Mobile Suit Equestria: Rainbow Dash by AnimeFlux Mobile Suit Equestria: Rainbow Dash by AnimeFlux
Whew... I don't generally do mech stuff. Ever. Because it takes for-friggin'-ever. BUT! This has been buzzing around my head for a while now, and I finally decided to try it out.
This is the first in what I HOPE will be a series of MLP crossover art, called Mobile Suit Equestria: Friendship Must Advance.

For any of you attending Anime Weekend Atlanta this year, you can look forward to prints (and possibly posters) of this.

MlP:FiM and Eva/Gundam? okay, my interest is piqued.

Also really great coloring. I love the way how Dash's hair might be colored rainbow, or it could be like a dirty blondy and it's just showing up in rainbow colors from the ambient light thats hitting it.

MLP FiM and Gundam crossovers, crossovers rules...

She's on a gundam, she's a pilot! Professional fan art, I really love it, like an anime style of human Rainbow Dash! Go Rainbow Dash, take em out!

Nice title: Mobile Suit Equestria: Friendship Must Advance. Hehehe...

If you were going with an EVA based concept, I would have called the series Neon Genesis Equestria, rather than Mobile Suit.  </nitpick> 

Other than that, I like this pic.

Thanks for the praise.

Concerning your other point, I will quote myself from a previous explanation:

"I don't intend this to be an exclusive parody concerning Eva or Gundam. It could fall into any of those universes, in my opinion. I'm not a mecha enthusiast, and my idea of that whole genre is probably different than that of hardcore fans. For example, I consider the term "mobile suit" to basically mean any kind of mech suit. So Eva, Gundams, and even Jaegers fall into that category for me. I'm sure some folks will disagree with me, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it."

I'm not really sure yet. If you notice, discord is shown in this pic as an "angel" from Evangelion. So if anything, I'd show the villains that way. Time will tell.

EVA fans, from what I can gleam from the title:

Mobile Suit Gundam + Equestria = Mobile Suit Equestria

Mobile Suit Equestria ≠ Equestria + EVA

For all those mentioning EVA and its characters, I'll counter by asking why we couldn't have Rainbow Dash instead of Kamille Bidan in Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta, or even Amuro Ray in the original series. Great pilots, but I doubt Rainbow would have whined half as much as them.

But seeing Rainbow Dash in ANY mecha series would be great, especially with a character design as great as this! Great job :iconanimeflux:, you are quite the artist!

Bottom line, I'm just having fun drawing MLP in mech-suits :)

It does in fact encompass a whole variety of shows, but I made the assumption that since you put "Mobile Suit" instead of "Mecha" you were referencing Gundam specifically rather than being all encompassing. That's how I consider the terminology anyways. My mistake, and I guess I'm still just mad about how much flak some EVA fans gave Pacific Rim.

I'd still like to see some more pony mecha, no matter the source even if I don't like EVA. Wish there was more of a call for it...thanks for making this excellent art though! Best Rainbow Dash human I've seen, and the outfit is great.

No worries. I thought the title was slightly more ambiguous, since the full title of the project (shown in the description) is Mobile Suit Equestria: Friendship Must Advance, which is a throwback to the newer Eva series (You Can [not] Advance, etc). Still, I fully expected folks to interpret it however they would, and I'm cool with that.

Thanks for the praise, I appreciate it! Shy

I did not pick up on the EVA reference as I am not an avid watcher of the series: didn't like the first one, so I didn't see anything past that point. Like I said, I assumed based off of the main deviation title.

And you are very welcome. You deserve the praise, and I look forward to seeing the rest of this series. I voted for Applejack, but I think we'll be seeing Fluttershy since she was leading the poll by a bit. I'm sure they all will be great though!

On a side note, if you ever want to develop the idea a bit more I would be more than willing to lend my writing abilities. Fanfic, brainstorming, anything at all. Anything to help this idea!
