A Sunset Flight Through Ghastly Gorge by Virus-91 A Sunset Flight Through Ghastly Gorge by Virus-91
Whew! I simply did not have the time I needed to complete this in one day, but it is now finished!

First off, let me just say that Rainbow Dash has always been my least favorite of the main six ponys in MLP:FiM... But I'm not going to lie, I gained a LOT of respect for her from the last episode when she got Tank as a pet. Tank is just freakin' awesome and I thought he was the coolest turtle and I couldn't help but root for him since he was trying to impress Rainbow Dash with sunglasses at Fluttershy's. And I was just glad to see Rainbow Dash not going for the typical "This is what's coolest" deal, and I felt the overall episode to be very touching.

So I immediately decided that I was going to draw an image of Rainbow Dash and Tank going for another go in Ghastly Gorge during the sunset as Quarray Eels try taking some snaps at them! While rock and canyons still give me a good deal of trouble in terms of rendering, I'm glad with the way this one turned out!

Rainbow Dash is my least favorite character of the 'Mane Six', mostly because she is so abrasive in personality. However, she can still hold a very good episode, and this one was particular good, if not touching and sweet, as her relationship with Tank reminded me a lot of my own past pets, whom are no longer with me. Also, you also have to wonder what was going on in tanks head throughout the whole episode, like did he instantly fall in love with Dash the moment he laid eyes on her, like "that's the life long friend for me...hold up, I'm coming my dear!"

Also, I'm always a fan of giant monsters, and the Quarray Eels was a nice touch to an already excellent episode, and reminded me a lot of the 'hall-way serpents' from "The People That Time Forgot". And speaking of giant monsters, any chance we'll see artwork dedicated to "The Secret To My Excess"?

Yeah, those are my feelings towards Rainbow Dash as well. And thanks for the comment! As for fan art regarding Secret to my Excess... I've actually considered it. And since I've been in a total Dragon mood lately, I may very well have to do one. I'll most definitely consider it! I feel as if it's been too long since I've done some pony art!

I totally understand if you're busy with other artistic endeavors, but thanks for considering it, because your Pony pieces really are pretty fantastic!

And in all honesty, that was a particular favorite episode of mine ("Excess"), because of the giant monster overtones, and because Rarity and Spike are my favorites from the series, along with the oddball romance / friendship between the two.

Also, just as a side note, I hope to add Spike's giant form to this ongoing project of mine: [link]

Yeah, I agree, it was a great little homage to giant monster films and it's one of my favorites. It was definitely cool to see Spike grow into the normal greed filled dragons that we're all used to.

Belated reply time!

I totally agree, and from what I've heard, there's going to be a follow-up episode where Spike tries to hang around his own kind, with unsuccessful results.

Also, thanks for allowing this and your other MLP kaiju pieces into Kaijuden, the group I co-founded.
