Equestria Girls - Rainbow Dash Anthro by JameytheHedgehog Equestria Girls - Rainbow Dash Anthro by JameytheHedgehog
Here we go again.

This time when I draw ponies, admittedly mostly Rainbow Dash, I wanna do it differently. I don't wanna get deja vu drawing MLP stuff, least of all from last year. And since
she looked increasingly more mature and serious, I wanna go back to making her cuter.

I've got some ideas of how to do a crossover between St2nd and MLP:FiM, and how that can work, so that's partly why I'm using Equestria Girls as a template. Using this image mainly but making it into an anthro style, and with a definite tail. I don't know what's going on behind her back there.

It's a weird and interesting challenge getting the band (of pencils) back together and coloring in rainbows again. I forgot how tricky they were to do.

Things I don't like about this pic are... I was worried about her proportions not being quite right, the head too big and the body too short. But I guess it's okay. And the eyes are massive. Hopefully this is just the beginning, and I'll do better next time. The more I can consistently draw something, the more it'll evolve.

I managed to listen to Hey Ocean towards the end of working on this... even though it's not exactly the same as hearing Dash sing on the show, maybe I can get inspiration from there somehow. I'm seriously thinking about SonDash. But I might just end up drawing them together.

Bravo to author.

The thing that gets me is that is Equestrian girls based around human ponies with skin colour, or anthro versions of themselves? Anyways this is pretty sweet, you summed up Rainbow perfectly as an anthro tomboyish and cool looking.

Yeah, it's like Doug people. Weird colors and such for no reason.

I haven't drawn her in :iconsixthdoctorplz:'s coat yet. That's gonna be interesting to see how it turns out.
