I love this piece, It really caught my eye, I love Fluttershy, she is my most favourite pony, I love the realistic hooves and the fur you gave her, and I really love the pretty cute face you did on her. I also love the glow and shine in her eyes. it give the good sense of "innocence" in her look. The flow of her mane just so amazing, and the shine and the hair strand texture you added is very attractive. I also love the detail in her wings. It also have very high quality highlights and shadows, this piece is very awesome. I love it. and besides, keep up with good work

What do I think of the background? I think it's pleasantly simple. The dark blue does well in just being there; its contrast with Fluttershy's light yellow coat and plumage really help her to stand out.
Hey, she's wearing a little...cute thing in her hair! I like it!
Nah, the background's fine, and the outline around Fluttershutter puts greater emphasis on her.
Hmm... The cutie marks' stretched look doesn't feel particularly good in terms of accounting for the hip's curving surface, but at the same time it's not particularly bad either. Meanwhile, I really like the variation in wing shading and the fuzz on the chest and the defined fetlocks, as they make for a very cute and soft feeling, with the latter specifically reminding of the way pony hooves are. The wings being the way they are emphasise her body and her face, and her face is worthy of it: that depiction of captivated attention and wonder is just unbearably cute. Also, the added secondary locks of hair liven up her hairstyle and up the adorableness and beauty counts both.
The positioning of the back legs is mostly alright: although I would not have turned the lower parts so sharply inward, pony hooves can do that even without extra anthropomorphisation. The front legs are also positioned well enough, but there's something that makes them look a bit off: the low levels of shading there on their middle parts make them feel curved beyond pony ability without aforementioned anthropomorphisation. Still, it doesn't detract too much from the picture. But I do like the kind of soft, fragile look you gave them, as it makes me want to hug Flutters even more.
