Rainy Day by snip-veritas Rainy Day by snip-veritas
I drew this last September to test out the new tablet I got from monoprice.com. What better test than some Rainbow Dash? The drivers are a little temperamental at times, but you simply cannot beat $40 for a 10"x6.25" tablet these days. If you want one on the cheap, I totally recommend them.

Oh, and I realized a few days later that the clouds look like an angry face. :( Kinda like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man. Or something. I should fix that.

Hey, I have that tablet! I always recommend it to people when they ask for suggestions but with one exception, they always end up going with a more expensive one. :P The monoprice tablet also has twice the pressure sensitivity as the cheaper bamboos.

I love your artwork! Although I'm a big Dash fan, I think the Princess Celestia and Applebloom pictures are actually my favorites.

I love the reflection in the water, it works to great effect here.

Adding this to my Favorites so I can add it to my wallpaper folder once my computer gets fixed (again).

I REALLY like her mane!

...No, really-- it's the best part. ^.^ Soo super cute.

Thank you for taking the time to comment! My old tablet had a wobbly pen nub, so I couldn't really do straight, flowing lines like the ones in her mane before. Once I realized I could I ran with it. Glad you like the result.

You know its been years since I've used this account and I had to get on to ask: why do so many people who draw rainbowdash reverse her cutie mark? I see it everywhere, and it kind of pet-peeves me out.

Well, it happens. Sometimes I forget the cutie marks altogether. I tend to fuss over coloring so much that I don't check a reference image for little things like that. Either way, I can easy go back and flip it at a later time, ha. This is why the digital art gods made layers.

Thanks for pointing it out, though--otherwise I wouldn't have even noticed!

It's simple, people tend to forget which direction. And can I start off by saying, I don't see any breathtaking art on your page unlike this one, this one is great. In matter of fact, I see no art on your page at all. But I am not one to hate so, let me put this a different way. Look aside mistakes, other then the cutie mark mistake, the photo is free of mistakes, and honestly I like the look of the clouds. The first drawing I did, and uploaded was of Rainbow Dash, and honestly it sucks. When I first uploaded it, I forgot a wing, a leg, and the tail. As well, the coat is so monotone. I could do better, supposing I took the time, but it was only just a test of the capability of my only art program. Acorn. But I digress. My point its, sometimes people forget the cutie mark, sometimes they put it on wrong, and maybe they just prefer the look.

Wow, thanks for the compliments! I'm glad you like it. When you put time into anything, though, you're going to see the mistakes more than anything else.

No need to get defensive, though, I welcome critique. Sometime I'll probably go back and do her wings over again, probably alter the proportions a bit so her neck doesn't look so long, and do something about that silly cloud face. <_< Flipping a cutie mark is simple enough.

Woah, getting a bit offensive with the "no art on your page" stuff. Honestly I cant count how many times I've heard stories like that on ED or other places. I don't think I need to be an artist to see a common flaw and ask why it happens. I'm not insulting the artist or the art (which is an amazing bit of art). And apparently you didn't read: "its been years since I've used this account"; I literally haven't been logged into deviantart since about 2007 or 8 and am not interested in drawing.

Look who is getting defensive, if you read on, I sort of apologized. Like I said, I was not trying to be defensive. What I was getting at was, from my point of view, it seems like you have never done any art, so I was just telling you, that like Snip said, its easy to make mistakes when you put time into things.

I hope this piece of beautiful artwork gets more comments, especially since it is featured on EquestriaDaily's Drawfriend, congratulations by the way!
I love how you drew Rainbow Dash, with her hair hanging in her face, so cute. :meow: And those eyes...:aww:
And the background is nice, too. :) I love rainy days like those.

That's a pretty lovely one. Who are these ponies in the background? Loved the reflection in the water, btw.

The background ponies are just.. background ponies. <_< I wanted to pick subtle colors that wouldn't drag your eye away from RD but were bold enough not to be missed. I wish the reflections were a bit clearer, really, but impatience got the better of me on that one.

Is she... prancing in the rain and enjoying the weather (which she, perhaps, brought upon the lands herself)? That's lovely.
Also, I like those small waterdrops on her wings and body where raindrops meet them (even if they were put lazily and unintentionally/machinally).

So my voice was heard and you decided to upload some pony-art? I assume more is coming, including ATG-one?

As far as posting pony stuff goes, there is more to come.
Honestly I didn't think my stuff was special enough to warrant posting on the internet, so I intended to use this account just to post some of the paper cuttings I've been doing, particularly some of my commissioned pet portraits (which are still works in progress atm), but heck, if people like it I might as well post some pony on the side. ATG ones that make Drawfriend will be posted. Thanks again for your interest.

You aren't serious, are you? As much as I adore humble artists, I must all your pony art I've seen so far is simply beautiful and gorgeous. If my voice and opinion matters - I really would like to see more pony-art from you.

So please - continue to pony, Rachel :3
