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.

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.

If it gets you to wince in sympathy, then it's working  as intended :D

Series Pilot, Magic Duel, probably a few other times. She tends to use Twilight as a landing pad XD
