Well, lets start with this pic's greatest flaw - it has no Applejack ;P

The concept here is very clear and quite striking with three ponies sleeping, while Luna, Princess of the Night, guards their dreams as she was set to do. The general spread of details gives it a touch of majesty, becoming all the more eye-catching.

Originality is always hard to grade; on one hand Luna has been almost overused among fandom; but, the ironic part is, I rarely see her in a setting befitting the character (unless we're talking about portraits). To that end, it's a nice change of pace to see someone playing real homeage to her.
The overall design has the feeling of uniqueness, even though such a scene is not particularly new as a whole. I, for one, find such a mix refreshing.

The technique is very eye-catching indeed; Luna virtually shines and glitters in front of the black, night sky, whiel Fluttershy, Rainbow and Scootaloo look adorable (if you ignore the mild subtext that some can trace in the pic) with their manes flying all over the place. All this is very stunning.
The background, however, could use some improvement. Overall it's very decent, but the lack of any stars in the sky takes away some magic from this piece. Another thing is the fact that some parts of it feel like they were done in a different style then the rest of the work; this is specifically striking with the meadow that surrounds the characters; it seems a tad weathered by comparison with everything else.

The impact is the most interesting of the bunch - while it is undeniable, it remains very gentle, sipping into the viewer only it the latter allows it to. That is a very unique outcome that I rarely see among fanart; on one hand Luna's majesty and grace is almost striking and yet it's toned down to a level that it wouldn't beam from the piece.
Similarly, the peaceful nap of the trio spreads across the borders of this work filling it with serenity, a form of beauty even, but also this is somewhat overshadowed.
The ironic part is that I find that very fitting for the concept, nodding to the calm nature of the night, when most creatures drift off into the land of their dreams, more often then not getting wrapped in fantasy, that is evident in this piece. Luna in particular stands strong, becoming the introduction to the whole as she spreads her wings, almost like she was inviting the recipants to winnow the rest of this pic with their eyes.

The impact of this piece may not be "strong", but that's not necessary a bad thing; often a more subtle message is more suitable and, undoubtfully, this is one of those cases; while some more detail in the background would've made this work even more stunning, it fare's very well even now... despite not having AJ ;P
What do you think?

Not bad, the theme of the piece isn't bed persay, its just that the image of Luna kinda does'nt fit right to me. Perhaps if the background extended up a bit and Luna were smaller but with larger/longer magic swirls coming off her horn it would be a bit more apparent as it took me a moment to figure out what exactly was going on. Over all its an appealing piece. =)

Vectors are great hybrid of art and math, because theoretically everything what You will draw is "some kind of uniqueness" and in the other hand everything what You will draw is "described by mathematical formules" - so you have something "beauty" - just look - on that implication - You havnt to be artist to draw beautiful vectors and You havnt to be math-teacher to see beauty of math during drawing vectors :)

I treat my projects as art of me and my Awesome Watchers - thanks that - with every single curve I receive a sparkle of motivation - then - drawing progress is just like dialog between me and my Audience - When I`m drawing I have purposes
1) Make people happy
2) Show myself and other that I`m able to show some beauty.
3) I want to draw ponies on this way, that everyone will see on picture that what He/She want to see (for example - child will see hero from favorite cartoon, sensitive person will see pure beauty, someone Who is watching on Ponies as "magnificent creature" - will see beauty of Pony`s bodies).

Additional motivation is this, that I`m using "free-software" - (commercial AI is too expensive in my country) and I`m going to show that You are able to draw something stunning by using free software.

You are officially the most awesome person I have met on DeviantArt. And yes, I agree with your motivations. Some people only make art for money, prestige or popularity. Artists should only make art of what they envision and let their audience come to them.

The muscular neck on Luna is a bit unnecessary, it's more of a this artists stile [link]
But the picture is adorable and has a lot of work in it. Luna's mane is beautifu land Scootaflutterdash sorounded by Poison Joke is adorable. I took a liberty to zoom in and look at the details, and I am afraid of asking how many hours is in there. xD
Really superb work and Lunas mane is most beautiful of all pictures.

Uwierz mi Inkscape pod koniec też się zatykał - jak dostał prawie 16,5 tys obiektów i ponad 59k węzłów to miał problemy - choćby z tego względu że nie wspiera maszyn wieloprocesorowych więc w moim przypadku to tak 1/4 - 1/8 (bo rdzenie 2-wątkowe) wydajności - no niestety polskie realia sprawiają że kupno Illustratora dla kogoś kto rysuje dla czystej zabawy, satysfakcji i chęci dawania radości innym jest dość sporym wydatkiem - co jest smutne bo to nie trzeba daleko jechać bo już w Wielkiej Brytanii za 3-4 dni pracy stać Cię na luksus jakim jest AI - choć nie posiadanie AI ma też zalety bo pokazuje że przy użyciu darmowych programów też można zdziałać cuda (nie mam tu na myśli moich prac :) lecz prace Innych po wielokroć lepszych ode mnie). Cóż może kiedyś kupię AI - bo Inkie dobry jest ale zaczyna być wąskim gardłem.
