MLPFiM - FLY ME TO THE MOON by DDhew MLPFiM - FLY ME TO THE MOON by DDhew
... IN TEN SECONDS FLAT.

Do you ever have those moments when you just feel a desperate need to put a jetpack, space, blue sky and clouds, Rainbow Dash being awesome and a rainbow all in one picture? AND make it slash? No? Well at least someone did it so you don't have to.

I got very ill and felt miserable (I had about 40 degrees celsius fever lol) and then suddenly I felt like kicking that art block in the face and made this with my newly gained spare time. After watching 40 episodes of Mythbusters and countless soap-operas I guess this was pretty much what's in my mind lol.

It's been a while since the last time I had so much FUN drawing anything at all, so this was really refreshing to make. I had a pretty weird drunken pony-debate with :iconcosmiclenin: in a party the other day and we agreed that our common OTP (TwiDash) doesn't get enough love at all in the fandom. WELL HERE, HAVE SOME MOTHERFUCKING LOVE 20% COOLER, this is seriously the way a romance should be! Of course if you wish, you can interpret this as something else than slash too, I don't really care. (but please, PLEASE keep it to yourself if you hate the pairing or are generally an asshole for hating gay people or if this is against your religion or crap like that, I'm not really interested in hearing it and you can just keep your mouth shut and move on, k. pretty please. Intelligent comments and critique that makes sense is always welcome, though<3 )

also I really suck at painting clouds. They kinda ruin the whole picture for me but I just had to stop struggling with them because I just pretty much started making everything worse lol

[edit] Also people, I know that it's not possible to breathe in space and even before suffocating, they'd probably be already freezing to death. I'm a science student, I've studied my physics. I know.

I pretty much never comment on...anything, really...but this is too beautiful not to.

I adore this. SO MUCH.

Seriously, I keep on trying to type, but then I have to scroll up and stare at it some more. I think I'll be admiring this for the rest of the day. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME? ;-;

In short, this is amazing and I love your art and aaaaahhhh.

Although I like the picture, there's one thing that bothers me - go too high and you'll pass out due to lack of oxygen and low temperatures. Then fall back to earth and die before hitting the ground. Other than that, nice picture :p

Jet packs make EVERYTHING cooler! :D

Funny, seeing this pic immediately reminds me a song, performed by Dave Edmunds, called "Dynamite"

Well send me love in a package labelled "Dynamite."
I wanna feel an explosion when I hold you tight.
I got a powerhouse reception waiting for you when
You come back to your loving baby's arms again.

Sailing 'cross the stars into the silvery moon.
If you wanna know what happens I could be there soon.

Well give me kisses that explode before my very eyes.
I know the sight of you can generate a million sighs.
All I'm set for detonation, baby don't you know,
Three two one zero, here I go!

Sailing 'cross the stars into the silvery moon.
If you wanna know what happens I could be there soon.

Dynamite!

Unfortunatley I cannot find an audio sample for you to hear the song, but whether or not this is my OTP, if you can make me think of a song as awesome as "Dynamite" you've done your job as an artist quite well.

If you're wondering it's off the album REPEAT WHEN NECESSARY.

And if you think that the lyrics are good, and haven't heard the song itself yet, wait til you hear what it sounds like. (Dash would approve to say the least.)
