Life of Dashie by ThePegasusEffect Life of Dashie by ThePegasusEffect
So I told you all that I was going to try and change up my style, and to be honest, a lot of it is still in the working stage, but I thought I'd upload the first drawing I've done of Rainbow Dash =)

So here is the awesome pegasus! For this, I changed the muzzle, the legs, and the wings. I also mane her mane and tail a bit scruffier as I did actually do it exactly like her show style, but it looked a bit too flat so I decided to make it like this and it looks much better.

I am a big fan of this drawing and I think for a first time trying my own style, it looks pretty decent. Some things I think could do with changing though include:

- The Legs - They're not terrible, but I think they could look a bit more accurate to something of a real horse, especially the front leg closer to the viewer.

- The Muzzle - This looks a bit flat and two dimensional. I think I need to make it so it looks it's coming from the face more.

- The Wings - I think they look a bit TOO detailed here. I counted about 15 feathers on Dashie's wings, but looking back and I think I over did it a bit. But do you think it's fine? Or should I do less?

- The Shading - Some parts of it are great, but it's rather inconsistent, like you see on Dashie's right (your left) wing.

Looks mostly great though! But remember, this style isn't permanent and I'm still experimenting with it. But saying that i hope you all like it! Feel free to comment and fave and tell me what you think :D

Thanks Lauren =) Hopefully it'll get a lot better the more I draw it.

Glad you like it. Took me a while to get used to though :P

Did you see my two latest journals by any chance? I want to get your opinions on them.

Yeah just saw them today ^^ I'm really glad you put young, gifted and blue as your favourite drawing since I think it was a real turning point for you as an artist and the top three on that list really have been spectacular works. 

I was surprised to see how many of your EG drawings were on your disliked list, I'll admit your style has improved since you drew them but for when you did draw them they were actually really good early attempts.

I suppose though I'm not really disappointed to see any of your picks on either list since it shows that you've changed as an artist that you have decided what parts of you style you like and what you dislike and how you can constructively comment on each picture. It's certainly a great change from five years ago when you didn't seem to have any favourites in your art... you really have come a long way in what has been a short space of time considering you have other things to do in life than draw :)

The best thing about my top three favourite drawings was that the 2nd and 3rd place drawings were both drawn in August. Which is a great sign to have something you did so recent ranks so highly for you!

They were good for the time, but I just couldn't help to dislike them as I got better. I also think a lot of the headcanons just feel forced.

Glad you're not disappointed in the lists overall though! I mainly did this not just as an anniversary thing, but to highlight my best and worst and to see when I drew them. If you noticed, a lot of the pictures on the worst list were from my early days, but the best were quite recent (in fact, the Young, Gifted and Blue picture is the only one from 2014 IIRC), which as I said is a great sign to show how much I've improved! I gotta thank a lot of people as well, and you're definitely one of them Lauren. If you didn't comment on my stuff, then to be honest, I wouldn't bother, it's kept me going =)

Really awesome. The legs could use a little work, but it's still a very nice picture.

Thanks Mildock =) Yeah that's what I said in the description and hopefully they'll look a bit better in future drawings.

Thanks Blazing =) You're probably not wrong there, although if you like this, you'll definitely like the future pictures when I've figured everything out.

You'll definitely like them! I drew a couple of G1 ponies, but they won't come until after I've done a few G4 ponies as well.

I've done Firefly, Twilight and Medley already. They've come out pretty decent so far =)
