Afraid of Her Own Shadow by PsychoDikdik Afraid of Her Own Shadow by PsychoDikdik
I came up with the sketch for this pretty quickly and was quite happy with it. But I also wanted to finish it in something other than vector. After three or four days of trying different things only to scrap them, I figured I'd take the easy way out and just vector it anyway. I'm like the concept, just not really happy with the finished product =(

The character Fluttershy is trademarked by Hasbro.

Dear PsychoDikdik,
I came here to tell you that I used your picture with Fluttershy and her shadow in one of my YouTube videos. I also put the picture in description. I didn't knew it was yours because I took it from Google Images. Then, I searched in Da to see if someone drew this picture. But it was so immature from me. You have all my apologies.
***I just wanted to know if it is ok to use it. If not, I will quickly delete the video.
Here is the link for the video: [link]
In rest, the picture is very beautiful!

I'd be scared of my shadow if it looked at me like that too!

Those eyes...
"My nightmare self, furious with my failure..."
Fluttershy is The Girl?

I pretty much nod to what everyone else said, nice job, love the symbolism, blah blah blah.

The idea is something I like, now I really wonder how things would be if Fluttershy completely lost her mind in an episode (aside from Best Night Ever), it would lead to some interesting results.

I love the symbolism here. Her shadow seems to actually be a repressed "dark side" that she's kept locked away for years and years, and only recently had she slipped and let it out a la the Flutterrage scene from episode 26. Now, it constantly whispers horrible things into the back of her head.

That's what happens when you bottle up your anger for your, uhm, entire life. I like to think that Fluttershy actually lets some of her past anger flow during athletic activities, as she tends to do them a little TOO well. Remember FlutterChiropractor from (uh) 1.5 hours ago? xD Yeah.

I like how Hasbro is making cracks about Fluttershy being violent and aggressive. Apparently they are having fun with Rule 15: The more pure and beautiful something is, the more satisfying it is to corrupt it. And bottling up your emotions like that tends to come back to bite you in the flank...

Flutterbitch still lurks, locked in the recesses of her mind, waiting for the day when she will emerge again.

This... is actually a nice idea. Somepony someday might write a fanfic explaining exactly why she's afraid of her own shadow.

FS "dies", zecora found out that she is not "dead", the girls bring her back, and SHIT start happening...

Don't be so down on yourself! It turned out great the way it is. :)
And it is a interesting concept-who would have knew Fluttershy had reason to be afraid of her own shadow?
