Fluttershy vs Giant Carp!

So yea... sometimes you just have an idea and you end up working it out.
I combined this idea with looking back at the Timberwolf piece in my gallery and how Applejack was opposing it.
So, Rarity has her giant Crab, Applejack her Giant Timberwolf, and I had this idea for a carp.
Since Fluttershy killing fish is actually canon (The act of killing actually is not but she does feed them to others), I thought she'd make a perfect opponent for this little fish. :P

Also, Holy Carp because of what it almost reads like I suppose

All done during my Saturday Livestream which progress you can see down below.
Ended up doing just this thing during the General Art part, but I guess it was fun :P

This piece all together is very lovely! The shades of light blues against the meadow greens make the world seem like a lush and beautiful place to be living, In my opinion that along helps to make the piece very colorful and pretty.

The huge Carp in the sky seems to be a focal point for me and most viewers as is clearly intended yet to be honest i also wish Flutter shy Stood out a bit more as she has a huge role in the picture as well. I think that what is holding her back isn't that she is partially in the shade but that she almost blends into the mountainous structure she is next to. Her wing fits all to perfectly against it which makes her not very noticeable. That too me is an issue although she is still stunningly colored and beautifully shaded.

Overall the composition is well balanced and very well detailed, everywhere you look there is at least something new to notice, which is very good in my opinion, I already addressed this but the carp looks really nice as well as it reminds me of something out of old Chinese cartoons and the whole atmosphere and the fact that it is emerging from the clouds makes it really seep in the viewer to a fantasy realm.

Overall the few things I nitpick about are just small things to make it better in a way that appeals to me! I thank you for taking a moment to look at my critic and I hope you continue to grow with your art!
