As I said, I continuing the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha influenced drawings, at least for the Mane 6 (Thought I have the feeling I'll continue it beyond the Manes. It's just to much fun.).
So the new one is with Rainbow Dash. But now I have to explane how the magical aura can be there and how the heck she can use it to hold that weapon thing.
In short: Help from a magical device.
In long, it always been my headcanon, that everypony has magical powers, but just unicorns could collect it and use it, to do, let's say, spells. And there are the pegasi who use this magic to fly and walk on clouds. Earth ponies can't use, because don't have an extra "limb".
So here comes in the magical device that actually help non-unicorn to collect this magic and use it. Hence the headbend on Rainbow.
Starnge as heck? Yeah, I know.^^'''
Again, just like with Twilight, Rainbow's armor also loosly based on her gala dress. But really loosly.Others:
