Pros:

- One of your best pieces to date. The pose, the atmosphere, the shading, the detail....its just amazing.
- The shadows now follow one light source throughout the image.
- Inclusion of a background once again adds depth to the image.
- The artificial steampunk leg fits the design of the outfit perfectly and shows that you have given it thought in regards to colours and aesthetics

Cons:

- The hair seems to be blowing in the wind, but the tail is not. Granted that the tail would have a greater weight than the hair would it should still be affected in some way. Either let it blow in the wind with the same force as the hair or move the tail so that it lies to the right of Applejack.
- Although you have included a background, a more atmospheric one should of been used. For example, if the background was a war, a great army hall or even a palace the image could tell a story and adds to the impact of the image. This would let the viewer wonder into the world of 'Where is she? How did she become a royal guard/fighter? Who is she fighting for?' etc. They can create their own stories for her in their minds and makes the image grab the audience on another level.
- If I was new to the fandom, I would say that this character were male. I'm not sure what specific areas give this impression but I can't help but look at it and think she's a guy.
- Once again we are missing detailing on the handle of the sword but this is just down to personal opinion. The handle should shine and shimmer, but it has been coloured/shaded to be duller than her hair is. It's meant to be shiney so make it look that way! xD

Vision: The pose really shows off what you're trying to do with Applejack; it's apparent just from how she's holding herself alot about what she's doing and how she's thinking. However, the lack of a cohesive background hurts this piece somewhat, but not as much as it could have thanks to the great vision that's found elsewhere.

Originality: Some things that jumped out at me; the commisar hat, the artificial leg, her sword and her vest. These things combined give Applejack a very distinctive look here.

Technique: The coloring and shading here is extremely tight, this piece has some great style, and is very well drawn. However, I'm not entirely sure, but something doesn't seem right with her legs, her balance seems a little off and a little awkward; also her head seems a bit squashed. It's awesome otherwise.

Impact: This really blew me away the instant I saw it. It is distinctive and really poignant, her eyes really pop and she really has a great costume design here. The sword and leg really draw one's eye and it all comes together to make the piece something special.

Wow, this looks great! Its art like this that spurs me on to become a better artist.
She actually has an uncanny similarity to an Imperial Guard Commissar from Warhammer 40,000, was that your inspiration?

Imperial officers in charge of maintaining morale on the troops (usually with a gun pointed at the back of the soldier's heads), from the Warhammer 40K universe.

The fact that this was a coincidence is cause to give praise to TEH EMPRAH!

Wow, this is an amazing work of art. I'm loving everything about this, especially the way she is holding that sword, and that's just about the coolest jacket I've ever seen. Amazing work, I hope one day I'll be able to create something this awesome. Thanks for the inspiration, sir.
