I like the idea behind this. You have an insanely massive pile of books and lighting that really shows that she's not exactly the type to go outside the enjoy the nice weather.

Little odd things I could catch include the style you went for the flooring. A lot of things here looks like it's based off of the library she lives in but the floor here does not appear to belong to that library. The curve of the tail also doesn't seem to properly convey that a pony's tail is mostly hair; shouldn't gravity pull it down? Her right hoof also appears rather flat as most of it is a solid color compared to other parts in this piece. Also consider the angle of light... the dust in front of the window conveys an angle of light which shouldn't reach the bottom of the stack of the books. I also feel the speck of red from that cloth thing from the book might be a needless distraction.

You should also be aware of your perspective. Look at the aqua-colored book on the bottom. It does not appear flat on the ground. I think mistakes like that can be avoided if we sketched out a grid of sorts for the floor according to a vanishing point.

Your colors are unified and that's definitely a plus. I have a hunch that somebody might feel a bit nitpicky over how Twilight is colored a bit differently from show-accuracy, though I am one to disagree with show-accurate coloring from time to time.

Great coloring with a great idea behind this piece, but potentially wonky perspective and lighting that looks off.

(First off, sorry if sometimes do not understand what I say, I use a translator)
This way to give color to the drawings, for me, has always been original. The pony drawing came intact and really looks like Twilight Sparkle. It was very original Twilight which is always studying, and the pile of books is not exactly stop until I know what she wants. That's what I see in the picture.
As for the details, I can tell you that are minimal, by the fact that you drew it this way ... So I say you are right.
Finally, a comment: You did not need to put the big chair, but had made ​​Twilight with many books around. Although, in a way, it gave more originality to your drawing.
Excellent work.

Haha! Probably impractical, but highly humorous and very much something I can imagine Twilight doing :).

Nice shadows too.

I think you misunderstood me. I cropped it on my hdd, without uploading anywhere, just for the sake of making it fit for a wallpaper for me.

No worries. It looks fine the way it is. I was mostly teasing you because there's the funny scene with the parasprites eating words. :hug:
