"The instants blurred together. Dash lunged, struck, retreated, leaped, and spun. She sank into a near-trance, focusing on the way the creatures moved, using it to anticipate where they'd be at any given moment. She dodged strikes so fast she couldn't actually see them."

Anyone remember that old MLP fanfic, The Dread Chitin? It was released on Equestria Daily nearly a year ago, and got positive reviews but was pretty much forgotten after that. I happen to be a pretty big fan of it, so much of a fan, in fact, that I decided to spend a crap ton of time drawing some epic-as-I-can-possibly-ma ke-it fanart.

I can't believe how much time I spent on this (around three days, give or take), and I can hardly believe I was able to finish it (since that's something I almost never do), but I guess I was.

I really like how this turned out; it's much better than my previous dabbles into digital drawing media (most likely because I actually tried my hardest with this one). I think I drew the monsters slightly wrong, but by the time I figured that out, I was already halfway done, so they're gonna stay that way.


Oh, and give the fic a read sometime if you haven't. It's really good. t/story/3193/The-Dread-Ch itin
