Best sketch I ever made. And of course I made some obvious edits using color and stuff in Turned out beautiful though and I plan on doing more stuff like this in the near future. I still wish I had a scanner though, the quality of the sketch would be much better if it were scanned rather than a photo. But then again, that separation between light and dark in the pink background wouldn't have been there if it weren't a photo so it's alright.

But yes, here is Rarity in all her glory. It was supposed to just be a regular sketch that I would digitize later but it turned out to be a super duper good sketch. Maybe I will digitize it someday though and make a desktop out of it. I have also thought of doing other pics like this of the other Mane 6. What do you guys think?

Feel free to leave a critique below, and by critique, I don't mean "Wow, this is awesome!" it must be more involved than that or I won't approve it.

Also, special thanks to :iconscobionicle99: for being an inspiration with this style.

This is really good work. The details of her mane and tail are quite well done. The shading and highlighting really gives you a good sense of their texture.

Now that I know you're probably going to make these into a series, I expect that you intend to make all the poses, more or less, just like this one. For the record, I like how you mixed it up just a bit by having Rarity's legs in alternating positions. It keeps it a little more interesting. However, her right hind leg looks a bit too forward for how out to the side it is. I would angle her leg so that her right hoof lands closer to her body, which would make it disappear behind her left hind-hoof, but it would be more posturally sound, in my opinion.

I like how soft the shading is here. The simple black-grey works well because she has a white coat to begin with. I might try to add some shading on her face a bit, especially around her ear and eyelid. Her face currently seems a bit flat compared to the rest of her body.

Still, overall a very great job here. I love that mane and tail to death. :D
