Swan Dive by DocWario Swan Dive by DocWario
Gotta give a nod to Manatee McKenzie, The Inexplicable Brony, and Swaetshirt - IEB told me to do a swan dive and, I took inspiration from pieces by all these radical ponies to try and cobble something together.

Moody Blues - on the Threshold of a Dream. Listen to the whole thing.

This is awesome! I love how Rainbow Dash is kinda glowing in the water and the fact that she is saving Fluttershy...*sigh* That's soooo cute. And I love how when I scroll down, the rainbow trail gets brighter.

her tail is probably brighter light travels faster in water than on earth so she will be a little faster

Alright, serious time.
I gotta say, the water affect was beautiful. The clouds and the transition from the navy blue to the light blue is just fantastic. But to me, Rainbow's tail looks kind of,... stringy.
Anyway, may I recommend some sleeping pills? They make you plum tuckered out in ten seconds flat.

Wow, dude. That picture's so powerful, fluttershy looks perfect. The only thing I can see that needs improving is Dash's hair. Other than that, splendid piece of work!

P.S: I might take up on your offer to write a fanfic, if somebody else hasn't already taken it (even though I'm cool if they have).

The splashes where Rainbow Dash enters the water look similar to the rings from the Sonic Rainboom, that is a nice include without having the normal rainbow rings.

Nice design ;-) I like how the rainbow trails your eye down to the conflict area of the piece :D Looks pretty cool how there's sort of different styles happen here, like a vector rainbow, painterly splash, flat coloured RD. It's interesting and well done ^_^ Keep at it! *thumbs up*

I was riding a pony while I can hardly see anything due to heavy rain until a lightning stroke in front of my pony, freaking her out and flailing me off her saddle and hitting my head on a rock, knocking myself unconscious...

Yadda yadda yadda, I was buried alive in a grave deep underground. Luckily, I found a Submachine below the coffin and managed to go to another dimension. Now I'm lost, help.
