This is one of your greatest pieces in my opinion (scanned the gallery to be sure). Your other pieces utilize a Pixley brush that reminds me of the Scott pilgrim videogame. Whether you like it or not (as you have far more pixel brush works) you show an affinity for the brush you used in this one-off. If not listed in the same year as your other works in 2021 I would have assumed this to be created after a greater span of growth (like an anime time skip of your style). I particularly appreciate the brush in terms of your shadows here. Using a sharper brush for the hair gloss was a good call and the dots in the background subconsciously soften the image with the blue square and white outline helping to make the picture feel full but not crowded.
I also like the square pupils.
One critique I have (and I've stared at this for like 6 minutes straight so I'm allowed one) I think that the shadow under the neck is slightly darker than the ones on the legs which is a little discombobulating for some reason. I think it's because the other black shadows exist within the purple shadows as their darkest point which makes the zero to sixty nature of the necks shadow seem deceptively darker and out of place. I think swapping it out with one of your purple shadows would have... wow this deserves more views I just clocked the counter out of the corner of my eye.
Long story short I thought that this was front-paged until I saw that it wasn't, and yes it is that good, and no I don't like my little poney. good job.
