LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT RARITY.
Rarity has got to be one of the first “beautiful” character (meaning she wears makeup, spends time on her hair, admires fashion, ect) that isn’t used as the villain or stupid girl who is just there to look good and be adored by men.
She shows girls that it’s fucking OKAY to be glamorous and spend time thinking about how you look. Girls are often called sluts due to their appearance. Dark eyeshadow is something a “whore” wears. Fake eyelashes make you look like a “prostitute”. Yet at the same time they are SUPPOSED to put on makeup for boys. Who wins? Men anyway.
Yes, Rarity is interested in boys, but she called Prince Blueblood out on his bullshit and stood up for herself. What does this say? Ladies, and most importantly, gentlemen: she looks good for HERSELF. Not for you. For her.
Going back to the “girls who are beautiful are villains and/or stupid” argument. Think of a Disney princess who knows she is beautiful. Who do you think of? I think of the evil stepsisters, Rapunzel’s mother, Charlotte La Bouff from the Princess and the Frog, The Evil Queen in Snow white…. They are all well developed characters. But what do they have in common? Vanity! They all think of themselves as beautiful! And this trait is used as negative, self absorbed, or in Charlotte’s case, ends up she’s the dimwitted girl.
What do the princesses have in common? None of them call themselves beautiful. All of the princesses need to be told they are beautiful BY MEN. If they aren’t, then they are self absorbed. They need to be TOLD they are beautiful.
Rarity doesn’t stand for that.
Rarity is fully aware of her looks and taste in fashion. Yet this lovable lady stands up for her friends and is aware of their individual beauty as well.
In the end, yes, she is dramatic. yes, she is beautiful. yes, she wears makeup and gets her hair fucking permed and gets her hooves done at the spa. But guess what? She’s an amazing, smart, generous, caring, encouraging, supportive character who will stomp all over you and flip her hair while doing it.
I love this
well i feel bad now.
(I always felt like she was just pushing herself in the wrong way)
I ish sadz now
Okay, looked thru the 100+ notes on this, and i cant believe no one has brought this up.
The hell is up with portraying Soaring like this? what exactly of what was shown on the show would make anybody think he would say something like that?
Soarin was barely characterized in the show and the only thing shown of him was that he was BRO AS FUCK, i find hard to believe he would give such a dickish, selfish, RD level advice to a rookie.
Am i supposed to feel bad about her screwing up and putting the blame in someone else?
here’s a thought exercise for in between:
if someone were to ask your character angrily “what makes YOU so special?”, how would they react?
"Nothing. That’s kind of the problem"
i designed a (badly drawn) pony, her name is Sunday Delight. She has a story and stuff, but im not telling yet in case i actually go out and do what i designed her for.
My best friend Alix creates gorgeous custom My Little Ponies with delicate sculpting and crisp paint jobs! She’s currently offering some of her amazing customs for sale on her etsy page and takes custom orders on her website!
There is something that always amuses me about pony customs.
You see, most people in the net (idiots mostly) blame FiM and “Bronies” for the ponification of EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN (not to mention that making “your fandom” versions of shit in other fandoms is an standard procedure in Fandoms everywhere, just ask Sonic and Green Lantern) and totally fail to realize ponification has been a thing for DECADES.
OFFICIAL blank pony figures can be ordered to do this sort of thing, for pete’s sake!!
For the mascot challenge at oc art challenge, because i feel kind of bad that i havent done anything for the challenges in ages.
I dubbed this mare “Monocrome Dreams” because i like videogame music.
Oh gosh. The amount of messages I’m getting from people who thought I was a girl this whole time ( ;°Д°)
I know that feeling bro, i know that feeling
There isn’t a problem with experimenting with styles from time to time, but when you do nothing but complain and have a different art style for every single post, that’s when it gets kind of… annoying. I get it, almost all of us hate our art, but if you hate it that much then find your style. Please.- Submitted by askteenagediamondtiara
i dunno why i subjected myself to read this blog, since most complaints are asinine things, but this one was pretty funny to me because of just how plain contradictory it is.
well well, tell me young one, exactly how do you expect anybody to find their one art style if you want them to stop experimenting with different art style every time?
BUT WAIT! there is more! a page or two more down the road you will find another confession praising one specific artist’s ability to change the drawing style every time the artist draws something!
im having flashbacks to vampire savior.
