No season 2 episode for you Scootaloo but don't worry because one day;

you'll be the one who stands up tall
The one who rises above them all
The one who gets to be...


This piece took a lot longer than it should have, but it's finally finished!

I'm not sure what inspired me to make this... I guess Dash and Scoot both have a special place in my heart, and I love the way Scoot idolizes Dash.
I imagined a scene in which Scootaloo watches in horror as her hero botches a stunt and violently crashes deep in the Everfree Forest. Scootaloo immediately tears into the forest and gets herself lost, but she eventually locates Rainbow Dash in an unconscious heap on the forest floor. Scoot wants to get help, but she refuses to leave her hero in the forest alone in this condition. Instead she does what she can to shield Dash from an incoming storm and stays with her until help arrives...

As usual you're free to come up with your own scenarios for this scene, but just know my original vision included a happy ending. ;)

I have ideas for another pic or two related to the image above, but right now my focus has been shifted to those two comics I referred to in my journal!

Who knows, maybe someday I'll write a fanfiction based on this pic... But don't hold your breath! ;)

(BTW, How do the colors look? Are they too dark?)

Wow, this is so amazing and heart touching. It's like Rainbow Dash is Scootaloo's bigger sister, I'm not sure if Rainbow is or not but oh well. I know I would help my idol/hero in their time of need and never leave their side, come what may, to the bitter end or the peaceful ending.

I love how it is dark and not light it gives more of an impact to the picture.

Rainbow's expression and Scootaloo's pained expression really jerks some tears. I love this piece if anything it would be no understatement to call it a master piece keep up the good work!

I love it! Your technique is very good, and the are no signs of any unsightly lines. In addition, you did a very good job with the coloration, especially on rainbow's face, hooves, and tail because the mud looks very real. Also, you depicted their wet manes and tails so realistically that It actually looked real. In addition, you were also right on target with Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash's expressions, because they look so realistically upset that It's easy to perceive what they are both thinking and feeling at that very moment. You, my friend, have done a very good job.

This is a wonderful piece. It's very moving seeing Scoots looks after Dash like that, returning all the love that Dash has given  Scoots. Also the colours work for this piece since they are in the Everfree, it matches the lighting that would be there. Makes it feel that your there looking at the scene.
