I imagine Rainbow Dash's weather duties leave her rain soaked quite often. And the silly pegasus always gets a kick out of seeing her friends reactions to her appearance when she heads over to a get-together without even stopping to properly groom at all first.
If there's one thing that kind of irks me in a lot of pony fanart, is that artists often forget that the ponies are ANIMALS! And in being horses, they have FUR! And not just mane fur, but like fuzzy coats and stuff! The ponies are fuzzy and furry! So I'm always thrown off when I see pieces that paint the ponies like plastic toys, completely void of any texture except the hair on their heads :/ So I feel like I have to remind people that through my pony pieces, specifically this one! LOOK AT HOW FLUFFY RAINBOW IS! SHE'S GOT FUR DAMMIT!
Heheh that's all!

when you sketch, do you start with a circle? I want to draw a pony for my little sis for her b-day!
*In fairness some 'mares' have 'short' coats, so even when their coats are wet theres hardly any displacement of fur.
In fairness some hairs have sort coats, so even when wet theres hardly any displacement of fur. Still like wet dash though :]
SO FUZZY AND FURRY.
lol so true about the fur(hair) think :b maybe it's because in the show, they look pretty smooth...
only rainbows after rain
I always assume that people imagine them to have the sort of fur horses have in that it's short and course. So it wouldn't hang like that when it gets wet. But being fictional creatures (sadly) and already possessing physical traits beyond any Earth-based equine, they can have any type of fur one can desire.
Yes, I very much love your fuzzy ponies, probably the most of all. They extra cute, fo sho
This is awesome! Great job!
Very cute! If looking for feedback: Eyebrows on top of hair and no pupils. No big deal in either though
Thanks. Though, all those choices were intentional. I know it's not physically possible for eyebrows to rise above the hair, but visually speaking, I like being able to see the eyebrows anyway, really ground the expression. In the minimalist approach of drawing eyes, I like having the irises being just these big slabs of color, cuz it's more expressive that way and it's kinda how I see pony eyes anyway
Why does everybody have names different to what they're profile picture is? For example, yours is Graystripe, (Warriors [yes, I know about those books]) but your pic is of snails.
I hope you realize just how much of a bigot you sounded like. You're username doesn't mach your icon either -_-
My icon is not of Snails, it's of my pony OC. I made this account when I was a huge Warriors fan, but over time, I've gained new interests and have thus created fanart for other fandoms. Problem is, I can't change my profile name. :/
Makes me smile just looking at it. Also makes me think that RD just did something bad that she's extremely proud of.
oh my gosh...your so good at pony's holy cow! or well...holy pony! xD
aw! looks like she had fun!
Certain breeds of horse/pony can add on the fur, but short haired breeds aren't going to cause tufts in any places other than their manes/tails. Fur can be very fine/very short.
Dang right they're fluffy!
Aww, she looks cute
Heh, I imagine that she would, not that she seems to care much for her appearance, as long as she looks cool at least
Though I can't speak for all, I know that some pony artists imagine that while the ponies are covered in fur that compared to their manes and tails it is very close-fitting (so to speak), and would not show much even when wet, though can only take that so far.
Brilliant as always!
Oh wow, that's adorable!
