Well, here's a critique.
I love how you drew them too! I ship them very much! Rarity's and AJ's manes look a little too messy because of those little .. hair pieces coming out of nowhere.
But it's still pretty! The eyes look a little simple. Just a little. And.. this is my opinion, but those eyelashes look a tiny biny bit too detailed. :D Modern is modern. And I'm more fan of a modern, simple art. Of course it's nice to see this kind of art that takes more time and everything... but the problem is over detailed is over detailed. Am I talking too much? I think so.
This is very original, never saw this kind of a picture before. Seriously, this is making me laugh in so many ways. Of course, this is kinda shipping so it's not that original anymore.
I love the shades ( I think I'm doing the vision and technique now wrong. I'm not gonna move the text anymore. ) And lights! You have always done the prettiest _ NOT _ lined pictures. It's a plus. Soon you will be drawing portraits like the easiest thing ever! Only one thing bothers me. Apple Jack's hair shade. It's greenish. Should it not be more like brownish?
But this isn't maybe your best works. The background is the big problem. It's.. so simple when you look at it. When I saw this work this showed up actually to be the laziest work of yours.. No offence. Sorry if I'm rude, but you said: HONEST TRUTH. That's it! Little too long.. HERP. But if you want you can read all of this.
What do you think?

To be honest this is my first critique but I will try my best!~
First of all this is a very cute concept but it does need work.
One thing that i see here is that you are using black or something along the lines of black( a rather dark version of the color) for shading. That is fine for a few things but not always fantastic for others. just try setting the color only a bit darker than the Original color. The second thing I noticed was the hair texture. if you are shooting for realistic try smoothing the hair outline out a bit or make the hair sticking out longer. In Aj's eyes you should also put some high lights (shine) into it. even though the pupils are higher up the light is still shining on them.
Another tip is to not make the drawing that blurry. Put a few solid spots here and there ya know!~
the last thing is wobbly strokes. I know some artist cant help that in digital work but is all in carefulness. It is a bit hard at first but trust me, it will get easier!~
sorry if my critique is bad but it was my first = v =

Keep up the great work and have a wonderful day!~ U w U

I prefer the sketch a bit better, mostly cause I didn't' expect Rar to use greenish blue lipstick hehe   XD   Buut, that's just me..  I do like the work you did on both mane, they look exquisite.. And concur with below I was thinking red in my brain looking at the sketch.. Cool art still ^_^  I think I might watch I've been looking at your stuff the last 10 mins hehe

Thanks, I actually like the sketch better myself ironicly, but with all the requests for color I felt like it could use some. :)

I mostly made the lipstick blue to go with her magical aura, although I think red would have been a better choice now that I look back.... ^^;
AJ's face reminds me of WindWaker for some reason :)
It's my favorite ship
