Crits Requested on Pattern

Hey all, I think this is my first post here :)
I was wondering if you had a moment, if you could critique my My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic filly pattern. I made it a Ponyta just to test everything, so you can ignore the mane and eye style.

One thing I can spot is the ears could stand to be a little higher up on the head than they are now. I also need to cut the neck at an angle I guess, I had to hand-tack the head so it was looking straight ahead. You can't tell that from the photo though.
Anything else?
Thanks for your time! ^^

I love the faux fur! The body gusset looks like it needs to be wider at the chest and perhaps deeper darts where it meets the legs, so they don't go out in a v shape. Also make the butt taller? Good luck in your patterning!

Thanks for the crit! I didn't notice those areas before. :)

Looks great! The only thing that catches my eye as "off" are the front legs.

If I were designing a pattern like this I think I'd make the outer front legs part of the body pattern and add a belly gusset. You could make the inside legs part of the belly gusset with "underarm" darts, or, perhaps less fiddly in the long run, make the inner legs separate. Look at the third and fourth pattern pieces and maybe the making-up instructions here which may illustrate what I am failing to describe in words. ^_^;

I hope this helps! I really think you're on to a good pattern here. I love the head shape especially!
