Practicing painting, I'm getting better at manes I think. Anyways I'm really happy with how this came out.
Rarity looks pretty here! Excellent job on her pretty face!
Some say she is annoying and prissy but then you look at her pulling a cute face like that and the voices in your head as a collective go 'awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww'.
now this is more like it, though i still prefer manes that look more "split ends" as you would say.
You say they look more realistic, but I don't think most artists who draw it like that are trying to make it look like split ends, it's an accident and therefor a flaw.
nice colors and look
