Not sure what hardships were involved, but they certainly worked out in the end! This piece looks great. Love the lighting coming from the windows, the colors, and their expressions. Very nice work!

I'm glad you didn't scrap it, too. :)

I really like their expressions - Spitfire's bewilderment, and Dashie's restrained but righteous anger. And the way that the light's flooding in through the half-closed blinds into an otherwise relatively dark room is great, too, and creates a lot of atmosphere: it gives the picture a hot, brooding feel, which in turn fits right in with what's going on.

So yeah, very good work!

I'M TRYING TO SAY THAT THEY CHANGED YOUR VOICE AND ADDITUDE

first off

Spitfire was voiced by Maryke Hendrikse in season 1 (episodes 16 and 26), and either Maryke or Ashleigh Ball in season 2 (episode 22). In this episode, she's voiced by Kelly Metzger, sounding a bit higher.

secondly about attidude

The idea that she's normally a really laid back pony who has to put on the drill sergeant mask to deal with recruits is quite amusing to me. I know some people question the fact that she basically doesn't acknowledge that Rainbow Dash saved her life, but that really goes with the territory; in this sort of pseudomilitary setting, you can't let yourself show favoritism. ( A very subtle thing that I noticed during the episode was that when Spitfire was chewing RD out at the beginning and RD stayed stone cold giving the correct response, she gave a small smile; I'm sure she never forgot. This isn't a change in character, just another facet of her character.)
