Well a while back I promised to make a happy rainbow dash. so here she is. this is something that I've actually wanted to do for a while, ever since reading Tiny Wings [link] and now I've finally gotten around to it.
If you can't tell Scootaloo is dreaming of flying with Dash

if you have any suggestions to help me improve with my technique please don't hesitate to comment.
And as always you have my permission to use this, just please link back here.

Edit: I added a dark background to the picture because I felt that it gave a better impression that Scootaloo was dreaming

This.  Is.   Awesome!!!!!!!!!!    Okay, now that i'm no longer channeling Rainbow, this truly is wonderful - it catches Scoot's emotions so perfectly.  (Who wouldn't want a mentor/friend who's 20% cooler than everyone else??)

Very nice work!
I really like the 'fuzziness' of the manes and tails.
Gives a very nice texture!  =D

I'm still surprised and humbled that my little story inspired you, so thank you very much for the endorsement!  =)
I'm always glad to hear that someone enjoyed it as much as I liked writing it!

Keep up the great work!  :thumbsup:

Glad you like it :-) I meant for it to have a sort of a happy/sad feel to it. If you notice how Scootaloo's wings are so much larger in her dream compared to reality. In the story this is based off of Scootaloo has a condition that makes it so her wings won't grow to full size and therefore she will never fly.

Oh, I was wondering if that was what it was or if her wings were just small because they're folded. =)

Your art has really improved, I really like the mane/tail texture and the shape of RD's wings is spot on, makes it seem like she really is in motion. Good job :)

Thanks Sam! yea after months of mimicking other artists and struggling to come up with my own style I think I've finally found the one I want to keep. :-)
