Edit: Twilights horn and a problem with the lineart of her hair fixed

Really loving this fic, I recommend it to all TwiDash fans :)

Vision: If you DON'T get some message out of this piece, you're probably not smart enough to tell that there's ponies in it. <3

Originality: There's no point in typing much for this category. Your style is beautiful, and holds almost no similarities to anyone else's. It's breathtaking.

Technique: I don't really know why Technique and Originality are even different categories. Deviantart needs to change that. They're the same thing. This was drawn so well, and I'm feeling bad about every good thing I've ever done because it was done that well.

Impact: Oh. My God. Yes. I don't have good enough words to describe the emotional impact behind this image. I am tearing up, I really am. The piece conveys only a mild hint of intimacy, and strongly portrays the idea of "Friends 'til the end." Manly. Tears.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
36 out of 45 deviants thought this was fair.

~ the back round is nice and simple, and to the point.

~the water thin, you can see how the water drops down on twi and dash.

~the colour on twilight is all there, as is the shad. Rainbow dash's colour is there as well, And i like how you maked sure all of the fur is wet and did't leave any spot.

~the anatomy is perfect, most people make many mistakes but i don't see any on this one.

~ the face expssion, They set the mood perfectly, you can tell by there face's what is happening in this drawing.

~ This is great, and yes im a fan of twidash and this is far better then most twidash art i have seen in my whole life.
great job bro

I'm a FlutterDash fan, but this picture made me wanna read the fic... I haven't started yet for a simple reason: it has the "Dark" tag on it and I cry easily when I read. Books affect me immensely.
That being said, I have one question. Just how dark is it? It's a really undefined question, i know =\ I kind of want you to tell me as much about it without really telling me anything about it. I've never read a fic with the previously mentioned tag, only with "Tragedy" and I cried my eyes out.
I'm asking this here because, well, reading the comment's before the fic is insane.

Astounding work of course, seeing Dashie sad wakes up very powerful emotions in me. Just the fact that your work got me interested in reading a fic featuring a pairing that's not my preference speaks for itself.

I've seen a lot of art of Rainbow Dash being the protective one, it's nice seeing it the other way around. (I'm assuming that's what's going on. I never read the fic.)

I always love the fact that artist and writers in the fandom can create and capture something that transcends the original premises of the show into something that's emotional, sorrowful, joyous, iconic and imaginative which summons feelings we didn't think existed in ourselves. That you for sharing.

Okay, I may not be a "huge" fan of Twidash, BUT... this picture... this PICTURE... It has so many FEELS in it that I can't just look away from it, it shows how Rainbow feels instead of her just bottling it up like so many times I see a picture like this. I love the fact that she's allowing herself to show her vulnerable side to Twilight and she's not fighting to regain control over her emotions!!! You are an exceptional artist and I applaud you for it!!! Please do keep up the good work that you have done here with any other artistic urges you get.

"A Bluebird's Song" was one of the greatest stories that I have ever read. So darn good. It is such a roller-coaster ride of emotions. I love the art that you made for a couple of the scenes.
ImShySoIhide Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
b'aww first time i saw this pic it made me look up the fanfic and read it, awesome story.

And now when i look at it i just really want to pick up the fic again and read it ;(

Well done
Natsumushi Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I got to twidash by looking up Flutterdash. Amazing artwork! And, just like many of the others here, I began reading the fanfic. I feel a bit silly though reading a fanfic about ponies, I'm a fan of the show and all. But I usually don't read any fanfics at all really, the last one I read was a DooM fanfic. But from what little I read of the story, it is well written, and your art captures the moment perfectly. Wonderful job!

Can someone give me a premise of this fic?
The description was way to vague to see if it interests me.
What is going on? What is this suppose to be about?

I just finished this wonderful masterpiece that is the fanfic. I loved this fic more than any other story (fanfics and otherwise) that I have ever read, and I read a lot. I would put Twilight to shame with how much I read. Thank you for bringing me into this gorgeous world that the writer masterfully constructed, and thank you for this lovely artwork that so perfectly encapsulates the emotional roller coaster that is this wonderful, beautiful story.
michaelajunker Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Student General Artist
This artwork caused me to read the fanfic. I just now got to the 30th chapter, and this fic is unbelievably amazing. I've read a few outstanding fics, but this one just takes the cake. Thank you for helping me to have this enjoyment. Thank you for the beautiful artwork.

DolphinBuster Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Chapter 30? Damn, that must mean it's a long story... Yet, if you made a fan art for it, it must be good! Checking the fic, oh yeah the picture.
chrisjr5 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012
really loving this fic it gives me some ideas for my own that im writing im actually happy that its a long fic most fics are maybe 40-70k words at the most so its good to see a fic someone ut a lot of work into
ChloeDahlia Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
at first, i refused to read any shipping fics, but now, with this awesome art and all that, i'm a TwiDash fan, that's the power of your art

Your work is unbelievable! I am truly dumbstruck. There is so much emotional expression it boggles the mind. You have a true gift my friend.
XenofireTrue Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
Having finished reading this fanfic(till the author uploads more chapters anyway) having these pictures up based one when i reached the chapter to help give me a better idea of the situation, had a picture in my head but this helped to extend it into a much more beautiful scene regardless of the feelings of what was happening. Your work here and the others.. just looking at it aches my heart (in a good way, nothing anywhere near bad at all) the love between them, the challenges that happened and were going to happen, its just so incredible and has definetly become my #1 favorite fanfic hands down. Nyuu, i pray that you have insperation of possibly some other scenes from the fanfic because i know they would turn out absolutely incredible. You have more than definetly earne a watch from me so that i may continue to enjoy every last artwork you put up. Thank you for these wonderful pieces of art, I tip my hat to you.

i must really thank you for this wonderful image, twidash is my favourite pairing and i didnt know about this fic when i saw it was 180k words long it was daunting but your image was so sad and full of emotion i couldnt help but start reading. 7 hours later and 30 chapters down i didnt want to pull myself away even though it was 4am.

Agreed. While Flutterdash is still my favorite, TwiDash is up there too because of the opposite personalities. But two different ends.
