Dash Squadron by Dori-to Dash Squadron by Dori-to
This one is a very special thank you piece for :icon10art1:

He's been helping me with almost everything and has been an awesome friend! We recently started a collaboration as Tacohat Comics and you can find the background story here: [link] On top of that, he is making me a Fluttershy plushie so I just had to do something back...

It had to be something with a badass Rainbow Dash and aviation. This gave me the opportunity to try something new and I added this Mig 29.

When I was a kid I used to read a lot of French and Belgian comicbooks and I always tried to reproduce the planes and cars in the same style, but I never quite managed. I feel like I've finally reached the level of skill I wanted back then and drawing this has made me very proud.

For anyone who knows where this is from, you get a special yay from me, because this one's really tough to find.

DON'T bug me about the fact that Rainbow Dash could fly faster with her own wings than she could with a fighterjet, just enjoy the great combination of ponies and planes!

Alright now that I woke up from my awesomeness induced coma, a critique is the least I can do.

The vision for this is outstanding! The jet and Rainbow Dash blows me away. The background is a beautiful hazy sky and the ground is a golden tarmac. Just like the ones in Soviet Russia ;-;

This is very original. I have seen a few Rainbow Dash fighter pilots, and I have even drawn one, but this is totally different. She is outside in the air inspecting it with a custom flight suit, jet, and helmet. You can even see all the mechanical parts and it even is on chocks! Now you have a pitot tube on both sides but i'll let that drop :)

As always your technique is spot-on. Another work that is surely destined on EqD. You have your patented scratched highlights into her hair and unusual shadow work. No real blatant mistakes.

I think my reaction speaks for itself. I really appreciate this and when I first saw this I wanted to cry it was so beautiful. Heck next time I'll print this picture out and take it to the Air Force base to show all my cadets and officers how cool my friend is ^.^ I may be biased but the impact is a perfect 5 stars.
What do you think?

Holy hell... this is simply incredible. The detail and custom touches really make this stand out.

I am especially impressed with what you did with her mane and tail, and the coloring within. With careful use of shading, and without the lines separating the different colors, it adds a touch not often seen. You have given this a look similar to the show, but with a more realistic feel to it. Where most who attempt this fail, you have succeeded most excellently.

On the plane, I did notice that you have RD's cutie mark painted on the nose. That is a subtle touch that blends in nicely, and when you take the time to look for such details, finding them makes it that much better. Also, nice choice of planes. The only other two planes I would choose for her would be the F-14 and A/F-18.

20/20 stars! XD

"Talk to me goose." I swear to god every time I played with these two guys, all they would do is fly the jets and spurt top gun quotes.
