Commission: Wet-Mane Rarity by WhiteDiamondsLtd Commission: Wet-Mane Rarity by WhiteDiamondsLtd
Yes indeed, I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later!

This commission was done for a friend of mine, who very simply wanted a picture of our favorite fashion pony with her hair down (dampness not necessarily required). I was excited to see if I could put my own unique spin on the idea since of course, wet-maned Rarity had a bit of a popularity surge following Sisterhooves Social, and I suppose the way that I most significantly sought to do that was to approach the subject from a less-than-sultry angle as many artists seem inclined to do. In all honesty, my understanding of Rarity's character is that she might actually be a bit shy to be seen in such a state (and especially if she knew anything about how much of her audience seems to view her as such), and I wanted to reflect that accordingly with her posture and expression here; she's posing, but perhaps somewhat hesitantly as I think she'd prefer to be viewed with her trademark elaborately-coiffed mane and tail (with which I can sympathize!).

EDIT: And very belatedly, months after posting this originally I think I will edit the title just a little bit for clarification purposes. :roll:

Haha, well thank you very much. Rarity really must take all of the credit for that, I think!

I do love Rarity's trademark curls I have to say, but it's undeniable that she is a lovely pony whichever way she might happen to style her mane!

Hahaha, in my own little corner of the pony-fandom Rarity would never even consider calling to Spike in such a context. Applejack on the other hand, perhaps! ^_~

Awesome piece. Was wondering if it was OK if I could borrow, with credit, for some cover art for a pic? Thanks either way!

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it! In regards to using this image for a cover artwork, I personally wouldn't have a problem with it, but in this instance it was a commissioned piece of course so if you would like to be on the very safe side you might want to ask my client as well, who has an account here under the name of ~Favooo. Regretfully, I'm not sure how often he might check his messages here, but it might bear trying...

Either way, thank you again for the comment and for asking permission, I appreciate it.
