Failed Concept - Dash's Anxiety by JinYaranda Failed Concept - Dash's Anxiety by JinYaranda
"It's now or never."

Dash at the Wonderbolt's tryout, having anxiety like she did at the Best Young Flier's competition. Was an experiment in dramatic lighting, but kind of meh pose and all that made me ditch it. I need to push my poses more. D:

Posted only 'cause people say I shouldn't delete all my art.

The fact that it's in grey-scale merely heightens the feeling of anxiety.

I like the feel, but something about the angle/pose feels all "meh" to me.

Perhaps the back left leg is a bit off...
But the pose is suitably anxiety-filled. You can see that she's subconsciously raised her front hoof as if to defend herself and likewise with the lowering of the ear. The angle is understandable as she has frozen on the spot torn between the instinct to flee from an unwanted situation and her desires to do well.

Really, you did a great job with this.

So there's unlikely to be a colored version?

I think it looks really cool, personally.

I like the idea in my head, but haven't been able to make it work on the canvas! D:
