Cloudsdale Rainbow Fountains Background by mandydax Cloudsdale Rainbow Fountains Background by mandydax
Another background for the Manehattan Project. Based off of [link]

This is probably only going to be used in one or two panels, but I figured I'd do the whole thing. Only took about 90 minutes, including some ragederping with the swirly bits. I kept trying to make them with the spiral tool and then adjusting them, but it just kept sucking, and stroke-to-path was sucking for this, too. Eventually, I just started using the Bezier tool and adjusting the few nodes I made. I ended up doing the whole thing in one layer. Laziness. :3 It's wallpaper-sized, too.

Done in Inkscape: [link]

Y'know how I was going to set strip 2 in Cloudsdale? Then I remembered that Scoots can't fly. :lol: So that's why I needed the park. Poor little chicken.

Yeah... he's got to have some sort of disability or something... or his parents are earth ponies, and he doesn't have anypony to teach him

Scoot's a filly, silly. I should actually take the time to read "Under Your Wings." *gabrieldltc was doing a comic series of it, but he hasn't done one in over a month. I'm still waiting on Mic the Microphone to continue his reading of "My Little Dashie." I think audiobooks and podcasts have spoiled me.

I still think scoots parents are earth ponies. That whole business with the cakes makes it all plausible

Seems legit. ;) I dunno. It could well be. Maybe at some point we'll know for sure, but I really hope they do an episode where Dashie teachesss Scoots to fly and Twilight gives Sweetie magic lessons.

I always loved the classical Greek styling the pegasuses/pegasi use. (Even more so when in the "Hearthswarming" episode we see that they were gung-ho Spartan types.) This captures that feel nicely, and it almost seems tranquil and peaceful.

Of course, with the CMC around it won't stay that way for long. Or intact, probably. XD

Good jorb. :thumbsup:

As I was dying while doing all the swirly bits, I kept thinking how damn pretty the marble looks. I'm glad it turned out so well, and it really was a short session, too.

That would be interesting. And itchy. Remember that the rainbows are so spicy even Pinkie Pie, who loves hot sauce on cupcakes of all things, couldn't stand it. The capsaicin levels must be at the police-grade pepper spray level. ;)
