The picture is very good but something about the pose bugged me. I started overanalyzing and this is the result:
* Her neck bends at an improbable angle.
* Her left front leg should be lower then her right front leg to keep balance up.
* Her left wing makes no sense. It's literally in front of her judging by the angle of view.

Sorry for beeing overly critic, except for those things this is really amazing. The way you worked with the color of the clouds is really, really cool and the shading is awesome. The entire "feel" of this piece is great :meow:

and i shall answer the over analysis.

1. A horse's head has a larger "turning circle" than most animals, they are almost able to see completely behind them
IRL: [link]
SHOW: [link]

2. It might be the shading, i couldn't get it looking right, to me it looks like her left leg is resting on top of her right, so i said meh, and slightly obscured it with cloud

3. i dont see how it's "in front of her", its spread out to the side just like the right one, only curved a bit more as she is slightly banking around to the left.

and no worries, i appreciate critique that actually points out flaws, as opposed to "thats shit, blah blah blah" it boggles the mind that people don't not what real critique is, so thank you :)

1. I stand corrected
2. I think you missunderstand me. To keep her balance up, the right front leg needs to be in a higher/more outstreched/further up position to keep her balance. As she is turning left, the position of her front legs would unstabilize her resulting in bad things (yay physics?)
3. It's just the prespective seems off. The angle of her body in comparison to the angle of her wings doesn't seem to be correct. I'll try to illustrate:
( | = body, other is wings)
Sensible: /|\ and -|-
This looks like: -|\

Happy to.. help? Complain in a detailed manner? xD

2. i think physics got screwed when a pony can break the sound and spectrum barrier.

3. i still dont see it, maybe im just retarded
