J'aime beaucoup ce dessin, il inspire de la serenité mais aussi une envie de se sentir libre et pouvoir s'amuser à la fois ^^
Perso, je pense que Fluttershy irait bien aussi pour ce genre de dessin, parce qu'elle est un pegase, et le fait d'être sur une balançoire accentuerait bien le fait qu'elle ne soit pas aussi bonne en vol que Rainbow X)
Mais ce n'est qu'une remarque, RB colle parfaitement avec le theme et à sa manière :)

Alors pour la vision, j'ai retiré une demi-étoile comme pour la technique pour deux petits trucs côté anatomie : ses pattes arrières sont plus longues que celles d'avant, et son cou un peu trop court... mais le reste nickel !

Après petits conseils (si tu veux les suivre ou pas c'est pas grave je propose juste ^^) pour les ailes tu pourrais leur donner un air un peu plus... "peluche" la prochaine fois ?
Je veux dire, tu peux les faire les plumes un peu plus grosses, elles auront plus de volume ainsi je crois :)
Et pour finir, c'est une bonne idée d'avoir ajoutée de la texture, mais je pense que ça aurait été encore mieux si tu avais "joué avec", c'est-à-dire en mettre plus ou moins selon les elements du dessin pour que ça ne "l'applatisse" pas trop en general.

Bon ben c'est tout ^^

This is amazing! Let me start by saying what amazing technique is displayed in this piece. Your attention to detail is almost impeccable. She looks very realistic and the mood you've created here is quite tranquil. Line-less art has always escaped me, but you did an incredible job. Your use of lighting is very well done. Her expression shows a serene mood and happiness. The clouds fit very well within the composition, and I really like how she is not directly centered in the piece. Your background color harmony is spot on; I love the use of complimentary purples and yellows for lighting in the clouds. The mood you've created here just makes me fall in love with this piece. An exceptional job well done.

Now here's what I think could use a bit of an improvement. The anatomy is great, but I think that her forearm should taper a bit smaller as you did with the leg, towards her shoulder. Her back forearm seems to be a little bumpy. As for her legs, they seem a little awkward as they don't have the "heel" near the top of the haunch. But I don't think that's much of an issue. Her tail seems to be sticking through the swing, and unless there's a tail hole in the seat, it's a bit confusing to the viewer and I think it'd be better if it'd been drawn flat against the seat and jutting out from it. The hair flow is great: I would expect Dash's hair to be thrown backwards as you drew it, but the tail I'd expect to be swinging in the direction she is swinging; unless at that moment she's swinging back, but the direction of the swing itself tells me she's swinging forward. Which brings me to the swing itself. Unless Dash is holding her own weight up, there should be some strain on the swing handles because Dash is pulling on them. They seem to be very stiff as if no weight is being pulled. The frontmost handle also seems to be poking through Dash's skin, which I believe to be a technical error. My other suggestion is to show that she does in fact have a back wing. I only see the front wing, which leads be to think that it's so perfectly lined up with the other that we cannot see it, which is unlikely. As for the frontmost wing, I feel as though there should be more light displayed from behind it, at the tips and such. That's all for improvements.

As I said before, this is an amazing piece with beautiful composition. Keep up the fantastic work.

I've actually been looking for this for a long time.

For as long as I can remember, my grandparents had this painting in their entryway, of a girl on a swing, in the sky. (I can't seem to find an image of it online anywhere, unfortunately) This is so close to that, in color and tone, the background, pose, everything, that I thought at first that it was based very closely off of that one.

I can see that you actually based it off a very different painting, but still.

This is very moving for me because it's something that reminds me of family that I don't have in my life anymore, and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate this work, and how beautiful it is to me.

Initially saw this in Dash's Determination and said "I need to find this image!"

Very glad I found it again after rewatching the video. This image was one of the best bits of the last sequence, and I'm very glad the video brought it to my attention :)
