Dashie at the beach by Mick-o-Maikeru Dashie at the beach by Mick-o-Maikeru
The tie between Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash has been broken and Rainbow Dash is my new favourite pony! I have a bigger project in my mind but i wanted to upload something before i went crazy or something (i started that "bigger" project a couple of times and always decided to restart after some progress. Makes you go insane after a while).

I got the inspiration during my summer holiday and wanted to draw it as soon as possible. My goal was to finish this piece in one day because i often come across beautiful art pieces that takes the artist about 4 hours to make but thats the amount of time it takes me to even start a project. Guess what; i failed, i finished this in 4 days but perhaps the total amount of time i spent is 4 hours? Damn you internet! You are full of distractions and my silly mind is always looking for 'em.

I could have added more details and i considered adding a few ponies for the background but my point was to finish this as soon as possible so i decided to exclude many details. Hopefully it looks fine.

Any comment/critisizm is much appreciated!

(Edit: The gradients are fixed and the picture is now fully vectorized.)

I really dig the beach-themed jewellery. Man, that necklace looks good on her.

Wow, this is really good. This could possibly be a screencap from a beach episode in season 3? Haha...though I must admit the towel looks a bit out of place. Otherwise, well done.

Thank you. I tried to be as loyal to the style of the show as possible. The towel? Do you mean the orange one or the white one?

You're welcome. ...The white one; it just looks weird to me.

When i sketched Rainbow Dash, her pose seemed fine to me, but when i vectorised it, i realised it looked weird. She needed something to sit on so i added another towel that i hadn't originally planned to draw, which would explain why it looks out of place. Thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks! I do believe we have never seen the sea in the show (even when Rarity is on a "fancy yacht" they are actually floating on a blimp) so yeah, i wonder what would a beach episode be like too.

I really really like this. The scene fits so well with Dash. The colours mesh so well together, and it isn't a 'busy' picture. Well done mate!

Thank you! While i was on vacation and had the luxury of spending entire days on the beach drinking practically infinite glasses of free applejuice i thought "hmm.. Do you know what is missing on this beach? Rainbow Dash!".
