Rainbow Dash's pretty mane by Roliga Rainbow Dash's pretty mane by Roliga
So, Rainbow Dash's turn to get her mane messed up :D

Now I'll just have to figure out how to do some body shading. Tried it on her hooves in this one, but I just couldn't get it right... Oh well, that's a problem for another day :)

I could stare at this for a very long time.
Good job, really like the shading. And the mane. I really like her mane!

This is such a beautiful image. I don't know why, but the shading seems to be just right, and it really adds to the overall look, nice job!

Huh, seems like it. I honestly don't really care too much about these kinds of things, so long as no one is making money off of it with out letting me know. Not that I mind people making money with things I've made, it's just that I'd like to know about it ^^

So yeah, I don't think I'm going to bother. Thanks for letting me know though (:

Oh my! This is awesome!

If you don't mind, I would love to make this my steam profile picture. However, it's over 200K, and Steam won't let files over that amount of data be set as an avatar.

Would you be able to make a lower-rez version of this for me?

I really appreciate it! Thanks! It seems that you cut off a portion of the picture though, would you be able to make a lower-rez version of the entire picture?

I'm sorry for being a thorn and stuff ^^; thank you so much for the help!

Lol, that's all fine The reason I cut it off was cause if the picture would have had its original with-height ratio, steam would have cut it of (in a weird way) anyway to make it square.

Anyway, here's a version that'll be fine on steam and will make the whole of her visible: [link]

I think body shading would help here; it kind of looks like she's wearing a wig of some sort because the "sketchy" feel of the mane differs a bit from the "solid" feel of the body (it's a vector, correct?).

And yes, I did read the description part about body shading, just so you know. It's a nice piece overall, though. c:

(Or maybe you could try "sketching" her body like you did with the mane.)

Hey, some input is always appreciated! This is indeed all vector, and yes, it looks really weird with just the shading on the mane. I'd love to get some style for the body down, but I just haven't got any time to do any art stuff lately :/

Anyway, by "sketching" her body, do you mean sort of like *mysticalpha does? He does have a really awesome art style, but I don't want to go all copy-pasta on him. I did actually think about trying to go for one or two shadow colors for the body, and maybe some hilights, but as I said I haven't got any time to experiment with these things, and that's kind of needed to find a style that looks good and feels good to work with.

But yeah, thanks again for the input and your time :)

Chimchar458 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's fine.

I meant sketching her body by making it/drawing it (instead of using a vector) in your own style, like you did with the mane. It might fit a bit better that way, but do it at your leisure of course.

And thank you, for the reply. :iconlikeasirplz: (or alternately just 'c:'.)

Oh, I see. Well I actually made this whole thing in vectors, even the shading on the mane so :D But yeah, mixing it up with some raster graphics, at least to get a sketch down, might be a good idea :)

Indeed my good sir :)

Oh, I didn't know you did the mane in vector, I thought you sketched it (with a tablet or something); silly me.

It still looks good, though. c:

:iconroliga:
Roliga Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Heh, I wish I could use the tablet, but I'm so damn shaky-handed/can't draw for shit, so that's a no-go. Oh well, at least I guess I could use it for shading :)

Thanks :D

Any kind of additional shading/detailing makes a vector about 20% better looking. :D
