Fanart - MLP. Pinkie's Rescue by jamescorck Fanart - MLP. Pinkie's Rescue by jamescorck
Direct sequel to this picture over here [link]

I know quite a lot of people wanted to see how this sequel turned out to be. This happened, unsurprisingly, after Equestria Daily (kindly) uploaded the original one in one of their Drawfriends. I love it when that happens, since it's when I get all of my feedback. I am the kind of guy who doesn't care for the views or the favorites. I want the comments. All the feedback please! I need it! I love it! Give it to me. It's like candy, I can't never get enough.

I felt instantly bad when I started the drawing previous to this one. Drowning is probably one of the most painful ways to die, and definitely the most agonizing one. It's a situation nobody wants to find themselves into, even less so if you are a happy party planner pink pony. I made this picture more for myself than for the people wondering whether she'll live or die. I needed to see her alive and well. Well, she'll have a cold, and a certain fear of water from now on, but she will pull through. Hadn't it been for her best friend Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie would've...I don't even want to type it down, I'm sorry.

It's situations like this one that we need to see more often nowadays. People are in trouble. They don't have the water at their necks, they are right below it and nobody is throwing them nothing to hold on to. I think the biggest problem is that, because we are also in trouble, we don't consider helping those who are doing worse than us. Maybe that's why we don't see people helping other people more often. It's because we are selfish, and we think our problems are the most important. If we stop thinking like that for a second though, we are capable of doing amazing things. Fluttershy must be scared to death of water, but that didn't stop her from grabbing a life saver and throwing it to her friend. We all need to be rescued, sooner or later, and we all should be brave enough to rescue somebody else too.

Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie come from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and belong to Hasbro.

This is perfect.
Ahem, I hope you do not mind if I use this as a cover for my fan fic, which is centered around Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy.
If you want to read it (It's not done yet), it's here.

Dang it! I already have enough fanfiction ideas to work with. Why did you have to give me another one! Argh!

P.S. Love both pictures. Mind if I borrow this one as the cover?

Well, I have done a little research on the sensations of drowning two or more years ago (The Perfect Storm seemed to have a chapter describing, with excruciating details, the process of drowning), conclusion? It seemed to be one of the most painful ways to die. Of course there are worse possibilities, but drowning is such a common cause of death, making this all the more horrible. I mean, I have choked on water by accident, and even that caused me to cough violently and got all teary, and my nose and lung burned. Now raise that pain by the power of 10, and that would be really, really bad.
I couldn't think of a worse way to die (except some really bizarre ways), but here seems to be a research paper that may be relevant.

She will, she will. She just needs some rest and time to heal up.

Sadly, Fluttershy is not Aqua Man. She's useful, to start with.

I don't know what breaks my heart more, is it fluttershy's face (which looks very sad and caring), or pinkie pie's unworldly demeanour looking as if she's lost in her own world and not having the usual, selfless, happy thoughts.

Like Solid-Pony said I just have a nitpick myself. Why isn't Fluttershy wet? How'd pinkie reach the life preserver? The clouds are white, while the water is dark. And pinkie seems to have a hunchback, I guess it's because she is slouching and is using one hoof. Maybe it should look a little more flatter. Regardless of that, the hunchback just adds to the frightening atmosphere.

You PERFECTLY set and caught the atmosphere. The scary darkish wavey water, the wood, both their cutie marks look drained of happiness, their facial expressions and their color. Just seeing Shading on pinkie pie's hoofs Wrenches my heart.

Btw, I love the splashing water at the bottom of the dock.

Like some of your other works this is Honey to my eyes!! The more I look at it the more I sink into it.

Keep up the good work!!!

So things turn out okay for Pinkie after all. That's good; without her Equestria is a little darker.

When you said you'd have a sequel out the other day, I wasn't expecting it quite so soon, so props for that. Not sure what exactly it is about it, but I like the way you did Pinkie's mane. I'm not very good at critique, all I have is a nitpick. That is Pinkie's tongue there, the reddish orange bit, yes? I feel like it's angled a bit strangely, it looks sort of like it's coming from the roof of her mouth rather than the bottom.

But either way nice image. Like I said before, everyone can appreciate a happy ending.

Nothing should ever happen to Pinkie.

Also, the tongue's position is due to emphasize how she's coughing the water out of her lungs.

Great job man. I love all the detail you put into this image. I seriously don't want to imagine what drowning feels like (who does?) and you made it easy to feel the emotion going on in your picture with all of the coloring, shading and character features. that's an A for me. and I'm also feeling relieved that we got a picture showing us what happened after the drowning picture. Great work man.

Thank you!

I couldn't leave the drowning picture without closure. I needed to give it that, my brain was begging me to.
