Here is Rainbow Dash in her wedding dress.  If you look closely you can see a little earring on her.  Anyway, this is one of my greats.  I mean, it's great.  I'm trying not to compare it to some pieces done by AssassinMonkey and Huussii and others because I did awesome.  Rainbow would be proud. 

I've also included a WIP picture to show how I've done it. 

Music: mixed epic and feel good tracks
Time: weeks
Tools: Wacom Create and PS CS6.

Featured on EQD!?!?!?  What an honor!!!!



EDIT: I will be remastering this sometime soon.  Just don't expect it to be done for a bit.  I tend to take my time with pieces like this.

Wrong actually.  In this picture she's getting ready to be married to my ponysona Taelyyys.  It's a part of an unreleased chapter of my ponyfic.  I actually wanna remaster this, because at the time it was the peak of my abilities.  I've gotten a lot better and I feel like it should be done.

Oh my goodness, she is beautiful! Great work! ^^

She looks like she grew in size, she has a similar body frame to that of Cadance. ^^

I did base her off Cadence so... yeah.  My favorite part about her is her eyes and her foxy curls.  And thanks!!  (BTW she's Cadence's age in the picture.  It's the wedding scene in the light side ending to my third book.)

She looks amazing. And as epic as you'd expect her to want to look; she'd want to increase her awesomeness instead of something frilly.

The background ponies want to murder me! Who's the really tiny one?

With the really tiny one I was just doing something to show some diversity of age and things.  And the rest of them, well, they were only my first try at a real crowd.  Not as good as I expected but I think a good effort right?

Ah, I wondering if she was maybe supposed to be Zipporwhill. 

And the crowd looks good. Was just something about the expressions... can't put my finger on it, maybe 'cause I haven't got an artistic bone in my body. lol.
