Wonderbolts: Assault Horizon by Jeffk38uk Wonderbolts: Assault Horizon by Jeffk38uk
Rainbow Dash: "I saw my death in my dreams.... the nightmare that I'll never forget. That was my reality."

Took me a while but I finally finished this piece. Combining Ace Combat: Assault Horizon with Wonderbolt Academy seemed like a no brainer to me.

Originally Lightning Dust was also wearing the same cadet uniform but this didn't show the same clash of personality as the original cover did so I made her wear a Shadowbolt uniform instead. Contrasts well I think.

I hope you guys and gals enjoy the end result. Let me know if you are interested in a non logo version as well.

After making it out alive from the first mission in which you always win, but the was is still far from over:

Player: Who was that Captain?
Rainbow Dash: Lightning Dust... I never thought I would face her again.
Player: You know that mare?
Rainbow Dash: She's dangerous. You are too inexperienced, so you better stay away from her. She is fearless to a fault, has no regards for anything.
Player: How do you know all this?
Rainbow Dash: ... because, we went at the academy together ...

I just used the same cadet uniform design from Wonderbolt Academy actually. Lightning Dust' colour scheme I adapted from a Shadowbolt uniform.

The way Lighting Dust is portrayed in this reminds of Char Aznable from Moble Suit Gundam.

I've never played any of the Ace Combat games but it sounds like the story within within the games could be just as moving as the best parts of the Mobile Suit Gundam Series.

When I saw this, this little dialog popped up;
Lightning Dust: There you are Rainbow Dash, has the fear gotten to you yet?
Thunderlane: Lightning Dust is broadcasting in our frequency, get out from my face!
Lightning Dust: Dash, it's something you're not used to, is it? Fear? But you are afraid, that's why you're running!

I agree with other person that it fits better with Ace Combat zero.

YES! :+fav:
After watching Wonderbolt academy I also had a very similar thought but with Ace Combat Zero, with Rainbow Dash as Cipher and Lightning Dust as Solo Wing Pixy. :D
Nice work!

Never played the PS2 ones but I heard they were the best. Only played AC3 wayy back then and AC6 on 360. Hope to get AH on PC tho.
