Rarity fighting giant crabs has been a thing for a while now. I had considered making my own interpretation, but never got around working on it. However, this week the *CutieArtCrusaders
had a fantastic episode full of crab battle
, and after that I couldn't resist the urge to give it a shot. So, my livestream yesterday started with this painting, which captures the epic adventures of Rarity in the land of crustaceans from yet another angle.
This painting was a lot of fun to work on. I'd made a pencil sketch the afternoon before the stream to get a basic idea of the composition. That way I was able to get quickly into the painting during the livestream. Rarity's weapons of choice are a set of lobster forks, as they were the most fitting instruments I could think of to slay large sea creatures.Watch a timelapse of the painting on YouTube: [link]
