Phwew!! This one was actually quite the challenge. Incorporating the rainbows was one thing, but the samurai sphere is never a walk in the park! Here's hoping I was successful with this- I'm actually really relieved with how it looks! Tried really hard to keep the movement she had in the sketch this started as (I'll totally share process sketches when these are all done!).

Anyway, artsy-fartsy jargon being said- gcGreengrass (The commissioner of this series) wanted Rainbow Dash to be the brave and badass Samurai! I think it's a really fun fit!! Tried to convey as much of her attitude as possible with this :') 

*Runs finger across neck* "Kttchkk! You're goin' down!"
