Rainbows by AleximusPrime Rainbows by AleximusPrime
GAH! First time submitting something with this stupid new upload layout! I HATE IT!!! :iconfrageplz:

Anyways, this one was the hardest to do so far because of having to draw the shadow of the wing and then having to have so many layers for different colors for her rainbow hair. The colors were tough to do because they kept overlapping each other so I had to make 2 separate layers to split the neighboring colors apart from each other but they were still overlapping. I also had trouble deciding what to call it cuz her cutie mark is also lightning and a cloud but I think Rainbows fit the most. Oh well, it all got done anyway and Dashie looks great! :D

I guess Butterflies will be next. You all can guess who that is. :P

Pretty good work here again. I really like the intensity of those rainbow colors. I don't normally work with traditional media myself, so that's impressive to me.

I like the way you pulled off the shading for this one. Applejack looked too dark and colorless in places, and Rarity was fine because her coat is white anyway. But here, you seem to have found a pretty happy medium giving some decent sense of structure with the shading, while not taking away from the color of the coat.

Speaking of shading, I really like the way the wing casts its own shadow on her hind leg. Nice attention to detail. However, it seems to me she could use a little bit of shadow near the top of her head, towards the back, cast by her bangs. I might also suggest just throwing in a little bit more shading in the hair itself, and intensifying the highlights a little bit, to give us more a sense of the structure of her hair.

I like the pose. She looks like she's rearing back slightly, ready to launch herself forward, presumably because she's challenging the viewer to a race. It's done pretty well, but I might have gone a little bit more extreme with the angling of her legs and back, bringing her fore-hooves a bit more forward. It would have intensified her pose, and would have distinguished it a little better from Applejack's pose.

Overall, great job. Great addition to the series. :)

Why is she so much stubbier than the other ones?

Probably because she's crouching down. Where does she look stubbier?

She's not crouching down. If she were crouching, she would have bended limbs, but theres limbs aren't bended, they're just stubby.

I misspoke. I mean her legs are spread apart more and her body is lower to the ground making her shorter and since her legs are more slanted then straight like the others so far, then from this angle they may look shorter and stubbier. Physics.

Comparing it to Applejack's, who isn't as spread out but is the closest, it doesn't match up. She doesn't look spread out, she looks stubby. If they were to be juse make her closer to the ground, Her legs would be longer but just stretched out or bended more. This does neither.
