Have one more spoof poster where I try out new things and make my job a complicated mess.

You may think you've left your past behind, but that doesn't mean your past is done dealing with you. That's what Rainbow Dash has to put up with, as the shadow of a past memory comes back to torment her.

I'm sure some of you may think I should've used Zapp from the Power Ponies, considering that Rainbow Dash never put herself on the Mare do Well costume, but I think that passionately hated episode had a lot more to do with Dash's personality than the Power Ponies one, so I went with this one. Besides the parallelism between Mare do Well and Batman is exactly like the parallelism between Birdman and Batman. So I went with this.

Figuring this one out took longer than actually drawing it. I hadn't done something minimalistic in forever, and trying to capture the cell-shaded style of this poster took longer than I would've hoped for. But still, I'm glad I managed to complete it, and I'm glad I managed to get this idea out of my head. I hope you all enjoy it!

I think Rainbow would don the cape and hat.

It certainly bears a striking resemblance to the original Birdman-style poster. Love the way it turned out! :D
