The Illustrious Radiance by EuropaMaxima The Illustrious Radiance by EuropaMaxima
Hair is by far the bane of my existence, that being said I think this on came out rather well.

I sort of veered away from the traditional superhero motifs and went for something a bit more obscure.

Love her thighs, but I think you could've put the edge of the third diamond on there.

Except she's purple, which would make her closer to a Star Sapphire.

Right... There is a series at CN, but I guess they were Pink, not Magenta

based on what i read from the artists here at DA, Rarity's hair it's the bane of almost everyone, and yet, i've never saw a "bad" Rarity.

Nice, playful pose. I think i've saw that pose before, at modelling and at the old Image Comics. In fact, is it wasn't by the "curvy" bodylines, it would look a lot like RainMaker, from Gen 13, not on colors, but clothes.

Glad people like the hair.

 

Funnily enough I'd never heard of Rainmaker, when I was drawing out the designs for Radiance I was looking more along the lines of Zatanna, but I see what you mean with the Rainmaker costume.

tell me an "mtv gen", but i really miss the Gen13 comic... hopefully now with the "New 52" DC will include them often.

Wahahahaaaaa... I don't think hair is going to impact this negatively, because the rest of her... Oh my sweet goodness. The one closest to my heart after Twilight herself, looking like this...

Even so, you did a great job with her hair. That most complex style, with all the tone variance and highlights giving it such elaborate beauty and volume, is a pleasure to look at. Perhaps the one thing I'd wish for in regards to hair would be a more elaborate tail, but that's not as important on a humanoid figure.
As for the rest of her... First off, I really like the choice of colours in regards to each other. The shades of pink of increasing softness and pastel quality match up remarkably well with her skin colour, so well that they create a beautiful cascade of tones starting from her jacket and going all the way to the bare parts of her body. Quite fitting for Rarity, who could easily create such an impression with her own design. In addition to that, you did the shading very, very well here. The harder shadows on the jacket suggest a less smooth material, and then there's the use of shading for defining the form of her body... And well, suffice to say, I can't stop looking. The fullness of shapes you gave her is probably part of her arsenal, and it's accentuated very well here with the highlights on the skin and the very smooth bodysuit material, as well as the pose. The wide hips and pelvic area she has here are definitely helping that, too, and not helping me at all. And the same goes for those stunning eyes, further accentuated by the mask, and that small intrigued-looking smile.
The things I haven't mentioned yet are the way you did her hands, which looks properly elegant and fine-shaped for Rarity, including their pose, and the repeated diamond motif, which actually makes this costume work much better by providing a colour counterpoint and turning it from a mass of pinks into a much more appealing array. The same goes for the purple bit on her jacket's shoulder top.

Overall... Yes, I like very much. Until further notice, I'm hers.

Whenever I hit a wall with my art, I often times start comparing what I have with what other people have done, needless to say its never good to do that (for me anyway) I'm overly perfectionist like that, and that's more or less the reason I took so long with the hair, after that its the hands, up until last night she had none!

 

Despite that I'm really happy you liked it and I'll be sure to do more in the future :D
