'm just saying; I don't understand it. Especially the older fans of the show. You would think they had a more tasteful mind by the time they've matured. Or maybe they haven't... maybe that's why they're fans. Whatever, I can go on forever about this subject.
I can say for sure that Bronies are not such due to any fetish or immaturity. Here's a psychoanalysis of MLP appreciation: 1.)People like the aesthetics. The animation is exceptional, but, more than that, it's simply pretty. Sunny and bright. Literally a land of unicorns and rainbows, which leads to the next point: 2.)Escapism. In traditional literature, utopia always descends into dystopia. This being a cartoon, a perfect land can exist. Some Bronies (myself actually not being one) immerse themselves in the picturesque setting and try to forget the trials and tribulations of real life. This environment of happiness, besides being beautiful, is appended by: 3.)Innocence. Escaping from cynicism is refreshing. Appreciation for innocence, however, is NOT synonymous to immaturity. Verily, there are 30 year-old Bronies with a college degree who write ultra-violent pony stories, yet still appreciate the purity of the show. 4.)Joy. The characters resolve their conflicts and end the episodes in laughter. and 5.)Cuteness. Most (how can someone not?) find the characters adorable. 6.)Character depth is another reason people appreciate the show. The characters are surprisingly round, with a plethora of traits. Each occasionally breaks their mold, furthering their depth. They also interact in different ways depending on their peers and situation. 7.)Morality. Each episode contains a lesson. Many Bronies take the lessons to heart. Subconsciously, they probably feel as if the morals add worth to the time they spent watching the cartoon and believe that they are becoming a better person via absorption of this media. In fact, some Bronies claim they are better people because of the lessons each show. This does not seem to make sense, as adults should not need a children’s cartoon to enlighten their sense of morality. They probably already had an urge to better themselves, however, and the pure joy of mushy cuteness (I acknowledge that this is in the eye of the beholder) combined with the morals imbued a sense of direction in them as they realized that having a positive outlook on life is pretty damn easy.
Bronies also love each other (platonically, in most cases). The community is genuinely kind. Analysis of the community: 1.)Art. Some of the art about the show can be incredibly thought-provoking, inspirational, and beautiful. This picture, for example, I find quite charming. 2.)Same thing applies for videos, stories, and music. The amount of talent in the community is ridiculous. 3.)Interaction. Bronies regularly converse about the show, their lives, and most other topics. The community is very social and friendly. 4.)Acceptance. Bronies believe in (as you may have heard one say) "love and tolerance." This stems from the positive moral messages of the show. Becoming part of the community is as simple as joining. And being part of any community gives people a sense of belonging. Also, there seems to be a common character trait amongst people who like the show, meaning that most everyone gets along.
I assume, from your comment, that you have probably heard people obsessing over ponies or spouting memes. Bronies are very enthusiastic. Memes are a way for them to feel as if they’re a part of an exclusive society, as well as, in some cases, annoy people sloghtly. They don’t mean any harm, however. They simply want to share their source of joy with the world.
You may not like the show, but many people genuinely do. Same thing with music, food, fetishes, software, and pretty much anything else on the planet. Difference of opinion is what it is.
I too can go on forever about this subject I hope I conveyed some information to you
