It's quite startling to me just how evil Rarity can look. XD
For those of you familiar with Walt Disney World's "The Haunted Mansion", and Disney Land's as well, you probably remember the stretching portraits from the pre-show. They were my favorite thing about the entire ride, and I just couldn't resist doing them pony style!
And now, the second in the series, Rarity. I will be doing one for all four of the original portraits from the haunted mansion, and maybe one or two other things from the ride. Next up, Twilight!
Here's a link to the ones from the ride if you want to see them as well: [link] Alt Link: [link]
And Rarity, why must you have a hideously complex mane and tail! >.>
EDIT 3/15/12: Updated some of the strokes to things I didn't know how to do at the time I originally made it, exported the file to be larger, and fixed a few errors.

Dear god....Rarity as The Black Widow Bride: Constance Hatcheway?! HIDE YOUR FOALS....HIDE YOUR COLTS...HIDE YOUR STALLIONS....SHE WILL BUCKING KILL YOU!...I knew I could never trust you Rarity, I always knew you were pure evil underneath.....No no no, wait, what are you doing with that hatchet...NO, YOU WILL NOT SILENCE ME! I WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT....COWARDS! CO-WARDS!!
SPOILER ALERT: Actually, you're going down. Most of the ride is underground, due to lack of space in the actual mansion. Disney needed a way to get you from above to below ground, while still keeping the creepy atmosphere. The stretching room was his solution.
