Originally I just needed a reference sketch of how she might look as an adult as old as Twilight Sparkle is, but I wanted to give it some context if I was going to have it commissioned anyway. In this instance, Rarity is invited to a upscale ball and doesn't know that her sister is going to be the spotlight singer, and she's singing Taylor Swift's "The Best Day". It is meant to be Sweetie Bell's tribute to the best sister ever, and Rarity can't help but try (and fail) to hide her tears from the adoring attention of her little sister.
it almost makes my eyes teary too...
oh and you said this is part of your fanfic story..... do you have a link or something?
<?xml:namespace prefix = da /> Aww, that's so adorable! I love this picture, you did such a good job on it. I'm in paticular awe at how awsome you made Sweetie Bell look. My only gripe is that Rarity's coat is supposed to be white, not a lavender-ish purple like it is in this. Never the less, well done.
By the way, I found this pic while I was surfing DA -----> (Sieze them!) and was quite intrigued, both by the awsomeness of the scene depicted, as well as the fact that it was related to a fanfic. The artist who made the picture told me the fanfic to which the picture belonged was yours. Being a writer of MLP fanfiction myself, I was wondering where I could find/read this fic of yours, as I am quite eager to find out what happens to Twilight and co. From the looks of the picture, it kinda looks like their about to hang Twilight!
Aww... I had an image of a scene like this in my mind for a while, I can't believe I found a picture that was almost exactly as how I imagined it!
(just needed an older Spike by Rarity's side to have it complete my fantasy! ^_^ oh, and Sweetie Belle singing 'I'll be There' by MJ or Mariah Carey...)
