This is wonderful. I love the leafy texture you added to the ground, it looks really nice. I planning to do something similar (I certainly don't have your skills though) for the final piece of my illustrations for the Bubbles fanfic.
I just thought it should be placedpartially inside the bowl so that way people might more easily recognize what it is. Just a simple small black circle with a line attached. Like a stick figure with no limbs. Nothing complicated. It was kinda hard to be sure what the bowl was because I thought it was flat, not round.
And in case it wasn't already obvious, your art is amazing. But you don't need me to tell you to know that.
And cmon, ponies always hold stuff with their hooves. Either that or she can hold it with her mouth.
