Rainbow Dash in her dress for the Grand Galloping Gala!
So this is actually my first painterly experience with any digital program. I've done digital art before, but it's always graphic and flat colors or just inks or what not. Suffice to say, digital painting is, like, really hard. I think it's pretty easy to tell that this was a learning experienced 'cos there isn't really any unity to the piece, and Dashy doesn't really sit on the, uh, "background" that well. Also, I really didn't have a clue how I was gonna render a 2d pony three dimensionally, but I tried anyhoo. Of all the dresses at the Gala I loved Rainbow's the most, so it was an easy subject to choose when I decided I wanted to try to paint something. Despite this being a learning experience, I actually like how most of it came out, and I'm really looking forward to doing some more paintings. Also, I feel like I need to apologize for how that crest came out, but by that point I was just done with this, hahah.
