I was inspired by crookedtrees more realistic style of pony art, and wanted to try something similar. Mine is obviously not near his level, but I kind of like how it turned out, creepiness of realistic ponies aside. I think I'm gonna stick with this pony style for a bit actually.
My first version of this picture was pretty terrible, very G1 :S
So I tweaked it a lot to make it more G4 (like shrank the snout for example), hopefully making her a bit cuter. Also I remade the hair, because the hair on the first attempt looked like a plastic clown wig >_>
So here's Rainbow Dash, chilling in the middle of a rainstorm. Enjoy! Or don't, if the style creeps you out.
