Rainbow Dash in the Sky by Dread555 Rainbow Dash in the Sky by Dread555
Got a new image here, decided I would try a new kind of style.

Decided to go ahead and actually work with some colors for once lol (well, at least it's been a LONG time since the last time I used colors lol).

As a change of pace, I decided to draw one of the mane cast (rainbow dash) from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, in my own style of course.

I just kinda felt this wave of inspiration that made me go "I MUST DRAW PONY" XD, but it was really fun doing this piece and only took me about an hour or so, and pretty much one of the only images that i drew out from start to finish with no breaks (COLORED even).

only thing I had a hard time on was the tail, I just couldn't decide what to do with it, and if making it a certain angle would make it look awkward or whatever. but I'm happy with what i got.

The image i had in my head was of rainbow loftily hanging in the air, relaxed and calm, almost asleep, just keeping herself in the clouds.

hope you all enjoy :D

It's funny. The mane and tail look more like fur than hair but it's kinda cool. :)

thanks.

yeah it does look more like fur lol. I was more used to drawing fur, and forgot that when it comes to equines that they have a different style to their hair and tail.

yeah, there was supposed to be a much lighter strand of blue (or darker, i could go either way), but it just started to look awkward and got mixed up with the other blue.
