Aw Spike! You done bit off more than you can chew there buddeh! I have no idea what's going on here. Come up with your own idea of why Rainbow Dash is giving poor little Spike a ride for his life in the clouds.

Well.. okay one thing I will say, no I don't think it was a Discord thing. I do admit to having her colours be a bit washed out, but that was unintentional.

This is the product of what I called a "Chimera Livestream". Everyone in the livestream picked and agreed on various elements in the pic, including who is in it and it just took off from there.

Start-to-finish video for this pic: All 3 hours or so condensed into 4 minutes.

 ...when Spike gets just a *little* cocky after visiting dragon lands, and offhandedly remarks to Rainbow that her flight stunts aren't really *that* exciting.

"You're gonna grow wings one day, little dude! Better get used to the skies!!!"

Also, I don't know if that's Spike's tears or saliva there, but it's a nice touch. XD

Yeah, I can buy that Rainbow Dash hasn't been discorded.  Between the grin and the eyes, she looks more like she got possessed by a demon fresh out of Hell.  Very beautiful picture.  Also very funny.  Keep it up.

I was going to congratulate you for your excellent use of neutral colors, and you call your own painting "washed out"? Same on you for not learning from this, and especially for not taking pride in this excellence of a painting. This is for you. Shame on you !

Sweet! It's dynamic and fluid, and you did a nice job creating the illusion of distance between the characters, the clouds, and the ground below. Their faces, on the other hand, are pretty weird. It doesn't look like you could make these characters recognizable by their faces alone.

I just hope Dash is only having fun with Spike instead of being a sadistic bitch. The guy's crying, for Pete's sake.

:iconrainbowdashlolplz:-So now that you're getting used to the high altitude of the thin air up here in the skies,I'm gonna teach you about breathing to sustain your flight with thin air as a flier.

My idea is that Rainbow Dash is probably trying to give's Spike's possibly non-existent wings a little push to help start growing.

Poor Spike just wanted a chance to soar. Rainbow Dash, in the middle of it, decided to have some fun with him and started going fast. And doing all sorts of twists and loops and turns.
