Egghead by Dahtamnay Egghead by Dahtamnay
Naturally I'm way late with this reference to Read It and Weep. Rainbow Dash as egghead—literally.

I realize that this is the first digital painting I've uploaded to DeviantArt. I don't make those that often, maybe because they take so darn long to complete. This one was made over the course of about one week. Also, drawing 99 books in a single image—that is more than enough to break one's sanity.

... you know, this makes me wonder. If Dash had an egg for a head... What'd hatch from that egg? :iconapplejackishighplz:

The rendering is so... claylike. Really a captivating and... the word that sort of combines "alluring" and "entrancing" rendering style...

Yes, I definitely noticed the link with surrealism while I was working on this. Funny how it reminded me of The Son of Man too. Maybe because I had already seen a ponyfied version of that painting?
