Rarity by dracontiar Rarity by dracontiar
Whee, finally posting this!

I once did a painting series of the Mane Six, and somehow I got the idea of doing Rarity's a little more stylized, like a fashion sketch, and with all the elegance and poise befitting her.

This was an expansion of that idea, done for a commission. I had so much fun working on this. I don't work this loosely most of the time, and I got to use and discover some new techniques.

I would say that one of the biggest factors that allured me to this piece has to be the elegance in which it has been presented! The painted canvas is such a wonderful look for this piece and gives it a sort of vintage victorian look which I love very much! I also love the character deesign and the way that you captured so much grace within her pose! Her garments and the wisply flowing style that you made it with look just lovely and I also appreciate the smaller details that were included in the dress as well such as the subtle color transitions! The atmosphere surrounding her enhances the feel of the piece and I love the way that the subtle lighting and shading as well as the color work give depth which is the cherry on top! This is a fantastic piece and I very much look forward to more of your exquisie art in the near future! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

I love this so much. That dress is almost too good... the strokes you used make it look exactly like cloth should in this medium. And that design... It fits Rarity so well, makes her even more incredibly beautiful than usual. That mane, that hat, that pose and that eye... all just so wonderfully beautiful. Well done indeed.

Thanks! I wish I could figure out how this would look on a human, so I could have it made and just wear it all the time to everything. If you do design dresses like this, let me know!

Actually, I want to try and draw Rarity as a human with this dress! May I?
(My dress designing is still in the kinks since I'm still new to it all)
