Badge Awards

New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 7: Newbie Dash
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

This was quite the episode. Some cringe worthy but amusing moments, such as the Mane 6 impressions by Rainbow Dash. Seriously, though, one of the big parts of this episode, that's a bit emotional, is the fact that she actually made it into the wonderbolts! That was a dream since season 1! She... actually did it. Gotta give her that at least, a bit of pride for her, but then again her ego might slightly overshadow that haha. Either way, that's quite a long standing dream to be achieved, even if we did kinda expect at least something to happen.

Congratulations Rainbow Dash (or Crash)

Some great moments overall, and still a lesson. Something they still manage to sneak into episode ever since the beginning of the show. Sometimes feeling a sense of isolation, loneliness, or something along those lines, not realising that you're not alone. That others may very well be going through the same thing. But also that it's ok to make mistakes, it doesn't have to define us, but it does depend on how you handle it. RD had a rough start in that regard, but eventually it played out nicely.

As for the art process of this one, a bit longer piece again, although I took a long time with my sketches haha. I sketched all four of them out, slowly, but then I had to stumble over actually painting them... It helped they had the same uniforms... and the layering of the ones in the back teehee. The brushstrokes and details remained somewhat rough because of that, no real close up pass going over it, but at the same time, the scene allows a bit of that. Weighing the choices based on the fact I complete these in one session, and try to keep it manageable heh.

Approx Time: 11-12 hours

Disclaimer: No part of the following review is meant to discourage the artist into not creating more work nor is it meant to cause digital artists to stop drawing digital work. Nor to stop fans from creating fan based work. At no point is this meant to hurt feelings it is meant as an honest review of the picture and if the artist wishes to discuss the review or needs more details I would be happy to discuss it with them. Now without any further delay onto the review.

Vision: Okay there is some vision here but with it being taken from the show it looses some but not much for it was a great scene that it was taken from. 3.5 stars.

Originality: Thou this isn't any of the artists original characters it still has a hint of originality in it. For the artist put in a bit of themselves in the creating of this one. 3 stars.

Technique: Thou it's a digital work it is a well designed one a has the feeling of a water color or brush work. I would say a great job and 3.5 stars.

Impact: The choice in scene was well chosen here for it is just full of impact. It is right before Rainbow Does her own thing, yet while she was still looking awesome. 4.5 stars.

Overall it is an awesome and if I hadn't seen the episode yet I would have dashed off to go see it. I can't wait to see what this artist submits next.
