Rainbow Dash Woodwork: Rainboom Flight by xofox Rainbow Dash Woodwork: Rainboom Flight by xofox
A long awaited piece for :iconovertherainbowdash: this piece is done in walnut, ash and pine for the pony, rainbow and cloud respectively. I'm afraid that, while flying, Dashie can only be posed in a couple of ways, especially for a sonic rainboom, so she more or less looks like the other two diving Dashies.
I originally intended to raise this entire piece up on the cloud side to leave Rainbow Dash free hanging so that she could dangle off the edge of a desk or shelf or whatever, and to this end I made a bottom half for this cloud weighted with lead shot. But to counterweight the rainbow and the pony the base ended up being huge, so I ended up just using Rainbow as one of the supports.
On the whole, eh, not one of my best pieces, and not one of my favorites. I did it over the course of a week and a half and I don't like doing projects piecemeal . I like to take a day off and just do a single woodwork for like fourteen hours, but it just can't happen these days. So here you have it.
Want to see more? She has an expanded gallery over at My Little Woodcraft.

Rainbow Dash and My Little Pony belong to Hasbro.

The peace is pretty good. The shape and details are well done. I like how you made the wings. Amazing as always.

Thanks. I'm not particularly fond of it, but I did like the wings at least. I'm glad you do too. :)

Okay, WOW. The platter detailing on the cloud and at the end of the rainbow looks absolutely fantastic. I love the whole dive bomb idea, and the wings are absolutely beautiful. You may not believe this is one of your best works, but the originality is just wonderful. I can't wait to display her proudly up on my shelf.

well I would agree it's not the best stuff you made so far- but the little 'rainbow splatter' details on the cloud makes it up a little bit!
You keep going detailed on the wings, so I got nothing more against this!

Awesome work Xofox, I can't find any flaw in the pony itself this time, sorry.
The only thing I dislike is the rainbow, but I think it was meant to be that way :)

Oh goodness no, the rainbow is just really shoddy! I was angry at myself for not doing anything for so long so I swore to go do woodwork on Friday regardless, and ended up freehanding the rainbow at three am. :| Not too proud of that, but it happened, so hurumph I suppose.

Good gracious no.
Like I've said I always really enjoy the criticisms more than the praise, it makes me feel like I'm progressing when I have specific negatives to work on. :D

I always feel bad when I do criticism for someone because often people feels like they are not doin enough even tho they put a lot of effort in things.

I understand, and sure, I always put a ton of work into these. It's never like I sit down with a design and decide to shirk. So when I get criticism, it's like, I know what amount of effort I've put into this, so I know that criticism isn't a personal insult, it's help from new eyes and minds where I need it.
