MLP: FiM – Bashful Rainbow Dash

More shading practice, but I decided to change things up again and let Twilight have a rest from modelling. So today I nabbed Dashie. I happened to notice this particular expression when rewatching The Cutie Mark Chronicles. She gets a short couple frames of bashfulness while Scootaloo is busy fangirling all over her. The blush isn’t part of the original pose, but I added it because I thought it would help ramp up her cuteness (not that she needs it, but I wanted to try and see anyway).

Overall, this is probably one of my best drawings. The shading is more gradual in most places and I think I’m getting better at determining how to guess where to shade in relation to a light source. Something about the bangs bugs me a bit, but I’m not entirely sure why.
