critique from Equimanipulation 
***please ig]nore all the silly brackets, I can't remove them D:

To start off, wow! This is so pretty! :'D 
Lacara looks so gorgeous =D
let me just say I LOVE the focus here
and the mood as well!
the eye colors are so g]ood
and, the lig]ht also!
WOW look at that detailing] : o dang]]g]g]g

ok now to move on to details c:
I feel the snowflakes look to unreal and not normal for this... maybe even blur them a tad, or just paint in snow flying] or g]et some other brushes 
the horse looks a little too saturated to be lacara, because she's pretty much colorless ;D also, it would fit in better if you lowerd the saturation a tad more <3
maybe add in some eyelashes too? : D
the hair is a tad roug]h, and needs more flow and dimension. start with a big] brush at 50 opacity, then g]o to little just don't overuse the little brush ^^
where the chain band thing comes to her mane, it needs to sit under also
the inside of the ear looks a bit noisy, maybe smudg]e it a tinsy bit
and also, lacaras hair a tad long]er c:

overall: wow mammoth you've ]gone so far since i've last seen you! keep of the amazing] work lovely, you'll be amoung] the stars in no time! : D

hope this helped, 
-amber :heart:
also, let me know if you have any questions! ;D

OHMYGOSH this is my first christmas present :')
Its gorgeous-thank you so much :tighthug:
Lacara looks stupendous and her chains are perfect:D may I suggest putting the hair layer over her chain layer though?:)  the prepping, like gurgaton said, is stunning and her eye is breathtaking-
My favorite part has to be the snowflakes though:) 
They just make the piece come together :heart:
