Well, something worth critiquing in the stack today. Most days it's people that probably shouldn't be asking for critiques because they need to let their art improve more. Well. Here we go
First off I love the styling of everything. Someone in the comments sections said this resembled something of a Tim Burton-esque type work. I'd say he's spot on, it resembles that dark in nature look, but not exactly TOO creepy in nature in a sense. It works very well. I enjoy the style you drew the ponies in. It looks like a rough sketch or a conceptual art piece of what is soon to be a greater work. And the way that the art is stylized to be dark, it compliments the fact that only harsh black lines are used.
In terms of cons I feel that while it looks like this work is supposed to be rough, it feel... A little too rough, there's no real work on the trees, there's a lack of cross hatching to create shading in the manes, and frankly anywhere else.(their manes just look overall messy). (this just bugs me personally) Twilights happy look kind of works in very deep contrast to everyone else in the pic she almost seems happy to be there. Lack of ground material makes the gradient in the grey scale pop out, I wish the moon had stronger light qualities, (just my own thought, but what isn't?) And I feel like the ursa minor and hydra don't have enough attention, I think they look really cool, but they don't stand out, and while I can understand why they're not It just feels that even though they shouldn't get as much attention as the mane six, their not even getting the attention that the parasprites of other foremost creatures are getting.
Well, I hope at least a part of this made sense. It may look like I don't enjoy the work, but honestly I really do appreciate it. It's original, and it brings something new to the table. I always like pieces like that. You're a great artist, keep on drawing and being awesome. :)
What do you think?

I really like this. I love the art style--it's very eerie and abnormal, quite reminiscent of the game you're referencing. They look creepy, but they still look somewhat cute, and that's hard to do.

The fairly low mark on Originality is simply because crossover stuff isn't very original, but I haven't seen any crossovers with Don' Starve before.

Honestly, I'm having trouble critiquing this, since I feel the crude art style really helps things and therefore shouldn't be changed. I suppose the backgrounds could be a bit more detailed, and Rainbow Dash turned out a bit odd mane-wise.

Also, not to nitpick, but shouldn't one of them be carrying a torch? It is not wise to go wandering around in the dark in this game.

fluttershy could tame beasts

Applejack can harvest apples from trees and her farms grow faster

Twilight can create a magica torch and fire but gets hungry faster

rainbow dash starts off with a weapon but needs to eat more

Pinky loses sanity faster if not with others but team gains sanity if around her

Rarity makes items with less materials.

I knew I recognized the "Don't Starve" style at one glance!
I wish to actually play it one day, but I don't think hard survival games is my style..
Anyways, I love how you put the simple Don't Starve details in there! :D

A base is something people use to put their own characters in certain situations or pose. Some deviants use them a lot.

I think it is a bit too dark.. or maybe that's just the angle I'm looking at it from my screen .-.

This makes me think of The Wizard of OZ when they go to steal the Witches broomstick.

I should probably look into the game... It seems to have a rather Tim Burton feel.

There's Twilight the Scientist, Pinkie the Firestarter, Rainbow Dash the Strongpony, Fluttershy the Bereaved... then this analogy starts kinda breaking down.
