Rarity by SoulSpade Rarity by SoulSpade
After doing that semi-realistic drawing of AppleJack I decided I'd give it another shot with another pony.

I chose Rarity, because there's practically no art of her in my gallery and I've been feeling quite guilty about it

Rarity needs love too, ya know?

That is astonishing. One of the first realistic depictions that's actually quite attractive.

This may be the only rendering of a MLP:FiM character as a more realistic horse I've seen that also managed to capture the character's personality. Nice work!

Fabulous! As someone who has been trying to work on a semi-realistic style, I am in awe.

However, I do have one minor criticism: her pupils are so indefinite it kind of gives me the impression that her eyes are rolled, which is mildly disconcerting.

Otherwise, fantastic work...I have seen your work before, but for some strange reason I am not following you. I will have to change that.

this is the horse royalty wish they could have as their steed. but unfortunately for them, I doubt she'd appreciate their tacky saddles very much. and those blinders they put next to horses eyes are simply atrocious. no, this horse would remain untamed, free, and the most beautiful equine on the planet.

Indeed, Rarity must ALWAYS get her love... or else, right? [link] :lmao:

I'd call this one an equal success. Rarity's mouth and expression just fit perfectly, and I like how you did the subtle shading on her coat.

The direction of where Spike's eyes are point toward maybe questionable along with her general expression ;P, fantastic forms.

Loving the realistic mane six so far, can't wait to see Rainbow and Pinkie. If you have the time you should do some of the background ponies too.

If I have time I'm sure I'll do some of the bg ponies, but I'll need to see if I can get the mane 6 done first! Anyway, thank you for the compliment :D
