This drawing serves two purposes. The second one was to thank you all for 100 watchers...but my Party Artillery [link]
pushed me to 133 watchers. So this is to thank you all for 133 watchers. It's amazing. Seriously, thank you, thank you, thank you for watching.
The FIRST purpose was to honor a friend of mine. A little over two months ago, a day after I had discovered the pony community, the one friend I could say I made there gave me a boost. He inspired me to start drawing again after a long, long hiatus, and if he hadn't done that, I'm not sure all these drawings I've done would exist here today, nor would I have all you enjoying them.
This drawing, although not canon to the episode, was intended to capture what he had instilled in me. It's Rainbow Dash performing her first Sonic Rainboom as an adult, looking on in awe, while receiving a celebratory hug from Fluttershy. It's to honor the idea that, if you don't quit, you really can achieve things you thought you couldn't.
Thanks, to everyone.
