new episode of MLP was leaked last night, so I decided to draw something for it.

sorry the picture is so small, I really didn't like the larger resolution of it so I scaled it down.

hmm. Not very proud of this piece, but I worked hard on it. Also, perspective is really difficult ;;

I actually kinda liked the character of Lightning Dust; she's basically Dash cranked up to eleven. She's what Dash would be if she didn't have friends to temper her and 'bring her down to earth'.

The trails are a little off compared to the perspective, but otherwise very nice work!

I think the more realistic way that episode should've ended is that Dusty (which is the nickname I am henceforth giving Lightning Dust) got suspended or disciplined, not just outright thrown out. I mean, lets put it in a list of points which go in Dusty's favour (marked with a + ) and those against her (Those with a - ):
+ Firstly, she was only REALLY a newbie, and so one should, even in a pony army, have somewhat more lee-way.
+ She was only doing what she had been ordered to do.
+ She had a great deal of potential.
- Admittedly, she was more reckless than is good, but as said earlier, she is in fact, a newbie, and was probably out to impress her superiors.
- She did endanger the lives of civilians with her tornado
+ However, those civilians really should not have been there during training in the first place. That's like taking a walk through a shooting range during live ammo fire practice, and that was therefore events beyond her control.
+ It was her first offence, and considering the potential she showed, it seems harsh to toss her aside so quickly.
- She did endanger the lives of her fellow recruits, however, again, she was trying to impress, and at the end of the day, none of them were actually seriously injured.

That's all I can think of right now, but still.

i agree we need to take into consideration that she was at least close to rainbow dash's level and rainbow dash has done things that far outstripe what the most elite members of the wonderbolts do

I really liked Ligthening Dash, I wish she had learn her lesson and ask to still be Rainbowdash's wing pony to redemy herself. She was a good character.

Lightning Dust is cute but she deserved to be thrown out of the wonder bolts academy.

Perspective is indeed hard, Rai. Relating to that, the areas that kinda bug me are RD and LD's contrails. Perhaps it's partly because of how they're so stylized, but they seem to be coming out of their bodies rather than trailing behind them. Other than that, though, it's a good piece and I love the way you created lighting effects with the sun in the background.
