The mandatory Miko. Some could say a Geisha would have been better for Rarity. But I don’t like the make up of a geisha.

On a personal note, I do not watch My Little Pony and generally do not view any forms of the media that surrounds it (i.e. the Brony community) unless of course I am on Deviant-ART.
Despite this, I think that this picture is an amazing piece of artwork that completely resembles the style that I have seen in the television series due to the high level of effort and determination that has clearly been placed in Rarity's structure in order to make this image successful! The shading is especially phenomenal as all of the colours used fit the original colours of the clothing/skin that they have been matched with and the ways that they have been used not only makes the picture look more professional but also balances the structure out more to maker the image seem 3D (In a 2D kind of way though).
The use of contrasting colours from a wide array on the colour palette is also useful to make the picture stand out more as well as not look too bland by only focusing on a specific colour (unless of course this was the image's intention in the first place although this is highly unlikely in this certain case)
Rarity's expression (Especially that devilish look on her face) also deserves praise as well as the costume that has been used. The idea to put her in this costume was great as well due to her love of clothing and fashion within the My Little Pony continuity.
Ultimately, the picture's idea is highly original and the theme that it appears to be conveying has been properly transmitted to the viewers (Including myself) ands the artwork itself is also brilliant. Whether you are a Brony or not, I believe that most should agree that this picture has clearly been done very well.

Oh much sugoi~ lol

Serious time.

The shading is really well done. I think the best part of this piece is the shading. I like how you mixed up and varied between hard and soft shading. It shows that you are not afraid of laying down color. Her eyes are done really nicely and they give her lots of personality and lots of expression. The tail is especially well shaded. The color has nice saturation and the gradient is nice and shows depth. The shading helps show that the form is well rendered.

The only problem I see is the lighting with the glow of her horn. Magic seems to be a source of light, so I think that should be taken into consideration. I think the lighting should have been a lighter and less saturated blue, more like highlights. the blue used as the highlights for this piece seem more like shadows.

The lines are really clean and flows well. I think it should be a it more varied with thickness. That is not to say this isn't good. At the end of the day this was really well done. Keep up with the good work good sir!

Rarity - "Oh My!  This place is definitely haunted by the spirits of the dead.

Anon - "WHAT!  Really!  Where?"

Rarity - "Are you blind?  That outfit is so last week.  Totally dead in the fashion world."

Rarity is a Shinto Priestess.
She is worthy of such a powerful title.
Spike could be her apprentice.
Bravo to this choice for Lady Rarity.

I love Inuyasha.

Ponies almost always ooze cute. Even Ms. Harshwhinny busted out the cute in Flight to the Finish.
