To the End by Firgof To the End by Firgof
"When danger makes me want to hide, you'll Rainbow Dash to my side."

Loyalty.



Author's Note
--------
This one was a little interesting. I wanted a PoV piece with a bright sky as I often shy away from lighter tones (which is frankly a problem when considering MLP's natural color set :P) and I think this turned out decently.

There are still little flaws here and there but I don't think they detract too much from the piece. My biggest problem, in my opinion, is that the flak bursts don't look *too* correct but that's the best I could do them. Sorry. :(

Anyway, hope you guys like the piece! :D

EDIT: Also I'm going to put the skyscape into the scraps folder for you guys and link to it here. Just in case you want a MLP-esque skyscape or something. It's actually pretty nice in my opinion; doesn't deserve its own deviation though.

The skyscape: [link]

Time taken: 1hr45min approx.

!! Edit !!

Oh Gods, EqD just linked this. I'm the most not ready for this. But I'm excited and happy that you all get to see this piece! Here I was thinking I'd get a couple of views and that would be it...

To everyone from EqD: Hello!! :wave:

Hope you don't mind. 

Had to modify/recreate some parts of it to get it to animate/blend properly, even though I'm not really much of an artist. Sorry :x

That's quite a gift you've given me.  It's beautiful.  Thank you, SonataSwanSong.

I've been in a bit of an artistic rut lately - seeing one of my pieces come to life is rather inspirational.

Thanks for helping me get my groove back.

Saw this pic and tracked it down because I couldn't figure out what the explosions were; to be honest I thought they were spiders.
If you want them to be more realistic looking, I'd add some orange highlights or flashes to some of them or something.
Still, it looks great.

My only technical comment is that I think the reflection on her eye maybe is a little too strong. But that's just an opinion.

Awesome work!

OooooooOOOOOOOOOOH!!!

I feel many emotion rising within my chest that can't even begin to describe the amount of amazing and incredible, and just plain "wow" factor that I feel when I see this.

You, good sir, deserve nothing less than the finest of brohoofs and most epic of high fives.

This would look great for a cover of one of my fanfic's chapters. If those things reflecting in Rainbow's googles would be griffins.
Still, great job.
