In The Rain by Rain-Gear In The Rain by Rain-Gear
Sometimes you just have to draw sad horses.
Was quite a nice piece to work on and of course it's always a pleasure to draw Fluttershy.
May be offering this as a print at Buck next year if I get the chance to vend c:

Hope you like it!
Thanks!

So first off i'm going to say I don't see many of these types of paintings, normally there cheerful pony paintings, so its a nice change from the usual.
The lighting in the picture is great as it draws your eye down towards Fluttershy and makes your eye take in more detail as she is quite vibrant in comparison to the rst of the painting.
The use of motion in the wings is also good as the way the rains being swept around her shows the wing motion.
I also like the way shes been framed as everything all together seems to make an almost oval frame for her.

Personally I really like this as its a nice change of pace, along with the colours making it eye catching.
What do you think?

I get that a lot. I also thought about "Man In The Rain" by Mike Oldfield, but then thought that it didn't really in with the scenario of the image. "Cry" by Godley And Creme seemed more appropriate. :)

This is so beautifully sad it hurts, but it's awesome. You did a fantastic job showing Fluttershy's misery, especially with the mingling of rain and tears. Yet the optimism still shines like that rainbow, and highlighting her with one of those sunbursts gives the whole picture even more impact. You did a gorgeous job on the pegasus herself, great details and textures, on top of a wonderful set of body language and that heartbreaking expression. Awesome work on the entire landscape, the lovely cottage, and even the stormy sky. There's plenty of amazing detail... down to that one tiny little detail at the base of the tree that explains why she's so miserable. :( Also, I like the airflow effect you made for her flapping wings too.

 

Anyway, thanks for making such a great piece and sharing it with us. :hug:

Thank you, Fluttershy just has all the right visuals to express emotions of dismay the best in my opinion. Makes it a lot more fun oddly to see how I can make use of her.
Oh you noticed it? Heh I thought it might be too small to properly see but I guess not.

Thank you for the insightful comment, it's greatly appreciated!

I see a group of fans regrouping for a massive hug for comforting her. Sad ponies has this effect on us. Even more Fluttershy.

Aww, poor Fluttershy. She may be adorable, but this is a sad kind of adorable, can't help but feel bad for her =p

I really like the water flinging effect off of her wings, gives the sense that she's actually in motion, even though this doesn't move. Nice job =)

Yeah, either way she remains adorable.
Felt the need to play around with that effect because of all the rain and what not. Seems to have worked out.

"I've seen creatures big and small open their eyes for the first time, as they awaken to explore this strange new world.  I've watched them grow every day, knowing what will come.  I've laughed with them, I've cried with them, and I've protected them.  But deep down, I know it will never last.  They're so small, no matter how big they may seem... after they wake up, they only have so long before they close their tired eyes and fall asleep for the last time...  The bunnies bounce, the bears forage, the eagles soar above, but one day they'll come back for the last time.  I knew every last one of them by name, and I never forget any of them, even after so many years.  As long as I'm here, they'll never really be gone.  But what happens when I'm not?  When I'm gone, will they disappear?  And will I join them?

"Will I be lost... like tears in the rain?"
