Nit pick and suggestion:
For the highlights on the metal bits, have you considered using harder highlights, less air brushyness-type effect? You know, like how you did the white highlights on the eyes? Generally, the shinging things like eyes, wet things and shiny metal look better with harder highlights and a sharper contrast between the dark and light bits. Of course, all this is just a suggestion.
SpoilerThe funny thing about the nerve injury was that for a while I was afraid it was something wrong with my carpal tunnel as the bottom of my right hand had was numb. I rested my wrists and hands but the sensation didn't go away. After a doctor visit turns out I must have hit my lower elbow at sometime as the doctor told me the nerve was injured there even though it felt fine besides a small prickly pain when a small spot on the nerve was poked.
After starting to rest my upper elbow (which felt fine) feeling started to return to my hand.
The whole event left me feeling extraordinary silly. Oh ye nerve problems.
C-9, or "I colored something. Mission Accomplished."
SpoilerI tried to give myself 1 hour to color a doodle. This is the result. It isn't that good.
More ponies in space, smuggling spice. Carrying crates, shooting guns. Scoot isn't going to shoot anyone like that and Applebloom is feeling guilty about unknowingly taking the safe caring position from Sweetie Belle. The colors are blargh, but I picked them with little second thoughts. The line work could be a lot cleaner too. And perhaps some different colors and not boring grey. Ok, there's a lot of things wrong with this doodle. Next time I guess.
Oh yes, and the tails are indeed, tacked on as a after thought.
