Vision: Nicely executed with a hilarious scenario I could see taking place in an episode or a short. The scene is straight forwards and the story behind it I would guess is also quite funny as to how the crab got there to begin with. Wonderfully done!

Originality: All artwork is an original, unless it's mass produced made on machines then one is original rest are copies, anyways I have not seen this type of scene drawn out nor had it ever really crossed my mind that I'd see Rarity terrified by a crab and hiding in the most adorable way with the most funny expression that speaks volumes and says it all to what she's feeling.

Technique: The expression in the eyes is, I want to say masterfully done, as eyes can say a lot about a person or pony in anything. The huge size with ears back just fuels the point she is scared and freaked out by this crab and the rolled up paper is just added humor to this scene. The rolled up paper has nice shading and love the aura of magic around it, showing Rarity's control of levitation with her weapon against the evil foe.

The shading brought about by the glow of her horn is nice as is the shading for the wardrobe and around the crab. Though for the crab if the piece had not been titled Rarity Vs Crab I would had thought it was a bug so perhaps a bit more of something perhaps a slight color hue on the crab? Or something to give a bit bore definition that it is a crab and not say a spider or some other bug that can come in a variety of sizes.

I love the coloring of Rarity's magic and I love how believable this would be with her personality, in my opinion, at times. Mainly I adore the eyes and love the surprise, I'll call them that, lines around her. It feels to me like it's emphasizing her "stay back! how did you get in here? I have a rolled up paper and I'm not afraid to use it!" though that is just my thought.

Impact: This had me cracking up laughing and sharing with my friend. It's very humorous and with the words stating she is fearing a crab made it nicer as I first thought it was a weird bug and I'm not a fan of bugs. In knowing it's to be a crab helped me to laugh and just love the emotion put into her and this scene.

Over all very funny, had me cracking up. The crab could have had some more definition to it to help better identify it as a crab in my opinion because I first thought it was a spider till I had read the title that it was a crab and I felt relived and started laughing. Other than the crab could had used a bit more detail to help better set it at first look "oh that is a crab" simply hilarious and very well done with great execution, especially on Rarity's face. The crab looks like it is simply trying to make friends and Rarity is having none of that in her shop/home and simply wants it to go away and isn't afraid to use a nearby item as a defense weapon. Great job!

The wardrobe meets the wall, and it looks a bit off. Perhaps a shadow of the wardrobe casting on the wall would help smooth it out? Also, I like how you used the cool blue tone /only/ for Rarity's magic (and not, say, the background). The cool tone when with the warm purple background instantly brings the viewer's attention to the things that are important (eg. the rolled up paper and Rarity's hilarious facial expression). It's really clever! Which brings me to my last point: Rarity's expression is told completly through her eyes and ears. You didn't didn't need her muzzle in picture and it emphasizes how she's hiding. Overall very cute, keep it up!

Heh heh heh.  Simple, but hilarious.  Terrific job on the use of negative space and how Rarity's expression speaks volumes of her even though we can't see much of her face.

I've seen comics about Rarity and crabs on dA before, but I have no idea where this phenomenon came from.
