Rainbow Dash by nikohl Rainbow Dash by nikohl
Back in March I completely fell in love with My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. I had heard about it and, of course, couldn't help but think, "My Little Pony? Really? No way the show can be good." (I was never the girl who was into anything like MLP when I was young, so why oh why would I be interested in it now?)

And now I'm drawing fanart. Now, I have never before completed any fanart. The most I've ever done has been doodle characters in my notebooks. To actually sit down and take the time to sketch, then outline and color a piece of fanart is a big thing for me.

I love all the ponies, but I settled on Rainbow Dash to draw.

Sketched on paper. Outlined and colored in Photoshop Elements 5.

So, time for a standard disclaimer? I don't own My Little Pony, Hasbro does. I just drew this picture.

I am the same way, but I love writing and drawing at the same time, so I decided to work on a comic (still in progress) about rainbow dash and pinkie pie [link]

I went through that stuff too with not wanting to like a show about colorful talking ponies. I'm glad you found the awesomeness in it, just like I did.
It's more than a show, so much more.


Aaand of course, being an artist in development, I can't help but to love this peice, Rainbow Dash, my favorite pony, painted in such an athmospherical way; it's beautiful :)

I've been a brony for a few years now and I decided to take a look back through my favorites. All the way back on page 16 of 25, this is the first piece of My Little Pony fanart I ever favorited, right when I was getting into the series for the first time.

Just thought I'd let you know that. :heart:
