Soarin by harwicks-art Soarin by harwicks-art
I understand that we're likely to get a better idea of how the Wonderbolts work this season with the continuation of Rainbow Dash's story arc.  From all appearances, they seemed to be modeled after precision flight teams like the Navy's Blue Angels, complete with military standing.  The only time we've seen them in "combat" action was against Spikezilla, and one can't say they really proved themselves there.  However, we've seen both Spitfire and Soarin in uniforms instead of flight suits, so the military connection seems strong (and hammered home with the whole "Wonderbolts Academy" episode in general.)

Hopefully Soarin makes another appearance, as he and his love for pie made him memorable in Season One.  It was fun to see him dancing with Dash at the Royal Wedding (friend of the groom, perhaps?), but otherwise he's been fairly scarce since season one.

I actually hope Soarin goes lusting after food in general, or one type of food after another. Like squash or lasanga. First we had Derpy and her muffins, and now this guy.

He looks in his suit, makes him look all professional and still cool as ever >:3

Personally, Soarin' has the potential to be one of my favorite characters. He could be a goofball that tries to be serious at times, but can't maintain the persona for long. He should have a phlegmatic sanguine character, as opposed to Spitfire's choleric and Rainbow Dash's melancholic (I assume those are the two characters the show would follow those two primarily, ergo, the two characters you would see him interacting with most).
Anyways, I would like to see more of him, as well as the other Wonderbolts. There's just so much potential for plot and character. And who knows what else? Perhaps a Surprise appearance?

mortalshinobi Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013
quite the dashing portrait here.  you made him quite well

Hell yes.  I really like Soarin's formal wear rather than his flight suit to be honest.
Daniel-SG Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really like how Soarin is shown alot in a shirt with a tie. I don't know, it just looks really professional and cool to me, lol. 

I would hope something shows up in S4 to actually show the Wonderbolts as badasses. I'm willing to give a bit of benefit to them being so easily swatted away by Spike because, to be fair, they were going against a dragon bigger than most of the buildings in Ponyville. Not much of a fair fight, lol. =p

He almost looks like a good version of Buck Withers from the Shining Armor/Cadance official comic two-parter. But then again, Buck turned out for the better anyway.
Indeed, would be nice to see more of him in any case. He's one of those ponies that give the Wonderbolts a face, and it's a nice face at that.

As ever, sweet shading and pleasant, precise detail coupled with a great transition of the show pony design into the more 3D and detailed format. Well done.
