Fanart - MLP. Daring's Salvation by jamescorck Fanart - MLP. Daring's Salvation by jamescorck
Continuing with my idea of giving each of my Halloween pictures some closure, here I show you how I’d see the resolution to Daring Do’s fall you saw a couple of days ago over here [link]

Out of all the ones I made this is probably the one people noticed the least, but to me this is probably the one I like the most. I think I had a lot of fun drawing Daring in distress as she falls to her doom, not knowing what will happen to her. But you know, I know, we all know, that she is a character based on Indiana Jones, and Indy was based on those heroes that kids from the 40’s saw in their TV serials. You know there will always be a vine, a giant spider web, a lake, a mattress or a spring board ready to save the heroine’s life. That’s why we like adventure, because we know that no matter how rough it is for the protagonist, she will always pull through (If you see the previous picture, you will know how much I love Daring and how I explain that in the comments).

It’s always situations like these where we realize the things we have. Daring here has a lot of problems she better deal with soon, or else she won’t be able to tell the story to anyone. She’s bruised, she’s injured, she has a broken wing, and I am pretty sure her heart is racing at the speed of light. But she’s alive, and she can pull through that because nothing can stop her. When we find ourselves hanging on the edge of a cliff, or over a void, we have to consider what we still have, and make the best use of it.

Daring Do comes from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and belongs to Hasbro.

I want someone to make a comic based on the new Tomb Raider game, starring Daring Do. That game was brilliant.

Broken wing
Cuts and bruises
Hanging precariously over a void
A typical Monday
I can perfectly understand what you are saying here: I rather favour the taste of a freshly opened coconut rather than some fancy wine, eating in some merry eatery full of locals rather than some posh five star restaurant and, on a recent trip to NY, I made an itinerary of museums and art galleries (and bought opera tickets) rather than any mainstream attractions. And, on that same trip, I had a New Year dinner of cans and restaurant leftovers with my Mum, and had to take turns to use a single plastic fork, while our travel-mates ran a thousand dollar bill at some overdressed steakhouse that they later told us they just didn't like.
Should I mention that I served fresh coconut juice with lunch today, and later opened the coconuts and I currently have some coconut meal cooling in my fridge? Should I mention that I sold a fancy SUV and got a subcompact that off-roads better than the SUV and fits in any parking space?

Great pic!
very creative^^

Thank you!
welcome ^^
You might've known, I was in suspense :P

I love that her hat landed on her head, also the background is pretty cool

I'm happy I gave you a resolution! I wouldn't want to keep you not knowing what happened next.

And of course I had to have the hat landing on her head. She should never lose her hat.
