This is a really like this artwork I really love Rarity's expression and her jewellery I especially like Rarity's nose stud it is a really nice touch I imagine that if she ever did get one she would have a real sapphire or diamond.
Hehe, you are far from the first to express dislike for the nose stud! I see it on so many people but I had no idea it was so controversial! Personally, I wouldn't get one out of fear of boogers coming through it or catching it on something (plus I'd hate to draw even more attention to my nose, lol!). To each their own!
Your works are really impressive! Rarity and other MLP characters on your pics looks alive and unfortunately other artists here just humanized ponies and added nothing from humans to their image, but you made something really interesting and very very unique! I've searched on DeviantArt for a long time and found nothing like that! You're very talented artist and author!!! P.S. And I think that nose stud adds to the final look to the Rarity's interesting image!
Far as I'm concerned, that stud livens up an already elegant mugshot. Peeps seem a bit excessively hung up on Rarity being a classical-in-every-respect lady, and frankly it reeks of homogenous fandom groupthink (and I use the 'think' part loosely).
If we disregard the stud for now, and focus on your work; it is very nice. The way you have posed her and captured the beauty of best pony is great! You have done a really great job with it, especially so with the eyes and hair. Keep it up!
