A True Lead Pony by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen A True Lead Pony by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
There are some drawings I want to upload today, but let's start of with the one that is connected to the new episode.

You know guys, I have to say, after the episode Rainbow Dash grown in my eyes. Don't take me wrong, I like Rainbow Dash, I like everypony, it's just that some ponies have some personality treats that I'm not so fond of, make them not my top favs. Like Rainbow Dash.
But than, in this episode she showed true loyalty. I serously said 'Oh my God' out loud, when she would had given up her dream.

She really showed that, if anypony deserve to be a Wonderbolt than it's her. Tumbs up, RD, you are awesome.

Regarding the episode: I think it's ridiculous to say Rainbow Dash "grew" in it. They just started writing her how they did in the first season again.

Regarding the pic: It's beautiful. You really captured her pure joy at the exhilaration of flight.

Dash has been my favorite since the beginning (I can really relate to her, flaws and all), but developments such as this keep making my love and admiration for her grow. She truly does have what it takes to be among the best of the best--physically, mentally, morally...a most worthy Lead Pony and Wonderbolt candidate.

ALSO, the picture is GREAT. Dashie, you've got every right to be that proud and ecstatic!! 8D

Beautiful image. It really makes her look regal. This was actually one of my favorite episodes, and I wasn't a RD fan until it. She does have a lot of.. flaws that make her a tad irritating, but she really grew. I was so happy to see it.

This is so gorgeous. I love the colors and her facial expression. Pure bliss in that smile.

beautiful dash
Kytelian Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
I'm not a huge Rainbow Dash fan myself, but I must say her character has grown SIGNIFICANTLY since the beginning of the series. I really enjoyed her in this most recent episode and thought that her courage and willingness to do what was right was outstanding. I also found that Lightning Dust was almost a mirror image of who Rainbow Dash was at the start of the series. There are differences of course, but the basic personalities are the same. It was really cool to see Dash grow beyond what she was. =]

We seem to see many examples of Dash's brash and and impulsive nature, but yeah, this is also something that is core to her character. We also see this way back in the season 1 pilot. Dash is offered her dream of being a flight captain (putting aside the fact that she'd never heard of a "Shadow-Bolt" and that it was fake), and she turns it down outright in favor of helping her friends. Without hesitation, without second thought or regret. It's totally within her character to be loyal to a fault, to put her own dreams and desires aside if those things compromise the trust she has with her friends and compatriots.

Great work as always. :)
cajobif Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
I always liked Rainbow Dash. She's rash and arrogant quite often, but she shown some weaknesses like insecurity and the fear of loneliness, being abandoned. Also she can be cute and emotional. I like her "OhmygoshOhmygoshOhmygoshOhmygoshOhmygoshOhmygosh!"

The episode shown how Rainbow Dash is awesome and I like this drawing of your with that big happy smile in her face.

Now, after her dream so far quite close to be obtain, we will probably a bit different RD in the following.

I like the way you did the tail.
DragonTurtle2 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
You've done a good job of differentiating this piece from the rest of your work, where the ponies all tend to share the same faces and expressions. This is a great expression for Rainbow, and not one I've seen you do before.
Droccy Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
She's just one step closer to being a Wonderbolt. Here's to hoping a future episode where she becomes one.
Magic3W Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
I love how it turned out. Nice work. +fav

PS: Big wings are awesome!
Karach0s Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
Oh, look, she still has the wing from the Trixie incident (2.0). :D
Kidding, great work. :) Her face literary screams victory.

crasydwarf Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
It's like you copy pasted my thoughts with that description. :o

Totally share your sentiments.
Rainbow had also been rubbing me a bit to rough this season, but the last 2 episodes really helped casting her in a whole new light.
