Rainbow in the Sky by Peruserofpieces Rainbow in the Sky by Peruserofpieces
Edit 3: 100 favs...I never thought I'd hit a milestone like that. Thank you so much...

Edit 2: Wow...three days and this has already become my most fav'd piece. Thanks so much to everybody!

Edit: Thanks so much for all the favs, everypony! I'm thrilled you all like it so much! :D

Woo-hoo! My second digital pony! I really like this one a lot. It took a long time to get the pose looking right, and I'm sure it could still be better, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. And Cloudsdale is sooo much fun to draw! :D

From the get-go, I tried a different approach to coloring and shading, and not only did it produce a better result (I think), but it also took less time, so that's a win-win all around! I still haven't found my definitive style yet, but I think I'm getting closer. I really like this line-less approach, but I'm going to have to get better at shadows and shading if I'm going to make it pop like it should.

I'm rambling now. Enjoy!

I do kind of wonder what's up with Dash's grin. (and it also reminds me of Rainbow Factory from what I know of it without having read it) I love that you painted Cloudsdale (I LOVE the cloudsdale design!) though it would have been great to see some more detail on it! Using her tail as a means of framing the picture is interesting but it also makes her tail look kind of longer than it is, unless you intended to give her a longer tail. Overall, I like this!

I just intended for it to be a cocky grin, but maybe it did come out a little evil-looking? And yes, I did purposefully lengthen her tail for style's sake, but I do think I could have tapered it off more at the end for some visual variety. Thanks for the comment! :D

I would usually love to do a critiques, but the theme of your picture is making me say no. (sorry I had recently read 'Rainbow Factory' and it bothers me to see a rainbow) I will try to do a critique if you want though it will most likely be comparing it to Rainbow Factory.

Hmm, normally I welcome critiques, but only if they're objective. If you really are unable to write one without making comparisons between this and...a really scary story, by the sounds of it, then I'd just as soon not have one at all. No offense though, right?

Yeah I mean you set it up perfectly. Rainbow's smile looks evil looking and anything in Cloudsdale reminds me of that story. You did a great job overall.
