Queen of Diamonds by MykeGreywolf Queen of Diamonds by MykeGreywolf
This is the work I did for the first winner of my June request raffle, :iconbegle:. He asked for Rarity, sitting on a throne, portrayed as a powerful and unscrupulous mare, with some more design elements inspired by Magic: The Gathering lore. I hope this portrayal satisfies him.

I know that it looks quite similar in composition to my recent Fluttershy illustration [link], but I assure you that it is a total coincidence - even if I reused the seat cushion texture. :)

This is my first work that I streamed start to finish in my Livestream channel [link], and for which I accurately measured the execution time, which came to about 11 hours and 30 minutes.

EDIT: Fixed the faux-latin inscription text, as per :iconantie:'s kind suggestion, to make it less faux and more latin. Many thanks!

Thanks. This piece doesn't get much love, and I can see why - it has a few offputting problems with it, a result of my lack of experience. But I gave it my all, and I'm quite proud of it.

S'okay :)   (I don't know Latin, so that part kinda goes over my head and thus it looks all cool to me  >_>  <_<  shhh..)   Indeed Rar's nose/chin kinda look a bit funny, but that's okay too.. I like her posing and the picture as a whole, it reflects the amount of work you gave it. ^_^  Again, and your work is wayyy beyond my drawing skill level hehe, her mane/tail and the gemstones I'm really liking too..

Very good. I see it in the neogaf thread.

Salve!

No need to apologize! Google Translate does Latin very badly!

I suggest this for your Latin:

HIC EST THRONVS RARITATIS PLATINEAE / GRATIA CAELESTIAE ET LVNAE, QVAE REGINAE VNICORNIVM EQVESTRIANORVM SVNT

(Technical Latin-grammar-related note: I used a relative clause to get a handle on all of those genitives.)

Anyway, I love this time! Rarity is Best Pony!
