My first reaction: DAMN!!!!! THIS IS AMAZING :D!!!!
Now seriously, this art is rally astounding, the image conveys very well the pain that the pony is feeling, it's almost as if I could feel it!

Amazing work!

It looks fantastic!
But I think sta.sh version looks way better. Lines are less 'jittery?' and it looks more 'witerish'.

Poor Golden Wheat...
Why do folks keep calling her Amber Leaf? Her cutie mark is clearly the head of a wheat plant. They should visit wheat fields more often.

:iconhappyderpplz: VERY well done! Wow! Might I ask how you made the snow? I've had it mind to try my hand at a blizzardy scene some time in the future but I could definitely use some tips!

Awesome work.

I can see her struggling against the cold wind, but still keep going. Gosh! Those ponies are strong. More love for them.

Remember me that we'll get in this situation for the next 3 months.

Still called 'Crystal Pony'?
By now i heard different names for her.
'Amber Leaf' is my personal favourite from those. Fits to her cutie mark and doesn't bring the sadness from King Sombras magic into her name.

So where you life wheat heads do have veins, like the ones visible in her cutie mark?
Interesting.
To be fair, I don't know what leaf of which tree it is - maybe a stylised oak leaf? - but i never thought of it as a wheat head.

Here are images of wheat, but mostly they're from western countries so you don't see the ones with a stem at the centre of their 'heads'. [link]

Yes wheat heads do have a stem, but they dont have veins spreading to the left and right from this. Altought the single corns in a wheat head are have a sharp end, not such a round, like you see in her cutie mark. And the the small grass like stems growing ot of every single one are completly missing as you should already noticed, because it's so wonderful visible on most of the pictures in google. Oh and wheat is not brown or amber, as the name comes from the color, more golden.
Besindes, when hundres of bronys and even the mlp wikia says it's a leaf, there are not much options: We are only a few tousand, who don't know how wheat looks like or we and you are both wrong or only you.
Then why must the name fit her cutie mark so strictly? I don't find the word ballloon in PinkiePis name, gem in raritys or flower in cheerilees - so exceptions are not such a uncommon thing.
