If you want to post this on Tumblr I would really rather have you reblog the whole post this is from! It's much better in its original context and I put a lot of work into that update. So please don't repost this on Tumblr on its own. Click the link above and reblog that post instead. Thank you.
So this is a very bishoujo teenage Rainbow Dash based directly on the look of K-On! She has mugi's eyes and everything.
This is easily the nicest piece of fanart I have ever drawn as of writing this. I love Dash's face and the adequately sparkly background and ESPECIALLY the volume I managed to give her hair. It's so great. The basic shading I attempting is pretty okay too. I've stared at this image a lot this week thinking "wow I can't believe I drew this."
I mean it's not perfect. I can see some flaws. But I'm pretty damn happy with it.
Oh, and you can see an earlier version of this image and a version without the bloom here
