RD Hard Landing by LateCustomer RD Hard Landing by LateCustomer
Even the best flyer in Equestria is bound to have an accident now and then. <wince> I'm sure she'll be fine.


I wanted to see if I could capture the energy, motion, and impact of a rough landing without relying on speed lines or the like as I would in my normal cartooning efforts. Instead I focused on direction of debris and some perspective tricks to make RD look like she's sliding to a halt just short of hitting the camera. Aaaand... I now feel sorry for doing this to poor Rainbow Dash.

You seem to have achieved your goal to me!

Going through the fanwork (art, animation, cartoons) I've seen RD crash more than once.
But I've never felt it like this. I think it's adds good depth to her character!

In the various Air Forces around the world, a "colonel's landing" is a slang expression to describe a clumsy landing made by a person who, despite being a qualified, certified, and trained pilot, has occupied a command/desk position for a long time, thus dulling his/her experience and reflexes as a pilot and decreasing his/her quality as a pilot (but not necessarily as a commander, though).

A colonel's landing, even if clumsy and, maybe, resulting in damages to the aircraft or nearby structures, doesn't necessarily turns into a crash. But that's a possibility, though.


P.S.:
I assumed you knew what a colonel's landing is, but I posted it anyway. Not everyone/everypony is supposed to know about it.
And, I confess, I've been wanting to go on a Twilight Sparkle-like short lecture for a long time.
I hope you'll forgive me.:icontwilightawkwardplz:

That must've hurt! I really like the way you managed to give an image of motion despite it being all still. The style looks cartoony, and yet so sublime and... well, real, I guess.
