This commission was done for the very tasteful ~Forderz, who came to me wanting a scene of wet-haired, steampunk Rarity out and about in the elements, and looking appropriately disgruntled for this fact. The picture was influenced to a certain extent by Forderz's fondness of this fabulous composition, ""Rarity IS Industry, which very much helped to inspire me in creating a proper mood for the piece.
Also, even though I knew that the manestyle at least would not be used I created a page of concept art for the piece, to ensure a better grasp on the outfit that I designed for Rarity. All in all, despite the many challenges I have to say I enjoyed working on this project immensely! Alternate source
