"won't look like a tank" by Mn27 "won't look like a tank" by Mn27
That dress made your flank look ginormous.. seriously..

Do i have any GGG ponies in my gallery (yet.) ?

Have a GGG Rainbow Dash.
I'm having an affair with SAI, photoshop is actually good with shading.
That grape necklace was a pain.

now, I go! sleep!

She doesn't look like a tank :) (reference to ep. 14)

Excellent portrait of everyone's favorite Skittles-flavored pony. I am going to operate on the assumption that you're not trying to slavishly follow the show's model, as you've gone into greater detail by far than the show itself.

With a rainbow-colored subject, choosing a background is particularly difficult. What will compliment and what will contrast, and what will just disappear into the character and muddy the waters? Your color choice, your use of the fade, the very light "glow", and your choice of using straight lines to offset a character that is all curves is spot-on. You nailed it.

I can see the work you've put into shaking and highlights. Very nicely done. I think a little more contrast between the front wing and the back wing would help; as it is the contrast is a little low. Ditto for the back of the left foreleg over the right foreleg; a deeper shadow on the far leg would give Rainbow more of a three-dimensional look.

The highlight-spot on the red hair-tie bead doesn't match the direction of the spots on the spheres of the necklace or eye (as far as direction goes).

A more prominent nostril might help a little.

The wing attachment location is a little awkward for me, a little too far forward. It makes the visual convergence of the back of the neck and the wings somewhat "busy"; she has no definition of where her back is. Even if you were to agree, I wouldn't change this picture, though. :)

This one's a keeper. Thank you for sharing this.

Excellent job, I would like to point out that the edges seem a bit rough in some areas on the her wings.
The bead/whatever is holding her mane kind-of sticks out to me, the reflection on it seems a bit off.
The wings seem a tiny bit too far up on her body.

I *could* use a bit more detail in the wings, might I suggest adding some feathery detail?

I think my favorite part about your work on this piece is the absolutely splendid shading job you did!

VERY good work, you should be known more! I hope to see more from you!

I love your work so much, I'm gonna recite a brony poem just for you. "My fellow members of the herd, I hope you all hear my word. You must not argue, fight or hate. But always love & tolerate. Though some may seek to spread abuse, for us such insults are no use. Through all my pain, & loss, & strife, my brony friends are my friends for life."

:floating: she looks so majestic XD. when I first saw her in the dress ,in the Gala episode, I thought it was an extension of hair hanging over back and I was like "holy crap thats a lot of mane" but then I saw that her mane was slung across her neck and tied off at the end

this is great a great piece of art! though of course there's always room for improvement! (in this case details about the wings regarding position, and distinction between primary to secondary feathers). putting those aside, this is beautiful! all the colors, shapes and shading are spot on!

It may have made her arse look a bit bigger thanks to riding high on the flank but it didn't make anything else look bigger. If anything the overall effect was to accentuate Rainbow's lean build.
