The next May Festival Pony is Rainbow :33 Her design was a challenge, I really did not want to use a lots of flower 'cause her personality is not quite like Fluttershy's or Cadence's XD In her case the less is more!! I tried to highlight her youthful and "badass" personality. Hope you like it Here flowers are these , Daisy.
Hee-Hee! I've gotta say! You nailed the "less is more" aspect of this picture. This is a refereshing & well-matched version of Rainbow Dash.
I can see her youthful & mischievous personality all over her face; the silver & pearl string wreath & necklace highlight her simple tastes. The bracelet also provides a nice little accent & the daisies are a very sporty, understated, yet pretty flower that matches RD's personality. Nice work with her mane & tail, they still look like something natural that she would do herself.
Well done, Miss Tiffany. You've shown a new & refreshing side to Rainbow Dash that I appreciate. Great job.
I tried XD In Rainbow's case you never can use something frilly and girly! She would kill you XD The meaning of the Daisy is "day's eye." I think it's perfect for Dash 'cause she is usually in the high skies, near the Sun. Thank you so much for your compliment
This is very good! I actually love this because of how elegant, yet BA, it is. ^__^
It is true that "girly" things don't necessarily combine with Rainbow Dash (unless you were talking about a cutesy-wootsie picture), having the "less is more" rule applies. I like how the flowers and the dress she wears just highlights that she's a mare, but the rest of her (pose, expression, and mane style) show a more aggressive and "aerodynamic" nature.
One thing I kinda don't like about the picture is the eyes. The shading you did fine, but the white shine in the middle of the iris sticks out a bit. It's positioning makes it seem more like a pupil than light reflection.
Overall, I really do like this picture a lot. Your shading and coloring do make it a nice piece. Keep up the good work!
