Sonic Rainboom in 3...2...1



Sorry for not posting recently. Life has been keeping me busy at work, home and in the studio. Also we have had very sporadic internet cable on occasions. This is a color study I did for a larger piece I hope to do soon. Since that larger piece will require several more complicated elements of color, lighting and perspective I decided to do a simpler research piece first to figure out how certain will work. This is result of my homework. I have never seen Rainbow Dash perform a Sonic Rainboom in my Equestria dreamscape but this is how I imagine it would look just a fraction of a second before it occurred.

I'm thinking of selling this piece to help raise additional funds for going to Everfree Northwest. Yep, I am going to my first pony con this summer. I have my airline tickets, membership and hotel room all worked out. If any my watchers are going I'll be there.

As is typical of my traditional color work it is a primarily colored pencil with some marker, technical pen and gouache added to it. It is done on a piece of vellum finish Bristol Board and is roughly about 9.5" x 12".

This is OBVIOUSLY a good drawing. Seeing it as Rainbow Dash's forehooves are "on fire" basically gets me, since she's traveling at almost the speed of sound. ANOTHER thing is that her mane and tail are streaming back like if I were to put my face in that, it will hurt A LOT.
Yet another thing that gets me is how her muzzle isn't flapping in the wind like it does on the TV series. I'm not trying to offend you or anything, but seeing how you cross the TV series with real life, you should try and work on that part. Still, you do A LOT better than me, and I hope that you can do a tutorial on how to do this, so I can draw stuff like this, too!
P.S.: If you could put Spike on her back, that would be cool; seeing him hold on tight for dear life...yeah...that's all up to you. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="390" title="=) (Smile)"/>
