Vision: This art is many things. But what awes me is how you manage to create such skilled art on such short notice.

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.
What do you think?

When it comes to drawing for me, THE BACKGROUND IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS. Especially when it comes to nature with its details and Oh my god I'm getting a bunch of inspiration looking at these. I'm just gonna do another nature based non pony drawing because HOLY CRAP YOU'RE AMAZING.

Interesting particle effect on the rainbows in the background. The composition needs to be a little more refined. 
The space around the focus of the piece doesn't seem to have an overall form, and looks kind of static and endless. 
Don't worry though it still looks great and you got the message across :)

This is just nothing I've ever seen before. Just WOW! and almost every art I see in My Little Pony Fandom is about happiness. I like how you've done in Rainbow Dashes sadness but with rainbow colors. I find this saddening to me and yet I'm fascinated.
guess this is probably the perfect art for having a bad day.

I feel that a lot people would need a shower under it. It would bring them the colors their strives to bring in their lives. Or simply stains.

BEautiful work

I...I... I... didn't liked this episode... at all ^^;
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 :D
And this one... just... my God :jawdrop: 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 :nod:

Also... it makes for a pretty sweet wallpaper ;)
