Service Guarantees Harmony - Would you like to know more?

It's a day to Celebrate Rainbow Dash over on Equestria Daily, and I'm finally getting back into a pony groove after an extended absence over the holidays.  We're getting into the final season of FIM, and I'd like to go out with a bang...  So have some war-torn Rainbow Dash from the Sombra Wars timeline.  This dystopian Dash design had a surprisingly modern look to her, complete with body armor and prosthetic wing, and she ended up being a lot of fun to draw.  Despite the harshness of her timeline, I couldn't help but to give her a bit of core Dash's smirk... she knows she makes for an awesome recruitment poster. 

I hope to be doing a lot more artwork this year, and I have a fair share stored up from last year that still needs to be shared as well.  I'll be starting a patreon while still posting things here as well, so I'll have to keep myself busy!

Ah yes, I think this timeline was one of the best ones. The good guys hadn't actually lost yet and Dash looked like a total BAMF. I guess Sombra really was the weakest Big Bad, since every other villain seemed to have defeated Celestia and Luna just fine in the other timelines. Maybe the only reason the war was even still going on in this timeline was because the crystal ponies are incredibly tough. It's just my headcanon, but I think crystal ponies are physically much more powerful than regular earth ponies and also more durable against all kinds of attacks, including magic. I don't see how else Equestria's forces hadn't overpowered them by sheer numbers alone.

Anyway, I love this picture, and welcome back! I'll be looking forward to all the art you'll share with us this year and I have faith that FIM will end with a bang. Season eight was mostly great, so I'm quite optimistic.

I give Sombra credit for holding his own without any kind of trump card power...  just a ruthlessness to use his own people to get what he wants.  

Well, it’s not really to his *credit*, but hopefully you know what I mean.

Thanks for the kind words, and I hope you enjoy what I have to come!

While I'm glad Prime Timeline Dash remains unharmed, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention her cybernetics look pretty hardcore.

That episode surely left a big mark on fans I suppose. But all-natural Dash is the best for me, because she wasn't hurt. Though, despite this, she didn't lost her cuteness.

Awesome work, Harwicks.

Thanks!  I prefer the real Dash myself, but alternate looks are always fun to explore.

That's true. When it's not in the show it's in many alternate universes thanks to tons of fanfics.

I thinks it's the desire of change for some character after seeing her so many times the same way. Like Twilight's manestyle in that short.

I would like to know as well.  The Crystal War time line remains one of the most epic events I have seen in MLP.  The Season 5 Finale itself was so amazing that is has jaded me and I am left longing for something to eclipse it in future Seasons.  I would re-live all of 2015 just to see Season 5 for the first time again.

So yeah. Equestria is a place where unicorns and dragons can spontaneously grow wings, if you lose one you get a mechanical one that
works just as well, but if you're born handicapped like Scootaloo, nothing can be done.

*steps off soapbox* Other than that, love the picture. I especially like the way how you've coloured RD's tail in the sunlight from behind her.

Equestrian medical limits are a curious thing, definitely.  Poor Scoots...
