A Long Drop and Sudden Stop by MarbleYarns A Long Drop and Sudden Stop by MarbleYarns
While the rewards of being an adventurer are great, the job is hardly glamorous. A hoof in the wrong spot can put an unfortunate stop to any further exploration...

Poor Daring Do. I'm not sure how she's going to get out of this one, but I bet she'll manage.

I'd been wanting to paint Daring Do for a very long time, and after bouncing some ideas around this finally came about. Getting the colors right was exceedingly difficult for me; the purple in the void was actually a stroke I made out of frustration, only to discover that it completely changed the composition and made it work how I had originally imagined. Odd how that happens.

Thanks to Nightfall for bouncing ideas at me to help me get going and for reminding me that her left wing was necessary.

a special thanks to Lauren Faust & the MLP team!

A better question than "how will she get out?"
is "How will she get her hat back?"

this is simply brilliant lighting shadeing coulering and faceal expersion. judgeing by the were in the vine she is on she about to swing dramatically left (momentum suggests this (legs)) or right (closest edge)

i thought ahcurd how did her hat fall down there so fast if according to this still she has only just arived?

I'd been imagining that Daring had accidentally discovered this subterranean gateway by falling through it just moments before what we see here; unlike her hat, she was lucky enough to have her fall arrested—perhaps only temporarily—by the vines. Thanks for the positive feedback, too :D

i this being pluseable but for one thing, no falling moss/dirt/vines eta from where she fell in. how ever a akward fall may sugest but perdiciment and why her hind legs are in such a odd angel (with a brused wing, "cat fall" i imagen is happered) :iconeggmanrobotnikplz: hmmm attually with thos steam clouds underneth as a pegici she should be just fine (a brused wing i dought effects the "air magic")

ether way a enteraining picture to admire you are most wellcome.

Forget the hat, it's dangerous to get it back, not to mention suicide when you have a downed wing. :)

A great work on her too.

A Long Derp & Sudden Stop...I like it. In all probability, it was a derp of some sort that got Daring into this situation...
