My God, Rainbowdash, your hair! Your hair! What a pain in the-- oh right! Why does she have an ax on her butt? If you get the reference, good on you, if not...
Blame these people. [link]

Hooray for hand-drawn ponies! Screw you Photoshop, with your fancy, fancy, oh so pretty vectors! (God, I wish I had Photoshop... ;_; ) Anyway, enjoy the best pony, now made better due to axes!

Heh. Someone linked this pic to me once, and we somehow got discussing making it the other kind of "axe". This pic came out of all that: i.imgur.com/HpfAO.png =p


I have to say, that axe makes one wicked looking electric guitar :XD:

Hard to choose, one handed axes you can swing easier, but two handed axes are heavier and do more damage... I'll have to go with two handed axes. Maximum Carnage!! >: D

The look on RD's face... Nicely done. I now only have one question remaining...

Two-handed axe, or two one-handed axes?

That is all kinds of awesome. I love how the axe can also look like a bad-ass electric guitar if you squint right. Of course it is a double-axe...

Thanks. It was a long while ago that I did this one, so I don't remember if the guitar thing was intentional or not. ... I'm gonna claim it as intentional... so I look clever-rer. ;P Thanks for your comment. :)

This is win. Also by rainbow's expression I don't think she was being serious. I think I need to work with Rainbow to teach people and ponies about the magic of Sarcasm lol. Otherwise we end up with Fluttertree!

After staring at her butt for a while, I started to see it as a guitar... then I realized how epic a guitar with that desing would look...

If it were a guitar it'd could still be called an ax XD So I guess you can call it a Guitar if you want to. ;p

It's a guitar ax. You can play music and chop off dragon heads. At the same time.

She looks a bit unhappy... still, if your talent is combat if a place like Equestria, I suppose life must be a bit quiet... and hard to find employment in. (Well I suppose there's the guard.)

Yes she does. I kinda drew her with a "This isn't quite what I had in mind" sort of expression.

And Rainbow dash in the royal guard would be hilarious. A bright blue, rainbow-maned mare at the head of the royal carriage with pristine white stallions. Very humorous mental image.

A battle ax. The blades are the lightning bolt of her normal cutie mark. I may redo that part cause it's hard to see. (plus I'm not good at metal textures, so the blades look a bit odd.)
