While the firelight-lighting is nice & I like the use of the saddle & veil, her eye-expression doesn't seem to match your description text at all. Creates a sort of disconnect, as though she's just chit-chatting in a public place with the viewer & the entire scene is just in the viewer's imagination/fantasy.
Were the "sultry eyes" too cliche? Or am I missing something?
Aha, so you just updated the original submission, huh? Kinda makes my first comment look a little random now, but that's okay.
Anyway, this turned out really nice, and the adjustments you made to her left legs work well. Hmm, I wonder what they would call this sort of saddle. Rarity looks lovely in it, in any case, like she's waiting for her prince to arrive.
Also, I find myself strangely curious what's in those containers on the mantle.
I really like how this one looks so far. It does take a moment to tell the lines apart, but the only thing I wonder about is if her left forehoof is quite touching the ground, and if it's too close on the ground to her left hind leg.
Is that fabric going to stay see-through? It looks neat that way.
