Rainbow Dash gets all the mares by Choedan-Kal Rainbow Dash gets all the mares by Choedan-Kal
Pencil sketch vectorized and (re)composed in Inkscape. I’m not really sure what’s going on here other than RD being totally swagtastic, presumably after winning some jousting competition, or maybe just because its Thursday and she’s awesome.

I had several versions of this idea sketched out, but I ended up vectoring each pony separately, and then played around with different compositions in Inkscape, ultimately coming up with something a bit different from what I originally planned. The only problem with this approach was that Lyra’s pose was a bit awkward to work into alternative compositions.

The background was a gigantic pain in the ass although I am pleased with the results. Apparently having 8 gigs of ram plus another gig on my video card means nothing to Inkscape :P

For those interested, I have placed the individual vectors in my scrap page

Also, I plan to post a…bonus image in my scrapbook in a day or two using an alternate (and humorous) composition.

Edit: Bonus picture finished: [link] (warning - its clean, but has chains)

I was thinking about the strangeness of this scene until I saw Lyra's legs. THEM LEGS.

Lyra looks way off with the anatomy. Wish you made her shorter, but over all like this one very much

Hehehe, I can see Derpy forgetting to compensate for the large fan and winding up blowing herself out of the room. And of course RD is looking large and in charge. Great work!
