Oh gosh, nom nom nom. Here's Rarity!
MLP:FIM Episode Art! S04E23

This piece... those... clothes... hats... dresses, my gawd. Rarity and Spike time was fun though. She really seems used to having him around. All the little secret sharing and plans. With a nice lesson for Spike, who seems as oblivious to things as ever. But I guess for his age, that's normal. Especially if his dragon years scale similar to humans/ponies

Kept it rough this time haha, besides some stream derpage, those piles just what a task. In a way, turned out a bit better sooner than I thought. So I kept it and did some cheap adjustments on top to make it slightly better again. Had to spend time on Rarity and Spike as well right?

Both their faces were pretty fun to make. Did notice I've been changing my face styles closer to the show... again. I keep going back and forth :P Which isn't a bad thing at all. Keeps things fresh and ever changing.
Also, ended up not doing a greyscale for this one. Directly into colours, which goes better and better as well. Not sure if I want to stick to that fully. I want the advantages of both sides muaha

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoyed the episode. 2 more weeks right?

Once again, you hit the episode art wonderfully. I really love this episode! I also loved when Rarity turned Pinkie Pie's Party into a Fancy one! It made me burst out laughing when Pinkie was like "HUH?" Annyways, back to the artwork. I love the mane you gave Rarity and the piles of clothes all around her. Spike looks like he either tripped on something, or was frighten by Rarity. I also like the Sunflowers in the back. Very Summery. *Sunflowers are my favorite <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="395" title=":P (Lick)"/>* Also, What i like about your artwork is that you put things in the background making me want to see what they are. Great Job, AM!

I personally love this because of the way you depicted the dresses in the background. Rarity's face is very detailed and defined, while the dresses seem to almost melt together, almost all being the same. To me this almost shows that these dresses are no longer something special now that she has made so many by cheating.
I also love how Spike's face shows true horror at what his best "friend" has become because of what he did. The main problem that I have with this is that Spike's mouth kind of looks like an old woman's mouth, making him look weird.
Rarity's face sincerely looks like she's gone insane, and her frazzled hair is done very well, not only with the small hairs poking out, but also with the way that it is slightly off from the shape that we know.
Another thing that I like is how Spike's tail is depicting motion by being curved back.
Oh my gosh! Rarity with the green eyes was scary. However Twilight got messed up mane yet again (good call back when she has hair sticking out in "Lesson Zero"), because she had to undo dark magic

Loving Rarity in this pic.

Constructive minor critique: Spike's face is too round. Not enough cheek-bumps. But the body, despite the difficult angle, is spot-on.

Have to say it again: Loving Rarity in this pic.
