Lightning Chaser

Another speedpainting I did for Bronycon! I've decided to do the thing I did last year, which was essentially make as much art as possible via speedpainting and make them into either medium or small prints for a larger variety in that department. The themed paintings will be the large print variety. c:

This piece was very experimental for  me. Despite still being primarily traditional I wanna better myself at Digital art so it can be a larger part of my arsenal, so I decided to really play around with how I went about this one. I went with a more sketchy look and used black as the primary method of shading, and I think that sharp, sketchy look works pretty well given the content of the image. c: I enjoyed working on it, that's for sure. It took me about 3 hours to complete. ^.^

As for the overall idea behind this: Rainbow Dash is pretty magically skilled, to the point that she is able to produce short bursts of lightning with a charged flap of her wings or even conduct it from her mouth (a skill she learned as a party trick, but developed overtime). Due to her use of lightning-based magic and having a high level of magical chakra flowing through her body, she's essentially electricity-proof, hence why she can fly through a lightning storm without much worry. But being electric-proof doesn't mean she can fly scott-free; she still gotta be careful when flying in a storm this intense! o:

Buuuuuuut yeah. I hope you guys enjoy this, and feel free to ask questions if you have any! ^.^
