Always By Your Side by Firgof Always By Your Side by Firgof
From the deepest pits into the darkest battles: she's always putting her life on the line to save others in danger.

Time taken: About 18 hours.
Tools used: SAI, Photoshop, Tablet

Author's Notes
This one was created in response to one of the bi-weekly challenges of the r/mlpdrawingschool sub-reddit: to go "beyond yourself". This is one of my best pieces, I believe. I'm hopeful that I'm only a year or so from scraping the tip of the level of talent I'd like to have if I keep improving. We'll see.

In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy this piece. As with my others, it is rough in some places. I'm not sure I'll ever have the fortitude to *really* go over one of my pieces for hours until it's absolutely perfect but it does convey what I wanted it to. My anatomy is still not quite 'spot on'. I may have to do some real-world analogues before long because perspective and volumes are still laying me out.

This is just lovely! I really like how protective Rainbow Dash looks here.

Why thank you. I had to exaggerate her wings a bit and bump her shoulders a little but I think the 'feather shield' effect is worth a little anatomical distortion. :)

Also draw that glaring eye I think 8 times before I was satisfied with it.
