I'm so, so Sorry, Dashie... by Doovid97 I'm so, so Sorry, Dashie... by Doovid97
This is a depiction of a scene from the amazing MLP fanfic 'My Little Dashie' by :iconrobcakeran53:. A link to the entire story is here: [link] (bring tissues!).

There's a lot of firsts here in this picture.

1. First time drawing a person. Thought I did it quite well
2. First time depicting water/rain. Looks pretty good.
3. Didn't use the mixing brush at all or any Photoshop effects (except a gaussian blur on the tree for the man's shadow)
4. First time making a sad picture. Really had to try hard to have a mood going and make it look dark and depressing. Thought it turned out alright.

Yup, thanks for viewing, guys, would really appreciate it if you +watched me if you liked it, and I'll watch you in return if I like your art!

Cheers.

The bit that got me was "Can't he come with me?" at the end.

I recognized this right away. Anything that reminds me of MLD always makes me so sad but this is an amazing picture. I don't know what emoticon to use, lol

Haha! Thanks! I think the 10/10 emote seems fitting enough!

I didn't even need to read the describtion to know where this was from.

My Little Dashie was the first fanfic I read, and it is still the one that made the most impact on me.

Mine too. In all seriousness I wish I didn't read it, too serious and disappointing and well... real for me. Resonated a bit too much, now whenever I see art like this it brings back all those depressing feelings. Made me swear to never read anymore fanfics.

There's a sequel on Fimfiction that clears it up a bit, gives it a good ending instead of a sad one.

It isn't as well written as the original, but it's really great, still.

Interesting, I read both sequels, and yes I like the new endings a lot more. Still a bit disappointing, but I'll chalk that up to being too engaged and immersed in the story. You can say it was too awesome, lol.

MLD was too awesome, yeah.

I just simply had to find a good ending for it.

there is also "My little dashie a threequel" (which explains some stuff that happened in the sequel ending). Then there is "My little dashie: Fourth times the chime" which i haven't read. They are still pretty awesome. And, this artwork is pretty awesome!

I found the Threequel and read it. If we're talking about the one where "Daddy" is at the Wonderbolt show and everypony knows he lives there.

I think I found another quadra-quell-thingie, but the description said "I'm dying" so I skipped that one.

The original MLD was sad enough, I won't be able to read one where 'Daddy' is dying.

I haven't read fourth times the chime yet, maybe I will, but it will have to be when I can tolerate another depressing story. Is there seriously a story where he's dying? There must be some real masochists out there who can stomach a story like that. I mean seriously, I can only imagine it. Rainbow Dash going through the grief of losing a parent, someone she loved more than anything, is way too much for me to take without being depressed for weeks.

The first fanfic I read was called 'Memories' by :iconcapt-nemo: [link]. Coincidentally, it is also about Rainbow Dash. Really recommend a read of it!
