Samurai Rainbow Dash by Skirtzzz Samurai Rainbow Dash by Skirtzzz
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 :')

Ironic that she would use a zanbato, or "horse cleaver."

I guess the loyalty aspect fits the job, though I'd think she'd be something more like a thief, something that requires much more agility/speed. XDDD

Ah, well, it's very entertaining to look at, nonetheless. xD

Absolutely love this one! 

Now I so want this as a print.  Though certainly exceeded my expectations.  I initially thought of Rainbow Dash as a warrior but seeing her as a Samurai is 120% cooler.

So now we have Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy. 

This leaves Rarity, Applejack and Pinkie Pie.  I have a few ideas, as I mentioned before about those three.  The only real x-factor is Pinkie.  I have a vague notion of which dress sphere would be for her but other than that I'm drawing a blank.

Looking cool. With the facial expression she reminds me of Jetstream Sam from MGR: Revengenance.
