Have you ever seen the official video for ABBA's "Money money money" song? There was a moment, where one of their singers - Frida Lyngstad - was wearing a similar hat and was looking into the camera with a similar expression.
That is what this picture reminds me of :D Looks great, much like an older and somewhat flabbergasted Rarity ;)

I've never watched much ABBA, so thanks for telling me this. Now I have to check it out... :)

Implying that painting portraits isn't useful.

That looks like a fine somewhat older human Rarity. I can almost see the rest of her dress from here. It's magnificent yet elegantly simple, just the way she'd love it for a walk outdoors in summer.

You really got better with the clarity of the detail. You really did. You managed to reflect the interplay of light and shadow and the way the light affects the colours of the hair in a marvellous way. The same goes for the hat, and how you shift its lighting; you even manage to show the sort of fabric it's made of and its light-reflecting qualities. And that face. While the eye shape is a bit irregular, even for an eyebrow-raised thing, the nose and the lips and the chin and the cheeks are frankly fantastic in terms of precision of depiction and the richness of colour used. And the neck is quite good, too, even if I think the stretched bit to the left could be more towards the center. Even the background is beautifully detailed, and just enough to keep Rarity in the focus while still looking good. The impression those trees, or at least their middle and top parts, make feels realistic even despite this being a painterly piece.

Great job, I say! I would really like to see all the girls' portraits done in this humanized way.
