Vapor Trailing

New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 24: Top Bolt
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

Return to the wonderbolt academy already?! Pretty nice actually, because we got to see a friendship dynamic we haven't really seen before. Like most friendships, they can be quite complex, and this was no exception hehe. On where both rely on each other, but might hold them back from seeing the truth. So a bit too much dependence. And with a good scenario to show where, why, how.

Taking a test to get into an academy or school or w/e can always be daunting, but often indeed involves an individual testing. Even the tests that are actually in a group will still rely on you being an individual being flexible enough to hold yourself up and work in any team configuration. Not just one specific individual. Although there of course still plenty of places where it can be exactly what you need to do better. Beyond that test. Where you're experienced enough not just with yourself but with a specific somepony else, where you become a well oiled machine.

Either way, it's an interesting dynamic, and the friendship problem here put the characters facing the truth. That Sky Stinger, though... was kinda mean he pulled the blame on Vapor. At least it didn't linger too long, but it was kinda embarrassing moment for him as well. Ignorance is bliss. There can be things said for both sides, though. From the start as a young colt, it seemed he wasn't really aware of the assistance Vapor gave to his abilities. Now how he got through all those years? Who knows. But I've seen very close friends stick close to each other through most of their lives, doing almost everything together. So that's not too far fetched.

Anywho. Twilight's face... Just have to mention that bit too. Oh and, Rainbow Dash, will she ever truly get her cider?

Vapor Trail look sort of like a mix of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy and Sky Stinger look sort of like mix of Rainbow Dash and Applejack... well, I see that way lol

You did a gorgeous job on the flying friends as they barrel roll. Sky and Vapor look fantastic, each with their individual expressions of delight. (Amazing work on their eyes.) I love the sense of action and excitement in the scene, and the blurred out background heightens the intensity of the feeling. Super lovely work.
