Well, I wanted to do the whole thing tonight, but between things coming up and Rarity’s mane and tail still being a total pain to draw, I only finished the sketch. It will be coloured sometime soon since I want to submit the colour version to the ATG week 5 bonus theme: draw a pony in socks. And Rarity is totally in socks in this drawing… a pile of ’em.
Getting the expression right was a bit tough, since I wanted her to look frusterated, but not particularly mad, which was surprisingly easy to end up crossing into. Aside from that, thepose will a little more effort than usual, but nothing really compared to the hair.
Edit: Rarity is now coloured! The trace work is starting to come pretty easily to me now. There wasn’t anything that really gave me much trouble. I had to adjust some of the socks to work with Rarity, since the lines for each respective part that I chose to go with from the sketch didn’t quite match up. I did also try to start drawing a true hand drawn background and… well, it looked really awful, so I trashed it and decided to leave that exercise for another night when I have time to mess around.
