Flying Lessons by Idess Flying Lessons by Idess
So Rainbow Dash is one of my favorite ponies, and Scootaloo is totally my favorite Cutie Mark Crusader, so I loved the recent episodes where Scootaloo seems a bit obsessed with Dash.
Then I saw this:

And I totally fell in love! I love the idea of Dash being Scootaloo's adopted big sister since the other Crusaders already have their own.

Dash wanting to teach Scootaloo to fly (since obviously Scoot doesn't go to flight school? IDK), but Scootaloo isn't so sure!

Took forever in Photoshop, all pen tool (which I just recently learned!)

Since time immemorial, it has been the way that a young pegasus must take that final step into the infinate and discover their wings...

Of course, no-one is stupid enough to suggest that they do so without someone to catch them if they screw up. What do you think this is, some kind of pseudo-Spartan 'death to failures'-style adulthood ritual? ;)

Great job! You really nailed the style of the background in the show, and I noticed how it's not drastically shaded
well done :iconponyclapplz:

RD: Don't worry squirt, I'll be right by you the whole way.
Scoots: I don't know, this seems really high up, higher than anything I've tried.

Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo both look amazing here, I like how Scoots looks a bit unsure here...you can't go wrong with Dash as your teacher though;-)

Very good job!!!

Dash knows that Scootaloo will have to make the leap sometime, it's sweet to at least get her used to heights. With the treetops there it seems they're not too high, and I'm sure the little filly could make a decent landing from there. Rainbow looks happy to help out, though she's got a bit of teasing look in her eyes too. Or maybe it's a dare. :) Scoot's consternation is perfect for her as she looks over the edge.

If Dash is feeling kind she should at least do a :superman: with Scootaloo, like "training wings" I suppose. ;)

In Cutie Mark Chronicles, Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash just mention "summer flight camp"... so maybe it just isn't the time of the year for Scoots to be away at camp, but I totally agree that it would be awesome for Dash to be Scootaloo's mentor! Nice image!

I love this.

I'm actually a helicopter pilot IRL and this reminds me of a lesson I had just before I tested for my private license. My instructor had me land on a cliff edge that actually looked similar to this scene and had me take off by essentially diving off the edge. Turned out we are both afraid of heights and both got a bit of vertigo from the plunge. Such playfulness!

I also like the idea of Dash forcing Scoots into a situation of "you'll learn to fly or die trying."

Awesome story! That really does sound like a fun (albeit a bit scary) time, especially with something like a helicopter!

Haha I can totally imagine Dash saying something like that too X3

I was into the old 1980's MLP when I was a kid, but totally skipped all the generations up to then (the two before this one were hideous, omg). I love the new designs to death, there's just something so appealing to it n.n
