For such a unique prompt like this, I think you executed it very well.

Let's start with the pony. First of all, I know you've mentioned having trouble with poses before, but in this case, I think you did pretty well. For a position that we don't really see ponies in, you made it look really natural, and the proportions of everything are still correct. The middle section of the hind legs look pretty narrow though compared to the hips and hooves, so keep an eye out for that. Your style of drawing ponies is maturing nicely: you're starting to strike a good balance between show-like outlines&proportions and finer details.

The lighting was very well-done in this image. Between the computer light and the street light coming in through the window, the lighting seems very plausible. The reflections of the screen in the pony's eyes are a nice touch. If anything, the street light is lighting up too much of the back of the pony's mane and tail. It should probably be fainter.

While I like the overall style of it, there is some room for improvement in the setting. First of all, with the perspective you used, I feel like the floor of the room should be visible. Secondly, the almost show-like style of the pony doesn't blend well with the less rigid and more painterly style of the room. Both styles are good, but they don't compliment each other very well. Lastly, it seems like you had some trouble with the books. The inner books are thicker than the bookshelf (possibly to accommodate the book titles), so you ended up making the Horse Wife book an awkward shape. Also, is the dark block next to the Aurelleah book supposed to be a book too?

While I'm talking about the bookshelf, I like the book titles and the Shining Armor plushie. Little details like that do a lot to improve images. The calendar (is that the one you sell?) is another nice touch. Speaking of which, I like the pony's expression. He looks pretty exhausted.

All in all, nice work Aurelleah. As an artist that's still growing, you have some details left to refine, but that doesn't prevent you from putting out well-thought out and nearly immersive images like this one.
What do you think?

This picture is perfect the way it is! Its as good as the Luna one in the spaceship, or the Celestia one! GREAT JOB

[rant] I wish people would stop complaining that ponies don't go with background. The contrast between pony and background adds flavor and makes it better! The pony stands out beautifully. Actually in this case the pony and the background look like they are done in a similar style. But at any rate, even assuming it's not, why should the pony have to blend in seamlessly to the background, is that a requirement for something? Would it make any sense to say to that artist to stop drawing ponies so big because it doesn't fit? NO, it is supposed to be that way in their art, just as aurys background contrast is supposed to be here! Also, the pony DOES look like its part of the picture. It is sitting in the chair looking at the computer. [/rant]

Less contrast between the pony and the background would NOT help this picture at all, in fact it would hurt it. I hope Aury does not change, 

Also YAY CALENDARS!
