Rainbow Power Rarity by dstears Rainbow Power Rarity by dstears
This was basically just a learning exercise to try to emulate antiander's style, because it's rad. But I could not divine his secrets and had to resort to my normal coloring techniques in certain places. Her face ended up kinda dennybutty.
I also wanted to see if I could make the rainbow power effect a bit less gaudy for a pony like Rarity.

Here's a non-rainbow version:

This kind of subtlety versus the non-rainbow version would have been very welcome. When I saw it in the show, I was overwhelmed by the gaudy colors and the blatant toy-salesmanship of it all. This, on the other hoof, is a delight to behold. Thank you.

I'm glad you like it. I can kinda understand that they needed to match the show style, so it had to be big and bright. It just would have been nice if the colors had complimented each of them a bit better.

Ooh, it looks great! :D Only thing that strikes me as odd is the lack of nostrils, but I'm always impressed when artists get the R-Powers to look good! :)

Yeah, at some point I just stopped including nostrils on most of my ponies...not sure why, but I guess that's just a personal preference.

I like the subtle toned down rainbow elements, much more visually pleasing than how the show had them. Beautiful picture.

You did pretty damn good I must say! Nothing wrong with Dennybutt style as she's one of my favorites, as is Antiander. Speaking of which, I miss his stuff. Always wondered what happened to his DA account?

Besides, even if you didn't nail it, I like your style as is ;).

:icondstears:
dstears Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2015
Oh, I love Dennybutt's style too. It just was unintentional.

I'm not sure what happened to Antiander's account, but I'm glad it's back :iconantiander-art:
