Loss of Colour by 8-Xenon-8 Loss of Colour by 8-Xenon-8
Literally


hmm, this was that other suggestion I got on my livestream on Saturday, from :icongerpie:
I thought it was a cool idea so I did a full picture uvu

The BG still sucks pretty bad, but I really don't feel like leaving this to sit anymore, or I'd never finish it xD

It's as if she is fading into the air, I don't know whether I should shed some tear.

As always I love it! Does anyone know if there's a fanfic relating to this in some way? I'd like to read it if there is. ^^

Not that I know of, it was just a random idea thrown at me during my last stream... it'd be cool if someone wrote a Fanfic related to it though o:

I love the angles youve used, tis very dynamic :meow: though it took me a while to figure out the relation between the title and the image ^^;
and then i saw her colours sliding away and I was like... oooOOOOooooh .0.

could've also been that I was tired and it was taking my brain 3 times as long to catch up @.@

Oh I just noticed. Was she using a sonic rain boom in an attempt to reverse the effects of the color drain?

Not sure, the idea I was given is that she was going so fast that the colour was just coming off her body, and ~Gerpie wanted her to have an expression of holding back tears (which obviously isn't working, as she's crying in the pic xD)

Quite interesting at how the colour is seeping away from her tail and wings, has a good contrast to the grey background. Plus the tail spiral behind looks awesome :iconpukingrainbowsplz: Only thing I will ask is... Where are her back legs? :P Great piece :iconrainbowdashlaplz:

Sometimes we just lose it. The colors fade. But you know, gray ain't so bad :)

I need to start reading the titles...
At first I thought she was running away from something that was making her sad/she was dieing (red from eyes is rarely a good sign after-all). I then noticed the Rainboom back 'thar and *click*....
Sonic Rainbooms take color away from the causer. That is a uniquely freaky thought!

I also need to ensure that I posted all the stuff i wanted to "say"

The transition of the hair/mane to streak is really cool!
I too love the wings.

A question.... HOW FAST ARE YOU ABLE TO PUMP THESE BABIES OUT??!?!?!?!? Do you do one a day? How long does one like this take? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? WHY CAN'T I DO THIS?
Don't answer the last one, that is just saying how awesome you are.

I dunno, I submit 5 full pics a day sometimes... I just have so much time to work on stuff :XD:
It usually takes me 2-4 hours to finish a pic, depends on how big it is or how much effort I put into it o3o

Very nice. I dunno, I think the background works for it, the focus is on Dashie after all, and a lota stuff behind her would distract the viewer from the fastest pony in Equestria....

Well, second fastest... after all we all know Pinkie's faster. :)

Hmmm... I wonder what a white Dashie should be called? Rainsnow Dash? Albino Dash? :XD:
Reply
:icon8-xenon-8:
8-Xenon-8 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
xD an Albino Rainbow Dash would probably look pretty cool..
only problem is she's loosing the colour in her eyes too, so she wouldn't really be properly "albino" :b

Rainsnow.. oh gosh, that reminds me of sleet
it's like, slushy wet snow falling from the sky... not fun :XD:
Reply
:iconpeanut-butternjelly:
Peanut-ButterNJelly Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Yeah... true for both of those. Maybe you should make an albino dash during one of your streams :XD:
And I hate sleet. I didn't think of that when I put Rainsnow :P Snow is okay, and so is rain, but not sleet.... it's like the speed of rain combined with the freezing cold of snow :iconshiverplz:

Such a beautifully emotional drawing, and a very interesting concept indeed

The background does little to hinder the impact of this picture, in my personal opinion. You've done marvelously regardless ^^
