yeup wanted to do something related to the recent episode c:
issues and errors indeed I'm working on it XD

animal awareness: Lol I may sound like a jerk while you read this:
Knowing is always the first step (edit 1)I've decided to make this journal and post if on every drawing that I will create from now on.
If you know, you have the power to spread it
Things to know...
Farm animals: What on your platter there? some nice meat. You think that poor children are sad? At least it isn't a holocaust. Farm animals literally live in a holocaust their whole life. They are treated as nothing but tools of money. Who in the world would beat a child and leave them in a sunless room their whole life? Cut them alive? Let illness taint them until they're blind? You think animals don't have feelings? they have intelligence. That should be plainly obvious.

Trophy Hunting: Ever seen some animal heads or skins anywhere and looked at them going " oh its so fluffy
Derpy IS BACKKKKKKKKK c:
I LOST ALOT OF LAYERS IN THIS ;^;
Originality: I have seen Rainbow Dash art where she's in just about every situation. But showering under a fountain of rainbows on a cloud? Who else?
Technique: It's near impossible to start somewhere. The liquid effect on the rainbows makes the art alive. Rainbow's coloration with the darker spots is shading mastery. The clouds are simple and complex at the same time. The flare from the sun makes the art almost feel warm.
Impact: But Rainbow herself doesn't seem to be warm. She looks sad, like when you take a shower kind of sad. I have never felt any outside emotions towards artwork, but I felt like I was having a heart attack and crying at the same time. The birds and sun add atmosphere. She looks to be missing someone. Just perfect.

The background looks quite amazing, too!!!
She looks so sad.
...Why?!?!? Now I'm sad...
But I guess I'm happy now that it came out, cause it inspired You to make this one ^_^
You know... I almost always gasp at how beautiful Your style is, but I rarely say, how beautiful Your ideas are
And this one... just... my God it's one of the best I've ever seen... if I even ever thought about something as marvelous as this is I would just discard it as "impossible to draw", but You... You are just drawing, and it looks so incredible.
I especially love how You did this "liquid rainbow"... it flows and splatters in so realistic way, which is especially impressive since it actually interacts with Rainbow Dash... You can really capture these things on paper... emm... tablet... whatever You are really good at observing and world and nature
Also... it makes for a pretty sweet wallpaper
