The Day that I'm Glad I Survived by SmellsLikeBeer The Day that I'm Glad I Survived by SmellsLikeBeer
A tribute to My Little Dashie fanfiction novel. I guess there's no-one who hasn't read it yet. Was the first fanfic I ever read and was probably the main thing that got me into drawing these pony things. The story's a bit too sappy and there were some parts that I didn't like too much, but I guess it was really inspiring story. Got me to draw these after all.
In last month it was a year since I joined DA. It feels that it's been much longer than a year since I joined though. With all the things that's happened. Anyway I thought it would fit the theme. You know, to go back to where I started from for awhile. When I joined I would have never guessed that in a year I would have over 1000 watchers. I thought that the first 20 were a lot. Yeah, so I also kinda wanted to thank all the watchers and for all the faves and comments. And of course all the friends that I've gotten here. It's been a bumpy ride and I really appreciate that you've sticked with me. I'm getting really soppy here but yeah, thanks for all the support.

I'm not much of a painter, but I decided to try leaving all the cross-hatching away this time and focus on the watercolors. It's the usual A5 size.

Amazingly well done. Though I gotta say I didn't read the fanfic. I dunno, I just heard that it was really feelsy. That, and I haven't been in the mood to read in a real long time. ^^;

Haven't read it myself but from the short sum of it,its about a human man who finds a filly version of rainbow dash and raises her until one day he has to let her return to her own world.

My little Dashie made lot of fans crying. I read it myself. You can understand or feel the story more if you live alone like the guy in the story. I came to tears.

Back to art, good for you that get that much watchers. And with this featuring on today's drawing stuff on EQD ([link] (#35)), will probably bring you more. This is beautiful work you've done.

Rainbow Dash could really bring color to our world, looking at how bleak everything else looks in the picture... and in this world.

Actually....I've never read it. Ever.

And I have no yearning to. Since the ending seems to make the entire story pointless.

But that's just me.

Very nice. While I love your usual style (cross-hatching and minimum of colors), it's nice to see a new, different style from you once in a while. Also is the title a reference to a certain song by System of a Down?

An amazing piece once again! And once more you honor me with both this beautiful art and humble words. I'm glad that my fic helped boost you along with your art. So, with it being St. Patricks day 'n all, a toast! Here's to another year, cheers!

This is awesome man. I love your use of watercolors. It's just as fantastic as your use of crosshatching. I'm speechless. I thought I was a fan of you for one unique style now this? Shit.

I actually haven't read it yet - so many ponies, so little time.

Very nice painting, though. Watercolor's a beautiful medium in the hands (hooves?) of a skilled artist, and you did a great job with this one. I like the perspective, too - it's always nice to see something a little more uncommon there.

Maybe I should read that fanfic so I know what's actually going on in the picture, though. :)

Congrats on 1000+ watchers as well, BTW, and thanks for all the lovely art!
