freezing depths by otakuap freezing depths by otakuap
all right, i made this picture with a different style than usual, because it gives the right kind of atmosphere to it.

I really admire the right tone's of artwork as well as the right amount of emotion an artists put's into their artwork. You did exceptionally well for both.

The perfect amount of detail was put into this. It really shows how much work and effort was implemented here. The detail on Scootaloo and her helplessness as she drowns in cold dark icy waters, the sheer emotion on Rainbow Dash's face as she speeds down towards Scootaloo's body. It really defines her character here and it shows greatly. It's the real eye catcher here and it impacts the audience greatly.

Everything else like anatomy is also fine and well executed too. The way you drew these two looks like an accurate portrayal of how they look on the show but there is evidence of your own style and in short; I love it!
What do you think?

If you should go skating
On the thin ice of modern life
Dragging behind you the silent reproach
Of a million tear-stained eyes
Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice
Appears under your feet.
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind
With your fear flowing out behind you
As you claw the thin ice.

I Love this!

Just thought I'd give an update. Story is getting somewhat near completion. It still has alot of work to be put in.
I took around a month break or so because of school, work.. etc.

But, I'm getting it done. I just cannot give a matter of when. However, with all the work I've been putting into it and having it proof read and getting ideas. I promise you will enjoy the story alot and may have some feels hit too. Perfection can't be rushed!

it's like he's never seen one before.

Anyway, I really just can't stop looking at this admiring work of art!
I mean, it's like a cover you'd expect for a fan fiction... Maybe I should do one for it.
But not like, a very long one. More of a short story.

Perfect Cover for a Fan Fiction.

This is really cool. Dash would put everyone else's life before her own. She'd totally do this. If someone she loves is in danger, she'd put her own life on the line to save them.

I love this. :)

I guess it seems everypony's 1-upping me in the digital department.  As well as every single department out there!!!!  I'm sorry for talking like that.  I'm just jealous today.  I want to be seen and commended, not ignored.  Because that's how my art is apparently.  I put my heart and soul into my art, and nobody even takes a second glance at it.  It's annoying.

And for this piece, it's really good.  It reminds me of the episode of Riders of Berk when Toothless saves Hiccup from drowning after being hit by lightning.

Good thing that Rainbow Dash keeps an eye on Scootaloo.

If it wasn't for RD, she would have been a goner.

Wonderful work, even if it is a dark theme. But I'm sure she'll be fine.
