She looks great! What program are you using? I personally use Photoshop Elements and have multiple layers set up for adoptibles. Sometimes though you just have to tinker around until you find the correct way to create a specific persona. Like on my Rainbow Flash adopt I have 8 layers but some personas require more. The template has a the pony base, shading, closed wings, ribbon, cutie mark, open wings, horn and twinkle eye.

I use Photoshop Elements as well. :D

I just had a layer for the lines and a layer for the body colors.

I think it looks good. Pixel art can be tricky. I can manage the basics but I still haven't really mastered shading and whatnot. So it's an ongoing process and you're off to a good start. :)
