Rainy Day Relaxations by Daniel-SG Rainy Day Relaxations by Daniel-SG
Rainy days don't have to be boring...
~~~~
Ugh, this took a lot longer than I had meant it too. That's part of why I did quite a number of just sketches. But it's done! That's what matters. :iconraritysmile2plz:

In case it wasn't obvious, the relationship between Rarity and her sister is my favorite one on the show. I know Applejack and Applebloom have one sorta, but it doesn't ring with me as well as Rarity and Sweetie Belle's does. Perhaps it reminds me of the relationship between my older brother and I when we were younger. :)

Sisterhoove Social is actually my favorite episode of the series, so I felt like doing something very much based off that. Chose the final part where they're doing each others hair, because I don't see much involving that. :nod:

Tried out a little different style than I usually do for this. Went for black outlines in this. I like how it came out, for the most part. Really like how Sweetie Belle's mane came out, myself. :meow: By the way, I spent nearly forty minutes on Rarity's left ear, oh my god! It wouldn't look right, and I finally just said "Whatever." So yeah, heh. ^^; Also, I finally did a real background! :idea:

I think it looks a million times better than just a blank background, but still. Not really happy with how it came out. Ah well. Baby steps, I suppose. :D

But enough of my jibber jabber! :blahblah: I hope everybody likes this! Had a creepy idea that I plan to do next! Stay frosty, my friends. :)

MLP belongs to Hasbro.

İ shall be honest when i say that this is a great work, However the concept is pretty generic which kills the originality a little. Other than that, İ like how you drew both the background and ponies in a good shape. Both Rarirty and Sweetie Belle look adorable and a touch of your style makes the picture even better. İ'm actually impressed by the stunning detail on the shadings and the eyes, Their eyes look awesome as if they were not eyes and just a few pieces of lost jewelry. The way you drew both the ponies is amazing and i'm actually looking forward to your next works of 1337ness. (Sorry if my grammar is bad, English is not my native language)

You know, I find it kind of funny that the fandom of MLP taps into the gratuitous cuteness more than the actual show does... at least sometimes. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This one, for the most part, works.

One stormy day, the sisters stay inside and have a little makeover session.
The idea is cute, the artist's stylistic design and technique makes for an overall cute picture. I've reviewed some of the artist's previous work, and some of his aesthetic choices concerning the character design have caught my attention in the past. Looking closer at this piece I see that some of these stylistic choices are still present. These include the way the artist designs draws the horns. I find it kind of funny that little Sweetie Belle's horn is just as big as her older sister's. However, choices like this, which might have caught my attention in some of his previous works, don't seem very apparent in this one. Either that, or I'm just losing touch.

Not much more to say about this one. I like it. It's very cute.
You've probably heard that already, though.

Cheers

Oh, I didn't actually design it per say, it was based off of that image of them at the end of Sisterhoove Social where they do each others hair. I pretty much just drew that, rofl. I don't have a link to it though (typing from phones is annoying. :()

Hooray indeed! I love when older siblings bond with younger in fiction. Plus, the fact that my favorite pony and favorite filly are related has nothing to do with it, I swear. :iconapplejackislyingplz:
