Ponies Wearing Armor by PixelKitties Ponies Wearing Armor by PixelKitties
ATG Day 01 Ponies in Armor

Equestria Daily is doing there nifty Artist Training Ground again, and I have to say the theme this time looks to be a lot of fun! It's all about a mock war for Equestria, and getting the chance to mix ponies with action and adventure is too good to pass up!

The first assignment is "Ponies Wearing Armor" so, have some Legate Rarity looking out over her adoring legion!

Also, I stayed up WAY too late working on this thing!

Remade into less-craptastic version!

Why does that armor suit her so well?

Really awesome, I love the composition in this. All the lances in the foreground make Rarity stand out wonderfully.
Great job on her serious/concerned expression as well. It really carries the whole concept of the picture for me and brings a sense of danger to it that I'm not sure I'd feel otherwise!

Rarity never wanted to be in a war. She was a fashion designer, was being the operative word, for she had not practiced her craft for over eighteen months. Her store was destroyed during one of the first battles of Ponyville during the earlier days of the Equestrian Civil War. She fled with Twilight and Fluttershy to Canterlot, to join the Solar Empire. Sweetie Belle stayed behind with her parents. Having abandoned fashion for the time being, Rarity was assigned to the Arcane Development division in order to develop new spells to aid in the destruction of the forces of the New Lunar Republic. But as the Empires losses mount Celestia was forced to assign Rarity to her own Imperial Legion in order to aid in the Invasion of Dodge Junction. Being loyal to her assignment, Rarity accepted, donning her Legionnaire armor without complaint. However, when overseeing her troops. Her thoughts went to her family... Sweetie Belle and her parents had fled to Dodge Junction to escape the fighting. Rarity could only hope her letter got to them in time. Rarity ruefully thought of Spike and his fire breath, convincing him to send a letter would have been easy. But alas...Spike had defected to Colonel Applejack of the New Lunar Republic three weeks ago at the Second Siege of Manehatten.
