Rare Beauty by ecmajor Rare Beauty by ecmajor
Surely this title has not been used before. *eyeroll*

But anyway... It's no secret that i think Rarity is pretty fabulous, so i couldn't help myself and drew her s'more.
My lovely poni waifu :>
...if only. ;___;

The traditional media portion of this picture was different in that i inked the entire thing rather than shade it with graphite. It was quicker, and pens worked better for the miniscule details of her accessories probably... but it lacks the nice shading. Ah well...
I know what people will say. So i'll refrain from saying how awful this turned out. :| ... ... ...No, just kidding XD i know it's not bad. It was a lot of work, and i think it shows.
And it's not perfect, but... it'll do!
As for the subject well, she IS perfect. Oh, Rarity. <3

For those who're curious, Here's what it looked like when it was just inks -> [link]

Green is weird. Especially on Rarity. ...but i really like this outfit, it's kinda nature-y somehow. I bet Fluttershy would like it.
I don't often see lipstick on ponies, but i did recently (i forget where i saw it or who's art it was :S) and was inspired to use some here. I think it suits her!

I'll stop blabbing. Enjoy!

Funny considering she doesn't like green, that is the color she doesn't like... right?

Equine accurate all of my YES!! i really like all your art, your style is unique all of your drawings show an astonishing talent, skill and the perfect balance of anthropomorphism and animal spirit, the anatomy is very accurate with the animals from the shading to the musculature. You are a being to be proud of.

I like your rendition of rarity.
I remember one episode with rarity saying she does not like the color green. I think it was the episode with trixie.

Adult Spike: So rarity, what this reward you want to- HOLY GUACAMOLE!!! O_0
Rarity: oh good you came. Now come over here spike and claim your reward for all your hard work. ;)
Adult Spike: yes my mistress.

*and on that day spike and rarity found true love and lost their V-card to each other. Pince BlueBitch was executed for lying about being royal blood to either princess. Gilda also came back to ponyville to meet up with her secrect admirer , who was shocked to find out it was Fluttershy, but decided to give it a shot…They're still dating to this very day.*

Very well made picture. It is more in line with her equine traits than the show, yet it still depicts her cartoon beauty that creates emotions for the viewers that a horse could never create.

You probably hear this a lot, but I absolutely love your work. Easily my favorite artist (who regularly draws ponies). Follow your Tumblr, too.
...
But there's this undefinable something about each of your works that just kinda slightly creeps me out. I don't know what it is and sometimes I find myself just staring at your works intently trying to figure it out. Perhaps describing your work as 'hauntingly beautiful' would be more accurate?

The inking looks nice here.
I do love the numerous extras on Rarity besides the overall outfit. It really brings out her bright eyes and her mouth.

And ever since that episode with the flying competition, I just cannot like Rarity in green. That episode scarred it. I feel in certain shades, she could pull it off but... man...

Overall, ILOVE IT. XD

I haven't watched that episode in a while and i don't remember too many details... maybe i should go watch it - at least for the magnificence of Rarity getting carried away in her vanity, lol. XD
Thank you! The little accessories are so much fun to add on!

I spent some time ogling over this on your tumblr last night. Everything from her smile to her outfit to the musculature of her body really makes me smile. She certainly looks very ladylike, and the piece is very enjoyable to look at!
Most excellent work, as always!

I say! This turned out just beautiful EC! Really, really well done. I see you didn't use the red color for the chair as you were experimenting with in the livestream, and I think the blue turned out really well, except it makes the greeen stand out really much, but that it's a bad thing, I really like the theme of her entire outfit.

Once more, Well done! *kissies*
