Fanart - MLP. Rarity's Relief

Direct sequel to this picture [link]

I think I will always remember the making of this drawing, since it happened during probably one of the most depressing days of my life. I won't bore you with the details, but let's say that if the drawing feels moodier than usual that's because a lot of my feels went into it. It's kind of interesting how I started with the depressing pictures when I was somewhat cheerie, and I'm going on the happy/uplifting ones when I am feeling down. Perhaps is the best I can do, it's the best option, get onto the happy ones when I feel sad, that way I will cheer up. However, this picture made me crave for a hug so badly.

Out of all the relationships in Friendship is Magic, I think my favorite one is the sisterhood between Rarity and Sweetie Belle. Sibbling relationships are one of the strongest points of this show, since they feel very real. It's no surprise that the characters in this cartoon sound and act like real people, even though they are colourful equines. So it's impossible for me to not feel attatched to brothers and sisters and how they feel towards each other.

That's the most important aspect of this drawing, to have a significant other to pull you out of the dumps. We can't pul through life alone, we always need someone's support. Always. Those who think can do it alone are wrong, and stupid. Counting on others for emotional support is always a necesity of us as a species. We want to feel supported, and it's when we feel those people backing us when we feel the strongest, the most decided, the most beloved. All the worry in the World vanishes, and all that matters is the breath of that person on your shoulder, her hair on your cheek and her chest beating against yours. That's what counts.

Rarity and Sweetie Belle come from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and belongs to Hasbro.

Nice pic, I find Rarity sometimes to be left out and sad, but her sister, Sweetie Belle always has that feeling to cheer her up, even with hugs.

Daww, her sister is always there to comfort her when she's sad.

I never had the chance to draw Rarity and Sweetie looking adorable. Now I feel better about myself.

It's Sweetie Belle's biggest strength.

I thought her biggest strength was singing...
I like this biggest strength better, though.
