Ah, this is really nice! I love seeing other artists working seriously when it comes to rendering ponies! It amazes me how much difference in style you can find. The hair and bed are done fantastically here in my opinion, and I love the way you gave off a nice smooth shading scheme with accurate forms. Love it! Please do keep it up.
Krita, huh? I remember finding it slower and more cumbersome when I tried it, but with support for more color models, it did have some promise. Good to see you can get such good results with it; I'll have to give it another look, sometime.
