This is so cute! I love the translation from faun to pony with her fur turning into her mane and tail. Plus it's really fitting to draw Elora as a pony considering her original design was a centaur before it was changed into a faun.
It's nice to see Spyro and Elora again. I haven't seen them since Spyro and Elora: Under Mistletoe. It seems that Spyro have finally fully recovered from the flu and is hitching a ride on Elora's back. I wonder what Spyro looks like as a pony? He seems to be kinda the same size as Spike the Dragon. It's so adorable seeing them together and enjoying each other's company, not having a care in the world and having the time of their lives. I wish I could give you a critique on this but unfortunately, I don't have premium membership to do it. Anyway, I have noticed that you have used watercolours for this. Not that many people use traditional watercolours these days. I use them sometimes but that's 'cause doing digital artwork on the computer is so difficult. Heck, it might be even harder than doing 3D work. Back then, I used to mess up when it comes to utilising watercolours but that's 'cause I used water too much. I like how the watercolours blend with the black outlines and how the colours compliment each other.
By the way, is this drawing set in Equestria or somewhere in Spyro's world such as the Dragon Realms, Avalar or the Forgotten Worlds?
Is it just me or Spyro's eyes and the colours of his claws are totally wrong? Aren't his eyes supposed to be black or purple? In fact, his eyes have purple irises in the first three Spyro games. Also, the colour of his claws/talons are meant to be white. Not to mention, the shape of his eyes aren't supposed to look like that.

That reference is being hosted on an image board/chan where people just collect stuff and post it. I've had a lot of other work posted to sites like that, some which link to the source and some which don't, and that's fine by me.
If it helps, derpiboruu is basically a pony art aggregator site. The art is credited, and has a link back to the colouration by Katsaka (which in turn credits Razz with the original lineart), but presumably if the original artist wanted it taken down then they could report it.
