Where the Rainbow Grows by Ardail Where the Rainbow Grows by Ardail
Just something for :iconveggie55:'s contest. This is based on his comic "It's your life" [link], Where they said they missed Rainbow Dash. So I was terrible person and made this... HARD MODE! Play this song while looking at it [link]

Anyways I hope not too much quality was lost trying to paint 7 different pictures at once. The lighting and trying to work that close up to objects was the hardest parts to do on 7 different pictures.

And yes the name is a version of the name "where the red fern grows" such a sad book...

It's just such a sad song. Made me tear up at the end of skyward sword. 

I really do need to remake this comic sometime. Make the feels look better

This is too sad! If Rainbow really did die, I would've cried 'till i've gone blind. Too amazing!!!!!

Sorry for the bucket load of feels :iconthatfeelplz:
I'm glad this old thing had that going for it. This is so old that looking back the artwork could really use an update

Very cool, love the sort of homage to "Where the Red Fern Grows".

you might be the only person who thought of that first, instead of the feels
But yes it was kind of homage to that since I cried to that book as a small child

A very good classic. 
I remember my 5th grade teacher reading it to the class and at one point he was having a hard time trying to read it because he was tear up so much

I had the same thing happen. My fourth grade teacher read most of the ending in tears, and when your 50 year old teacher can't hold back her tears, it's even harder for a fourth-grader to keep from crying.

It's funny how many people still find this comic I made, I personally hate the art. REALLY needs an update

Not really but just the fact that it has feeling. I look into everything as if it was me. And if I was Scootaloo i would be sad too. but the real fact was that the tears created a rainbow flower on her grave. I thought that was cool. I love the relationship Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo have. Also I like it because I just love the quality used. Poems, Fanfics, comics, videos, anything that makes me cry, I automatically love it. Like Snowdrop, it made me cry! And I still watch it to this day. I'm not being rude, but I just wanted to explain it to you.

Naw, I didn't think you sounded rude. 
I was just trying to be sarcastic, but there is no font for sarcasm which is annoying :/

But ya, I totally get what you mean, and I do lots of pictures with strong sad emotion in them because I can't really compete as far skill goes, so maybe I can succeed in the impact instead and keep working on get good skill :work:

Amazing piece man, I really have to say that your art is amazing, and I really love how you were able to make this in such a way that is very unique from the many things that I see from a day to day basis. You have serious talent, keep up the awesome work! :D

Haha, I know what ya mean my friend, as I have felt the same with what I do now than what I did before. However, I still thought that it was really really good, and I really loved that ending... I made a story similar, only it was scoots death! XD  If you do end up recreating it, I would definitely love to check it out! :D
