A (Pony)tale of Two Dashies by derpiihooves A (Pony)tale of Two Dashies by derpiihooves
[EDIT: neck fix]

Mostly just practice/messing around, but it still may prove to be useful for SA.

I hope that the project goes well!

Also, RD reminds me of Asuka Langley Shoryu from Neon Genesis.

The starswirl academy project is an interesting venture, what inspired it, other than the obvious amazingness of the show?

Long story short, this. [link]

What inspired that drawing, however, I wouldn't be able to say. But as things are now, I think the desire to give back to the community is one of the primary sources of motivation and inspiration for us. It was mostly on an impulse and with a bit of luck that this thing even kicked off in the first place.

Long neck is looong. lol

But seriously, I like this length of hair longer, that is for sure. And her being a redhead when she is not dyed. I think I am going to run with that idea.

Is that a top-knot on her head? The samurai thingy. This look could work pretty well when she is in class.

I really like the redhead on her x3 Excellent drawing. However, I was thinking...If you guys are going to give Pinkie pie a realistic hair color, it looks a little weird when the four others have crazy colors. AJ is fine with her hair color, but Twi, Dash, Flutters, and Rarity all look strange. Why not give them realistic colors? I think maybe for Rainbow Dash, she could've dyed the tips of her hair in a rainbow, and the rest of it be natural. What do you think?

I think we'll be sticking to bright pink hair for Pinkie. I imagine we'll be taking some liberties with the hairstyles themselves, but as for actual colour, I doubt we'll stray far from the show's colours. It'll be far from natural looking, but I don't think unrealistic hair colours are uncommon in games like this.

Dash dying the tips of her hair was an idea I had a while back, actually. This here is me experimenting with that idea (albeit poorly). I did draw her as a red head above, but in the end I think we'll be going with rainbow rair. Aside from her personality, I think her hair is kind of like her trademark.

That said, there are still a lot of things to decide regarding designs.

Thanks for the input! :)

In previous drawings, her hairs look a little redder than before. I just thought, perhaps, she would be a bit too similar to Misha if she had a more similar color, so that's why :P

Aww~~ Rainbow's so cute in that drawing >w< I like her hair like that. Her hair is pretty important xP

It just seemed to me, if you were going to do one more realistic (and I guess you're not, now) then it should either be all or none.

Pinkie's recent red-headedness is mostly unintended on my part, hehe. ^^; Though I am trying to stay away from straight up pink, just to make it more interesting to look at. Hence the little bit of red I always add.

The hairstyle looks really great,and the coloring on both of them look great as well,especially the rainbow colored hair,but I think I can even see the red hair version working in the novel,but to avoid all the crap and complaints,you should stick with the rainbow version

I think we'll probably be sticking to the rainbow hair, but there might be a way to insert the red-headedness in there, if only briefly. Who knows.

Could defiantly be used for SA. Maybe a flashback scene or something she does to stand out in the start of the story and she keeps it.
