Rarity Wearing Armor II by PixelKitties Rarity Wearing Armor II by PixelKitties
Two days before leaving for Bronycon and my brain is an intriguing mixture of sleep deprivation, unbridled excitement, and abject terror. I pity Mr. Pixelkitties as he deals with me during this chaotic week of preparation and panic!

Here's an update to a pic I made for the Arist Training Grounds a while back.

I lost the original files but wanted to use the theme for a Bronycon poster, so I recreated it, hopefully improving it along the way.

TLDR- Rarity looks awesome wearing anything.

Great rarity. For some reason the lines under her eyes make her look older. Like she is a well experienced battle matron, perhaps in charge of managing the affairs of a small kingdom co-ruling with a grown up spike. I loved seeing rarity care about and defend spike in dragon quest:)

I read it in her voice the first time. I just expected it to be Rarity, so my mind always makes me hear their voices when I read a line by them.

Nice touch with Spike's gem in the center. Rarity is best commander/strategist!

The original was one of the first pieces of yours I ever favorited, and now, I have to say, I like this new version even better. You succeeded where a certain Mr. Lucas fails, you improved an original ;)

Amazing work as always.

I liked your original version of this picture.

I *LOVE* this one, though. You've made some wonderful improvements. In particular, I love that you changed out the gemstone on the breastplate for Spike's Fire Ruby, and gave her a larger, color-matched cape with it. The rest of the armor design was great to begin with and you've kept it that way.

And the way you've simplified the spears in the foreground appeals a lot to me. Like, they draw my eye in a unified direction now - right up to her cape, which pops out nicely against the new background color, and from there to Rarity herself.

Great work, all around. Have fun at Bronycon!

That's pretty frakkin' epic, but one thing in the description kinda threw me a bit: there's a Mr. Pixelkitties? Wish I had known that when I drew your birthday pic! He should've been in there with you.

With those lines under her eyes she looks like an older rarity. Im guessing this is in the distant future :)

I love the addition of those creases under her eyes! Really makes it look like her minds is a mixture of sleep deprivation and abject terror (minus the unbridled excitement), and she's about to deal with some serious shit.
