For some reason I really wanted to draw Rarity looking a little like Lana Del Rey. (Lana Del Rarity, eheh) I'm not sure why, I think it's the whole girly-ness and love of diamonds that got me to want to draw something like this. Plus I am a huge fan of Lana, freaking loooooove her songs. 
I based this pic off of this photo here:…

Anyway, I plan on selling this as a print at BUCK in August! 

I'm quite happy with this. I've tried this type of shading before, with Joen and Octavia and I have noticed my improvement with that type of shading. I have to say it's incredibly relaxing and definitely makes a change from my usual cell shading. What with this being just a portrait head shot I figured it'd be best to use this more detailed shading, although my Vinyl pic proved otherwise (but hey I wanted to have a change in shading style for once. uwu)
I didn't have any plans for the background so I painted on some dots and radial blurred them in photoshop. I was actually thinking about a plain black background but it didn't look right. Rarity needed more sparkles >:U

Ohgersh also I love the idea of Rarity with a beauty spot. :XD: It suits her so well. 

I think that's all I have to say for now. :) Other than I really enjoyed shading her eyes. <3 Oh, and I didn't draw her with her usual hairstyle, of course. >w<
