An older, wiser Dash discovers surprising new talent among the Wonderbolts recruits

Full 2.1k x 2.6k version [link]

This took 30.. 40? hours in SAI? I really lost track completely of the time. I paint without lineart very, very rarely (not since August) and I usually lose patience with painting for my own stuff, but I kept pushing it with this one, and kept taking steps forward and backwards, doing a little bit each night. I drew Scootaloo's face / mouth at least 100 times and I still don't really like how she came out :) But this was a good experience to learn. However I don't think I should pursue this style in commissions anymore until I become faster at it.

Isn't this one of the pictures fimfiction uses as a header? It's always cool when I find one of those banners as a full picture on DA!

What Dash says, "Not bad for a noobie...  Keep at it, kid..."

What Dash think, "Holy shit!  You broke ALL of my old records...!  Blood or not, you're MY kid sister alright..."

It's lovely art, I must say!

...But RD's cutie mark is backwards

Her cutie mark is backwards because it's the right side of her flank, it would be the right way round on the left side of her flank.

No, according to the artist, the cutie mark is indeed backwards.
