Dashie's turn to be catified. :heart:

Lemme know if something doesn't look right.

Dashie's trying to claim Rara's title as top cuddle pony.

EDIT: Adjusted the display size so it doesn't take up your whole screen when you zoom.

First off, I want to say that I continue to enjoy your cat-pone art style. It's a great shot of medicine when life is trying to drag me down.

Vision/Originality:
The cat-like approach to the ponies is nothing new these days, but somehow you always manage to make yours feel fresh... there just never seems to be enough of it. The particular way you depicted Dash both seeking affection and not being happy to have that side of her seen by someone else also toes the line between a "new take" and "the norm." That said, I don't care how common this sort of art becomes, I'll always be ready for more.

Technique:
The way you draw the ponies continues to play well to your themes in these pieces you put up here. It just enhances the fluffle-daww factor by some undefined value. In this particular piece though (last panel) Dash's eye shading feels a bit too hard, like it could have used just a bit of blur to smooth it out. Also, the blush from her left cheek bleeding onto part of her muzzle looks like it may have been unintentional as it doesn't affect the muzzle more uniformly. These are just minor things in the overview though and don't detract significantly from the whole.

Impact:
The Daww factor remains strong, and I particularly liked the hearts multiplying as it went on. Your depiction of facial expressions is so spot on that one can almost hear purring from Dash. Bravo on another fantastic pony piece.
What do you think?

well, my dog does that, too. but instead of my hand, she stands on my foot. and after a few seconds, she runs off, drops down on the grass and rolls around for half an hour, only to crash right into the backside of my legs, causing me to fall down, and lay down on my chest. its cute, but she is kinda getting too heavy. :)

nah, she is just a, well, i dont know what EXACTLY she is, but based on her overall behaviour, i guess its not really a dog, but more a antelope, a skunk, a kangaroo and a lot of other stuff in the body of a dog.
and yes, its as crazy as it sounds. :)

I remember my cat did that.
She would then sit on my hand, and uses both her fore legs to hug my arm and keeps snuggling it.

At this point there's a chance she breaks into a fit and bite my arm like she's having a fight.

There are those times where you just can't withstand your cat's cuteness that you just wanna hug it so hard or shake it crazy.

My cat had those... on my hand. I missed that arrogant piece of fur...
