There are times when a single mare knows more than all books in the world. Shining Armour knows that well.

A nice piece, even though it's not your characters. I like the fact that you altered the design of the my little pony style and the facial expressions are good. It gave me a good laugh and the idea works well, even if it's not an inspiring thought. You've copied the colours nicely and you haven't strayed too far from the original design, so their still recognisable.

In short, it's well done funny and is drawn well. The only thing I don't like as much is the background because the colouring doesn't vary much and makes it a little bit dull so try to make it more interesting.

Critique Time! Here we go:

Vision: It reflects the idea of marriage that Shining Armour seems to carry a lot in this fandom.

Originality: I've seen a lot of almost perfectly drawn versions of the ponies, but this is so far away that it's refreshing. The characters are simple, but their expressions are so memorable. It's one of the many reasons I keep coming back to look at this piece.

Technique: Simple but effective. Sometimes, even parodies can be art within themselves. This is one of them. Twilight Sparkle makes some of the funnies expressions that I've ever seen in a comic. Shining Armour is the character that really brings the comic back to Earth(?) and it's really effective seeing them play off each other.

Impact: I wouldn't be back here several times if it wasn't impacting.

Overall: It has flaws (what's with the fire?), but it's endearing for them. Like an innocent puppy, it does some things crudely, but we forgive it because it's so beautifully cute and rewarding.

I'm surprised Twilight didn't jump straight into the fire to rescue it.

That phrase never gets old. XD  
Looks like Shining Armor is learning the important phrases: Yes dear, of course dear, you're absolutely right dear, You're ALWAYS right dear. Am I right? :D
That's what my dad was telling me to remember when I find a wife. XD
Raven: You know what one phrase I think you should remember? Sod off, w-

Dr. X: Please do not finish that sentence.

Raven: Oh, whatever...
Raven: I'll make it simple: I hate women. Simple enough for ya?
