Fanart - MLP. Rarity's Anguish by jamescorck Fanart - MLP. Rarity's Anguish by jamescorck
I think I am going to do this as often as I can. I have found myself in a bizarre art drive lately, and ever since I stepped into the My Little Pony fandom I have yet to suffer an art block, so I will keep riding the wave while it lasts. Besides, it's fun and it makes me way happier than playing videogames, as well as making me feel busy and productive. Also, doing quick sketches like these ones, with minimalistic color and a lot of black and white contrast, is something I really enjoy. It's very clean also, being this a digital format. If I tried doing this on a sketchbook I would smudge everything with grafite.

So yes, expect more to come. A lot more. My poor tablet is groaning in pain, but I don't care.

In today's picture, we have Rarity, haunted by her own demons. When the random number generator pointed me to her name I threw a hand to my mouth and chuckled guiltily. It's the kind of laugh you make when they tell you a joke that is two notches too wrong to be funny, but you laugh at it anyways. I knew I was going to get mean on her, and I think I kind of did.

This is a personal fear of mine, this one I put Rarity into. The fear of failure, followed by oblivion. Sometimes we are scared of what is inside us, our insecurities and lack of confidence. We are afraid of vanishing and leaving no trace at the end of our lives. We want to leave an impact in the world, since that's the only way we can achieve inmortality. Rarity, like any artist, wants to leave her mark in the world. She wants to be noticed, and she wants ponies to love and admire her craft. So, when she fails to do so, I bet she goes to a dark place, with one lonely mirror, from which a green eyed monster stares at her for hours. I feel for her. I've been there more often than not.

Rarity comes from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and belongs to Hasbro.

May I use this art for a story I'm writing? It would suit it well. 

If permission is granted, I may ask to go a bit further and request that you allow me to slightly alter the image with a title. All credit will be given to you, and thank you very much for your consideration.

Sure, feel free to do so.

Also, don't worry if you want to add a title, it's perfectly fine. Just make sure to link the picture to my gallery so your readers know where it comes from :D
