Rarity's new outfit by Baron-Engel Rarity's new outfit by Baron-Engel
Something from my Equestria dreamscape although not in the sequence of the current dream arc. This is actually jumping ahead a bit but it doesn't provide any spoilers and it gets my muse Petina to shut up for a while.

A few days ago while looking one at some new submissions from one of the FIM groups I belong to, I came across this image done by :iconjanji009: of Rarity all done up as this vampire goth link

Now Petina is the only character of mine who knows she's a product of my subconscious. Therefore she sees nothing wrong with either looking over my shoulder, or sitting on it, and looking or reading whatever I am looking at. And she's definitely not afraid to speak up and make her opinions known to me.

So the moment this artist's one piece popped up on my screen she immediately recommended I favorite it. Petina then began commenting on how Rarity did look quite nice in it and that I should try drawing Ponyville's resident fashion expert in my style with the same outfit or something similar. This nagging from my subconscious went on most of the day until finally Petina decided to stuff a scene into one of my dreams a night ago in which Petina was able to get Rarity to try on such an outfit so I'd have the appropriate "visual reference" to work from.

While it is not the kind of outfit Rarity usually wears she is not adverse to flattering and intimate style clothing link and she eventually ended up purchasing it for some "later occasion". Petina thought Spike would "really" like it.

To be continued.

And once again, Petina shall not be denied.  X3

In Petina's defense, Rarity does that outfit extremely well... although she wears pretty much any outfit well, so not sure where that leaves us...

Well Rarity would say it leaves us in Fabulousville and she is the Mayor! If she didn't say it then her Press Secretary Petina would brief us on it upon our arrival.

Well, this is why Petina was so insistent on me doing these sketches, and it does appear from your posting that Spike approves.

Well the effect wears off after few hours. Usually. Except for those rare cases where the effect is permanent. If he is still drooling on the books tomorrow then might want to considering take him to nurse Redheart. Question Spike doesn't have a thing for nurse to does he?

Petina taps a front hoof on her chin and thinks for a moment. "Maybe if you were to wear the same outfit then maybe Spike would pay just as much attention to you. It's just a theory, and it would require some "testing" but it could work."

She smiles at Twilight. "Are you game? You could even think of it as behavioral research."

Well, she can certainly "vamp" it up a little bit, can't she? Admittedly, when I first saw it, I thought the torso part was a corset, not a vest....

Yeah it is not a corset but the vest-like garment is designed to fit the wearer very snug and helps slim and shape the figure. Not as much as a corset but does have some slight ribbing and reinforcing to it's design, and at the moment the name of the garment is evading me. Need coffee.

A "later occasion" you say? And I agree with Petina. With an outfit like that, I'm sure Spike would love to be her Vampire minion. :lmao:

Baron, you never fail to impress. Both Rarity and that outfit look fantastic!

Yes this little scene just played two nights ago. The ongoing Equestria that I recently been posting is from over 12 months ago. Remember I am not even half way through season two.

And I agree with Petina. With an outfit like that, I'm sure Spike would love to be her Vampire minion.

There are probably quite ponies who would stand in line to join her ranks minions.

Wow. Why is it that Rarity looks so good in any number of outfits? Maybe that's why she's apparently quite the fashion expert in MLP:FIM.

I really like how you manage the 4 to 2 legs stance, even more when you have a pretty realistic way to draw ponies.

Nice work :)

Fortunately ponies in the FIM universe have a lot more flexibility in their spine and a wider range of movement in their joints than real ponies and horses in this world.

Yeah I quickly noticed that too, it feels less restrictive when drawing some actions, like dancing or fighting :p

Of course in the show the ponies also have another advantage. Their joints are wherever the animators need them, and their necks as long as they are needed for the scene. This works with animation and the art style but is not how they appear in my dreams. Still they have a much wider range of motion to them compared to real world equines.

Such as one instance in Luna Eclipsed where Luna cringes and her shoulder moves halfway up her neck.
